MoCCA 2013

Published by at 10:22 am under reviews

I had a great time last Saturday at MoCCA. I think the Society of Illustrators did a good job picking up the ball and running with it, keeping a great show great. They added some lovely touches like a cafe and an original art show. The programming didn’t excite me all that much, but I rarely get to most of the panels anyway because I find it takes most of the day to see what’s at the tables.

Even so, I always feel like I miss a lot. For example I missed most of the pieces selected for ‘best of show’ type prizes this year. But here are a few things I bought or noted I need to get later.

Seven Samurai prints and art book by http://www.gregthings.com/

I heard http://www.lucyknisley.com/ sold out of her new book, Relish, and I can’t say I’m surprised, as it’s beautiful.

Unfortunately missed http://jilliantamaki.com/ this year.

“The Greatest of All Time Comics Anthology” from Ninth Art Press and members of the Boston Comics Roundtable, Jesse Lonergan and Dan Mazur

There’s a giant pile o’ books I need to buy from Self Made Hero, especially their Don Quixote.

Top Shelf is now officially so cool they don’t need a sign over their table.

Met the brilliant Gabrielle Bell and got her new book The Voyeurs.

…and much more!

That’s a small sample of the highlights as I saw ’em. Bottom line, MoCCA continues to be a great show, with more gorgeous work on display than you can shake a stick at.
