Today was the release party for Britt Aamodt’s new book “Superheroes, Strip Artists and Talking Animals”. The party featured an art gallery displaying original comic art from the book. The event took place at Arts Alliance in Elk River.
My wife Amy and I took a little day trip and arrived about a half hour after the event started, which is strange for me as I am always an hour early for everything. The art gallery was filled with people as well as contributing cartoonists signing copies of the book.
Some of the cartoonists there were Ryan Dow, Steve Stwalley, Kevin Cannon, Danno, Dan Murphy, Dan Olson, Ken Avidor, Kirk Anderson and Andy Singer. After a few minutes I pulled up a chair and starting signing books as well.
After signing a few books I got up and chatted with a few people. Here’s me talking with Ken Avidor as we admired some artwork by Doug Mahnke, one my favorite superhero comic book artists.
Oh hey! It’s author Britt Aamodt! Hi Britt!
Then Amy made me get in the picture too.
The art gallery featured art by the cartoonists at the event as well as a few others such as Bud Burgy, Will Dinski, and Jon Sloan.
It was a fun afternoon and I hope there’s more signings to promote Britt’s awesome book.
