So how was my time there?
It was great! I loved it to bits and I realize I want to do things like this for forever!
So here are some pictures and such ^^
We started the trip at 08:14 on Thursday morning ^^ It was a beautiful day, sunny and chilly, a perfect day for a 4 and a half hour train-ride.
We arrived at Stockholm's Central Station at 12:40 and then started off by panicking over things like luggage and such (or rather... I watched the others do that while I waited for them to finish XD).
We then set off in different groups, Stef Gaines (:devspheru:) to her parents and Lisa Medin to her boyfriend, I went with Valentin (:devdagvalentin:) and his mum. We had lunch and then spent the rest of the day walking around town taking pictures and stuff.
We found this HUGE Birch tree on Thursday so I just had to get a picture of the trunk.
Then I went to a seminar held by Galago (an indie comic book) about the industry. I then went to Stef Gaines and slept at their house. ^^
Day two was pretty much the same as day one, spent the day walking around after having been to Serieteket to register and such... Bought a new dress to wear on Lisa Medin's release party that evening ^^ Then we went and had some hamburgers and hot dogs under the cherry trees on Kungstorget (King's Square).
Then we went with Lisa and the rest to Street (a hip pub by the channel in Stockholm)
Here's Stef being drunk and funny XD
Valentin, Robin (:devstyggelse:) and me...
Then we went home and slept again.
The day after was started early because we had tables to set up and things to do. I and Robin set up the School's table and I also set up mine and Valentin's table.
School's table... and Robin by it XD.
More setting up around SPX...
Stef and her boyfriend Kent...
Lisa and Antilla (an arranger of SPX)
Old friends ^^
That day was also the day of the SPX dinner (which was a disaster but whatever) I got my chance to take a picture of Stan Sakai (creator of Usagi Yojimbo) and Chris Staros from Top Shelf Productions http://www.topshelfcomix.com/ Which was awesome.
Mr Sakai and Mr Staros...
...and me with them XD It was their idea ^^;;
So we ate dinner and then had a nice evening at Stef's place watching The Wall by Pink Floyd.
The last day of SPX was calmer but still fun ^^ Mr Staros had a look at our stuff and that was awesome. I went home that evening by night bus... came home about 07.05 the next morning, went straight to school and spent the day listening to Chris Staros talking about the industry and how it looks in the US.
Alice Engström (:devmiss-collie:) and Valentin doing the Domokun thing XD
And that was my AWESOME weekend at SPX!
