Stumptown Comics Fest 2011

This last weekend was Stumptown Comics Fest 2011. Unfortunately I only went for a few hours both days due to a nasty case of food poisoning; also, I must confess that I'm not a fan of the decision to move the con from the Doubletree Hotel to the Oregon Convention Center. The OCC felt too big and impersonal and showy, like holding a wedding in a football stadium.

At the same time I recognize the necessity of the move: the Doubletree was simply not big enough anymore. I feel like Stumptown has reached its awkward teenage years as a con, where its feet and head are huge but its limbs haven't quite filled in yet. Right now the Convention Center is way too big a space, and that really killed the energy of the con. Hopefully that'll change in a couple of years as the con continues to grow.

On the bright side, I did get to introduce my niece and her girlfriend to DAR! So there's that.
