My Convention Sketchbook 2003-2013 #21 Raina Telgemeier

This is a nice story.  Years and years I’d see cartoonist Raina Telgemeier selling her hand-made mini-comics at conventions.  Her work has always been fun, charming, and spoke honestly about her life.  Now years later, she’s gone on to have multiple books published by Scholastic(Smile, Drama, etc.), and she travels around the country to different schools doing interactive readings of her work.  So, it just goes to show you, if your work has a unique point of view, and you’re persistent, something amazing might happen like it did for Raina!(or you’ll eventually crash and burn in flames of obscurity…)
