Thanks to all the artists, attendees, and MoCCA staff & volunteers for helping make the 2010
MoCCA Art Festival our most successful ever! We sold out of numerous titles, some within hours (and to the chagrin of our artists who ran out of books to sign — sorry!), and had mobs of fans turn out for our signings.
I took a load of photos; some highlights are below, followed by an embedded slideshow with lots more shots (which you can also view
full screen) and a mosaic of thumbnails to browse. You can also browse the full set of photos with captions on our Flickr page.
