SCF2007 Photo Pool
For the visually-oriented among you, there's a new Stumptown Comics Fest 2007 flickr pool, so far with photos from the private pre-party hosted by organizers Kip Manley and Jenn Manley-Lee, and my photos from yesterday (sorry about the blurry ones, I'll weed those out later). if you've taken photos at the Fest, feel free to join the group and post away! Special thanks to official Stumptown photographers Joshin Yamada and Glenn Peters for taking so many excellent table-portraits, and for setting up the photo pool!
