And last but not least…

Seen driving by the Aria. I take it this is the standard vehicle for all artists in attendance.

So that wraps another fantastic Autoptic Arts Festival.
This is a great show in that it is artist centric and really highlights the talent of the comic art community here in the Twin Cities.

Many thanks to all the hard working organizers who put on a great show.
All I can say in closing is that I’m already looking forward to the next one!
