A Valentine’s Day March

There is a heart in my hand…

This photograph always makes me smile. It is from the Winnipeg Comic Con 2012 banner. The handprint belonged to a young boy, about 11 year’s old (I think). He was with his family and I don’t remember if he was in a costume. There were a lot of people around my booth and I wasn’t…

Only 4.5%…
