bobo_dreams not only draws KID ZERO for act_i_vate but he takes the most amazing photographs of our events, too.
The one year anniversary of act_i_vate was a phenomenal success and a cheerful validation of our group efforts to provide free daily web-comix. And, despite technical difficulties [we had so many juicy visuals planned to project across the wide TV screens like liquid comix butter], jahfurry commandeered an amazing soiree and even chatted in dancehall free style [aided by the electronic improv of Mark Denardo], before the mic went south in the middle of my toast. Act-i-vator's as far as Boston and Toronto partook [thanks Paul & Chip], and fans as far as Pennsylvania travelled to our east village destination. From 6PM until almost midnight, the joint swarmed with creators and readers and friends and family and movers and shakers and everyone inbetween met with hugs galore. I suspect we'll need two days for our second anniversary. My favorite part of the night happened early on when my beloved mother surprised me having made the three-hour drive from the Catskill mountains to wish her son a "Happy Anniversary." Thx, mama!
