We cling to our memories as if they define us. But they don’t. Our actions do.
-Ghost in the Shell (2017)
It is a First Principle for me that I support artists. And when I have the opportunity to meet one whose work I love, I like to show some gratitude.
Which leaves a conundrum. How, at a comic convention, do I support the creator, start a conversation, show appreciation, but not bring any of their Things home?
