For the past couple of years, I’ve been attending the MOCCA (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) Festival held at the Lexington Avenue Armory. There, I trade comics with other artists and revel in the geekery. One of my favorite things I walked away with this year was a print by Danish artist Rikke Bakman.

The artist sold paintings for as much as $24,000, and celebrated her second birthday during her first exhibit in Australia. Read More
