SizeCon 2023

SizeCon is back for 2023, back in-person and back in northeastern New Jersey. The last in-person SizeCon was in February 2020, and they’ve spent the last three years doing “micro” virtual conventions. Curiously, I haven’t been able to find any current discussion of vaccination or mask requirements.

June 2-4 in Piscataway-Somerset, NJ. Follow the link for the deets. The site also has an invite to their Discord server where you can pre-socialize. I expect there will also be updates on their Twitter.

Larry Philby, RIP

I never met Larry Philby, never communicated with him, never really saw much of his art. What I know of him is solely due to SizeCon. He figured largely in many after-action reports, a generous spirit full of stories that made everyone feel accepted. It seems he found his own personal size community well before the internet made it much easier, which still gobsmacks me to think about. Seeing photos of him sharing his art made me chagrined that I ever thought a size get-together was beneath me.

Seize your joys while you can.
