Act-i-vate party and exhibition on 5/2/09 at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn. I'm listening to comix artist and impresario Dean Haspiel, founder of Act-i-vate, and on my right is my brother, New York photographer Chris Smith. The hair on the left belongs to my old college bud, atheist and author Nica Lalli.

My daughter Charlotte says what she thinks about the comic she's stuck in.
