Farpoint Gothic

It’s always good to have your silliness be someone else’s fault. I get to blame Bonita Friedericy.

Bonita was a guest at Farpoint in 2011. Eight years after Snowcon, and the year it finally occurred to me to ask the guests to pose for photos with The Snow Shovel. Rather than pose with the shovel by herself, Bonita suggested we should stand together, like the couple in Grant Wood’s “American Gothic” painting.

And so a meme was born… (view the gallery)
