Comic-Con 2007!

This picture is a completely inaccurate representation of what being that the con is like. Instead of an open roomy booth, image it stuffed with lots of cool Flight folk. Instead of my lone prints on the table, imagine it packed with numerous little comic books and art goodies and what-nots. Instead of no people in sight, imagine endless crowds. Instead of Stephen at my side, imagine him kindly getting me sandwiches and food to eat. And instead of me standing up, imagine me curled on the floor behind the booth doing a sketch, signing a book, rolling a poster or trying to keep track of what prints I'm selling.

So yeah! It was SO much fun. I was thrilled to meet some of the wonderful people who encourage me on this blog, hang out with the wonderful wonderful Flight contributers, reunite with some Sheridan buddies, see old DNA alumni, connect with friends from my current job at Rainmaker, talk to the wonderful guys from Blue Sky who were sharing our booth, meet up with some inspiring Drawergeekers, Parablers, and bloggers, not to mention meet a whole slew of new people.

Keep an eye out for new art next week as I'll be home in Texas (and therefore have a scanner again! Yay!). Also stay tuned for an exciting announcement about a third anthology I've contributed to this past year... :)

It was fun to get to meet you. The prints are The Awesome.

Now I'm really curious about the third anthology. I'm not even sure about the second - is that Parable? Is it even out yet?

Hey Sarah, Glad you had a good time in San Diego. I'll be there next week for Siggy. Are you gonna put you're prints up anywhere online for us other folks to pick up? Huh, huh, huh?

man- jen and stephen would have got along great. she's my little caterer too at conventions (only not little, cause she's, y'know, taller than me). :)

Thanks Mish, Steve, Alex and Jeremy!

Tyson, yes the second is Parable. :)

Matthew, I hope to have the prints up online soon, as well as new prints added now and then.

Jessie, it would be so nice to meet you next year. I'm not sure yet if I'm going either, so I'll keep you posted. :)

And it was nice to meet you too Dave!

Ah, no wonder I didn't see your prints. You were at the Flight Booth! I could barely get to the table to see anything (or anyone) every time I passed by, so I just gave up. Ah well, maybe next time!
