Back from Con~
Wooooo I am back~ Utterly spent. 5 days of con is really too much to handle for anyone, but especially for the ones that usually just stare at computer screen all day~ i am not used to seeing so much faces!! In the end everyone melted into each other and i couldn't even recognize a college friend(Sorry Ron!!). and i made a fool of myself with Mike Mignola. Again. It's like a tradition now. I go to his booth, i leave with a signed book and 4 question marks in my head,"WHY did i say that????" i really love his work too much for my own good. Oh swell.
The last day our group went to a Steakhouse called "Strip Club". when we sat down i was already falling asleep on my feet. On the menu we found out this interesting aspect to the place: we are all supposed to grill the steaks ourselves. I complainted to the waitress, "i am so tired! Can't i get it cooked for me?" She said "No~". Fine. and then when she came to take our drink order, i asked "Do you have milkshakes?" She said "this is not Fuddruckers(?). we don't have milkshakes." i don't usually complain so much to strangers, so i took it as a well deserved retort. But what happened to those nice places in the movies, where you lie back and beautiful women feed grapes to you huh? You have to cook a 40 dollar fillet mignon yourself these days.
Bottom line, comic con is way fun to spend money, not so much when you are trying to make it. I did get some time to see crazy awesome demos by some of my favorite artists, so that was great. and a big thanks to everyone that enjoyed my prints! I even bought a Rick Berry Painting!! i will upload a pic of it later since it's still in SD at my friend's house. His method of working was truly inspirational.
