emerald city comic con sketches
so this was my first time having a table at a comic con...it was fun. It was really slow, but fun. I got to meet Patrick Morgan, Alberto Ruiz, and Stephen Silver...three of the greats. I also shook the hand of hotty Gigi Edgley, who also got a copy of the sketchbook...but from bart. She's a little too skinny for my tastes...don't get me wrong, she's hot, but..eh....I'll take Huddle over her anyday...which is prolly good...seeing as she's my wife and all...giggle.
The above crappiness is random sketches from the con....I don't think my style of art (poorly designed animation characters, but with great nipples) is a big fit at the Emerald City Comic Con. A couple of people asked me to draw Wolverine and Dr. Doom...I didn't grow up reading comics, I grew up watching Tex Avery cartoons, Felix the Cat, and Popeye cartoons...so it was a good thing that they had really crappy reference drawings. They didn't even buy a sketchbook, and it was only THREE BUCKS!!! sheesh. Then there was that one guy who wanted me to draw someone eating pie. weird...he even asked Mr. Shane White to draw himself eating pie...his reply? "I don't like pie"...giggle...thanks to shane white who gave my stomach and cheek muscles a work out...that kid is hi-larious. and he also gave me some carrots and a pea pod. which was nice. He's nice. And thanks to Bartski for being there with me...he's a helluva guy...a good drinkin' buddy and great friend...sniff...I promised myslef I wouldn't cry....there. I'm done. anyhoo...thanks for reading this...talk atchu later.
ps. don't forget to check out Karin and Ed's blogs to check out the photos of the event. nice.
