Yesterday I was at Little Rock Comic Con for the first time. It’s a pretty small and new con and when I first got there it was a little bumpy. I was set up in the lobby and a little confused since I hadn’t even seen what was going on inside. They just filled up a lot faster than they expected I think. I think things got away from them in the planning department so they did what they could to accommodate. My hat is off to them though. It wasn’t long before I was inside at a regular table and everyone was super nice and helpful. For all of my grumbling at the rocky start, the staff was fantastic and did a tremendously great job. I was happy to hear that the attendance far exceeded expectations. I was also pleasantly surprised at how busy I stayed. I was talking to people and working on drawings pretty much non stop the whole day through. People were really into THE CABINET pages I brought out to show and I’m even more excited to get the book into peoples hands now! I even sold a page from THE CABINET. It was the first I’ve let go of but, I know it is in a good home.
I talked to so many kids wanting to draw comics or that are already doing their own comics, it was very, very awesome. I even got to do a drawing of one girls character, one of the high points of the show for me!
It was also awesome to see Ryan Wheaton again and talk for a bit.
Thanks to everyone who came out and chatted, took a second to look through my stuff and just supported me and the other artists there!!
