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!!
Now, Time to get ready for Heroes! A little flying thingy of some type may have told me that THE CABINET is printed and off for binding. Look for that, Christian Sager, EC Steiner and me!
Hopefully I’ll post again before the show. For now, here’s another commission I just wrapped up…
