COMIC-CON RECAP

I am very glad that Baltimore Comic-Con was the last event on this round of book appearances. The vibe was completely different than the other conventions I've done with an emphasis on artist and creators rather than tier three celebrities and sword vendors.  It was a great experience... including meeting a person that bought my book at an earlier event with crazy things to say, like that my book inspired them to return to creative projects of their own.  Here is me actin' natural at the syphilis awareness booth...

I also met the author of my all-time favorite graphic novel, Stan Sakai, on three occasions. He sketched and autographed my copies of his books (one from 1989) and I gave him a copy of my book.  This was the first time I'd met a person that I only knew through their 'work' and actually had a lot to say (DMC at BWI included).  If you know me, I've probably insisted that you read something of his because the stories are so heartfelt and fun.  Stan certainly seemed like a sweet person.  I hope he isn't offended by the horses doing it on page 2 of The Sword of Reason.

CONTESTS

I've been on Deviant Art for several years, posting for my 15 year old Romanian fan-base, but have always ignored the contests.  Until this week.  The contests seem to generate a lot of traffic, so I made an ITS-styled entry for the Plans Gone Wrong contest,which needed to reference stock images of a light, a panda and some pie.  And another for the How Do I Drink Dr. Pepper mural contest... in high heels with some prairie dogs on my back, of course.

TEST ANIMATION

A very faint, very brief test animation created this weekend with the indomitable Heather Boaz (also my 300th blog entry, for what that is worth)...

More (vibrant) cats in holes and I Taste Sound animations to come...
