Baltimore Con was a blast! My friends Beth and Liz came all the way from Indiana and Florida to help me at the show, and let me say, without them it would’ve just been insane. IN. SANE. So… Thanks girls!!
If you want to see the rest of my pics, by all means read on…
Before the convention, I took commissions for drawings from my site at DeviantART. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but I pretty much looked like this all weekend:
(Pencil behind my ear, bristol board on my lap and an expression that says,
“Am I laughing or am I crying…? Laughing? Good.”)
Here’s one such commission with the happy recipients, Steve and Kevin from Wizard Magazine:
(Steve asked me to draw Oracle playing chess with Katara.
The result is hilarious, apparently Katara is a sore loser.) ;)
Cons are good for seeing old friends like Brian Maize and Goatboy…
And making new ones, like Scott Sava…
And Jenny Frison, who has been painting the (beautiful) variant covers for The Dreamer…
(Aww, look, that’s Bea on her sign!!!)
We even got to meet a lot of you. Apparently even Poison Ivy loves The Dreamer!
Saturday night, Kevin and Steve Sunu and friends were kind enough to take us to a crazy little dive called The Paper Moon Cafe. There were action figures, baby dolls, and mannequins everywhere.
(I’m not exactly sure what we were trying to do in this photo but… there were a lot o’ boobs…)
So… we took another, more kid friendly pic. Pez!
Even though neither of them had ever been to a comic convention before, the “Dreamer Girls” Beth & Liz seemed to have a good time:
Beth launched the trailer she made for The Dreamer! (and… if you haven’t seen it yet, go back to yesterday’s blog! It’s phenomenal!)
And Liz couldn’t resists cutesy 3-PO’s charms:
(If Liz looks familiar, she should. She was my inspiration for Bea.
Oh, and that’s me in the background doing guess what? Commissions! O___o )
Baltimore is a crazy cool town, and I haven’t been there in awhile so it was awesome to go back…
But… the weekend left us feeling pretty much like this:
It was awesome meeting all of you!! Well, that’s it for Convention Season ’08 for me! Till next year…
