Comic Con



In a few weeks, I'll be attending the San Diego Comic Convention again (http://www.comic-con.org/). It's always a great time. I get to bump into old friends and check out some really cool stuff such as artwork, toys, new art supplies, books, books, and more books. I'll also be talking to prospective students for CCS as well. What makes this year's convention really interesting for me is that I've also invited a handful of recent grads and a few students to San Diego. Some of these folks are accustomed to comic conventions (not to the size of this one though) but some aren't.

The above artwork is my take or observation on just some of the people that attend this convention. I figured I'd at least let the comic convention virgins know who they're liable to bump into. For the most part, most of these convention people are harmless and actually have a lot of fun at these shows. One has to applaud them for their bravery & courage for dressing like this in public too! Also if it wasn't for these sort of rabid fans, our industry would be kaput.

Oh great... I've been reduced to pimping CCS to prospective students so Lauren can torture the fresh meat. Heck, if they meet me at the Con, they've already been soiled.
