So we had a really great time at Comicon. From what I understand, it's a pretty small show... but it's the only show I've ever been to (we've gone twice). This time we dressed up. It was a good excuse to wear the renn faire gear, and it seemed like every few steps someone wanted to take our picture. There were tons of cool costumes, we met some really awesome artists and I bought more prints than I have wall space for. (I'm going to have to figure out how to start plastering the ceiling of the art lair without damaging the prints.) Most of the prints I got were signed by the artist, and I was incredibly happy to be able to get a Deadpool print signed by Rob Liefeld for one of my best friends. (Who luckily doesn't check my DA and doesn't know he's getting it.)
I didn't have as much time to look around or speak to artists at the Tattoo Convention on Sunday because I spent 4 1/2 of those hours getting tattooed by the incredible Craig Gardyan. I couldn't be more happy with it. But I did buy even MORE prints.
I really need to go to more of these types of things. It's great to be able to speak to other artists, but it's also a good way to get inspired and maybe learn a few things.
