Well...not in any way offending the convention... Wizard World Chicago turned out to be a kick in the ass for me ego-wise. I could not even GIVE my prints away for free! That goes the same for my Shrek comics. It was truly an eye opener and a lesson learned. What to do, what not to do as well as what I lacked. This was my first time ever having a table so it was pretty interesting, now I can say I finally tried it out.
BUT, the weekend was still a HUGE BLAST due to the support of my bestest of buddies. My brother-in-law Jim sat with me and manned the table when I was gone. My buddies Joel
, and Jason all showed up for support. Joel surprised me with a custom Mighty Mugg of ME! (I will post pics soon) It proudly sat at my table. Other good friends of mine I got to chat with were Matt Bellisle
, Dan Mead
, Kiley Beecher
. Check out their fantastic work here on Deviant.
What saved my butt at the con was that I did manage to do a few commisions for some super awesome people including
. I will be posting some of those soon as well.
One of the BEST parts of the con was meeting up with longtime DA friends and idols like Jay Fosgitt
, Mike Henry
, Enrique Rivera
, Nick Volkert
and Jon Kulczar
. Your artwork always inspires and it was so cool to meet you guys in person and thanks for the inspiration and encouraging words! You guys are the greatest.
Thanks again for an incredible weekend!
