(One of the small pockets of clear space at the con.)
That I knew a number of other people going to the con certainly made it more enjoyable. I got to chat with friends, we oogled comics (and all manner of comics related stuff), we marveled at the sardine-can atmosphere. That I knew the person responsible for the con (which I only discovered after having been told by coldecho)was a little weird. But it did explain why the place was a clusterfuck as far as logistics. And i'm not saying this because I like to say mean things. There were many people at the con- way more than the place looked capable of holding. Having the check-in, ticket sales, and con entrance at the center of a t-intersection also does not help. Reducing foot traffic space by putting large booths for the local radio station, and a major local comic shop (along with four other booths in the area with the heaviest foot traffic) only makes things worse.
Anyways, enough crabbiness. Photos:
Sketch/autograph thing in progress.
Yes, I know how silly I look, and I don't care.
Totally forgot to bring a dvd for him to sign, but i'm kind of glad it worked out that way. I plan on framing the sketch/autograph, and possibly including the two photos with it when I find a nice frame- I can always cut the matting myself. May post it when it's done, if I remember.
