Comic Con: Thursday continued

The artists seem to be doing well. I see lots of “sold” signs on paintings. The crowds have been steady...but promise to be better (or worse, depending on your point of view) on Friday and Saturday.

It was a pleasure to meet David Apatoff. David runs one of my favorite illustration blogs, Illustration Art. He seems to be as gracious as his site implies he would be. We talked a bit with Charles Vess and Greg Manchess. Charles seems very excited about the upcoming film version of Stardust. He seems pleased that the film makers have remained true to the spirit of the book. Greg will be doing a demo on Friday -- more on that latter.

I ran into Theo Black, Holly Black, and Tony Diterlizzi, of Spiderwick fame.

ConceptArt freinds: Arkady “AmishCommy” Roytman and Tiffany “poise” Prothero.

What convetionis complete without Elvis Trooper.

Thank you, Irene but I feel compelled to inform your readers that you look nothing like your portrait at the top of your blog.

Ha! Well, I’m afraid that that is the beginning and end of my own artistic talent.

In high school I could draw...then I made the mistake of going to art school. ;-)

sometimes you can go to earn the Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the potbs gold to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the potbs Doubloon for your own. you can earn the potbs money alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can go to buy potbs Doubloon as the rewards in this game.
