Back from Comic-Con '08!

And boy are my legs tired. No, seriously. I'm so glad I have a sit down day-job or I think my legs might turn to jelly and I'll be forced to literally drag myself around. (A funny prospect but I'd rather not get my clothes all dirty.) Unfortunately on top of that a cold virus snuck up on me and I'm in the beginning stages of a bad first half of the week. But I won't that get me down!

Being it was my first con, it was INFORMATION OVERLOAD!

Just imagine being in a traffic accident involving a truck load of paint, a truck load of neon signs, a magazine truck and an animal control van. Now picture that mess combined with a few live wires falling amongst them and a crowd of onl00kers gawking and blocking any escape from the chaos. That's COMIC-Con! :D

Seriously though, it was a lot of fun and I spent this morning sorting through my schwag, booty, loot, freebies, whatever you want to call it -- tossing the stuff I don't want and hoarding the rest. Really makes you wonder if Dragons did this kind of thing in the Middle Ages.

I saw a lot of good panels too, ranging from Webcomics to Ghosts to Video Games to Movies and even some 90s TV Cartoon Stars. I had to leave early due to my rides pooping out and wanting to go home early, but I think I was basically done. I got some signed comic books and posters so I'm a happy little gecko.

Most importantly, I got a fun little vacation, got some sneak peeks at upcoming movies and games and I re-discovered my reasoning for coming out here in the first place: to share my stories and connect with other artists. I have a renewed vigor for my writing and drawing and I know something awesome will be coming out of it.

Will I do it again next year? Geez, let me recover from this one first why don't you?
