So that was pretty fun, the 2009 Montreal Comic Con
was a small fan con, with a proportionately large artist alley [to dealers room]. really good crowd Saturday, Sunday i got there late but the crowd was tepid in comparison too. About a quarter maybe to Saturday's turnout. All in all though good time. Sold lots day one, just enough day two to make showing up worth it. Made a video of the mania on day one....
Also someone at the con told me they knew it was my birthday this past week becuse they saw this
, thanks Tom!
I spent some time watching Darwin work on commissions, he's got a really bloody-minded efficient system for rendering.
I've done that general kind of thing before but 10 years ago set off to amuse myself doing more personal work, it's both enticing and daunting t think about getting back into such a regime. But if i want to get things done faster....
been thinking about what to do for $ now that the illustration market is so dead, working some kind of WFH gig is on the table, talking with some of my friends on the inside it seems tempting and really - after part time dish washing for the last 6 months i'm about ready to do anything just to get back to being paid to draw full time.
is still going to happen, but i need something stable to back up things. Always did want to draw Rocket Raccoon, maybe that idea for a one off i joked about is worth following up and pitching...
