After unpacking at home I realized the full extent of the damage to my both my wallet, and to the forested regions that gave their all to become great art books. There are a few other items that didn't make the photo, but this is the bulk of it. Plenty of top stuff that should keep me inspired for quite some time.

I am sitting in my hotel room packing up all my fantastic purchases from the con, and thinking about the amazing individuals I met. Many I had known for a while courtesy of the internet, but few I had met in the flesh. I also had the good luck to be exposed to tons of new people and their incredible work. Everyday at the con was another day that made me feel creatively rejuvenated, while reminding me that I need to be drawing a helluva lot more. The saturday night drawing jam confirmed that notion, but I also realized that every other artist in the room felt the same way no matter how jaw-dropping his/her work was. There was so much talent in that room it genuinely made me dizzy, and I was ecstatic to walk away with a handful of brilliant sketches, all suitable for framing!
Thank you to everyone that made this year so special. Your work, heart, and love for your craft inspires me.

and many, many more!

It's late, and I am finishing a ton of work, but I am very excited to depart tomorrow for the sunny climes of San Diego. I can't wait meet a batch of new, talented individuals who will help me empty my pocketbook with the artistic goodness they bring to the show. See you soon!

Here is my brand new business card that I am having printed for the San Diego Comic-Con and all points beyond. If you run into me at the Con I will be happy to give you one for your very own. Right now, TonyCanepa.com will redirect you back here, but I will be working hard to get a full-fledged portfolio up very soon.
