Best Comic-Con Ever!
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.
