Con Aftermath...


Wow...
It's been 5 days since the SDCC and I'm still exhausted... What a fantastic time though! It was sooo inspiring to be around so many awesome artists and to see so much amazing work! I got the chance to meet some big inspirations (John Navarez, greatest guy ever) and a bunch of old friends too (Steve Lambe, Miah Alcorn, Robin Mitchell). My creative batteries are completely recharged!
It was the first time I was out there at a table, and despite not recieving one out of the two tables we reserved, everything couldnt have gone better! I'm so happy that i decided to get my book together, "Amalgamation", to sell out there. I couldnt be any happier at how well recieved it was... I really had no expectations coming in and was thrilled to unload nearly 100 of them! Thanks sooo much to anyone and everyone that picked one up!
The single most important step in all this was, first and foremost, the creation of this blog. And I truly owe it all to Steve Lambe! Steve, youre an awesome guy and you really pushed me to show my stuff more, even though I'd constantly shoot ya down...(and still will) I owe ya a bunch! Thanks for turning me on to it!
So, over the next few days I will try to set up a Pay Pal button and attempt to get rid of the rest of these at $10 a pop to whoever is interested... If you are interested just shoot me an e-mail and I will keep tabs, or wait for the "store" to pop up... copies are limited however.
Time to get to work for next year! *** I need sleep***
