Just back from San Diego Comicon International. That's a mouthful, and so is the con. An impossibly huge and crazy show. It was great to be there, but it's also good to be home. The photo above is just as fuzzy as I was after a few days. It was taken in Artist's Alley, and I'm looking at the portfolio of good pal and fellow Chicagoan, Scott Beaderstadt.
Confined in convention hall maze the show lasts five very long days Plus nights blurred from drinking I'm dazed and I'm blinking When home I'll just lounge in a chaise
Back from the madness that is San Diego Comicon International. It's far too crazy, crowded, and exhausting, but still a great place to meet new friends in the comics biz and bump into old ones. Favorite fanboy moments: meeting and talking with the gracious and talented Ramona Fradon (below), the best Plastic Man artist after Plastic Man's creator, Jack Cole. And meeting Berni Wrightson and his lovely wife at the Creepy signing. One of my favorite artists and a primary stylistic influence turns out to be a swell guy. Be still, my beating heart.
HEY! This is where I'll let you know what I'm working on, what comic conventions I'm attending, as well as make note of other events and unrelated stuff that interests me.
Limerwrecks is my other blog. It features an original limerick of the day. Not the traditional "man from Nantucket" variety, but a potpourri of limericks about film, comics, and just about anything else that crosses my feeble mind. You can read them all here
