New York Comic-Con
This year was probably the best time I had in all the three years I've been there. The weather was beautiful and the show was a big success. Got to meet and hang out with so many people cool people. The show was huge and unbelievably crowded this year so I barely had any time to do anything else than hang out on my table and draw. Nevertheless it was great seeing a lot of new and old friends. Of course I didn't get the chance to see everyone I'd like to see but you can't win them all I suppose.
Some of the highlights of the whole trip were getting to see the DC offices and meeting my editors, hanging out with Joe, Ivan and the whole Brazilian gang, hanging out with Guile and the French gang, meeting some awesome podcasters, enjoying the weather in the city and getting to eat and drink so many cool things.
The biggest thing that made the whole thing worth everything was all of you who came by to say hi. It really means a lot that you appreciate my work. Thank you!
Birmingham International Comics Show
First time I've been to the UK and what a blast I had. The convention was amazing thanks to all the people who came by to see me. I truly appreciate your appreciation. I've also made my first ever panel appearance at an international convention. Had the privilege to meet and hand out with amazing people like Dave Gibbons, Paul Cornell and many others. I was a bit tired and jet lagged after the New York trip but I hope I made everyone happy with some free sketches.
Had a wonderful time eating and drinking with many fellow creators and friends. I'm happy I've stayed as long as I did otherwise I'd be bloated eating the amazing food and drinking every night!
Seriously though, I have to say what made the whole thing better than I could ever imagine was James, Andy, Shane and Lucy! Thank you so much for everything guys.
Met many DA members in both shows which was fantastic too!
So this wraps up my convention year and it seems like it's already time to start planning for next year. Hopefully I'll make it to more conventions this coming year. Looking forward to meeting you all again soon.
