I'm gonna add to the mountain of "I'm so tired from the Con!" blog posts out there only to say that it's true. That thing goes by way too fast and takes so much out of you in exchange for INSPIRATION. My experience this year was fantastic, I met a buncha new artists and hugged my old friends, plus I got to experience things on the other side of the tables via the Girls Drawin' Girls booth. We did very well from what I can gather (THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME BY TO SAY HI AND/OR BOUGHT MY BOOKS!!!) and I will do my best to get back to everyone who sent kind emails, shared their cards/books with me and whatnot. Just be patient, I'm still in LA for a few more days to visit friends and test the employment waters here ;)
I will post pics of my sketchbook bounty when I return to San Fran. It is rather large this year - one of the perks of having a book of your own to trade around at the Con ;) Otherwise, highlights of this trip included drawing in other people's sketchbooks (lotsa boobs and PugFish for all!), being pounded by the surf on Venice Beach, regaining my "driving in LA" confidence (wasn't so much fun the last time I tried that 10 years ago) and nearly being clipped by a hot-dogging crop duster on the 5.
I'll check in again soon!
