[listening to "love is an open door" by kristen bell & santino fontana]
it's been almost 2 weeks since Awesome Con and i have yet to post pics. i have very good reasons though. hubby was in the hospital and i had to take care of him. he's doing better now so i'm able to do more stuff like draw and post pics!
well, if u haven't heard already, Awesome Con really lived up to its name. its amazing how much it grew in only its 2nd year. the team that puts the con together are some of the best guys in the biz but i know the show grew so much thanx to all the attendees and everyone that participated in its kickstarter from last year. we got to see some familiar faces, some new ones. me and IDSTUDIOS crew were in the exhibitor area for the first time with such a huge space and it really felt kinda nice. we each had a table, which is a first for us. i was kinda afraid before that if i had my own table and the guys had theirs, that my table would be all sad and lonely and noone would wanna come and talk to me. but it actually turned out pretty fantastical! i am my worst critic, i know.
i didn't get to do very many commissions over the weekend, which is kinda good because whenever one of us left the booth for a signing or a panel, it was hard to man their table too. i'm grateful for the few that i did do, but happy it was only handful.
huge high-fives to everyone that stopped by our booth at the show! its our best show to date, especially since its in our hometown! and it was really neato to see folks walking around with the badges that we designed. couple of folks came up to have me sign it, that was super neat. and of course, after the show we were able to have a little bit of shenanigans. even got to see Captain America 2 for the first time and by golly, that was one fantastic film. pleasantly surprised! the theater experience though was wild and crazy. i mean it was DC on a saturday night so i kinda expected it. but wow. dude in front had to be asked to put his phone away, then his friend was passing out (pretty sure dud was drunk as balls) so they had to be escorted out, then some ridiculous chick just got hype with some dude cuz he kept asking her to put her phone away. i mean HYPE! she got all in his mix. lucky it wasn't me, she'd have been smacked. then we both woulda been escorted out. so, like i said, shenanigans. =)
