This is by far one of my favorite con to be an exhibitor at. The crowd is extremely excited, polite and friendly. Friday was busy from start to finish. Saturday was extremely busy and there was a steady flow of attendees throughout the day. There was so many people in the convention center on Saturday the fire marshal had attendees wait in line until there was adequate room for them to go into the main exhibitor hall. They also extended Saturdays show an hour later to accommodate all the attendees waiting to get in the main exhibitor hall. On Sunday it was busier than any Sunday I have seen. Most of the time Sundays aren’t busy until about 12:30pm. Not this one, it was busy from the time the doors opened to closing.
I was able to get some books signed by legendary artist Mr. Joe Jusko. The first time I saw Savage Sword of Conan issue 121 that Mr. Jusko painted caused me to pick up a brush and give painting a try. Mr. Jusko is not only an extraordinary artist, he is a very friendly, polite and respectful person.
This year brought costumes of all ages to our table. So many talented people! You will see what I mean in the picture gallery. I was finally able to donate some sketches to the Heroes Initiative, what great cause to support!
Saturday evening brought some time to hang out with some awesome friends John Narcomey Jr. and Melissa Tolbert, whom I haven’t seen in over a year. Greeeat time catching up and planed some other shows to share a table.
