Get 'em up folks ... and get your GEEK on... for San Francisco's own...
25th Anniversary of WONDERCON!
DAY 3 of Wondercon was a beautiful and sunny one in the City by the Bay. It was great to see all the costumes and personalities as usual. I like to attend the third day of the Con as it is usually a bit less crowded and the venders are anxious to unload inventory rather than take it back home.
BILL SIENKIEWICZ is a legend in the business of graphic novels, comics, movie posters and many other areas of illustration.... and a personal favorite of mine. It was great to meet him after all these years. He autographed my copy of Voodoo Child... YES!
DAVID MACK was in the house and it was great to catch-up with him and hear about his latest projects with Bendis and Maleev for Icon Comics. David's a great artist and nice guy. I've been collecting his work since the nineties when he first started.
BARRON STOREY (my former professor and mentor) and his wife Petra are old friends by now and were both in attendance connecting with old friends and some of the new rising talent. It was good to catch up with them again.
AND... NO CON is complete without a visit to STUART NG BOOKS! After prying myself away from their wonderful imported artbooks and graphic novels I came away with a few small treausres without going broke.... YAY! (not easy to do)
All in all it was a great afternoon and I am already looking forward to next year...
If you have never been to Wondercon, put it on your calendars now, usually around April 1st.
Here is where you can find more work from these artist friends of mine.
