Another Heroes Con has come and gone, and while I did hear some disheartening things from some, I am glad to say it was still a great show for us! We managed to make the trek through Tropical Storm Andrea thanks in large part to our pal Vanessa Banky Farano. I will say, I was a nervous wreck the whole way up there because driving long distances on unfamiliar roads at high speeds in the rain is a huge phobia of mine.
I did quite a few commissions at the show. Most of them are posted on my facebook page, so be sure to add me! Here are a few highlights. I got to draw this Gwen Stacy vs the Alien Symbiote on a scan of an Amazing Spider man cover. I thought it was a pretty cheap alternative to what getting ahold of one of these would have cost.
As most people know, I'm not much of a Star Trek fan. I do like the new movies, but that's about it. I was of course a bit hesitant to do this commission of Spock, but I was really happy with it. I know Tribbles don't have eyes, but come on. How cute is he?
There were a group of guys there called Frank's Comics. They were creating custom buttons for anyone who brought their artwork to them. So someone commissioned me to draw a few Sugar Boogarz for them. This Silver Surfer was my favorite. What a great idea. As a result of my meeting them, rest assured, you'll be seeing buttons at my table soon!
On the way back from Charlotte, Banky decided she wanted to do lunch in her old stomping grounds of Savannah, Georgia. Far be it from me to complain since I'd never been before. The city was gorgeous. I loved all the greenery and the old architecture.
We grabbed a bite to eat at a cool little pizza joint called the Mellow Mushroom. It was super noms.
We ended our excursion on River Street at the Savannah Candy store. I felt like I was Charlie in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Leave it to me to find what seems to be quickly be becoming my calling card and signature. The Candy Corn.
