Comicon...

NOTICE TO MADDY/MADELOUPE! Don't read, I want to tell you 'bout it on the phone! I bought you cool stuff! Now, get theee hence and wait for me to call, buddy. Sorry 'bout that.

OKAY. Comicon was absolutely amazing. You have no idea.

I've met so many people in the past few days I'm overwhelmed... I got to meet Aimee Major, Stephanie Lostimolo, and Paul Adam- I bought their new comic book, got it signed by Stephies, got giddy, drew her fanart, and listened as the most interesting squeal emerged from her mouth. I was rather flattered... Hee.

I saw Matt Groening, and me and my buddy, Lissa, got our portfolios reviewed by one of the main artists for the Simpsons comics. We heard good things, and evidently we're on the right track into animation and illustration. Woo!

Slave Labour Comics was there, one of my favourite publishers, so we lingered there for a while with Lissa's friend JoJo and her boyfriend. I met, and got my sketchbook sighned by, Roman Dirge, the Author of the gothic comic concerning the cute little dead girl, Lenore. I bought a Carl Cthuhlu doll, and a squeaky Spooky doll from the comic 'I Feel Sick.' We stood and stared at Jhoen Vasquez for quite awhile... He look tired, but he was absolutely adorable. And so terribly, terribly thin. He's the author and artist of the amazing comic series Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. Wow. He was fun to watch as insanely devoted fans came up to him squealing like schoolgirls and looking like clones. Hee.

We also met Michael Gagne, author and animator, who wrote the wonderful book Insanely Twisted Rabbits- worth the buy, I promise- and Brian Frond, the amazingly well-known faerie illustrator and stout little british man. Yay, he was so niiice.

Okay, now drumroll. For the best of the best. I met...

CHRIS SANDERS. The one and only mind behind the madness for the movie Lilo & Stitch . Chris created stitch, and practically designed the style and everything else about the movie. He was insanely nice, looked like a surfer dude, and chatted with us all outside for qute some time. I'll scan the drawing he did in my sketchbook later...

Wow. What a great trip.
