After we got to our station and got set up a bit, we immediately took a gander around the showroom floor and ran into one of our favorite artists, Skottie Young.
Well certainly the latecomer wanted to hang out at the table and represent AO. I couldn't deprive him of said opportunity could I? COULD I? Of course not, I mean what do I look like? Indeed I had one more stop I needed to make to make my Day One at Motor City Comicon complete.
This one. If you have not seen it...you should.
Honestly that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. But no matter, do your own research if you wanna. I have a friend at work who knows Mister Suriano and highly recommended that I visit his booth. After seeing his artbook, it became it was something that I knew that I needed to do, even if it was just to cop one of the books for myself.
Needless to say Andy and Tyler were beyond inspiring, welcoming, encouraging and supportive of my first go as an artist at Comic Con. I can't enunciate how much I appreciated that time we got to have a real creative exchange. We bought each others books, and chatted about all kinds of stuff.
They even prompted a pic with my artbook, and I excitedly took a pic with their SUPER HEYUGE Comic: "Liberty Justice" a sexy colorful futuristic blaxploitation sci-fi comic. Ultra cool.
By the by, if I hadn't clearly said so yet, Tyler Shainline is the writer of Liberty Justice and is a really awesome guy. As a matter of fact he pointed me in the direction of (and in no ways encouraged me to partake in) some guffaw inducing NES Cartridge "flasks".
With a simply marvelous day one winding down, I took notice at some things I don't really know why I missed before...like this Ninja Turtle made completely out of balloons.
And let's not mince words, isn't that what Comic Con is all about?
What more could I ask for?
