Boston Comicon 2011 - Sketches and Free Stuff!
Now we all know what the best part of Comicon is don't we? Besides meeting other illustrators and making new friends I mean. That's right, all the fantastic freebies (and almost-freebies)!
Wow... I'd link to everyone referenced above but that'd take hours and hours. Everyone is listed at the Comicon website. Head on over there and show all the indie artists your support.
Comicon's also a great place to get some killer bargains. I got everything you see above for ten dollars. Really. Yes, even the giant Bloom County Omnibus. I'm still reeling over that deal (of course, now I want them all).
I got a little caught up in the free giveaway atmosphere and decided, why not give away some free stuff of my own? So every kid who wanted one got a free thirty-second sketch. They pick the subject (this got interesting right quick). Here are a few of my favorites:
A couple of costumed characters stopped by too:
I'd like to thank everyone for a wonderful experience at the convention! See you next year!
EDIT: Somehow, this post got eaten during Blogger's down time last night, though thankfully I was able to get it back up. Weird. Eerie.
