My Little SDCC Vacation

Post by just1nj » Fri Jul 31, 2009 2:24 am

This was my first year as an exhibitor ( I was with Strangekiss, for those wondering ), so I had no idea if I would be able to cruise around during the con. Somehow I managed to get a lot done during preview night and thurs-fri-sat. I networked with artists, met artists I've been longing to meet, met up some friends, bought some stuff I didn't expect to buy, blah blah, etc.

Meeting some of you board members was super cool. Off the top of my head I met manga_spawn, superben, hypekickz, jceballo, deanobot, iliksprite, spankystokes, kngwiz, and a crap load more of ya'll.

hypekickz - next time get more than one day pass, lol

spankystokes - eating out at Sushi Itto's w/the strangekiss crew

Everyone seemed to be in a good spirited mood, unless you got butt-hurt about missing a release @ KR.

Here is some other random shots from various days:

Luke Chueh - talked to him for while about random stuff (saturday)

Thomas Han - super nice guy, real talk. ;) (friday)

Hang loose w/Woebots (thursday)

Do you love orange soda?!?! Kel does. (thursday)

Itokin Park (preview night)

Met other artists too, but I don't want to flood this post with pictures loading.

Peep the flickr for more - FLICKR

So, I hope ya'll had just as much fun as I did. Just wanted to post this before this section gets locked, lol!

Thanks for all good times at the con, ya'll. Don't think I had one bad moment, besides getting stopped at the airport security thingy before heading to SD.

See ya next year

great pics!

it seems no matter how you try there is never a good shot to properly show how long the line is

"total disgrace, alot of artists have been screwed by mindstyle, this is a claim that can be backed up BIGTIME!. In fact we could write a book on it! I don't have a grudge cause my situation has been done n gone, but i know of many other HUNGRY people wanting to produce work who will never see what they so rightly deserve, payment and samples, and whatever mindstyle decides to do with your will have no say or control"

I think some of them were pure coincidence.. lol. I threw up the hang loose sign because AW is from Hawaii. Uhm.. ya, and I know Itokin Park usually throws up a thumbs up, so I had to do that for fun.


Ben tagged me on facebook with those pics. They came out pretty sweet. Haha, look at those handmade Uglydolls I am holding.
