I really love your tape but I hate your inventions
One of the coolest guys I met down in San Diego was Jason Sigala. Four out of five doctors agree that Jason is the leading cause of Niego. On Wednesday, Niego hit its 100th hillarity-filled strip. Sounds like an epidemic!
I also finally got to meet the infamous Ryan Estrada. He wasn't exactly how I had pictured him, but that's probably because I pictured him as the spitting image of his cartoon avatar: rubbery, spastic and constantly over-emoting. By comparisson, the real man is actually pretty laid back! But really, who wouldn't be?
The plain nicest artist I met at the convention was Girly's Josh Lesnick. I think the man excretes earnestness from his pores. I'd heard he was shy, but either that was just a rumour, or my calculated brand of abrasive friendliness frightened him out of it. Another one of the many cartoonists I wish I'd had more time to talk to. I guess there is always next year!
