I am back, back from Anime Evolution. It was an extremely chaotic but thoroughly entertaining time.
Most of the time, I was sharing some artist alley table space with Greg Dean and David Stanworth. I also got to meet JJ of Filibuster Cartoons and Angela of Spike Comix, who were not exhibiting at the con but came to visit. Upstanding cartoonist types, the lot of them.
Greg did a panel about vector art with Illustrator, and David did a panel about raster art with Photoshop, so I tried to fill the media void by focusing my panel around hand-drawn art with prehistoric pens and paper. Tried is the opperative word. I am confident I provided attendees with zero percent useful information and 100 percent disturbing-drawings-on-the-overhead-projector. People seemed to have a good time, but it probably wasn't very educational! Next time I will try to combine fun and education, which as we all know is a winning formula that never ends in failure.
Most of the other guests were voice actors, which made the guest functions a pretty surreal experience. They were thoroughly nice guys. But sometimes, having dinner with Michael Dobson, Vic Mignogna, and Trevor Devall felt like having dinner at a table of 50 people. They certainly drank as much as 50 people! (Joke! OR IS IT?)
All in all, it was a great time that left me completely exhausted. It is good to be home!
