Return to sender

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!

Claire and I are still in Vancouver at the Anime Evolution convention. The folks hosting the event are being super nice to us, and we're getting to meet a surprisingly large number of fans considering the size and topic of the event.

Tune in on Wednesday for the "full" report!

Visit me at Anime Evolution 2006

When: This weekend (Saturday through Monday)

Where: Vancouver BC (Click here for street address and directions)

I will be hanging out at a table in artists alley, doing free sketches and selling copies of the new book (as well as a handful of t-shirts of random sizes and designs.) I will also be doing a couple of "events":

Sunday, 5:00 PM - "Sam and Fuzzy Q and A"

This is my panel. Please come to my panel. Don't leave me all alone. I promise I will answer your questions with a smile, even if you ask "Where do you get your ideas," otherwise known as the most dreaded question among writers and artists everywhere.

Saturday, 3:30 PM - "Autograph Session"

Basically, this is the same thing I'm going to be doing at my table, only I'll be doing it somewhere else, and Greg Dean and David Stanworth will be doing it with me. They've also scheduled a second session for Sunday at 12:30, but Greg won't be at that one.

That is the deal! Swing by and say hello.
