And there's the payoff! My signature finally ran away, although not very quickly apparently! Pretty sure Pterodactyls were fast flyers! Kinda sad this only lasted a week. I had so much fun drawing all these dinosaurs! Oh well, there's always next time!
And now, it's time for the annual CRAZY COMIC CON KICKOFF!!! For the next few weeks, we'll be reliving some of the fun from past Comic Con's, featuring never before seen pics! How do I know they've never been seen? Because I spent HOURS combing through my archives making sure I hadn't posted these already! So lets set the Wayback Machine to the year 2011, and jump into the action! Enjoy...
The rarest of rare sights: The San Diego Convention Center prior to loading in the booths. This is Hall E looking towards Halls F and G. The vaunted Hall H lies beyond that wall!
Downtown's always such a blast during con. With so many freebies and cheap events happening, you really can make a week out of that without a SDCC badge. You also get to see plenty of promos for doomed movies too!
My nephew, Dante, as Jack Skellington. Hard to believe he's almost as big as me now! He was only 8 when we went that summer. And every girl there wanted a pic with him!
This one's for Chandra! Every year, the parking lot across from Petco Park has a free mini con set up that's just as good as the real deal across the bridge! In 2011, Sharknado sponsored a mechanical bull/shark for people to ride on. I took this pic just as this girl got thrown off!
CAPTAIN MARVEL!!! I mean, SHAZAM!!!
Apparently Dora was exploring a way to sneak into Hall H!
You meet a lot of interesting people in Downtown San Diego during Comic Con!
I don't think acupuncture really works for me.
Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? Apparently she was in San Diego the whole time. Nobody ever checks here first!
I get the feeling we'll be seeing lots of Jareths at lots of comic cons this year.
See you in your dreams!
Hipnotoad sees all!
Wolverfett! Or is it Bobarine?
Quick Robin! To the Bat-Mrs. Fields Stand!
And that wraps up our first week of the Comic Con Kickoff! I remember 2011 well for sad reasons I'm afraid. I'd hoped it would be a brief escape from a very turbulent time in my life, but sadly, medical conditions I'd had at the time just made everything miserable for me. Thankfully, I was able to get proper treatment not long after. All I'll say is, if you start having dizzy spells for no reason, see a doctor!
And that's all she wrote for June 2016! We'll be back next time with more art and a look back at Comic Con 2012! Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
