Comic Con 09 - Artists

I didn't take a lot of pictures of the artists I met but here are a few pitures. I really liked these oil paintings by Lark Pien, the colors were so amazing. I would have bought one but they were 75 dollars for one as they were originals.
I thought these little sculptures by Leslie Levings were awesome, they are called Beastlies

This is Hope Larson one my favorite cartoonists. I went to a panel that spotlighted her. There weren't a lot of people that came and so I sat in the front row and sat down next to Scott Mcloud (who made the book "Understanding comics) and her husband Bryan Lee O'Malley who is the creator of Scott Pilgram Of course I didn't reconize them and didn't realize who they were until Hope started talking about them and pointing to them.

Comic Con 09 - Costumes

I got back from Comic Con last night which was really cool. Usually when I go I get all excited about the panels with all the famous celebrities, the ones that take waiting in line 2 hours to get into. This year I had more of a focus and decided to go to the panels that would be more helpful in helping me get my career going and inspire me the most.
Anyway I didn't take a lot of pictures of costumed people or celebrities but here are some pictures I did take.

This Wolverine guy liked crashing pictures. He would see people taking pictures and run over and pose with the other people whether they liked it or not. I only had it happen twice to me but over the time period I was at comic con I saw this guy do it so much. He was the biggest attention whore I have ever seen at Comic Con and I find it pretty funny. If you look at the last one it looks like he is checking out the Cobra girls butt.

I thought the stringed instrument thing was pretty original.

The Sign is actually Gentle Giants I just found it funny to cut of the giants part.

Jesus drawings

When I go to church I bring my moleskin and I draw in it. I see pictures of Jesus hanging all over the place and since I got tired of people moving when I tried drawing them I started drawing Jesus. I am seeing how many different variations I can make. I scanned them and put them together into these four pages.
