I comic-conned hard today, you guys.
My mission today was to collect business cards and meet artists for future interviews, take a lot of pictures, and meet more wonderful people. Mission: accomplished.
The day began with the purchase of a Ren & Stimpy/Batman crossover print from Justin Orr and meeting one of my favorite artists, Scott Campbell. Following that, I attended Wil Wheaton’s 90 Minutes of Awesome performance, which meant getting to listen to Wil Freaking Wheaton tell stories and make Star Trek jokes. I filled my camera with videos and pictures, and recorded audio of the entire thing. That should all make its way to the internet soon.
After more wandering and coffee drinking (so much coffee was consumed today, you guys), there was an amazing impromptu concert by some of the best nerdy musicians. It was certainly the highlight of the day. This was the lineup (warning– you’ll probably be pretty damn jealous): The Doubleclicks, Vixy & Tony, Molly Lewis, and Marian Call. Holy musical talent, Batman! Check out these pictures, and then go make a working TARDIS and go back in time and space to watch this.
The rest of the day was spent scouring Artist’s Alley and collecting contact information for future interviews. There was so much talent in every direction. It was pretty overwhelming.
