Day one Done!

It was really awesome to be there. Unlike Sakura-con and Pax, where Artists are either set aside from the con or randomly mixed it, artists are EVERYWHERE. Almost all the booths there are artists booths, with the artist actually hanging out there. I heard Jason Palmer was going to be there and I tracked down his booth. He was just hanging out, signing stuff so I bought this, which he signed and I got a hard cover for. Visited so many booths, including the swag booth just in time to grab a large Bolt poster before they put them away. They had UP posters on display, so I hope they might be giving them out tomorrow. I only bought the one print, but there were MANY THINGS I wanted.

At the end of the day, I got my Solo's Comic signed by Tim Sale.

I have to say, it was really motivating to be in that room with so many talented people. One guy that was really awesome was Stephen Silver, the character designer for Kim Possible. He had alot of books on display, all of which I want, but he was like, talking to people and other artists and is just really inspirational to listen to. He encourages others to just do their best without comparing themselves to other artists, regardless how good they may be. He's a pretty awesome guy.

Very excited about tomorrow.
