Overall it was a decent show, the one thing I didn’t like was the curtains separating the rows, I think that cut down on traffic… however I am really glad that the ‘Adult Entertainment’ was no where near artists alley (it would have been a fiasco like last year). I’m also really glad that they paid attention to who wanted to be seated next to who this time.
We got kind of a late start, we wanted to leave the house around 430-5am, but didn’t get out till about 730-8. I had only about 40 mins of rest, and I crashed out in the car while my husband drove, I didn’t wake till we were in MI. It was all a whirlwind from the time we got the table assignment till the table was set up. was such a sweetie I’m so glad to have met him, and had the chance to hang out a little bit.
My regulars came by, it was great seeing them. Talked to a few fresh out of college kids looking for advice. Saw tons of great costumes. I really wanted to get pictures of Adam West and Burt Ward, but they were not allowing any photographs unless you paid. Art had done a painting of Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Catwoman and wanted to get them signed… for Adam West it was 40.00, Burt Ward was 30.00 and so on. So, at dinner on Friday Art was telling us that the guy that got autographs right after him, asked Adam West to do the Bat Dance, (which he had to pay $40.00 for), and he did it! I would have loved to have seen that!
Saturday we all went to Mongolian BBQ (minus Art, he was abducted before we got to his table to snag him). it was lots and lots of fun. It was great seeing everyone again, and talking to the Convention Attendees.
So, This week… I have to get my but in gear to finish my website, then next week, it’s work on my cafepress store, and start working on Faerie Art to sell on ebay again. I have at least two more large paintings in mind from sketches I did over the week. (which will be a secret till they’re done) I have tons of ideas, and need to get working! I’m hoping to have at least one of them finished in time for ICBC – June 10 in Iowa. One thing’s definate, Shows are so motivational and inspiring! =)
