It’s your weekly Photo Gallery! Come on in, take a look at what people have been up to over the past week and share some of your own photos.
They don’t need to be taken with a fancy camera or works of art. Share any SFW photos you’ve taken with even the poorest of potatoes. Of course we love to see that arty stuff too.
Went to the New York Comic Con.
Don’t think I’ll be attending this one again. The last NYCC I went to was in 2007 and back then it was getting overcrowded and forgetting about comics. Got a tad bit busier since then.
Going to the city again was kind of fun though. Wish I’d had more time but I was with a group and didn’t want to slow them down. Still snagged a few pictures to and fro.
I don’t really get the cosplay trend, but this was freaking awesome. Little kid in stormtrooper costume was controlling it with strings.
SO MANY PEOPLE!!! I might be too old and grumpy to enjoy this. Definitely too grumpy.
Back when I was a frequent convention-goer, the main draw for me was the cheap comics and meeting the creators. I guess that’s not so important anymore. To find the artists and writers you need to go to a lower floor with pretty much no fanfare for the talent hidden in the catacombs.
It wasn’t very crowded down there either.... Which was nice for my sanity, but somewhat disappointing that people seem less interested in comics and the artists behind them than they are with whatever that nonsense upstairs was.
Met some cool people down there! A favorite title in recent years has been the Mouse Guard series by David Peterson. I have all the books and got a sketch from him years ago already, but wanted to see if there was anything new I didn’t know about. There was!
Picked that up for my nephew.
(Found out later that he did a version of The Wind in the Willows. That is on it’s way already.)
One artist I really wanted to meet was Greg Tocchini. The artist behind the beautiful illustrations in the LOW series from Rick Remender. Dude was super nice and kind enough to do a sketch in my sketchbook..
Can’t recommend that book enough.
Snapped a few shots on the way back to Penn Station.
For all my complaining, it was still great fun seeing friends I hadn’t seen in a few years. Getting that drawing really made my friggin’ day tho. I’m still stoked about it. :)
