OK, I'm still alive, Con didn't kill me. It was actually much less intense for me this year. Before I say anything else, I want to say hi and thanks to everyone who came by the Bloodfire booth, and huge thanks to everyone who got caricatures done or bought any of my stuff! More about that in a bit.
HBO now has a "Buzz" piece about our game, a short video which you can see here! How awesome is that? I'm not in it, but my boss Damon is, and there's a lot of my artwork shown, which gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling. :)
Back to the Con caricatures; I had my digital camera with me and it dawned on me that I oughta take some pix of my vict- uh, I mean customers, with their caricatures! I won't show the customers (I would need permission), but here's shots of their artwork:
This girl looked exactly like this! Really! She was easy to draw.
Patricia here, she is EEEVIL!
These girls were a bit too "normal" so I gothed 'em out a bit.
This one's husband wanted a sexy goth faerie look.
Turning people in t-shirts and jeans into stylish goths is fun!
This guy's girlfriend will now see him as a Mighty Warrior!
This girl said that this caricature was her favorite thing that she bought at Con. :)
NINJA-MIKE! (a different Mike)
Another sexy faerie for hubby:
And two perfectly normal people who allowed me to spice things up a bit! :)
There were more, but not all the photos came out well enough to see the caricatures. Oh well. Thanks again everyone! :)
I didn't buy much at Con, just some art books and sketchbooks. I didn't get much swag either, but I must say my favorite acquisition was an awesome hand-knit Pixel Skull iPod Cover that the mighty R. Stevens gave me. He is a hell of a guy and one of the web's best cartoonists, and one of the cattle prods behind me doing Just A Bit Off.... If you don't read him daily, you're wrong, and if you don't get it, you are taking life too seriously and you should see a doctor for relaxation therapy. Thanks, R.!
OK gotta get back to work. I have to work tomorrow too. Sigh...
