In about 72 hours I'll be in a hotel in Atlanta, anxiously awaiting the start of Dragon*Con. It's my first visit to this particular event and it will mark the first out of state convention I've been to in 7 years; the last being Chicago's Wizard World in 2005 where I unsuccessfully tried to sell my comic.
This time around I won't have any artwork to sell and sadly I won't be dressing up. However, my lovely lady WILL be dressing up as Rei Ayanami from Neon Genesis Evangeleon. She's very excited as this is her first all handmade costume. We'll also be traveling with a friend who was wonderful enough to book our hotel WAY ahead of time.
To that end, I wanted to say that if you ARE planning on going to Dragon*Con, and you spot me there, I"ll have a QR code pasted on my person or pack somewhere. If you scan it and email me or text me and place an order, I'll do an additional character sketch card for free. "Ah, but how will you know I was there. Can't I just place an order?" Nay!! You'll have to include a very special piece of information to get it, something you'll only know if we meet in person: The shirt I'm wearing.
I'm very proud of my shirts. They are of a style that is hard to find. So if you see me, and you like the idea of getting a robot portrait AND a sketch card for virtually nothing, all you have to do is tell me what I wore when we met.
Even if you come by this page after scanning the QR and you don't remember or didn't see the shirt, let's face it, for what I'm charging, it wouldn't make any sense for you NOT to order something. Right?
So I hope to see some of you fans out there. Feel free to email if you're going and mayhaps we can share a beverage.
