    So I was chatting a bit with Daniel tonight and was curious how many people might be interested in an organized CA get together down at Comic Con. If so, I'd like to do something a little different than what we're used to and introduce some of the things that we do up here in Seattle i.e. hour long thunderdomes where the participants kicks in $1/piece to buy the winners beverages/snack. These thunderdomes wouldn't be a "Who's the best artist?" challenge. This would leave the lesser skilled individuals at a severe disadvantage and would discourage maximum participation. With that being said, I'd propose something along the lines of a few different categories of winners. Best Pro, best amateur, most creative interpretation of the subject, etc. Is that something that might interest the other attendees?

    In addition, I know a fair number of artists attending that aren't members of CA and I think it'd be cool to start an annual gathering at the various cons where we pool our collective artist friends for a night of hanging out, drawing, and networking. Would that be something that would interest anyone else?

    -Mike

    I think that sounds like a good time. I just received my pro reg and I have decided to go to the con. Last time I was at the SDCCI, I was hanging out with a group of artists and we would call out a ridiculous subject and have 15 minutes to sketch it, then we would democratically pick the best one while keeping score. While everyone else was getting drunk, we were having all the fun in the world drawing. Those are some of my favorite con memories, so, I would like to meet some of my CA friends and get down to making art together.

    I'm not going to be there either... I missed registration and with Miyazaki going on, I'm going to that instead.

    That's cool as hell. I'd buy one but it would only depress me.

    While I'm not going to be there, some of my "Night Walker" custom toys will be at the Mimoco/Mimobot booth! Evan, the CEO at Mimobot invited me to be in the show there, so if you go, check out the Mimoco booth to see my custom toys, and maybe even win one! *I'm sending extras to be in the raffle they're having*

    I ran into several people there last year I didn't even know would be there, and it was a huge pleasure to finally meet them. (Yeah, I fangirled. ) I wonder how many artists from CA will be attending, I don't want to miss anybody this time from lack of focus!

    It'd be cool if any meetups are going down, after EH closes.

    So is anyone else going to be going to the events? i.e. the Avatar presentation by James Cameron.

    events? pshhh

    I've caught a couple in the past but usually I don't even have a clue so far as programming goes. I'm a fan of the "wander the floor aimlessly until you randomly find yourself infront of something interesting" method. It's what I believe in

    Wow. Can't believe we only have a few short weeks to go.

    I just ordered my books and handouts. I'll be passing out 2 versions. One is my portfolio book and the other is called Artgasm, a shared portfolio with fellow artist Chris Gugliotti

    Here are the covers and a few pages: (These pages are just design samples and have been cleaned/fixed up for print)

    If you bump into me at the show, I'll be happy to hand one out to ya.

    Me! I love the EH, and I have literally spent days in there before, but I also attend a bunch of panels and previews and stuff. That's a huge part of what I love about SDCC. I don't fly all the way out to California just to miss everything. That con is way too costly for me to waste one second of it. I really love all the programming they have to offer.

    I'll see you guys there. As of right now, I am going to be setup in the Artist Alley. But, no seating arrangements have been issued.

    Be there to promote a new little monster sketch book along with a fancy schmancy art book that I made last year.

    Sounds like this year is going to be crazy busy. Hold onto your buttz, we will be in for a ride!

    See you there!
    -Jason

    One day... One day...

    EDIT: Hope you guys have fun at this con.

    Be sure to drop by the Mimobot/Vimobot booth at SDCC, you can see some of my custom toys there. And possibly win the one on the right, there will be a raffle everyday.

    Woot! just found out im going. Im probably gonna go broke this comicon...tons of stuff i wanna buy. One book in particular Alien Race the "third edition" of the skillful huntsman type books put out by the same people that did skillful huntsman. Those books are inspirational gold.

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
