Well, I am back home in the Bay Area and tales of my adventures at the San Diego Comic-Con 2009 continue.
The convention was as great as always. I was working for one of my favorite places, the Cartoon Art Museum. They were holding their 3rd annual SketchAThon fundraiser where artist donated there time to create art for donations to the museum. To find out more about the Museum at www.cartoonart.org.
It was amazing to see different artist who would bravely take on all sort of interesting challenges for folks who wanted a drawing. I have posted photos of some of the artist who perticipated in my Comic-Con 2009 photo set on Flickr.
I have to admit that as an artist it was hard to drag myself away from the booth with all the amazing art that was being created, but I was able to wander the exhibit floor to re-connect with friends and see the new comics and other products that where available.
On Friday night of the convention, a group of us went to Dr. Sketchy’s San Diego to draw a lovely burlesque dancer/model/actress Lady Borgia. It was guest hosted by Dr. Sketchy founder Molly Crabapple who had just released a new graphic novel â€œScarlett Takes Manhattanâ€. Lady Borgia modeled as Molly’s character “Scarlett.”
There are plenty more details that will have to wait for now for this part of the trip, because I want to continue on in my next post to Disneyland and the Friends of the Magic meet up.
Stay tooned for more.
