Just about to wrap up my trip to the Wizard World Comic Con in Austin, Texas and wanted to say thank you to everyone who came by to see Greg Harms and myself and bought the UNDERTOW PREVIEW, or visited the website. We were hosted by McLain McGuire and the Capstone Comics Publishing group in Austin and you will never in your life meet a more talented and fun group of people so thank you to all of them as well. Can't remember the last time I had so much fun.
Here are a few pictures taken by members of the Capstone group. I'll put up more when I make it back to Washington. Also, a message out to Rita and Brian Moore--I love you guys you made Greg and I feel right at home. Can't wait to see you again. Thanks for the memories, folks.
Greg and Tommy Phillips working away, selling and scribbling. Two great guys, of course. Keep and eye out for CAPE TOWN, Tommy's upcoming book from CCP.
It's me! I was seated next to Greg so I've got a bunch of his beautiful prints along with some issues of Pinpoint from Big Dog Ink that he did some inking in.
And a huge highlight of the con for me--meeting Joe-Freaking-Madureira! This guy was on the Uncanny X-Men back when I was in college and has been a huge influence on comic illustration ever since. Guy is maybe forty years old now--just a kid back when he came on the scene. Very cool guy. I had the chance to talk with him for a minute and he signed some of the UNDERTOW PREVIEWS for Greg, GQ, and myself. It was worth the hour and a half wait. Ouch.
