jam-packed baltimore report~


i was hoping to dole out the pictures and the report from the amazing weekend we had in baltimore this past at the BALTIMORE COMICCON over the span of monday, wednesday and friday (maybe tuesday, wednesday and friday since rich and i were still on the road home most of the day monday...), but i came home to a whole buncha stuff that needed my attention and so here we are on thursday and i'm cramming it all into one.

as for the con, did i say amazing? it was incredible! the place was packed--due, in no small amount, to the presence of none other than stan 'the man' lee!! all day, both days, people were happy, smiling, and all too willing to spend their money on comics, art, t-shirts, and toys! i know i did! it was a fantastic chance to make some new friends, sell a few trades, and, hopefully, garner a whole slew of new perhapanauts fans!

since craig brought his family, my date for the weekend, as i said, was our good pal and haps artist/writer, rich woodall and we had an awesome time on the rides down and back! our extra roommate was amber atoms writer/artist kelly yates and the two of them filled me in on a really cool project that they're working on ! more details on that as they unfold...

craig, rich and i shared our island/booth with matt and suzanne and the ringo scholarship fund. matt told me that they raised a lot of money--people were so generous--and that walking dead artist, charles adlard, was the angel of the weekend, donating all of his sketching proceeds to the cause. thanks so much, charlie--so very kind!

got to see, and have dinner and/breakfast with, leanne and rod hannah, mike estelle, jamar nichols--never enough time to hang out with all the people you want to hang out with at a convention...

so thanks for coming out and seeing us~!

i'll stop talking now so that you can see the only thing you really stopped by for...

...the costumes!!



star sapphire

black canary

(another) nightwing and the huntress

white tiger

a dapper steampunk fellow
(got this picture for bret as we delve even deeper
into the world of steampunk for our latest project
from motionworks entertainment...!)

my pal caleb morea whisked by in his all-too-cool kid flash costume! i was able to stop him just long enough for his mom, mindy, to get this picture of us!

our choopie plush was a big hit at the show and, though i wanted to get a whole lot more pictures of people with him, thing were a little too hectic at the booth. here's one with my sistah, squeeze and another with long-time friend tellos and perhapanauts pal, dave tilley!

that's it for me--i gotta get to work!
be here tomorrow for the latest installment of scott weinstein's "we interrupt your regularly scheduled program..." by scott and...damn, rich woodall! man, that guy is everywhere!
smell ya later~!

blogger just informed me that

Brien said...

Great seeing you (& Stan Lee) in Baltimore this year! Douglas & I loved the comics I picked up from you. Did you see the guy in the Lobster Johnson costume? That one was my favorite this year. Didn't see the Galactus one though. How did I miss him?!

That Kid Flash costume is great!
