comic con

No, that's not me dressed as a hobbit. Don't I WISH.

Went to the 2007 San Diego Comic Con last weekend with Jeff and my pals Rain & Chuck. It was big. BIG. I don't really know what else to say about it. So how about some lists?

Highlights: seeing the Hernandez Bros speak about Love & Rockets. Hanging out at the Red Fox Room with my pals and my sister Kate. Meeting internet friends for the first time (Kelly Vivanco, aka verpabunny; Dan Goodsell of Mr. Toast fame; and the poketo folks). Seeing internet friends again (Michael Fleming, aka tweedlebop, and his pal Francis). Finding someone dressed as a hobbit (see above). Big highlight: the inspiration. Seeing so many folks involved in art in different forms (corporate comics, indie toy makers, etc) was hugely inspiring for me. There's room for all of us, I think.

Lowlight: the crowds. It was kind of insane.

But all in all, a fantastic weekend, full of fried foods, friends, and fun. More photos in my flickr set.

I'm so jealous! All my time at the SDCC is spent at my husband's ESRI convention, which means a sea of highwater khaki and faded polo shirts.

My kids LOVE the Kate Kat dolls I knit from your pattern, they've been carried around for over a year now. My little girly has recently asked me if I could make a Hello Kitty type version. Any thoughts?
I'd really appreciate any you could send my way ;-)

Love and Laughter,

I am SO JEALOUS you saw the Hernandez bros. Love and Rockets is one of my big influences.

I recently got a great art book by the work of Elena Dorfman. You should look her up, her work is beautiful and she takes photos of these type of people. I think you might enjoy them.
