Despite the huge SNOMG dumped on us all last week, I managed to make it out to Katsucon 16 this past weekend. I did a short review of the convention for the podcast so you can check that out. Super Art Fight had a table in the dealer room so I spent most of my time just hanging out with friends talking about art and comics and all sorts of geekery. Gave out a crap ton of cards and buttons (thank you Mod Buttons! They came the Friday before I left for the con).
It was a lot of fun to get back on the circuit. And I got to do an Art Fight with one of my very favorite artists of all time, Jo Chen! While I hunt for photos and video from the event, here’s a link dump of awesome people I got to hang with:
- Jo Chen – She easily kicked my ass at the Art Fight. So much fun!
- Ross Nover – Ross’s System comic will some day rule us all. Mark my words!
- Michael Bracco – The best of Baltimore and a smart marketer. I will learn his jutsu.
- Jamie Baldwin – Some day, we will battle for who gets to use the name “Jamie.”
- Dirk Tiede – He just released his third book! Go get it now!
- Garth Graham – One of the best dressed of our art fighters.
- Hawk – Fellow mac head! The second Applegeeks book is out in store right now!
- Brian Wilson – He had a guest strip week where one of his fans dressed up as his main character for a photo comic. Nothing says webcomic love like cosplay!
- Mookie – One of these days, I’m gonna find out why he’s called “Mookie.”
- Shawn Handyside – The genius behind Halolz. He’s also got one of my shirt designs for sale (they’re on clearance because quite frankly my shit doesn’t sell).
- Morlock Enterprises – Jim builds some pretty amazing stuff.
- Chris “The Impact” Impink – The godfather of Super Art Fight himself and creator of the Wheel of Death. He was staffing the con this year so we barely got to see him.
- Kara – She hosted the cosplay so I barely got to see her either.
- Super Art Fight – They want us back next year! So mark your calendars because Super Art Fight will descend upon Katsucon 2011!
I think the next con coming up is Connecticon which is in the summer so I’ve got plenty of time to get some stuff ready. Katsu was a nice test run, but I’ve got to step my game up.
