Today’s packing day for Anaheim‘s WonderCon, not to be confused with Louisville, Kentucky‘s WonderFest (see above; to further fog your brain, dear reader, I have illustrated this WonderCon Journal entry with a photo of me taken by Charlie McGrady as we took a little time out to hunt for dinosaurs — still legal in Kentucky — during WonderFest — not WonderCon).
My pal Brian Gaughan will be helping this old dude (me) pack up for the show. I think it’s a little nuts scheduling WonderCon on Easter weekend, but I guess the convention took what it could get. Last year’s show broke all WonderCon attendance records.
NOTE: I will only be exhibiting Friday and Saturday. I’ll be packing up on Saturday night so that I can spend Easter with my family — not at a convention, but at home. I’ll be easy to find at the show, as I’m in a great location. My table is right at the entrance, opposite my pal Bob Chapman and his delightful minions at Graphitti Designs.
Since I won’t be staying in Anaheim but returning home each evening, if there is anything special I should bring for you that I might have forgotten, e-mail me and I’ll swing by my studio on the way down to the show and pick it up for you.
Oh, about WonderFest…that’s coming up in May. I do their official T-shirt every year. It’s one of those rare instances when I don’t insist on doing the color for my design. Lee Staton, one of WonderFest’s founding fathers, always does a helluva job on the color (and sometimes, the added design elements) for my shirts. I’m delighted every time I see what Lee has done. I’m sure that this year’s shirt will be no exception. Here’s a preview of this year’s recently completed design (without Lee’s color):
I’ve got a pretty good track record with my WonderFest T-shirt designs; they almost always sell out at the show. I’ve received an amazing response from folks who have seen this design. I hope that’s a positive harbinger of sales to come…
