Who are these homeless looking people sleeping on the ground in front of the convention center?

Hundreds of fans stake out a spot around the convention center overnight waiting to get into the event first thing in the morning.

Many wanted to get into the Grant Morrison talk with Gotham Chopra and Sharad Devarajan of Liquid Comics/Studios which was awesome.

I moderated a panel called, Artist As Brand: Rise of the Artist Entrepreneur with Stephan Martiniere, Donato Giancola, Alfred Paredes, Daniel and Dawna Davis of Steam Crow. About 150 artists attended to learn about art career sustainability.

deviantART showcased some of my art on large digital screens for all to see. That was exciting too. Overall the event is an investment in my art business and catching up with other artist friends. It is a lot of work beforehand and it takes me at least a week to recover. I will return next year. It will be an extra special Con as my book will be launched there! Stay tuned.
