Back from Phoenix CC 2011 and I had a great time overall. Sales were up slightly, people seem to dig ICARUS and people LOVE Harry Potter, sold through most of my HP prints. On the other hand, they seem to loathe Clone Wars, only sold 1 of my Asoka Tana prints. Had a lot of fun hanging with my Comic Improv homies, Derrick J.D. John Dadicus West. Scott Godlewski and Ben Glendenning, even though I barely saw Ben he was so busy. Met some cool new artists and got to reconnect with my long lost love, Rob Osborne. It's always good to see local Phoenicians who have supported me over the years and to catch up with friends that I only see at cons. Next up for me is ACE Comic Expo, end of June in Albuquerque. Looking forward to it. Here is some stuff I drew for people at the con.

Had a great time this past weekend down in Phoenix. I got to see lots of my great comic friends, had a blast sketching all day at Atomic Comics in Chandler for Free Comic Book Day and hopefully I helped raise some decent money for The Hero Initiative in the process. I only took 1 pic of any of the sketches and it came out terribly so I have no photo evidence to show ya. I do have this...
Shannon Denton took this, and I'll have to get him back one day. Awesome. One of the best parts of the weekend was abandoning my low-carb diet (which is working) and having the best 3 days of dinners I have ever experienced. Friday night we hit up Republic Ramen in Tempe. Delicious udon, edamame, gyoza and Orion beer. Only brewed in Naha, Okinawa, Japan. It was the best.
Saturday night I was treated to a five-course dinner at Cork restaurant in Chandler. I had Kobe beef, ahi, steak tar tar, foi gras ice cream, salmon, amazing roast beef and creme brulee for dessert. Then Sunday night I had homemade lobster tails, delicious steak and homemade creme brulee. Man, it was a good weekend, gained back a couple pounds but it was worth it.
