Well, it's official! Aside from another surprise bout of cancer or something on that magnitude; I should be good to go and attending Gen-Con in Indianapolis during August. I know there's plenty of comic book type conventions; but from the people I've talked to who have actually gone, most are places for networking and not really a place for fans anymore. This will be the last time I'll be attending Gen-Con as it's just getting too big and far too much of a headache driving and lines, etc.
But if you're in the area; look up the old Uncle, I'll be the grey haired pervert in bib overalls amongst all of the cosplayers, etc. I will stand out. The only reason I say if you live in the area; all of the hotels, etc. have sold out in less than 5 hours; so if you're even slightly interested in attending, you'll have to find somewhere outside of a 50mile radius to rest your weary head (or just go for one day; and I suggest you find parking 2 hours ahead of the con opening).
Why do I feel like meeting a few folks? Simple, I've been doing this whole 'art' thing for almost a decade now and it'd be nice to meet a few of you fine folks (and all of the artist booths sold out in less than 20 min). I'll be hanging around the Fantasy Flight booth and if Troma films is around; I'll be over there bullshitting with Lloyd Kaufmann (a really great guy in real life).
Hope to see some of you fine people there; if not, I'll be picking up a stupid go-pro or something like that and shooting vid/taking pics of my last sojourn to a big time convention (been doing it for 20+ years, and my feet are too wore out for that b.s. anymore).
