MAN did i need that nap! So who wants to hear about my AC experience? Well shoot everyone else is doing it!
Thursday: I arrived!
Made it to AC at 8pm, and crashed on a semi soft bed. I needed the sleepings. The train ride was was fun. I love the passing scenery, and like the little kids on the train, i giggled every time i saw livestock. I had to sit next to a sweet old lady, and a family of amish, so I was unable to work on my smutty smutty commissions. I did do two PSR strips and watched lots of MLP FiM Season 1.
Friday: Got my badge!
This day I got my badge. It was the first non-sponsor badge, and it was a line. and no free t-shirt. I can't believe I missed getting the free shirt. After a little walking, I decided to sit and sketch while the dealers were setting up. Fortunately it was right next to a cute girl tag named Bunny. It was her first con, and she was a local.... so naturally I had to chat her ears off. Its so nice to make a friend. She was a pony fan too, so we batted ideas around and silly notions on the stories. I think she was too young though. When she got the blank look on her face with my G1 references, I knew to put the reins. Still she was fun, and we had a great time at the "Cuteness" tutorial. I showed her around the dealer's den and artist alley. After that, she went her way and I went mine. I had friends to meet and nothing will keep me from my hellos! I met Chakat Windshear first and he taunted me with smutty awesomeness (and candy cigs). I was a good boy though.... that day. We chatted a lot of evil ideas, and then I went off to say Hi to Kae, Liz and EL. Kae and Liz were stationed near a leather stand, so I bet her muse was fueled with fun bondage ideas. I know mine would be XD. We had dinner at the fish market, and I am on a mission to make my dittos breed many different eggs to help Kae fill her pokedex. I need to get a new battery for my pokewalker. While they went off to do home work and pop a question (So awesome!) I wandered the convention a bit looking at costumes and sketching like mad. And after that, I went to bed.
This is the day I hit my favorite stands for swag. Buttons, comics, and a full size Sailor Jupiter pillow (soooo soft)! Chakat Windshear and I talked about much more art evil. I got to meet Kayla-Na at dinner last night, and she was a real sweet lady. Awesome art too. I got another Cebine pic from KV1NN4 at the last minute, I spent the evening in the zoo chatting with Bar-1 and looking through his amazing sketch pad. We talked about music, books, bunnies, and drunk ninjas. I was inspired by EL to see about getting a table next year. If I can swing it, you might see me lurking around Artist Alley on the other end of the table. Mwahahahahahahahaha!
Sunday: Train Ride home!
Who the heck schedules a train ride at 7am?! I spent the ride watching the entire season 1 of Blinky Bill (more hentai potential than I recall). When I got home, I crashed into my bed. I never could get comfortable in hotel beds, so it felt great to be home. I did a whole lot of drawing, and my micron pens are dying at the moment.
All in all it was a wonderful vacation.
