Fan Expo 2010

Monday, August 30, 2010

Hey Team

We made it through our first Fan-Expo sitting on the other side of the table. It was a whirlwind of a weekend and I still can't believe its over already. I have shown up for years and I always come away thinking that next time I should get a table. I am so glad that I finally did (and had a reason to) because we had nothing short of a great weekend.

Being new we had no idea what we were doing Friday afternoon but we learned a lot fast over the weekend and by Saturday I think we were rocking a pretty decent set up. Here is a picture of our set-up from Saturday morning. It didn't change too much after that other than us getting more drawings up behind us.

Speaking of drawings, we had a steady stream of requests for sketches and Max was nothing short of a rock star not stopping till everyone had what they wanted. Sunday he barely moved from his seat and I think I nearly killed him by selling copies of his book for him to sketch in on top of the commissions he took on. Here are a few examples of the stuff he was dishing out.

The main reason we were there was to let the world know about The Adventures of Rusty Blanketts and Mustache Carruthers, our soon to be released free web comic. We had the first ten pages with us as well as some concept art for future arcs, and it was great to finally show them to the public. We couldn't be happier with the reaction they got, and after working on them behind closed doors for so long it was a relief to see our two favorite adventurers embraced so unanimously. So to everyone that dropped by our table over the weekend, whether it was to get a sketch, buy a print, pick up Max's book, or even just to say hi and check out the pages, Thanks so much for your kind words, your support, and for being gentle with us on our first Fan-Expo weekend.

Stay Awesome

Love the Queen of Blades Max drew for me. Wish I picked up that Wolverine sketch but oh well.

Hey J.J.

No problem, the pleasure is all ours. Thanks for your support and kind words...and also the sweet Star Wars pin, it has a place of honour on my canvas art supply bag.

I'm really looking forward to seeing your comics! They're going to be available to read online right?
