I had a great, laid-back time this year. Meaning, I wasn’t hunting down too many panels or running here and there and getting crushed by the crowds. I decided to cosplay as Psylocke from X:Men this year (and it’s my first time cosplaying, ever) and I had a great time walking around and meeting other nerdy people like me! LOL I might be addicted to cosplay after this!
My highlights: Meeting Milo Manara and Chris Claremont. They worked on a one-shot that just recently came out called, X-Women. It’s a silly book, but Manara’s art always seduces me. I had the pleasure of obtaining a few sketches from him and I regret not being able to speak Italian or French!
I enjoyed walking around and chatting with other illustrators/artists. Alot of them gave me words of advice and enjoyed seeing an image of my last painting so it was nice to feel a renewed sense of confidence. I’ve been out of drawing for a while now but really, I just need to practice, push through it and stop being so critical. So, I acquired some tools this week and I intend to hit the ground running, again. 🙂
In the meantime, enjoy some funny pictures of me as Psylocke. I had a blast going around challenging Capcom characters to a fight. -_^
