What's all this, then?

Since I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with this blog right now, I've decided to post some of the strange doodles and drawings I've kept in boxes, folders, and cabinets these past 30 years. A lot of these things were done while on the phone, or while testing pens, or out of sheer boredom. There won't be any rhyme or reason to these drawings. I'm just grabbing stuff from off the piles, scanning it, and adding it here. Think of it as a game of cartoon Russian roulette. The neat thing about the drawings is that each one has it's own history and background story. There will be plenty of bonus posts and topical additions as the mood strikes. Forewarned is forearmed.

New York Comic Con 2009: The Pictures

I brought my camera along again, and once again I forgot to use it most of the time. Here are some of the images I DID manage to shoot this time around.



A shot inside our hotel in downtown NYC. Vince is saying "Hello". Those wacky Eye-talians. Note the GINORMOUS bottle of Jim Beam.



The view out our hotel room window. I shot it in hopes of seeing Spider-man swinging by or getting a shot of Daredevil kicking ass. No such luck.



Walking to the Javitz on Saturday. That's Vince, Mike, Tiki and Wood.



In the Javitz headed towards the upper entrance to the Con floor.



In the subterranean general admission queue. It may look like Wood is standing in the middle of a rushing river of comic fans, but the line wasn't moving THAT fast.



Tiki Tim and Vince at the bargain boxes.



Wood digging through some bargain boxes.



The CGS booth is jumping. Pants, Murd, Shane and Tiki chat while Andrew Charipar takes care of business.



Murd and Andrew gleefully man the CGS booth. Pants is bending down in front of Adam for some reason.



What would a Con be without the boys from the Raging Bullets podcast?



The Podcast Arena is BUSY. Pants, Bryan and Peter at the booth. Danielle is busy doing a sketch.



Wood, the ever lovely Pat Loika, Vince and Mike. Shocking!



Danielle Corsetto chatting with a fan. I'm very good at capturing people with their eyes closed.



Vince, Julian Lytle and Tom Katers winding down at Stitches on Saturday night.



Tiki and Wood corner Mike Norton at Stitches. Oh yeah, one of the 2000 Jokers at the Con was there too. Didn't see a single Rorschach at the bars. Hrmmm.



Julian, Tiki, Mike Norton and Vince at Stitches. Yes, that is a mirrored disco ball on the ceiling.



Sunday morning and we're checking out. I thought it would be a nice bookend for this group of photos to end it the same way it started...with someone saying "Hello". In addition to being very good at capturing people with their eyes closed, I'm also very good at taking photos of people flipping me the bird. Thank you Mike.

That's it for NYCComicCon 2009.
