As you know from two posts prior (and my tweets this past weekend), my friends and I got to spend a day down in Philadelphia for WizardWorld Philly. It was a miracle that I got there and it's seriously thanks to my folks for putting up with me and matching the funds I had to allow me to escape the state for a couple of days. = )
It was a good trip! Didn't get crazy with the spending but still had the chance to support my fave creators and a few new ones. Unlike years past, this was a bit of non-stop con. A ton of panels that we all wanted to see practically back-to-back. That was great. What wasn't is I kinda' sorta' packed for the alternative. Had in my backpack the strip book, two script books, a small sketchpad, my sketchbook and my tablet. Adding to the gear was the stuff I bought and the sheer distance traveled around the convention center. By day's end... I was completely wiped. Happy but wiped.
Probably shouldn't have brought all that gear with me (or simply trained for it). Definitely not doing that again (unless I train for it).
Now for the fun part...
Days Spent: 1
Cash Spent: A little over $200
Panels Attended: 5.
Posters/Pics: 1 (A really neat piece from Agnes Garbowska)
Paperbacks/Floppies: 12. 2 collected editions, 9 single issues, 1 Kickstarted Handbook so it didn't need to be shipped to my house.
Extras: 1 Magnet that came free with a fantastic comic.
Whovian to Homestuck ratio: 2:1
I'll toss a proper spread image up to my Tumblr later. For now, I need to write up this next strip as I said I'd answer an Ask next.
'Till next time! = D

Got my old Art Desk system updated and fired up. Figure I'll stream a bit of me working on the inks for this next strip. Going to start it off around 9pm EST (with the usual BS for folks who show up early).
