Quick Pause

There are still more Comic Con photos to be posted but I wanted to take a brief pause to upload the image I did to boost my co-worker's spirits when she had to have some tests run.
Thankfully everything turned out alright in the end.

Comic Con part 2

And now on to the panels! I didn't get to attend as many as I would have liked because it was just so busy and packed BUT two of the ones I did attend were about women in the comic industry. They gave great tips about being a female involved in comics, how to break into the industry, how to increase your web presence etc. Needless to say I loved both of them and have tried to start implementing some of what I learned (like updating my blog).
You can read a write-up of the panel here:
Moderated by Marvel Editor Jeanine Schaefer, the panel kicked off as soon as the panelists filed onstage: artist Colleen Coover ("Gingerbread Girl"), writer Kelly Sue DeConnick ("Osborn"), Editor Lauren Sankovitch ("Fantastic Four"), Editor Sana Amanat ("Ultimate Spider-Man"), artist Sara Pichelli ("Ultimate Spider-Man") artist Emma Rios ("Cloak And Dagger") and writer Marjorie Liu ("X-23").

Photos from Comic Con - Finally!

So to start off the very delayed New York City Comic Con photo-dump I'm going to post all of the cos-play photos I took. Now, mind you there were SO MANY amazing ones I didn't get photos of, so this is a small cross section.
And apologies, these were all taken with my phone which doesn't have the best camera, but I was just happy to have anything.
If anyone can tell me who or what this thing is or from I would appreciate it. I just thought it was a way cool costume. Also, shame on me for taking the photo with the light so strong in the background - I am certainly NOT a great photographer.
Cool station where you could pay to sit in the DeLorean and have your photos taken with an impressive looking "Marty" and a super creepy, not so impressive "Doc".

Excellent Dr. Horrible costume from "Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog".
Green Lantern chick - I have no clue if she's a specific character or just "Green Lantern Corp", but awesome costume either way.


Power Girl and Elastic Man - really sharp costumes.

Wolverine and Zatanna

Wolverine and Zatanna I see you!

And another well done Zatanna costume.

Overdue Post - Art from class

Forgive my lack of posts - it's been very crazy lately. Here are some sketches from the two classes I just wrapped up teaching - Cartooning & Anime.
