Hiya once again.
Yesterday Auto Assembly announced me as a guest of the convention again this year. which means that I will be present in my one spot all weekend scribbling away at requests for money.
Just like last year, I consider this to be an amazing honour. I may well be the conventions go-to guy for illustrations, but I'm still a mere fan-artist. Looking along the lineup of other guests, which includes a few potential curve balls that I know about and you don't, and knowing that I am to be counted as one of them is a truly bizarre feeling. But I'm going to try and go about it with a bit more zest this year. Last time I felt very uncomfortable, and I think that may have come across to the attendees and I might not have gotten quite as much traffic as I perhaps could have because of it.
On a related matter, I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone who has requested a sketch from me for collection at the event. At least there will be no problems finding me now! I have as of this morning completed all of the sketches requested of me thus far. If there is anyone else who might like me to sketch them something but haven't been sure, then now's the time to ask. I can pretty much guarantee that any I do beforehand for collection at the event will be better than I could do on the day as I get to take my time with it, rather than feel the pressure of knowing that someone needs something before the end of the day.
Also, everyone that gets a sketch should consider paying a visit to Regeneration One colourist John-Paul Bove, who will be digitally colouring sketches live at his table and producing glossy prints to go alongside your original art.
Either way, thanks for reading. Hope to see you there.
