Restaurant Art

I love going to a restaurant that has butcher paper over the table. We went to a great restaurant in town this evening called the Bone Fish Grill. When I saw the tables I borrowed a pencil from the hostess and she brought me some crayons later. Fun was had. Since we were in a seafood restaurant, I went with a mermaid sketch. Don't know what that says about me. :) And sorry for the lousy digital photo. I am actually surprised it came out this good with the low light conditions and the fact that the camera in my iPhone isn't that good and has no flash.

The con was fun yesterday. Got to meet up with John Beatty, Craig Zablo, Casey Jones, Kelly Yates, Joe Pekar and a bunch of others. Picked up a sketchbook from Shane to do a Speedy (Roy Harper) sketch for him. I really must set up next year. I am planning on setting up for the two day show later this year. All in all we had a good time.

Sounds like you had fun at the Con! Also, gret show of talent with the mermaid picture. I think I will ask for the crayons the next time I go to a restarant that has the butcher paper!

Wish I could have attended MegaCon. Maybe next year. Glad you made the trip safely and had a good time. The mermaid drawing was a great tip for the busboy!!

Wonder if we will see it in EBay?

Good to finally meet you in person and chat for a bit, Gene!

We'll have to see if we can do it again at HEROES-CON!

Hey Gary, make sure you do that. It's fun for everyone!

Royce, we will make a pact right here to be at MegaCon next year! On eBay? Hmmmm, gotta be more careful. ;)

Hey John, Thanks! It was a pleasure to meet you in person as well! Definitely about HeroesCon. If you get over on this side of the state, give me a shout.

It was great getting to see you and your work in person.

It was also funny when I told the guy next to me, "That's Gene Gonzales" and he responded, "Yeah, I know" and proceeded to show about six original pieces he had gotten from you over the years!
