I had a fun day at the Mini-MegaCon in Orlando. I got to chat with people I only see at cons so it was nice catching up. Talked with Craig Zablo & John Beatty a bit. Desperado's Joe Pruett and I caught up on some work we are doing together. Also caught up with Mike Perkins, Casey Jones and Jeff Parker. I hadn't seen Parker in years so that was nice. He gave me the secret to his success, and for that I am grateful. :) And I did some sketches. Here are two of them:
First up for Lan Pitts is a sexy librarian. (Yes Royce, she's a redhead if you like) Lan requested this and mentioned Gil Elvgren for inspiration and I was off.
Next up, my oddest request: The 1960s Batman tv show version of the Batmobile. Yup, the Batmobile. I thought it came out pretty good, and so did Keith, who commissioned it.
Like I said, the show was fun. The only mishap was getting convention food in the shape of chicken tenders. I bit into it and thought it tasted funny. Not "ha-ha" funny. That's when I noticed the darn thing was not cooked. Only the batter got cooked. They were very nice at the concession stand, giving me back my money and offered me anything else I wanted. Even if it was from another stand or cart. I thanked them but declined. I had lost my appetite.
Back to the show tomorrow!
