GEEK PROM ’06
Thats my buddy Ross as Deathstroke with his escorts Mystique,Rogue & Dark Phoenix.
The 2006 Toronto Fan Expo was a pretty big deal for me. These year end, colossal comic conventions kind represent the last huzzah before I truck off to school. I usually buy a butt load of comics, get signatures and sketches from creators and also just enjoy the atmosphere.
So here we are, happy campers at our modestly proportioned table. Even though I didn’t become a millionaire over the weekend, I had alot of fun hanging out with my pals and meeting all sorts of great people.
We’re talking zombies, zombie nurses, little kids, moms, teacher ladies, comic fans, cosplayers, sheridan grads, sheridan students, comics promoters……….zombies. Like I said, great people.
Probably the coolest person I spoke with was this one lady from Quebec. She really looked through my portfolio and pencils. We talked about artists we liked, and she was impressed I knew who Enki Bilal was. She also mentioned she liked my lines and thought I should ‘get picked up’.
I too, felt like she needed to be picked up wink wink
I also did a good amount of sketches for folks, it was fun interacting with people and it was cool seeing the enjoyment they got from the drawings.
Anyways, I’ve got the bug and I’m looking forward to more comic convention action in the future, TCAF here I come!
