#1: The Shy Creatures kids book is selling like crazy. By far the most popular item at my table.
I just left some parties with Oeming and Bendis, and Jen, and Maleev.
Great to see so many of you at the con. Mario all the way from Belgium, and the usual suspects!
The Wednesday night Preview night was busier than ever. This whole day was brisk, too.
I hear that Friday and Saturday have sold out tickets. So it is going to be madness!
We are rockin the Image comics booth. Friday night is the Live art show at kava Lounge.
I'll see more of you tomorrow!
#2: I think all [The Shy Cretaures] books sent here will be gone by Saturday. I'll ask them if they have any extras to send to me for Chicago. I hope so, but it wasn't in their plan. I'll see if I can get some though.
#3: By the way the con was super busy today and non stop cool things.
Masioka/Hiro from Heroes was in the elevator as I left the hotel. Wil Wheaton (Stand By Me & Star Trek) came by my booth and talked for a while and picked up some Kabuki.
The director from The Air We Breathe picked up some too and we talked for quite a bit about working together.
Tara MacPhereson stopped by.
Rosario Dawson stopped by with her friend Tara and Gus Vazquez and they all got The Shy Creatures books. Rosario was lovely and kind as always.
Chris Allo and Axel Alonzo hit me up for some new Marvel covers, so expect some cool Wolverine covers (among others). (This one is for you DasNDanger).
(Also, I was able to find some of the Echo trades, so I will have some available at Chicago).
I did a little interview thing for the next Giant Robot Magazine. An interview for NPR. And a bunch of other interviews. And the LIVE ART thing Friday was a blast.
The Shy Creatures book is still the best selling item at my table. Moving faster and better at a con than any book I've ever done. (Went through like 8 boxes so far, with just a few left for Sunday).
And THE ALCHEMY OF ART is also a big hit. Both of these going over great with teachers and librarians, etc. And bringing a very diverse crowd to my table.
Lots of foreign translators looking for Kabuki, too. Expect new Kabuki in Greek and Japanese, and Chinese soon!
So much happening at my table every minute it is hard to keep up with it; the con is so busy!
