I ALSO ACCIDENTALLY YELLED AT A KID.

Baltimore Comic-Con Table.

Baltimore Comic-Con was a few weeks ago, and I had a swell time with Emma Rochon and Ariyana Suvarnasuddhi at our Society of the Okay table. To look occupied (because I seem extra-unapproachable when I'm just sitting there, glaring into the middle distance), I drew Molotov Cocktease, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and Triana Orpheus, and, surprisingly, they all found homes. It was great. I neglected to properly document most of my drawings, but you can see Mol below and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch above, kind of, sort of. I did Venture Bros. characters because their outfits are burned into my brain, though I admit I did text to confirm which side Mol wore her eyepatch.

Even though I only managed to walk through the floor once that weekend, I got to meet artists and writers that I greatly admire. I'm going to go ahead and pretend I didn't weird them out too much. There were also people that said that they were already familiar with my blog/Twitter, so hello to you guys too. It was great putting faces to usernames. Thanks, everybody. You have no idea how pleased we were about the response.

I was holding off on selling prints and shirts online to make sure I'd have all sizes available at the con, but that's over now, obviously. For those of you who are interested in buying any of the three pictured prints (digital, 8.5x11) or a shirt (American Apparel unisex XS - L), just throw me an e-mail (hidden away here) and hopefully we can work something out. I'm also putting together materials for my school's upcoming Art Market and finally putting things in my Etsy shop, so availability/sizes are limited.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I must re-watch the Venture Bros. season premiere for the thousandth time and then do that "glare into the middle distance" thing I'm so good at.

  4. Hey, cheers, Dr. New Fan/Hypercube. Much appreciated.

    Niki, it was a pleasure to meet you as well. Thanks again for stopping by!

    And Henndricks, there's not much story behind it, as it was exactly as it sounds. It was within, like, the first hour of us being there so I got a lot of crap for it from my tablemates for the rest of the con. People also walked in on me fake-punching my friend a few times, which was awkward.

  5. He asked you out on a date, didn't he? Poor sucker.

    And it's never going to matter what name I go by, is it? You're always going to spell it wrong on purpose. P:

  6. Does your sign say 'Annie Wu Thongs $20'?

    That would be awesome.
