Megacon 2005

I just got back from my stint as a be-wigged booth girl (check out the pigtails) for my friend artist Joe Pekar at Megacon 2005. It was a great time–I met a lot of local artists, signed some prints, had my picture taken a lot, saw a LOT of wildly-dressed people, and managed not to have any of the glazed almonds being hawked at the vending cart right within my line of sight. Joe was sharing a table with another great pin-up artist, Alberto Ruiz, who did a quick sketch of me while I was chilling in the booth. I wish I’d taken a pic of his drawing. 😥

My friends (and fellow artists) Eraklis Petmezas, Joel Carroll and Ed Siemienkowicz also popped on by during the day to say hi, chat, and hand me a huge stack of their mini-comics and sketchbooks.

After spending an entire day surrounded by great artists and art work, I am absolutely dying to draw something myself. :mrgreen:

WoW might have to wait tonight….

Oh, and on a final note: The best compliment I got today from a Megacon attendee was, “Hey, do you work out? Your quads look great!”

  1. Hey! You look great! Must’ve been a lot of fun. Congrats on your compliment! There are few compliments better than the “do you work out…”. I got a good one at the gym the other day “Are you training for a competition?” I was glowing the rest of the day! We might be sick you know… lol Oh, purchased the Keyoe software this weekend. Just waiting to receive my new pda from newegg this week. Can’t wait!

  2. oh sure, maggie gets all the comments about looking great! what about me?:wink: well, i’m just an artist I don’t have to look good! lol.
    Thanks again Maggie for entertaining everyone and getting them to stop by the table 🙂

  3. Thanks Heather and Cathy!

    Amy–what a great compliment you got! 🙂 All I ever get are comments about the quads, heh. Let me know how you like the Keyoe program.

    Joe–You looked great, too. People at work were admiring the return of the goatee. :mrgreen:

  4. Wow, very flattering drawing of you. Sounds like you had a great time. About the comment concerning your great quads, you teased us by only giving us skirt length shots. We demand a quad shot!!:mrgreen:

  5. I loved MegaCon! I’m going again for 2006 🙂 I hope that maybe I’ll see you all there 🙂 :wiz::wiz: This time I’m bringing more money 😛
