MegaCon


MegaCon was great! I had a ton of fun. Thanks to everyone that stopped by the table. The Issue #0 of BucketBoy sold really well. If you want a copy you can pick one up at www.indyplanet.com I sold some sketches. These two didn't sell, but they were fun to draw. The best part about the convention was meeting all the people. Some great artists and fans were there. The worst part was the motel we stayed in. It was cold in our room so I turned the heater on and 5 minutes later the smoke alarm went off. So I called the office and told her the problem. The first thing she asked was if I had turned the heater on. If they know that the heater smokes you would think that they would fix it. So we turned the heater off, opened the window and took the battery out of the smoke alarm. The next morning after my cold shower, I was drying off and a huge spider crawled down the wall. I hate spiders so I screemed like a girl then smashed it with a roll of TP. I got dressed and went out to get my buddy Josh to show him the size of this spider I had just slaughtered. We went back in to the bathroom and it was gone. Ahhh! I was hoping that it wouldn't seek revenge when I went to sleep that night. I guess it was a bad idea to stay in a one star hotel.

Sounds like an interesting experiece. I don't know if you'll remember me, I was the girl who was saying that Bucket Boy should defiantly be the next big thing( short brown hair, black spiderman shirt...). I read the issue I picked up at MegaCon and I love it! I can't wait for the next issue( and to see more of your artwork)!
