Ireland: People are friendlier, and the city, as well as the trains, were extremely clean. They have what seems to be low fat diets. TV sucks, only like 5 channels. Stores and pubs close earlier.
America: People are rude, but keep to themselves mostly. Stores are open til at least 10 pm, not 7 pm as it's irish counter point. Television is much better despite having alsmot 90% crap! hahaha
Regardless, Thanks again to the lads who ran the show and I'll definitely be back.
A brief recap:
Saturday, 1st day of show:
Sold a ton of books, several poster prints, and a few sketchbooks. This very nice couple from Singapore bought three sketches from me. The hardest of the 3, Batman vs Optimus Prime. I sturggled for 2 hours while this sketch! But made it through (photo coming). Ian, shown below, got a sketch of Superman: Red Son, which he stated he was gonna get tattooed. How awesome is that?! I can't think of a better compliment! If and when he does, he promises photos so I can post them here! Keep your fingers crossed!
Sunday, 2nd day of con:
Sold out of everything except 2 copies of Mauled by Machine, sold the very last issue of Convention Confessional Volume One I had originally printed (which will not be reprinted), and was so busy that I had to make a skecth list, my 1st ever, with a total of 8 sketches that day! On top of that, met many lovely people and also sold a few more posters and sketchbooks.
Here's a few photos from that con.....more to come. Promise.
