Bean-town, Just Been-there....

Well I made it to Boston and back again in one piece. Though I did nearly hit a wall doing 45 mph at 6:30 am on Thursday morning just a mere 10 minutes into the trip. That was scary, never had a car turn 90 degrees and a slide 15 20 feet on a off ramp....oxymoron? hmm....anyways, got to spend 2 days in Boston, do some site seeing and did some tourist stuff. I've never been to Boston and it was like a mini Manhattan. The subways were easy to manage (unlike Chicago, ugh!), people seemed friendly enough and the hotel I was staying at was perfect. 2 minute walk to the Charlie (subway), a meer 10 minutes from downtown and a 5 minute drive to the convention hall. Saw a few spots I recognized from one of my all time favorite movies: Boondock Saints....I know, I'm a nerd.

Here's a few photos from the trip:













As for the show, much bigger than I thought it was going to be. Good crowd, made a few new friends and fans. Here's a few sketches I was able to bang out, though I missed one or two. If anyone got a sketch but I didn't put it up, email me and I will do so ASAP! Thanks again for stopping by the table and supporting me.

Also I wanna say thanks to anyone who placed a bid on the sketchcards that were up for auction and especially those who won! You helped raise $50 for American Cancer Society. Not bad for only 3 cards and 30 minutes of my time. YAY!

I purchased the Hulk shown in your blog here! Thanks man!

It's going to totally end up on my blog! By the way - I was going to ask if you might be interested in doing a few more pieces like that for me - one of the Leader, the Abomination, Bruce Banner, Betty Ross, and Joe Fixit. Is that something you'd be interested in? I hope so!

You can email me at greyfixit@live.com

Looking at it, I think you'd be a pretty perfect fit for the Incredibles comic over at Boom! if their current artist ever leaves or needs a fill in. You should try and hit up Mark Waid.

I've already tested. Waiting to hear for Disney's approval.
