Monday night and my second Comic Convention since moving to the UK is in the bag. Kapow Comic Con 2011 is now a mere memory but it was a lot of fun. I totally dug it and didn't realize how much I missed being at Conventions, talking to people who love comics, and generally geeking out.
Some of the highlights were the T-Shirts that I started to document on the second day. This was sparked by a guy I saw in line on the first day as we waited to get in. He was 6'-5", probably about 350 lbs and I spied him as he finished a breakfast of three chocolate croissants and a can of Dr. Pepper. His shirt was white text and plan black T: "I beat anorexia." Give the man points for calling a spade a spade!
I can't decide what my favourite was this weekend: do we go with the culture clash of Doc Brown's Flux Capacitor Delorean crashing into Dr. Who's phone box? Or the Fluorescent Tube Light Saber? Hmm...
There was a whole slew I didn't get a chance to shoot (Darth Vader trimming a Bonzai tree...), so hopefully at Bristol International and Small Press Expo, the shirts will be equally impressive.
I'll post more in the next few days about what the show was like from a professional perspective. But all in, I'm very glad to be getting back out on the Convention Circuit.
