Springcon: Day 1

Day one was wonderful. Saw a slew of folks that have gone unseen for far too long (completely my fault). Did some sketches, sold some prints, originals, and even some t-shirts. That last one never happens. Learned that sometimes you can get people to do ridiculous and potentially embarrassing things in lieu of payment for a sketch. Even got to use the Square reader for the first time to take a credit card payment. What a day!

Mike, a cool dude, has been getting drawings from me for a number of years now and commissioned a piece for Springcon. He wanted a samurai and a geisha in ink. He got this. He seemed happy. So now it resides in his portfolio of original art. That book has some seriously great work in it so it's an honor to be a part of it. 
Thanks, Mike!

I can only hope that this love fest will continue on tomorrow. Again, a stellar experience. Check it out if you're in the twin cities area. And if you do be sure to stop by and say hello. Until then, adieu.
