Hooray! Last week at Comic Con was a great success! ??? My first-time exhibiting in Artists' Alley is in the books and I couldn't be happier with whole experience. Thanks to everyone who made it great for me – fans, friends, family, artists, and professionals. It was just so much fun! ??? I have a bunch of photos to sort through and commissions to finish up, so stay tuned for more highlights coming soon! . . . #sandiegocomiccon #comiccon2018 #comiccon #legothanos #infinitygauntlet #sandiegoartist

It’s my very first Artists’ Alley tabling experience! I’ve never had my own convention table, but this year (or last year rather while applications were being accepted) I decided that I just needed to try and apply. Carpe diem! Reach my life goals before I die! ;D

Actually, I’ve been seriously second-guessing myself all year. SDCC welcomes hundreds of thousands of attendees… the most talented and prestigious artists show their stuff… I must be crazy to think I can show my art in the same space! Maybe I should have chosen a smaller convention as my first-time tabling experience? Maybe I should be baby-stepping into becoming a convention artist? But, oh well, I guess my story will be wrought with risks! Here goes nothing.

I’ve always loved SDCC – The big studio exhibits! The celebrities! The cosplayers! The amazing artists! It is the biggest and most exciting culmination of entertainment all in one place and it’s bonkers that they even approved my application!
