I debuted a preview print copy of Maize during the event, and took a very long, rough train to get there. Never try inking with a quill pen on a train!
One commission I had was a Hawkeye, for a young lady who was working for a comic company there. She had a thick sketchbook of only Hawkeye sketches, and I noticed that the page before mine was a sketch by my old friend Levi Skeen who I still see at shows a few times a year. He was actually the first artist who ever inked my work, which was a good learning experience for me... oh man that would have been in 2000 or 2001 maybe. I still have some of those pages around here...
Good show, exhausting though. A lot of the very big pros gave me quite a bit of their time, so a big thank you to everyone who reviewed my work and suggested improvements!
