- Apr 19, 2011It was the first time that we attended any of the quick sketches and we loved it. Such a unique experience and great way to raise money for worthy causes. Over the 3 days, we won 5 pieces our favorites being a piece Dave Wachter did of Jack Skellington as Ghost Rider, a Chris Moreno sketch of Namor in a bar and an Elecktra sketch that I have no idea who the artist was as I didnt recognize the signature on it. A friend of ours attended for the first time and scored a nice Billy Tucci Wolverine in the quick sketch on Sunday. Stuart Sayger is just amazing to watch during the quick sketches, the man is a maniac and turns out amazing work so quickly.
For the first time since I've been attending, I stopped and talked with Ed Beard Jr. His genre is generally not my thing, but found myself really enjoying much of it and found him fascinating to talk to. I know now that he's going to be a regular stop for me from this point forward. I got my original Bettie Page sketch from Jay Fife that he was holding for me, so that was a high point for me. Jay pointed it out when I was talking to him on Saturday when he said that the whole con just feels more upbeat this year then it did last year. I dont know specifically about that, but I know I really enjoyed myself more then previously and I certainly spent more then previously as well.
