Another ComicCon Cartoon:

“To the bathroom? Naah, we all just want to get changed.”

To the bathroom? Naah, we all just want to get changed.

 

Just came back from the second Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart. This time I managed to walk around and see more of the con, but still got some little drawings in when I actually was at my table. Like this one here, for example:

I wouldn't have been lying - the costume was in my duffel bag.

“I’m completely normal, I’m just working here! There is no cosplay costume in my backpack at all!”

 

I do love working with actual pencils and pens and paper and markers and brushes, it’s fast and it’s cool to have postcard-sized freshly-drawn cartoons for people to see, even though I haven’t sold any yet. Maybe will do some little comissions next time.

Sooo. My first time. It probably wasn’t the last. 😀

This was my table at the con. The left side was the postapocalyptic part with Angel Falls Comics and decorations, right side was cartoons and postcards.

Deep down inside I probably didn’t expect to sell anything at all, so the first thing that happened on saturday was this:

me: "one chocolate bar, please." coffee lady: "...forgot to bring any change money, didn't you."

me: “one chocolate bar, please.”
coffee lady: “…forgot to bring change money, didn’t you.”

Once I started to draw, I realized I hadn’t done any non-digital drawing with actual pens on paper in forever, and how much I had missed that, so I just kept on drawing for the next two days straight. To give me an excuse I invented the “zombie cartoon apocalypse” and had a lot of fun drawing dead people for the rest of the con.

It was the first convention of this kind and size in Germany, and supposedly it was a huge success, so it’ll probably be even bigger next year. I’m looking forward to it – I’ll definitely try to be there again.

Comic Con Germany is happening in my home town this year – June 25./26. right in Stuttgart! So naturally I was going to go there as a visitor – until I found the form for artists on their page and just spontaneously applied for a table.

So guess who’s going to have a table at Comic Con Germany now?! 😀

I’m really excited, this will be my first convention ever and I have no idea what to expect.

At my table I’ll have all 4 (including the new) Angel Falls Comics, some postcards and maybe even a printed version of A Gobo’s Life. Anyone who buys something gets a personal drawing, and whoever shows up cosplaying a character from one of my comics gets a comic of his/her choice (doesn’t have to be mine) and I’ll treat them to a meal at the con. 😉

So if you happen to be at Comic Con Germany in June, visit me at my table (“my table at Comic Con Germany” – I have to say it again and again, it just sounds so cool!), I’m looking forward to meeting you!
