I'm almost through posting the sketches I got while at the 2009 MEGACON and since I didn't want to end on a low note, I'm posting this sketch of Flare now before I post the last two. I often ask people to recommend some artists to me to get sketches from and the guy who drew this was someone that Jamie Fay had seen and said to check out. I saw his art and when I got my sketch book back, I asked Jamie to drop it off to the guy. Now this wasn't an amateur artist or someone new. This was someone who had two tables and an assistant with him (and his wife too). So, I figured I was in pretty good hands. The day went by and he wasn't at his table, then later I stopped by and he hadn't started. Finally, near the end of the day I went over to his table and I see my sketch book and his ASSISTANT is drawing Flare in it. Not him, his young female assistant. Now, I'm not sure who she was or how her art is, it could be excellent, but I commissioned him to draw something for me, not her. Needless to say, I was pissed and asked what was going on. They gave me some lame excuse saying he had gotten backed up and she was helping. I told them that I wanted his art, not hers and no offense to her. I didn't want to get upset so I went back to my table and figured I would check back later. Later, I went over to get my book and there was the drawing that you see with this post and a page that had been drawn on but was erased. So, the page was a mess. (Luckily Andrew Charipar worked his magic and draw the Coil on that page and covered the mess, lol). I decided not to mention the artists name with this post as not to cause any problems, but I will let the art speak for itself. Not one of my favorite drawings or experiences though, lol.
