MEGACON 2011 REPORT

Whew...What a weekend we had at Megacon in Florida! It's almost a week later and I'm still exhausted, lol. It's been a while since we attended this convention and I think that was a good thing. Perhaps we will skip a year or two going there, because I did really well at this Con. We sold close to 100 books! Half of that was the first issue of our new series NEVERMINDS and I'm really happy with the reaction we've been getting from people. Thank you to all who stopped by and picked up a copy and/or the SENTINELS series. There were so many interesting people at this Con that it made the entire show fly by. In addition to selling so many books, Jamie Fay sold out of almost all the prints he brought and even had to take commissions back to the hotel at night to finish them. Another cool thing for me, and what made this convention even better, was that I also sold 27 pieces of art! Crazy, huh? lol. I even did 3 commissions while there! One of them of one of the characters from NEVERMINDS (Nina). I don't normally do commissions, because I'm not usually able to focus and handle the table as well as draw. But, I was having fun and was able to handle it all, so I took 3 commissions (you can see them below). All in all, Megacon was a great success and I really want to thank everyone who stopped by our table. It was great talking to you all. Also, I want to thank Todd and David for all their help. You guys are the best! Now, check out some of the awesome costumes from Megacon below.

Glad to hear you had an awesome time there. ^__^ Also sweet news that Neverminds sold well, it's a great start, and I look forward to seeing where the story goes after that ending.

Rich, it's always great to see you and Jaime - and you don't have to thank us, it's not like David and I really did anything (except take up space LOL) - glad you did so well this time!

And thanks, Tood, I appreciate any and all help you ever give us. :)
