I'll soon be on a flight back to Barcelona and, sitting in the hotel lobby, I just wanted to write down what an awesome time I had at London Super Comic Con this weekend while the feeling was still fresh.
This was my first con as an exhibitor and the first hour or so was completely nerve wracking. I panicked inside and I was absolutely certain I wouldn't sell a thing for a while but, soon after they opened the doors to the public, I got my first commission (thanks, Paul!) and they didn't stop coming after that. I actually had to start writing the names and characters down on a piece of paper so I could remember what I had to work on next. I had an actual commissions list! It completely blew my expectations out of the water.
So a huge, huge thank you to all the people that supported me. Not only the ones who bought stuff but those that stopped by to say a kind word or two just as much. Those that seemed literally shocked that I didn't work in comics yet and their simple "it's a matter of time." The kids that looked wide-eyed at the stuff I had on display. The ones that, after looking at my Cowboy Bebop print, allowed me to join them in reminiscing about the show. The guy that entrusted my with his Dan Slott signed Superior Spidey sketch cover. My kind neighbors at the Artist Alley. The complete pros that handled the event. A massive thank you goes out to all of you.
It's a strange feeling to have done so many pieces these couple of days and knowing that I might never see again. Because I was so busy, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to make my way to any of the portfolio reviews and I didn't see much of the con either but that's a small price to pay for being on the other side of the fence.
So thanks again to all and yeah, will definitely be back next year.
