The Maui comic con is happening this weekend. I went yesterday.
It was so much bigger this year. There were a LOT more people attending, and a LOT more of them were in costume. It is such an accepting atmosphere. I love it.
The vendors were in the same place as last year, but the artists were in a different building. There were more of them, so it was a bigger room. I walked past one artist who talked to me like he was trying to get me to hire him. I wondered if I looked like some kind of artist-hiring person. I did tell him that his drawings were gorgeous, because they were.
I was surprised and excited to see someone whose work I knew: one of the artists who worked on Ren and Stimpy. I hung around his table a little while he chatted with others. He had prints of some drawings he did. They were only $30, so I got one. It was a scene from “Space Madness” – one of my favorite Ren and Stimpy episodes!
