The last of the Wizard World Chicago 2006 posts...

I would have to say this was a pretty Good Con this year... It mostly had to do with the PEOPLE that I met and reconnected with this year (( You know who you guys are ))... Don't make me name, uh, names... Gus Vasquez, Andrew Kudelka, Johnny & Esmerelda Gomez, Robert, Miranda and their son Remy Perez, Lamorris Richmond, Jiba M. Anderson, Tom Negovan, Ed Dunphy, Alberto Ruiz, and Jose G... Then there's Beth Collier, Nicky's friends Caitlin, and John from outta town...

Raf and I were also interviewed for our BIP (( Book In Progress )) "BLACKBIRDS", by our friends Victor Cantu & Company of
  • "Fist Full of Comics" ...
  • ... Always Great seein' you guys...

    And, the Voice of Comics, John Suntries of
  • "WordBalloon"
  • fame... This guy knows his stuff... Big THANKS John, for givin' us some AirTime... Check his site out for Cool-Ass interviews and Loads of Info...

    Here's a Promo Postcard we worked up for the con this year...


    We also met a very talented Illustrator this year, who goes by the name Caleb Prochnow... Seen here with his Lovely Wife Annie... As an artist, Caleb is top-notch... As a couple, they were great too watch... I've only ever seen dedication like that with Raf and Amy Nieves... Check out his site from my links-a-roni section...


    This is Beth Collier, posin' with my sketch of "Carlthulu"... It was Pleasure to meet her, since she showed a sincere interest in what we had at the table, and is as nice as She looks... She's also a painter, with some nice work... I'm glad Carlthulu has a new roomate... Next sketch goes to me Beth...


    This the second Carlthulu sketch I did for the "Fist Full of Comics" SketchBook... They're nice enough to post it on their site along with our interview... Next one'll be better Victor...


    This is Teddy the Tentacle, one of my legions of CUCOS! ... This one went to Amy Nieves, well, for just bein' Amy... I thought it might be cool to show the inks and marker colors... What do you think ???


    This obsessive LiL guy is Selfish Sam (( He's an ornery LiL Bastard ))... I've still got Sam... No one was interested in buyin' him... So, I'm stuck with his selfish ass...


    Well that's that for all the Wizard World Chicago 2006 stuff... The next post will just be sketches, for reals...

    Later,

    Tony

    Blackbirds looks great T, just from that one page. I can't wait to see where you guys go with this.

    If you need a colorist, I might know a girl...

    So, WW Chicago, but will there be a WW Texas trip?

    I have nothing else to offer. That's Mar's job.

    Okay, man, I finally read through everything. Do you only get online once a month or what?
