san diego comicon doodles...

I like people watching at the convention. These sketches are from a break on the patio. The devoted fans were waiting in line for a one minute visit with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima.
If you're lucky you can usually find a chair under a tree or an umbrella and watch the fan world go by. It's also a good place to run into friends, away from the crowds.

A few yards to my left Knights in shining rubber armor were beating each other senseless in the blistering sun with plastic swords.

Good times.

It was awsome! Great panels and video games.

A guy from DC comics told me about a new property of theirs Ninja Zombies which they're developing and looks really cool!

Vince-you always notice the details....not much gets by you. Thanks for these fun observations.

Thanks for using my comments area as a poorly disguised link for this dreadful piece of gore, "Neal". It looks like a zombie-themed equivalent to Ninja Turtles, it's sloppy and has a spliced together look, so it will probably be a big hit. I'm leaving it up as an example of the worst type of property that gets attention at the Comicon.
My favorite scene is the one where the troops are positioned and ready for attack--- behind civilians! I'm guessing DC comics won't return their calls or publish this property, but I could be wrong.

Ry Photo, you always notice me noticing the details, don't you? The only thing missing at the Con was you, we had a lot of fun. There were plenty of photo op's missed. Thx for stopping by.

What a great idea! That Con is a crazy place and it must've been nice to take a break on the patio and just draw. That's it! I'm taking my sketchbook next time. Thanks Vince! Nice drawings!
