[Leanne] ComicCon Report

First — welcome new readers, ‘specially the ones who came over from (the super-awesome) Aaron Williams’ blog. It’s not totally obvious, but the first Saijiki Story is Autumnside, and chunks of Winterside will make more sense if you read that first. You can reach Autumnside through the link above, or through the red Autumnside button on the right-hand nav bar.

ComicCon was *terrific*. I got to meet Phil Foglio (Girl Genius), and Aaron Williams (PS238 and many more) and Aimee Major (Japan Ai) and Jeph Jacques. I got to sit in on panels with Kazu Kuibushi (Flight) and David Petersen (Mouse Guard). And so many others! It was amazing … and y’know, you’d think I’d be jaded, with ComicCon being right in my own backyard. No. (: I had a fabulous time.

I learned a lot from the panels I went to (digital painting! Oo!), and a lot from a long conversation with Aaron Williams. I’m sure what I’ve learned will help me bring you folks an even better comic as time goes on. (:

Speaking of … spending too much time in the convention has me thinking about a couple different comics outside the Saijiki Stories universe … now to find the time to draw those, too! (:
