I got to meet some industry folks as well in the Artist Alley. I spoke with Rob Thornton whose work can be seen here. We had a good conversation about keeping a portfolio and breaking into the biz. I also got to meet Thomas Dougherty an upcoming illustration artist with a published children's book.
I spent way too much money, but walked away with bags full of inspiration. It was great seeing all the costumes and effort fans put forth. It was fun to talk to new people who understood what it meant to be a geek or nerd, etc, and feel genuinely free to be different. I can't wait to go next year!
