Yep, I sat on these for a long while. I was very winded from our visit to APE last October. My daughter had just learned how to run and rather than get to view all the artists’ tables I was stuck chasing her down the aisles and outside to the dock’s edge trying to keep her from jumping into the bay. We learned at this event we can’t take her with us when we go to cons. Unlike our oldest who enjoys them almost as much as we do.
We did have a moment when she shut her eyes while one of us was carrying her. During that moment we were able to meet Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera. It was wonderful to meet them and talk monsters. We compared a few notes about what monster shows we watch and my son got one of Bobby’s monster flip books. They also were kind enough to add to our Octo-Puss in Boots book.
Our baby woke and a new crowd came to see Bobby and Kei. However, we got wise started visiting tables separately so, we could enjoy the art. My son loves BumperBoy so, he and his Dad visited Debbie Huey. They were able to convince her to draw us an Octo-Puss in Boots too.
Our visit was sadly brief. We tried to pause at a few more tables but, were completely exhausted from the effort. We might try to go back this year, I’m debating about getting a table. APE 2015 is in new hands. It will be back in San Jose. At my current pace of making work, I think I may have stick with only Designer Con. Maybe next year I can be involved in more shows.
Thank you for contributing to our Octo-Puss in Boots Book! We loves your additions.
