I took a little trip last friday to my fav city NYC for NYCC2013
here's my Comic Con image dump - with comments, since my upload didnt put them in any order.
Met Clay & Seth Mann, briefly. Seth looks like Val Kimer. They look too cool for the convention. Clay seemed to be off looking to meet Tom Selleck before i could pick his brain.
My swag: A Suckerpunch print by Clay Mann, love his work and love the action of this flick, i dont care how unbearable you thought it was.
My swag: Teela print by Gerald Parel, his art is siiiik, and got to chat process with him, good guy~!
My swag: an Adi Granov print, dude is incomparable, he basically designed the iron man look as you know it.
My swag: another Adi
My swag: I bought a 3rd Adi?
My swag: and a 2nd Parel =)
Casey Baugh, artist extrodinare. I got to chat him up a bit and see his process first hand. Amazing!
Ha, towards the end of the day i met Eli. Well the cutout is basically as accurate as the real thing as my 4 fantasy teams can attest to - who drafts Eli in 4 leagues???
My swag: another Clay Mann, basically the reason i started to like his art is this image!
My swag: on man that's a sweet shirt
My swag: almost sweeter!
this is where u see daylight after riding the Secaucus Junction station
the way in
some megaman things, i took some random images of things so that my look back on this daytrip wasnt so art (pencil, ink, paint & paper) centric
somf Daft Punk light up thing
J. Scott Campbell
Sterenko & Sin-kiev-ich, Sternko is about as tall as Seth Green but dresses like a pimp
Neal Adams work, he was sketching nearby but i must have forgotten to take a picture, eh his picture is on the internet go look at it, he was actually picking his nose pretty hard core, i remember now, that would have been a sweet pic that u can't find online
some Sin-kiev-ich work
more Neal Adams
ah there he is
a car with guns
Ken Lashley commission art, i didnt know who he was, i do now~!

a giant Cintiq with some dude showing off his sweet art
a robot, not yet programmed to obey Asimov's laws
Lloyd Kaufman, awesome
at some point i passed seth green, but i couldnt take a picture because it was for some good cause charity thing, but this is seth green, he's short and can be funny
u think that's a lot of people?
line to the restroom? or to get beer? either way it's not a fun time
i noticed how as the day progressed the number of people just multiplied even on friday
i would have stolen that
Opena can draw~!!!
ahh more Gerald, he has a ton of these MotU prints, check his deviant art
ahhh Sarah Pichelli
annd Casey again
his lovely model ra_hel
a car that flies
ending with zombie mario
in hindsight, i would have taken more pictures but my phone was bleeding battery life as the day went on and the charging stations were insanely slow and growing more crowded by the hour.
I saw a lot of art things and really got inspired, that's my summation - A nice trip if you like geek culture and dont mind crowds.
