Guess what's up next.
had to miss last year's New York ComicCon due to family
responsibilities. I never even got to see or wear one
of the t-shirts I designed for the Blood drive.
But that's going to change. I'm
going to be at this year's con (as long as other family
issues don't pop up). And I want you to wear
your t-shirt .
I'll make it worth your while.
I'll buy a drink for the first10
people I see wearing the Blood drive T-shirt. I wish I
could do more, but if 200 people show up wearing shirts, I
wouldn't have any money left to buy comics.
I'll be wandering the convention definitely on
Pro-Day Friday, and on Saturday. If some tall
mustached nut stops you and asks to take a picture, that
should be me --- hopefully.
Below are the videos I did for my pitch at San Diego Comic Con
International for "Arthur".
Have a peek if you want to see what an introvert looks like
while trying to act like an extrovert (never let them see
you sweat). 4 minutes.

32nd Annual Robert A. Heinlein Comic Con Blood Drive broke all
previous records with a total of 1,070 donations at
the San Diego Marriott Hotel. Attached is a history of the
Comic Con for the past 32 years. The overall total for this
32 year-old blood drive is now 7,538 pints!...
thanks to John Smallwood-Garcia for another outstanding
job on the T-shirt art."
Hey. I'm just glad to
help. As was everyone who donated blood.
Thank you all.
I'm sorry I missed the NYC Comic Con, but at least my art was
there. All the fans who donated blood got a free t-shirt
from the NYC Blood Bank.
Well, I just got back in town and boy are
my arms tired. (Actually, I just got back in town after
driving all the way from
North Carolina, and it's not my arms that are tired.)
I didn't make it to the final round of the 2007 Comic Book
Challenge, but I want to thank my friends and family who
supported me and voted me for me. Especially the ones who
were nice enough to pound away at the computer
keyboard and vote more than just once.
I especially want to thank my father-in-law, Irwin, who
stayed up late and voted until 3:00am East Coast time
West Coast) all the way until the polls closed, or his
eyelids closed, whichever came first.
And, all the staff at
Studios. You really made all of us contestants
feel like winners.
AT&T logged nearly 5 million different ISPs voting, so that
was an incredible response and alot of fun to be a part of
I promise not to send another group email to everyone unless
I'm silly enough to try this again next year.
Next year.....? Let's just take this one day at a time.
