Last weekend, I exhibited at the WizardWorld Philadelphia Comic Con and I would like to share two meetings which I found to be nothing short of awesome.
The first is Doug Sneyd (pictured below). If I can pull off a career as awesome as his, I will have considered myself a success. Mr. Sneyd’s work is some of the most iconic comic art one can imagine, gracing the pages of Playboy Magazine for the past 50 years! It was one of the few times I have been star-struck by an artist. It was also one of the first times I considered throwing down a few hundred dollars on an original piece of art (at a comic convention, that is). And if that were not enough, he even asked for MY advice on how to fund a web comic he created! It’s unfortunate I couldn’t give him any sound advice on that front.
The second (and third) is Bill and Danielle Frazetta, Frank Frazetta’s son and grand-daughter. While I can’t say I had any extended conversations with these two, it was nevertheless an experience to have been in the presence of Frazetta’s blood. Yes, I am that geeky. I absolutely love Frazetta’s work and to have actually met his kin is a memory I certainly hope I don’t forget.
More comic conventions coming this way: Baltimore Comic-Con, and SPX!
