Not just crazy in the “Man, this weekend has been CRAZY!” kind of way, but also in the “Oh look, there’s Boba Fett talking to Dr. Who!” kind of way.
Yes another year at FanExpo is passed and my brain is still trying to figure out what just happened.
This is my third year attending but my first year going more than 1 day. We were there open to close Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was fantastic.
Lots of great artists and celebrities and cosplayers. I mention artists because I spent a good portion of our time there hanging out with the many wonderful artisans and admiring their work.
There were too many to talk about in one article (I’ll follow up with some full pages to feature them) but I will give a quick shout-out to Stephen Sauer of monstermakethis.com and his new card game Aberrant Apothecary. Seriously, this guy is a genius. And I can only assume he is an actual alchemist.
As for the artwork, this was inspired by the wonderful fellow who dressed up as The Cabbage Guy from Avatar: The Last Airbender (which, by the way, you should watch), minor character who only shows up to be the victim of tragic herbicide.
After seeing him on Friday, we agreed that a movie poster was in order. I started this on Saturday and actually finished it while waiting in line on Sunday. If you are not familiar with the show or the character, this video should help explain.
And Cabbage Guy, if you are reading this, I will have a print waiting for you next year. This one’s for you.
