and here it is:

I asked for a Christian Walker sketch, and he told me that no matter how he draws it that it will still end up looking like an Oeming rip off. So then I asked him for Matt Murdock, and he happily obliged.

He was a hell of a guy, he was cracking me and my friend up the entire time while he sketched. He was talking about how he likes old Cowboy music, and I said "Like Roy Rogers or something?" He looked at me and said "No you old Ninny, like Bob Willis and His Texas Playboys." That was the highlight of my day.

Wondercon was pretty fun, but I got worn out quick. I can't believe there are guys that go to cons all the time, and I really can't fathom going to something that is as large as San Diego.

I never met him (He said hey to me and someone else as he walked past us, doesn't count :) ), but I saw him in a few panels when he did Bristol a few years ago. Interesting, funny guy.

Great sketch! Chaykin is awesome.

Man I should've looked for Chaykin in phoenix Con, but I didn't think it would be fair since I didn't have any books he drew at the time :\.

You got pretty darn lucky my friend but for some reason without coloring Murdock looks like Gyrich :sad:

Chaykin rules. Plain and simple.
