Anybody going to be at Megacon this coming weekend? I'll be there in the artist alley. It's been a while since I've been to a con and I sure have missed them. Hope to see the Benbo represented :)

Any suggestions on other things to do in Orlando? I really want to find a nice restaurant to go to on Sunday night.

I went to this one one time but it's been like nearly 10 years since. I remember it was fun.

If any of you are wandering around I hope you'll say hi. I'll be in the green row of artist alley, table 18. :)

I'll be there in Artist's Alley-- GRAY 7, I believe.

Looking forward to it! Should be a fun show as always. :)

Cool. I plan on going on Saturday, and will likely be passing out some small flyers promoting my comic that's in this month's zuda contest. I also want to check out some of the indie and self-published stuff there. What exactly goes on in artists' alley? Is it just an exhibit for the artists? This is my first "big" con.

From the big-name artists to the new kid selling sketches of his favorite manga characters, artist's alley is where you're going to find a kajillion artists selling comics, prints, sketches, commissions, etc etc etc.

Bring some cash, it's going to be a lot to take in.

Cool Jeremy! You'll be right in the next section :)

Mookie, good luck with Zuda this month! I'll have to head over and check out your comic. Hope to see you at the con! Artist alley is always fun. Like Jeremy said, there's all manner of art to pick from. You can come up with some awesome sketches :)

Lookie! A floorplan!

Girlfriend in a Coma, I will make it a point to stop by your booth on Saturday if you're around. I've only been to one other con, the very small Boston one, which had only around 50 or so tables. It was sorta funny, I felt awkward talking to any of the artists, because I wasn't sure what their purpose was or if I would feel pressured to buy something. Haha. This time I'll be a little more proactive.

Look forward to meeting you Saturday! I read your Zuda entry and liked it a lot. You have my vote, of course.

I'll let you in on my purpose, too- show my comic and art to as many as possible, sketch on demand, and make some new friends ^_^

Hey Jeremy. I strolled by today but you seemed busy so I'll see ya tomorrow maybe. A gorl showed me a sketch she bought from you and it was too cool :)

Hope to see some more of you Sunday. I'll have to post some of the pics I've taken. There was a Black Lantern Superman walking around that was beyond awesome. Hehe

Most of my friends were at the con today. Lulz abounded about the anime kids.

There are an insane amount of anime kids there. I think there should be a steam punk vs. anime brawl. LOL

I think most people forget that Megacon started out as an anime convention. :lol:
