Ohh, convention sketches! I finally get to have ones of my very own done! Gotta remember to buy a sketch pad before July.

Anyone else got tips about what to bring to a convention? This'll be my very first one.

Water and food. Every single convention has some kind of food/drink outlet or stall or something only there's always massive queues and everything costs a fortune, so water and just some snack food are always a good idea.

As for anything else... nah, nothing really.

Bringing the right bag to a convention is essential - figure out how much you think you'll buy and bring something that'll be comfortable and easy to manuver in the often tight convention aisles. Don't kill yourself lugging things around (I almost did last year in San Diego). Cons sometimes have a bag check that can be handy if you end up buying a lot or buying bulky stuff. Bring a camera if you can, there's often neat things to take pictures of - creators, costumed con attendees, promo items, friends, etc. Bring cash - ATMs will often charge fees and vendors will not often take credit cards. Bring books by creators that you want signed. If you want to commission sketches for pay, bring good shots of the characters you want sketched. Get a good night's sleep the day before. Oh and wear comfortable shoes.

Re: sketches, If there's artists you definitely want sketches for, line up as early as possible. For two years in a row I've missed getting sketches from Humberto Ramos because I was too far in the line. Bringing pictures of the characters you want sketched is usually a good idea too. Hmm, what else...oh artists are usually much more receptive to a fan if you actually show that your a real fan of their work, not just somebody there to get a free sketch. Let them know that you like their work and why.

I finally registered so I could link to my small collection of LSH convention sketches . After about 2000 I started a new themed sketchbook and doubt that I will get many LSH-related sketches for a while -- unless someone wants to draw me a time bubble or something.

Oliver Coipel is very friendly. When I met him in 2001, he was still working on Legion Lost and he was pretty excited about working on the book.

Since we're smack dab in the middle of convention season, I'd I thought I'd bring this back up and see if people had anything new to share...

I'm surprised that Lashie Poo didn't comment on that M-E Lad pic. Could it be that he missed it the first time around?

I've already said it in my welcome thread but it will be more visible here:

Olivier Coipel will be at the San Diego Convention! That's what he told me.

Maybe with Jean-Jacques Dzialowski which was still hesitating.

Matthew.
You are so a lucky guy!

It confirms that Olivier is a very cool artist because i can't find another one who will give an original like that!

What were the circumstances under this ? was it your birthday or something ? a special event ? a good feeling ? Sorry if i'm too curious but i find this interesting.

That is an awesome sketch Querl Dox (you don't have to scan it in for me anymore)! I think I am going to San Diego this year so I will definitely look out for Olivier! I hope he's not too busy?!? Merci!

If Oliver is going to be there then he'll be on my list of artists to get a sketch from.

Thanks for posting the link MEL. Love that Garth sketch.

I'll have to look out for him as well.

And I'll make it a point to get there early. I know Jeff Moy's sketch list was usually filled within a very short time. I'll expect no less for Coipel.

I don't know in the US but here, usually you have to come very early for Olivier because there is a lot of people and Olivier takes his time to do a great sketch for all his fans!

Oh! and MEL, that's a great Matter-Eater Lad you have! i like it!

I wonder if Olivier will be part of the Marvel booth (if they have one) or as an artist in 'artist's alley'. QD, are you going to make your way to San Diego this year (I'd imagine it would be quite a flight from France).

No, i can't. I don't have any money at the moment!

All i have is spent in public transport and in food because i'm in a small company so there is nothing for that and we have to eat outside every day.

Maybe visiting my parents in august but nothing is done yet (they offer me the flight). It depends on my activity at this time.

What are the days of the convention ? Because i'm working until the end of july.

Is there something near Detroit in august ?

The next Motor City Con in Novi, Mich., isn't until October this year. It's not very big anyway. The big one is in May.

But maybe the Michigan LWers could get together and make one. We'll bring some comics to look at in case you want to buy them, and I can sketch really bad pictures for you. smile

Or maybe we could just all do lunch. smile

Marvel is listed as an exhibitor this year so it could be that they actually have a booth this time out.

Olivier isn't mentioned on either the Artists' Alley or Guest list yet which either means he'll be appearing strictly with an exhibitor (which would likely be Marvel) or his apperance hasn't been finalized yet. I suspect the latter.

Thanks for research OM. I see Adam Hughes and Jeff Moy are listed. Jim Lee and John Watins-Chow has done some legion stuff. Any other Legion friendly folks?

I thought I'd bump this up for people to post what they got at San Diego Con. I didn't get a chance to scan my pieces in because I got in pretty late last night. I was able to see Adam Hughes, Tony Harris, and Olivier Coipel but missed Dan Jurgens and Chris Batista. Where oh where was Chris!?! frown
