Our C2E2 adventure started with car trouble just as Kerrie and I were getting on the highway Thursday night, delaying our drive to Chicago for the show. Friday morning, rental car procured, we were on the road and were set up between noon and 1:00 pm. We were unsure what to expect: I haven’t had a new book in years, plus we needed to leave Sunday around 1:00 pm, in order to pick up our dog where he was boarded.
Pretty much, we were looking at a two-day convention.
In those two days, I sold twice as many copies of the Athena Voltaire Compendium as I did either previous AV book at any three or four-day show I’ve set up at. And, between pre-order commissions and on-site sketches, I did more drawings than ever before at a convention. Here’s a sampling:
But a con experience isn’t just measured in sales. I caught up with countless old friends, and made a ton of new ones along the way. Some day, I really should take a notebook with me to get all of the names…until then, if you stopped by to chat, thank you for making this last C2E2 such an amazing show.
