Neither Clyde or Lotto wanted me to leave for Toronto today so they staged a sit-in (sleep-in?) protest in my suitcase.
Yes, I lied. I did indeed mention that Chicago was the end of my con season, but here I am at the Canadian National Comic Book Expo in Toronto. However, this con is always more fun than work as Aman is always kind enough to invite me up as a guest to speak on panels and do portfolio reviews every year. It's much more relaxed, and often a lot more fun, than a lot of the other cons I attend every year. This show also draws cool media guests, and in the past I've found myself drinking beers and doing shots with people like Mini-Me, Billy Dee Williams, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, some of the Buffy hotties, and even Lieutenant Uhura from teh original Star Trek. Elijah Wood is here this year so maybe me and Frodo can share some hobbit ale. Who knows?
Whatever happens, Finch, McNiven, Bagley, Takeshi, Skottie, Middelton and a whole bunch of other friends are all here, so we're guaranteed a good time! (But not too good a time, Mutsumi. I promise!)
