Connecticon 2006

Nanda and I went to the Connecticon comic convention and met KrisX, Spriteville, Tim, and his brother Andy. Much fun was had. We took pictures!

Here we are outside, Nanda took the picture:

We drew stuff in each other's sketchbooks:

Here is Tim, doing something-or-other:

Sprite:

KrisX:

Nanda was there too, here is proof:

Tim and Andy did some role playing, leaving the rest of us sitting around. For entertainment I drew stuff:

This might be fun to add your own dialogue.

I've never drawn so many chibi's before.

Chibi penises were involved. NSFW Chibi McDuffies is on the same place as the penis. Sorry McDuffies.

After the con we had a hard time finding a place to eat. When we did find a place it took a long time to get food.

Yet more chibis:

I went into detail here: http://comixpedia.com/blog/kris_x

Overall it was more fun to meet CGers than go to the actual con... Moral of the story, screw the fanbase, go for the artists. Oh and Hartford is a horrible place to hold a convention, I'm trying Cali next time or Canada.

PS- You guys rock-eth.

I really like this picture... Not sure why, I just do. Maybe 'cause you all look so adorable. Maybe.

Anywho, moving on...

Here's a scan of the things people sketched in my sketchbook at the Con:

I really had to bump the contrast up on Sprite's (explaining the grey box).

All told, I have to agree with Kris. Meeting you crazy folk was by far the best part of the entire experience, and if I weren't meeting people (or manning my own table) I probably wouldn't bother with ConnectiCon again. But be that as it may, meeting up with you guys was worth the price of admission. :D

For the record, we were playing Pirates. I totally decimated his fleet with my kraken and Davy Jones. :twisted:

The owl here is supposed to represent my brother. He couldn't decide what kind of avatar he wanted, and we eventually settled for this. He's an artist (went to school for it and everything) with a passion for drawing birds of prey. It was either that or a Roman Legionnaire (he also re-enacts).

The Chibi Chibi still makes me laugh. :lol:

I haves me a new icon! And the Chibi Chibi makes me want to obey him... I don't know why... but I must.

I just noticed KrisX's mouth in the lower left corner. That cracks me up.

Okay, finally our sketches:

Andy doesn't like all the Naruto ninjas present at these cons.
Plus, the closest we'll get to a Stinky self portrait.

Not too sure where Andy was going with the bottom sketch there...I think he was going for a Silver Surfer thing.
