I had such a great experience at I-Con and was on about 9 panels in all over the course of three days. I met fantastic fans, fellow creators and made wonderful connections. Being on panels with people whom I adore creatively and have been in the industry for years made for an intimidating if not wholly amazing experience.
Plug time for my fellow creators: Please check out Johnny Wander over at http://www.johnnywander.com, it's a webcomic made by Ananth Panagariya and Yuko Ota. Check out Michael "Mookie" Terracciano who has a webcomic over at www.dominic-deegan.com, also Elaine Lee who is having her book Starstruck reprinted and it looks simply amazing and she was so sweet, there was also Mark Mazz who has been in the industry for years and is helping to art direct a new series called Psychosis he was so kind and helped me through my first panel, and of course there was Peter David who needs no introduction the man is awesome. There were also two artists that I thought were just amazing David O. Miller(http://www.davidomiller.com/) who was so kind and generous, and Daxiong(http://www.flagstudios.com/) who was clear, concise and very supportive. I was on a panel with these people and am still trying to process that as I felt a bit out of my league.
Thank you I-Con for a wonderful experience and I hope I was not a let down for those who attended the event. Oh, and I want to send a big shout out to Matthew Stingone who ran the comic track and was so helpful and had a great supportive staff working with him! And a big old thank you to my family and friends who were utterly amazing and patient with me. You guys are awesome! All in all a thumbs up experience and hope I get an invite back for next year. Also meeting Charisma Carpenter didn't hurt, man she is gorgeous and was very nice.
