Before I get started….
I just want to let everyone know that I’ve updated the “Hominids” store! You can now buy Chapter 5 and get the trade paperback of issues 1-4!
Okay, moving on. Last weekend was Denver Comicon.
This year it went over Memorial Day weekend. Saturday to Monday, instead of the usual Friday to Sunday. The thinking here was, since people will be off work, more people will come. Unfortunately they didn’t account for the fact that Coloradians truly love their mountains. Camping, vacation, and graduation time made Monday one of the least fruitful days of a convention I’ve had. Next year it will be back to its regular Friday through Sunday.
Fortunately Saturday and Sunday were a blast and “Hominids” did pretty great on both days. There is stuff left over! As I mentioned above, products from the show are now at my store. One of the more fun things about the show was on Saturday when Print Ninja was giving free beer to all exhibitors. That was a real fun day. The convention also had its official DCC beer called Hulk Mash! It was delicious.
I also met and chatted with some fellow Webcomic rock stars. Namely, the duo Al Fukalek and Shawn Gustafson of The Specialist, Robin and Cory Child of Ley Lines, and the incredibly sweet Val Brazier of Mystery Babylon. If you haven’t checked out their stuff, please give their sites a visit. They have also earned a permanent spot in my links section below.
So without further adieu, pictures!!!
Look closely. You can see my table from here!

I drew this young lady a rose.
If you don’t know, I used to work on Sly Cooper. There were a lot of Sly cosplay this year.
These were by far the best Sly Cosplay I’d ever seen.
My best Denver mates, Tom and Paul. Paul went on to Art Direct the Book of Life movie. You heard me right. He’s a rock star artist.

My buddy Tom (pictured above) brought his niece and nephew. The commissioned a horse and chicken.
