Okay, here’s the deal: my SDCC 2012 con report is super late because I picked up a really nasty bug while bopping around the convention center. This bug left me sacked out on the couch for two weeks watching Buffy, Frontline, Nova, and MTV’s Teen Wolf (as the mood took me) while my body did its level best to forcibly evict my lungs and launch them into space. Seeing as it’s pretty difficult — some might say, damn near impossible — to draw while hacking up one’s lungs, I spent the NEXT two weeks playing catch-up between my day job and pencilling Jennifer De Guzman’s Womanthology story, “The Vesta” (she’s posted the first page of pencils on her blog – check it out!).
I expect to spend the remainder of the month painting the pages (XOXOXO Painter 12!), so there won’t be much in the way of a con report until September, when I can take some time to, oh, I dunno, eat and breathe and fun stuff like that. To make it up to everyone, I’m going to start my Sketch a Day personal challenge again, starting tomorrow. Yay, pretty pictures! Sketch a Day was really fun and motivating for me, and I’d like to see if I can keep it going for a full year.
In some additional good news, @LadiesMaknComix has posted a review of the Frostbite graphic novel, and they said they think it’s awesome! Yay, thanks so much, guys!
At long last, I’ve almost completely shaken off this case of con crud, and am feeling like something resembling a human being once more. Starting next week, I’ll be posting my convention highlights.
No con report yet – I’m pretty sick. I picked up a really nasty case of con crud, totally lost my voice. Been lying on the couch in a haze, watching the suck-seasons of Buffy and knocking back Nyquil shooters.
We survived a detour through California’s agricultural heartland, intensely bad traffic outside San Diego, even worse traffic inside San Diego, craziness with the convention shuttle buses, and a magic treasure hunt to find our badges. But we are NOW HERE! Up bright and early, heading on over to the convention hall to check out the Lego “Hobbit” figures. Archaia signing at 10am. Wish me luck!
Here’s my current signing schedule for SDCC 2012. There will be three Fraggle Rock signings and one for the Vampire Academy graphic novels. Here’s the current schedule:
Fraggle Rock signings @ the Archaia booth (#2635)
[Official Archaia schedule]
10:00 am – 11:30 am
2:30 pm – 3:30 pm
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Vampire Academy Graphic Novel Signing @ the Penguin Booth (#1117)

For the Vampire Academy signing especially – please do come by! I’m a huge VA geek and I would love the chance to yap with other fans about Richelle’s books. I’ll probably drag along my sketchbook and see if I can doodle up a few more VA chibis.
I will update/tweet as I get more information.
