Month of Madness

The last couple weeks have been unforgettable. On July 14th I attended the Illustration Conference (iCON6) for the first time and seriously, how much inspiration can one person handle?! The sessions, presentations, and roundtable discussions were fantastic and I met some amazing illustrator people and even some famous ones (cough cough... Tim Biskup... cough). To top it all off, I got to hang out with friends I hadn't seen in months, which is always great.

And if that wasn't enough, right around the corner came Comic Con!

SDCC may just be my favorite time of year. (Ok, it's in the top 3). This year the panels were amazing and the artists did not disappoint. I was able to go 4 out of the 5 days and was thoroughly entertained the whole time. While at every turn there was a book, or a print, T-shirt or a toy I wanted, I held myself back and bought only a few things. This collage comprises the treasures I collected from iCON ad SDCC... from fun toys I couldn't resist to signed books :) And did I mention that I met Tony Diterlizzi?!

So tell me, what did you get at the Con this year that's totally awesome?
