journal


So i just got back last night from san diego and boy was it tiring! the whole week flew by but i'm glad to be home to relax for the next couple days. i appreciate all the friends and fans that went out of there way to find the booth and say hi.  i love meeting and chatting with people in person opposed to reading text on a computer monitor.  if all those people hadn't stopped by, i wouldn't even know where to begin to find them!  i took a bunch of pictures but they're not quite up yet so here is a link to jim zubkavich's sdcc gallery!: www.facebook.com/album.php?aid… also had a blast with the udon crew.  crazy fun moments that still make me laugh when i think about it.

thanks guys for making another SDCC fun as always!

i got a chance to play street fighter 4 for a little bit and i have to say, it's REEAALLY fun! i can't wait to pick it up for my 360!   omar dogan and i shared an elevator with stan lee!!  that was pretty surreal.  he's easily the nicest guy in the business.  very approachable and always with a smile on his face!  it's too bad the elevator in our hotel is so freaking fast, or else i would have tried to talk to him more!

also, i might be a bit late on this, but i was totally floored after watching the dark knight last week.  best super hero movie.  ever. heath ledger was amazing and it's so sad that such a talent is not with us anymore. the whole movie was just so frantic and crazy.  intense from start to finish!

now i'm going to go and chill for the next couple days!  maybe i'll put up some sketches!

Sorry I was a little awkward. :) I never know what to say-- Glad you had fun, and got to meet a lot of people-- and I didn't realize how many dA people I knew were actually there. Strange, but cool. :)

I win!!! SD rocks. Maybe there should be Pocket Fighter strips at the back of the Street Fighter books XD!!!

I wish we coulda hung out more! I held most of my time to the people I roomed/traveled with since I didn't know if it'd be rude to ditch them... I should have though; especially since I missed out on the two Drink and Draws! ((the first was because I was hangin' around too long- it was midnight when we left, and we needed to check out our hotel before 11 the next morning).
NEXT TIME FOR SURE, man. I'm going to just shoot up there with my girlfriend- stay at the Marriot too... expensive, but the convenience is worth it.

It was great finally meeting you, though, seriously. You're such a great guy, Joe :D!

hey but your very cool too

i know how tiring it is to just sit down and write. guess what i do..

but hey.. as long as it hits 7..
Go and run as far and as fast as you can.
it helps

It should have been named the Joker Here everyone was excited when joker spoke.

it was my 1st comic-con, even though my life has always been drawing and anime..

Gotta say it was a great experience
