Heya guys!

The big San Diego Comic Con is coming up in a week and I'll be there this year!  Of course i'll be with the Udon Crew (although from the sound of it it sounds more like the Udon army!).  This will be my 4th SDCC that i'll be attending and every year i always feel like i didn't see as much as i would like.  So THIS year, along with doing all the con commitments that i need to do, i'm going to try to really take in the experience not only as a professional, but a fan as well!

So here's my question to you guys that are going:  What are YOU going to be doing at SDCC.  What events are you looking forward to?  Are there any exclusive contents/items/swag that you want to purchase?  what are they?  I'm trying to find the coolest SDCC exclusive this year and bring it home with me.  As long as it doesn't cost $34125236... and is smaller than a suitcase.... and i won't get arrested for it when i cross the border.... :D  

What sort of things are you guys going to be doing during the nights?  Any wicked rad parties to attend?  I know every year there's a drink and draw, and those are always fun.  so i'm going to have to pick up a little sketchbook for that.  I'm not the biggest drinker, but i can definitely compensate with some mad mad drawing yo!

Like every convention, i'll be available for commissions, and signatures are always free.  I'm getting excited just thinking about it all!  So let me know!  Even if you're not going, will you be keeping tabs on all the events?  ok that's it for now!

Imma hit up the Red 5 Comics booth and finally meet all the people I've worked with for the past couple years, look for all the artists and film directors I've geeked out to, and if I'm lucky, meet Hideki Kamiya.

I'm so fucking excited to head there man!!! This year I'll get to do whats I wanted to and hangs where I wanted to, lol. I think I forgot to have you sign my Street Fighter Tribute book... I also think I'm going to be bringing some old Energon books for you to sign, lol- if I can get them. Or maybe get you to resign the Bumblebee picture you drew for me that still kicks incredible ass.

I'm not giving you the gawd-danged puppy until you give ME back my parrot! I know you make an awesome pirate, but you're filling him with CARBS, man!
Jangles remains in my custody until we trade off.

Oh. And I renamed Jangles to Gabble Fiddles.

i've already commited to the pirate thing. chopped off my right leg too and replaced it with a peg. (that's my GOOD leg btw) so the parrot (whom i've named talky McFiddlebottom) is a staple in my whole gettup!

:( McFiddleBottom? That's such a cool name that now I HAVE to give you your puppy back so he can join your Pirate ensemble.
You sir, have won. DAMN you and those sexy eyes and that beautiful "arr" you rumble out in your pirate-like jolliness.
