Dallas Comic Con & Stan Lee, AGAIN!

Above-Average-Cons-Dallas-Comic-Con-with-stan-leeI’m so behind in everything. I’m making new artwork, printing artwork for Heroes Con and trying to keep you all updated on what I’m doing. Sorry that I suck at it. I wish this was my full time job, but these darn bills require me to work for money. It sucks! (Heroes Con is in two days by the way.)

Anyway, two weekends ago I attended the Dallas Comic Con! Boy, oh boy it was fun. The best part was I got to see my two very best friends in the whole wide world, Dan and the better Dan. You guess which Dan is the better one.I’ve known them both since we were teenagers.
Dan P. (The one on the left.) is shown here prominently displaying his crotch to the world. (He’s so proud.) I’ve known him since middle school. Dan L. (The one on the right.) looks crazy while I look as if I’m dreaming of Kate Upton. I’ve known him since high school. I’m not related to either of them, but they are like my brothers and this convention was a happy excuse for us to get together for the first time in roughly five years. I wish I took more pictures of us. Continue reading “Dallas Comic Con & Stan Lee, AGAIN!”

Stan Lee is… Asleep?

Above-Average-MegaCon-034Saturday at MegaCon 2015  my gorgeous girlfriend was nice enough to buy me a ticket to get my picture taken with Stan “The Man” Lee. I was really hoping to just run into him at Red Robbins, but that just didn’t seem to be happening.

Well I kind of read into this opportunity as a chance to actually meet and greet Stan, so I started freaking out about giving him something. The man is partially responsible for my childhood. Also most of the things that have entertained and inspired me for my entire life. I felt obliged to give the man something. I couldn’t just give him a print. Stan deserves original art, so I drew this, that morning.

MegaCon 2015 – The Story

Above-Average-Mega-Convention-LogoThis year MegaCon 2015 was the bomb. It has been less bomb like in the past, but I loved this one. My girlfriend and I drove down to Orlando, Florida Thursday afternoon. After about 7 hours and one speeding ticket. We got there about 1:00 am Above-Average-MegaCon-001Friday morning. I had some Hotels.com rewards points so I was able to stay at a pretty nice hotel. We checked in, slept and then did what I do whenever I leave Atlanta, GA. We ate at Denny’s.
(The greatest restaurant ever.) If you don’t like Denny’s then MOVE BACK TO RUSSIA!

Amanda Conner, Has My BRACELET!

imgresA while ago I went to New York. (“Concrete jungle where dreams are made of There’s nothing you can’t do” – Alicia Keys) While there I was lucky enough to attend the Colbert Report. I had to wait outside for a long time, but I got into the show. While there I was also lucky enough to pick up a Wrist Strong Bracelet from Stephen and get to shake his hand.
(I love meeting people I admire.)

FX International Convention – I Miss You

Above-Average-FX-Convention-2009-PosterThe very first comic book convention/Pop Culture Convention I ever sat at as an artist was FX International. It was held at some fairgrounds in central Florida and Hurley from Lost was there. It was just the greatest thing I ever experienced and I’ve been hopelessly addicted to attending them ever since.
