So I dont really want to bore with a long drawn out explanation of a series of good and bad events so I'll just summarize the show.

Unfortunately, though I was able to make back the table and the hotel room for the three days, I did still lose money on the show. Yes, I was able to reach new people with my art, but the type of crowds that attend horror conventions are a lot different from the kind that attend comic book cons.

I dont want to come off like I had a bad time. Actually it was far from it. Our table was right next to a really nice lady that worked on the haunted house attractions for Universal Studios and our other neighbor, Joel Robinson, whom was very nice too. I got to see Jake Busey come by and even had Tom Savini mistaken my graphic novel, RIPPED with some new book Stephen King is making about time travel. :) Had the Fine Print Shoppe, which is a local screen printing place in Orlando, ask me and a few other artists to come up with a design that they could have people buy and get screen printed right on the spot, end up selling eleven of my shirt design! While also getting the Chiodo Brothers to sign my Killer Klowns print AND having Grant Cramer (Mike from Killer Klowns From Outer Space) and Suzanne Snyder (Debbie from Killer Klowns) stop by my table at the end of the show and both pick one up was def. a surprise!

So would I ever setup again at SPOOKY EMPIRE? Maybe. (Hopefully the next time it wont be raining all weekend)

Would I ever attend the show just to go? Absolutely!

It was def. a fun show. Yes, the crowds were different, but everyone there were still die hard fans that loved horror. Overall I give the show a B-

Here are some photos from the show and a few of the sketches I did while there.
