San Diego was a blast. I rubbed shoulders with some webcomic giants, met one of the greatest living animators, saw some footage from next year's Pixar film, and saw the Rifftrax boys mock Plan 9 From Outer Space live on stage. Check out all my photos at my Flickr stream.

Pictured above is the mass of books I picked up at the con this year. I urge you to check these out if you like comics and animation: Chainsawsuit and Starslip Crisis Volume 2 by Kris Straub, Evil Inc. Annual Report Vol. 1 by Brad Guigar, The Case of the Mummy's Gold by Penny Arcade, CAKE Anthology by the members of Art Jumble, Who is Rocket Johnson by various Disney artists, Sheldon Volume 2 The Good, the Bad, and the Pugly by Dave Kellett, Save the Babies by Charlie Bink, How to Make Webcomics by the Halfpixel boys, Beards of Our Forefathers by David Malki!, Kiskaloo by Chris Sanders and Character Animation Crash Course by Eric Goldberg. It may seem excessive, but I wait all year for a chance to buy these books directly from their creators in San Diego. Lots of inspiration!
