Bunny Sketches in The Art of Doug Sneyd

When Doug does a bunny profile sketch in The Art of Doug Sneyd, he starts with a quick prelim in red pencil.



Ken sat and talked with Doug as he personalized The Art of Doug Sneyd.


It's convenient for SDCC attendees to walk across the aisle and buy copies of The Art of Doug Sneyd from Stuart Ng Books.

Stopping by Dark Horse

Doug and I email contacts at Dark Horse throughout the year, but it's at the top of my SDCC photo list to stop by the booth before Preview Night and say "hello" to . . .

Sarah


Within minutes, crowds on Preview Night will swarm Dark Horse to meet authors and buy comics, books and collectibles.

Simon and Valerie Visit Before Preview Night

A highlight of SDCC is visiting with friends.

We met Simon at SDCC in 2007.  He lives in East Sussex, which is about 50 minutes to London's Victoria Station.  Besides seeing him during SDCC, when we're in London, he takes the train in and meets us for lunch.   


We met Valerie Perez at the May 2014 Big Wow Comic Fest in San Jose, California; she's a GREAT Wonder Woman!

Before SDCC Opens to Attendees: Star Wars Booth

Once the doors open to the public and the aisles get crowded, it's impossible to get a close look at booths so we try to set up by 9 a.m. at Big Wow Art (4903) and then take a short walk around the convention center.
