Some ECCC Hi (and Lo) Lights
As documented on Facebook, I wound up doing a slew of pet portraits--never with just a single dog or cat as the subject, but with at least two mammals interacting. I learned that pet owners are, without exception, a much harder audience than any parent or "lover" asking me to produce a likeness of their loved one(s). I was sweating bullets!! And I'm not even good at quadrapeds. Definitely, definitely need to "bone up" on my dogs and cats before going to another 'Con...that, or just refuse to do any more animal portraits!
World's worst Venom drawing (I wanted to impress with my superhero skills, so I asked the guy his favorite--he said Venom. "Venom!" I think "He's so EASY!" Pfft. Then I pull this dogbone....):
We had a great time! In a day or two I'll write more on some practical thoughts on ECCC like having a table, etc...
