Chicago Comic-Con Sketches

Whew! I'm still recovering from the convention. We left Friday afternoon and returned late Sunday evening.

My favorite part of the trip was meeting artist Katie Cook. Adam purchased two of Katie's famous mini watercolors. One of Sauron, one of Gandalf.

I would love to bring my catnip toys to one of these conventions, but I can't imagine it would be easy to make back the $300 weekend table fee. Maybe I could talk another Etsian into sharing a table and splitting the table fee next year...

  2. Oh, whatever, they're both LOTR villains.
