Thanks for visiting!

SDCC was pretty cool, but more cool that that was the people I was with.

For the first time I met both Espen and Chamba as they came down to San Diego for the show. I was happy that some of you showed up!

Next year I would really like for UDON to go to Otakon in Baltimore MD, but we will have to see how thta worksout since it is very close to SDCC in timing and on totally opposite sides of the US.

The next con i will be at is in a very short 3- 4 weeks. The Penny Arcade Expo will take place in Seattle.

I have been trapped working on projects over the last while and sicne each cons takes about a week away I am trying hard to keep up. That also means that I cant show much of it yet, but I will have something for my 200k.

Finger is almost healed, but i have lost feeling on the tip of it, it just feels like callous now.

Asalaamalaikum = Peace be upon you!

Seems like you sliced a nerve, give it a few months and it'll be back to normal, well that is, if we can consider you human.

Hopefully you can heal quicker and get back to feeling 100% A-Okay so you can post more awe-inspiring art.

BTW, you see the Cammy with Bison's (or Vega's) hat.

Eh? That finger incident still lingers? :O Damn that was a bad cut.

You said the next con in Seattle is in a few weeks. Does that mean you guys arent doing Fan Expo? :fear:

I must say, I've never been to SDCC, but at some point I should. Yes! You guys need to get over to our side of the states!

Glad to hear the finger is doing better. I wouldn't expect the feeling to come back any time soon, though....

Good luck balancing work and conventions!

Yup Omar. Otakon was once again, a bog success this year. However, for some strange reason, it wasn't as big as last year but still pretty huge.

Hey... I don't know if you know Matt... but you drew or colored up his "Romanya" character. It's in your gallery (in case the con made you lose your memory, hehehe).
I had the pleasure of doing a commission for that character as well.

Anywho, glad you had a great time at SDCC. I watched the coverage on G4TV. Looked great. I'll be their next year with a booth too. Also, if you guys hit up Otakon, I will be their as usual. So I will drop by the UDON tables. I missed you guys this year.... sitting at my A-Alley table stairing at others wondering why you guys didn't show. But I guess like you said... SDCC was too close to set up for it.

I did, however, meet Kevin Yan :iconyanimator: and the Canada team at Otakon. We got along great. Traded art at the end too.

Well take care and get that work done bro.

Asalaamalaikum
Pete-

Yeah, Matt there is my home-boy. The pick Omar did of Romanya totally kicked ass, as did the one he showed me you did for him at Otakon!

But yeah, we here in MD would certainly like to see the Udon crew come our way.

This year, the artist alley staff really had their game faces on, so I'm expecting the same for next year.

It stinks that I couldn't see you or the others from UDON at SDCC. I was planning to go on Sunday, but lo and behold when I checked the site on Friday...SOLD OUT!!! First time in history it said. Looks like I'll have to reserve for next year, cause I ain't missing you guys again.

Oh and I heard you guys had The King of Mexico with you as well as the Duke of Socks.

I greeted the Grand Duke of Socks, but i did not have time to see the King.

It was pretty cool, I must say i like the anime cons a lot better though.

Heh, dang. I was really hoping to go to that con as well as SDCC. Ah well. I hope you aren't overworked, as you seemed to be working quite hard on commissions at the convention, including mine, which turned out great by the way! It seems your finger hasn't hindered your abilities much, if at all. Keep up the great work, but try to get some rest too!
