Drawing with Comic Artists! #alaac14

Yup, I totally got to draw an awesome comic with some of my favorite comic artists. Then they signed it and took a picture with me. For real! What great way to finish off my long first day at 1

The Comics Quickfire event was like a game show with audience participation and super talented and funny comics combined.  My challenge was to do a “jam drawing” with Sean O’Neill (Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune), Nathan Hale (Hazardous Tales series), and Jake Parker (Missile Mouse).  Our drawing needed to feature various things suggested by the audience (a chicken, a tornado, some mashed potatoes…).  Needless to say, my porcupine and boot were not the best contributions to the picture!
