Post-AnthroCon 2009

The dealer’s room is closed, we’re chilling before dinner with SofaWolf (The absolutely great people who publish the Digger Collections), and the con is close to over.

So how was it?

From our perspective, it was GREAT. We had a lot of fun, sold a lot of stuff, and hung out with a lot of cool people. Highlights :

  • Sushi Kim – Friday for Sushi, Saturday for Korean. Both just WOW.
  • Hanging out and partying with Miss Monster! Go check out her stuff! She’s awesome!
  • Seeing Nightfox A.K.A. the “Jagermeister Man” once again.
  • Meeting LizardBeth (Go buy her Comic Collection!)
  • Breakfast with Maggock and her Mom for the second year in a row
  • Winning paintings of a clockwork hummingbird, a steampunk octopus, and a kookaburra, as well as an original sketch from InnerSpace (Go read it! It’s awesome) in the auction.
  • Hanging out with SpunkyWolf, Dave and Diane Stein, Tango, Rob Balder, and a whole lot of people I’m forgetting or don’t have links for…

We’ll be driving back (not tonight, Oh shit no, we’re too tired for THAT), and overall, this con has made up for the last two in terms of money, fan relations, and overall fun. I’m sure Ursula will have more to say on it once we get home.

And to everyone who stopped by and said hi, it was great meeting everyone! See you at the next one!

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
