Emerald City + Shop Talk

Caleb & I showed up at the Emerald City Comicon this morning, and I broke in the HDV cam with some crowd and vendor shots for Brian & Co. to use in their advertising next year. Also took some footage of Steve doing caricatures. I want to assemble a mini-commercial for his website. It's really great being associated with the great guys who run the show, because I get to watch a friend's project blossom and become a success from within. The show has grown enormously in its scant four years, and Brian, George and Jim (and a small army of partners in crime) deserve all the success this show has coming. And there is more to come - mark my words.

We shmoozed from 9:30 until about 12:30 and then headed back to the homestead. Gavin took Tyler to Ice Age 2, and Caleb and I hung out with Heath Ward, whom I declare forthwith to be The Nicest Dude in Indie Film in Seattle. We talked shop, and discussed how we'd like to do the Ordinary Angels project. He's got some great ideas, and has some great motivating energy. He wants to be attached to the project, and I am looking forward to the collaboration.

Well, the clocks get set forward tonight, so I'm gonna try to put the kids to bed. TTFN.

Todd, do you have a box a The Comic Stop? Just curious how often you get a chance to visit with Brian and George.

No, I don't have a box up there. I don't get up to the shop nearly as much as I'd like. But Brian and George are awesome guys (and Jim too, when he's in town), and the whole environment feels like home.

Hey Todd,

It's your ol' pal Kristofer Straub. I had plans to head up to Emerald City, but they fell through. How is things? Drop me a line.
