This Sunday I went to the Minnesota State Fair grounds to enjoy a nice time at MicroCon, a small, yearly, spring comic book convention. As always, it was a great time to talk with artists and see what's going on in their lives, and their art.
I always make a point to talk with some of my favorite artists at the conventions. These guys (and girl) are not only great artists and story tellers, but they are excellent people as well. Very rarely do I feel like being a fanboy about something, but it's just so exciting to me to be able to talk with a section of the usually inaccessible people who bring me a lot of joy. Here's a list of my favorite comic book artists who frequent Minnesota cons:
Sam Hiti (also check out Fist-A-Cuffs)
Becky Grutzik & Matt Wendt
Zander Cannon, Kevin Cannon & Shad Petosky
If you've got any interest in comics (or art, for that matter), and haven't been to a comic book convention before, stop by the next con this fall. It's good way to go out and experience new art and ideas.
