New York, New York

Oh lordie...what a time in the Big Apple. Still recovering from the comic con here in New York City. Flew in last Tuesday for some meetings and interviews before the big event, had a great time at the show itself and then hit the Joe Kubert school just yesterday where I had the pleasure of getting to spend time with Adam and Andy Kubert and a chance to meet and check out the work of many of their incredible students.

Much more and a bunch of just very funny pictures from various after con functions. Here's a candid of my new assistant Eddy Choi enjoying a private moment Sunday night at the Irish Rogue (edit: name of bar corrected) in midtown.

More pictures and funnies to come...just need to acquire permission from the various folk depicted in the pix.

An extensive gallery from the convention is also available here

PS - pretty sure the name of the bar is Irish Rogue (W. 44th st)

Finally got to meet Jim, if only briefly at Albert Moy's booth. Also met Carlos and Giuseppe for the first time and Ale' for the second time - it was a great show!

Hey, Jim I saw you at the NY comic-con and you looked busy. Hope you will be back next year.

Assistant to Jim Lee?? Even if that just meant fetching pastries and coffee, that would be an awesome job. Imagine the pointers and freebies you'd acquire in that kind of work environment! My walls would be covered with rough sketches from the office.

I've never really liked the Kuberts' art style. I think Jim could teach them a lot about anatomy, detail, and artistry. Ever consider giving classes, Mr. Lee?

Hey Jim! What was your opinion on the Joe Kubert school?? would it be worthwhile to enroll? i had planned to go there a couple years ago but about 6 months before i left i met Alex Maleev and he told me it would be a waste of time (and money)....?
