I adore LFG and have each volume of the printed. Volumes 2, 3, and 4 are autographed as I was in the first 1000 to pre-order but didn't get that with Volume 1 so was super excited to have them sign it for me.
Lar did a panel on Saturday on Adult Orgami that Steven would have enjoyed but since we attended on Sunday, Steven asked him to fold something for him real quick. He received this with the comment "You have to do your own tassels" from Lar.
After that we headed to what ended up being the only panel we attended that day. We skipped the one planned for midday and the one at the end of the day ended up being cancelled, unfortunately. The one we did attend was Con Horror Stories with Katie Cook and Jim Zub. Both were hilarious and shared stories that had us holding our sides. I think the best part was half their stories were of themselves being the horror story. It was a fantastic way to start the day.
We stalked Katie back to her booth to see if she had any copies of her Gronk book left. She had one left, the display one, so yay me! She had already autographed it but I got a little Gronk sketch to go with it. Katie was also wonderful and hilarious. Here's Katie working on one of her adorable little mini paintings she sells.
One of Steven's latest addictions is Weregeek. He has caught up from the beginning way faster than I have since I usually only remember to read it with him around. He ADORES it however and was very excited to see the creator at the con. Alina was a total sweetheart as he was all sorts of *SQUEE* with her. He actually had her do a personal sketch of one of his D&D moments of awesome.
While she sketched and he talked, I saw this gal walking by and snagged a quick shot of her awesome dress. She whipped that adorable little shield out of her bag and struck a pose like a con pro. And yes, she made the dress herself. Its all Captain America comics.
Here's a very happy Steven with his sketch from Alina.
I went back for this apron, unfortunately he had sold out by that point. I haven't read the comic yet (L.A.W.L.S.) but it's on my list.
The Sweet Tits creator was sharing a booth with probably the greatest experience we had with one of the creators we met that day. Scott of Nerf This was a complete sweetheart and if it wasn't potentially a little creepy I would have sprawled over the table to hug him.
I asked for a quick sketch of his little monster character Monty, and I ended up with an adorably dapper Monty. Scott tried to stop me from tipping him and called me a sweetheart for trying. I ended up dropping it on the table and stepping back so he couldn't give it back. Yup, I'm one sneaky girl.
I have plans for framing my Monty sketch, once I hunt down brown & tan pinstriped paper.
A friend of mine couldn't make the con this year but I asked him quite a few social anxiety laced questions about meeting all these people and he was a lot of help. One of his favorite guys was on our visit list as well so I asked a favor of him on the back of my requested sketch.

The one line we ended up waiting in was for Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots. She was moving the line pretty well while still connecting with her fans. She was sitting in her chair the weirdest way but I didn't remember to snap a picture. I bought a print of one of her watercolors that she signed to me and Steven had her do a sketch of me writing. The print is framed, pretty darn well if I do say so myself, but that will be it's own post once I get a few more framed how I'd like.
Got a Fancy Sketch from Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue. Since I had gotten my first iPhone just a week before, he drew up his Apple addict character inducting me into the fold.
That's about it for the meet and greets. I'll probably post a collective of the sketches, possibly soon. To end on a fun note, I give you Beaker Han Solo.
Because why not?
