Back from Vacation..Cactuscon

Back in Philly from our trip and today was the usual busy day back after traveling. Tons of mail to go through, mostly junk mail, phone calls to catch up on, doggies to fetch home from the kennel. I also had to get ready to teach tomorrow and get back to work on my storyboard for Growing up Creepie which airs on the Discovery Channel. I have to thank Matt and Joe for putting on a swell con and being such graciuous and hospitiable hosts for that weekend. I understand the show was a bigger than expected success and judging from the crowd on saturday everyone seemed happy. It was the biggest show in the Phoenix area in a long while and they already have the next show in January coming up fast. Man, there was a ton of people dressed up all weekend. I snapped a few pics.

Echo and I had a good time and it was great to get to hang with Terry Austin, Ron (Saved a worm) Garney, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, Justin Grey, the Dude and more. I will be c atching back up on blogging this week and I'll have more pics as will Echo over on her blog.

the con had a nice hospitality suite which was always full of Star Wars characters dressing up or down
