Comic-Con 2011: Saturday

Alien egg. This needs to be the centerpiece of my living room. 

"You think this A on my forehead stands for France?"

Daenerys from Game of Thrones

With Kato

Kid Robot

Doing some Kid Robot art on the spot.

Dr. Who Tardis

Pretty much the coolest Venom I've ever seen.

I ran into two of my pop culture idols on the floor: Whitney Matheson from Pop Candy and James Sime from Isotope Comics (who I met when I visited his awesome comic store in San Francisco earlier this month). Hung out with these peeps later at the Pop Candy party.

Leave it to Comic-Con to have the best street food, on top of everything else. Had a poached lobster and grilled cheese sandwich from the South Park food trailer park.

Conan O'Brien Lego Superhero

Adult Swim Party

Venture Brothers. Shortly after this photo was taken I rubbed shoulders with the creator of the show.

From a bar in downtown SD that was transformed into Fangtasia.

Comic-Con 2011: Thursday

A museum dedicated to the superhero awesomeness of Conan O'Brien.

Went to a party hosted by Robert Rodriguez. Hung out with Grant Morrison and Paul Shearer, and met some industry peeps. When we walked in, I could not stop freaking out. The place was garnished with original Frank Frazetta paintings. Unreal. Open bar. Fantastic catering. Best. Night. Ever.

Downtown SD

Making friends at Robert Rodriguez's party.

Biggest surprise of the day? Pee Wee Herman showed up and he was exceptionally charismatic and witty. He played with audience members and made me laugh pretty hard. One audience member said, "I'm a big fan of yours" and Pee Wee promptly responded, "Oh, congratulations!" Stuff like that made me like him.

Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried promoting In Time. Honestly, I couldn't tell much about the quality of this film from the footage that was shown. Looked like a mediocre sci-fi flick. Might be worth going to the theater for a bucket of popcorn. It takes place in the future and everyone has a set amount of time that they can live, and that time is kept track digitally on their arms. Yadda yadda yadda.
