I’m recovering from this past weekend of volunteering at MondoCon 2015. I was there both Saturday and Sunday as a “lead volunteer,” since I volunteered last year. It basically meant I had a walkie talkie, and was there all day instead of in shifts. And it was bonkers, just like last year. The convention even expanded to have about half the artists across the street in a separate venue.
I didn’t get for myself this year, but I “poster buddied” for some people who couldn’t make it to the event, including nabbing a Mike Mitchell Furiosa (of Mad Max: Fury Road) print for my roommate. I did get a Mike Mitchell skully pin and a glass for myself, though. Love that little guy.
One of my favorite parts was definitely the charity art wall. I didn’t win anything, but it was great fun gathering them up from the artists as they finished them throughout the weekend (some literally right before the raffle). I believe the raffle money went to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
See you there next year!
