Another year, another MondoCon! Fourth year volunteering. Met some great people this year, and since my walls are full, managed to only buy two posters. Definitely got some other swag though, including this great shirt and print by John Vogl of The Bungaloo. Check out the detail on the eyes; just a touch of white. I think I own every iteration of that viking pin on the left, too (old print on a shirt, new print on a shirt, pin… it’s so good, can’t get enough). Speaking of pins, I bought a lot this year… They’re back in vogue, and out in full force.

Had a great time visiting with some of my other favorite artists and designers: Erica Williams, Kevin Tong, Aaron Draplin, the couple behind Landland, etc.

Small story behind one of the posters I bought… Kevin Tong recently came out with an amazing Pixies print. I told myself I wouldn’t buy it unless an Art Print came out (no text), more to prevent me from buying another poster I don’t need than anything else. So guess what he did; fans in his Facebook group rallied, and one guy (who apparently does this fairly often) politely requested an AP. And he did it, and released it at MondoCon!

Detail shot of the beautiful poster below. The glass shards from the car are clear varnish, so they glint in the light.
