My Adoring Public by kevinbolk My Adoring Public by kevinbolk
Read the rest of "I'm My Own Mascot" here: [link]

Yup, I got to host my first "About me" panel at Ohayocon this past weekend. You can see the actual crowd here: [link]

So yeah, the crowd wasn't *quite* as tiny as I depict in the comic. My joy, however, was not exaggerated in the slightest since I was actually planning to spend the panel alone watching my VHS copies of Dinosaucers while weeping softly into my energy drink. Wait....people actually wanted to hear about my work? Happy day! And as the panel went on, more and more fans began to fill the room.

Turns out they were there for the Kingdom Hearts panel following mine, but still...PEOPLE!!

Oh, and quick plug...if you think the young lady in the comic (and with the pink hair in the photo) is cool, you can check out her dA gallery here: [link] Her name is Cutie, and she is very nice.

kevinbolk: So, any questions?

Convention Goer #1: In how many episodes of "Lucky Star" is Shelley Winters gonna show up?

kevinbolk:...any other questions?

Convention Goer #2: If Shelley Winters grows to giant size through science and not magic, how come her clothes grow with her?

kevinbolk: I have no idea...look, why don't you just ask John Allison?

*pan to an empty chair labelled "John Allison"*

kevinbolk: OK look, anybody who is not a fan of "Lucky Star", just leave the room right now!

*the few people actually in the room leave, until only a middle aged fat guy in the very back of the room is left*

Middle-Aged Fat Guy: Your comic is one of the most popular ever...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

*the middle-aged fat guy leaves*

(kudos if you know which awesome cartoon series I'm referencing with this)

Wow, Florida might be a bit of a stretch. Best way to do that is to ask all your friends to email the convention or poke their forums and (politely) demand they invite me as a guest. If you tell them about Weegie, my fanbase, and that I do "how to draw" panels, it might seal the deal. Good luck! :D
