Charticon is this weekend! I'll be there Friday through Sunday. There's a meet and greet patio party Friday night, and I'll be on the con floor the whole weekend, but I'll step away, for just a bit on Friday afternoon, to join the IDW artists panel.
As usual, I'll have prints, sketchbooks, originals, and will be available for commissions during the show. Here's a more comprehensive overview of what I'll have with me:
Also, I'll be participating in the Charticon Charity Auction, supporting A Child's Place. I'm donating a Transformers Prime : Beast Hunters #1 sketch cover:
Also, I saw there's a couple of Rage of the Dinobots series in the auction, winners are welcome to stop by and get them signed as well. I'm hoping it's a massively successful event!
Hope to see you there!
Oh, and one more thing. Charticon, NC + Discovery Shark Week = Sharkticon Week, on the Bad Flip Blog. Every week day I'll post a sketch of a shark themed bot...you know, for fun.
We start with Hammer Strike.

I made it in and had a blast. I have been to BotCon several times and actually preferred this smaller convention. There were great guests and exclusives and the smaller numbers allowed you to get to know people while making the line-ride a bit shorter. The dealer room was also much, much larger than I was expecting.
I am just a run-of-the-mill fan (well, a pretty intense run-of-the-mill fan) but I was still able to hang out with Paul Eiding, Paul's wife (whose name I am forgetting), Hal Rayle, and another fan for around 4 hours at the hotel bar. (I was even serenaded by Hal and his ukelele.) You get to hang out with voice actors occasionally at BotCon, but the event is so large that something like the experience I had would be tough to pull off.
Plus it was about 700$ less expensive given the low registration and hotel costs.

It was nice to have a fan-based Transformers convention close by and not to large like SD ComicCon to be overwhelmed.
The staff did an amazing job organizing this event.
Being able to meet and hang out with the voice actors like Paul Eiding and Hal Rayle was really cool.
The voice actor script reading panel was awesome to experience.
The dealer room had a great display of vendors and artists.
I was hoping to see more fans in costume, but here is a photo of those that appeared in cosplay, lots of fans took pictures and video of us, (I was suited up as Prowl).

Good news everyone! There will be a Charticon 2015!
Quoting their facebook page:
It was a tough call, #CharticonArmy - this year's show was a great success and we've received an overwhelming amount of feedback and support from all of you, asking us to bring back another incredible event!
It's in that vein that we decided to do the next Charticon in 2015: to give our staff time to recuperate from all the planning for this year's show and to give us time to make sure the NEXT Charticon is even BETTER! We have some BIG THINGS planned for Charticon 2015, and we want to do it RIGHT for you guys! ...
"But what will we, the Charticon Army, do in the interim?" you ask! Do not despair! We will continue to keep the Charticon Community going and growing! We will have monthly Transformers meetups and are encouraging TF fans in other cities to do the same! We are rolling out a new #CharticonCommunities project, run by the fans FOR the fans called #CharticonSpotlight !
Down the pipeline, you can expect more planning by the Charticon staffers for 2015 and we'll continue to need YOUR input and support! We'll be organizing fundraising events through Indiegogo/Kickstarters, contacting more artists, voice actors and musicians, getting more vendors and planning more activities to make the next Charticon the BEST Transformers experience!
If you want to help the #CharticonArmy put on the best Charticon show yet in 2015, let us know how you want to help and we'll put you to work! Direct Message us on FB or email us at FeedTheCharticon@gmail.com
See you all again then, hopefully sooner!

One of my closest friends who also lives in Oregon, did all of the artwork in the packets for attendees.
