From the time we got off the plane in New York until we got on the plane to come home, it was non-stop on-the-go, kung fu action. Sans the actual Kung Fu.
Thursday we trekked about town from 9am until well after midnight. Times Square, Wall St, Ground Zero, Statue of Liberty, Museum of Modern Art, and then restaurants and pubs. The show was busy, and we talked to quite a few people. It was great to meet you all.
I spent the whole show working on commissions. Randy had his portable scanner and I was able to scan a few. Unfortunately I didn’t think to get all of them, especially the ones on Friday. Here are a few I did over the course of the show. Click on the thumbnails for a better view.
Saturday night it turned out that all the guys in the group we were with ended up having various plans, so Danny and I (after a phone call to one of his NY friends for recommendations) headed to Soho for dinner. I highly recommend Kelley & Pings. Excellent. From there we headed into Greenwich Village where we stayed until almost 1am before heading back to Midtown. Or trying to. We ended up on the wrong subway.
I thought the ride seemed a little long, but we were both distracted by the guy with a guitar who had all the buzzed Yankees fans singing along. It was very festive in our car.
After the concert, Danny struck up a conversation with the group heading back from the Yankees game and found out we were in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan. They were very nice and helped point us back in the right direction…on the right train.
So we headed back, only to discover that the train’s last stop, at 2am, was nowhere near our hotel. When we emerged from the Subway we were at the bottom tip of the island at the Ferry. We had to find a cab to get the rest of the way back. Probably the 2nd craziest cab ride I’ve had in New York. I only thought we were going to die once.
Now home, I’m sleep deprived, but energized to get back to work. Deputy Witch, our new graphic novel, begins uploading next Tuesday, the 19th. I’ve also got a few commissions to catch up on in the next couple of weeks.
NYCC might be my new favorite show.
