Michuri Morikawa, Cy Dethan, Andrew Croskey, Valia Kapadai and me.
Insomnia's newest launch titles, Burke and Hare and Buskers, got off to a great start and Insomnia's table had a crowd around it the whole weekend. Also on display at the stand was Ferret's massive Cancertown quilt, which I got to see for the first time. I think you can get a sense of scale in the photo below:

Special thanks goes to Valia Kapadai who painted me this beautiful rendition of some Cancertown characters (and let me borrow the above photos for this blog):

Check out valia's Deviant art page to see all the other fantastic paintings she produced for her Insomnia buddies.
Other things that happened:
- I finally met in Peter Forbes in person
- I found some really interesting brush pens via Simon Wyatt, who generously gave me one to take home and try.
- Talked a little about the Cancertown sequel with Cy and Nic.
For a more revolutionary take on the the weekend, check out Cy's fantasy styled role playing blog post, which is quite possibly the best con report ever.
I've a lot of drawing on the table these days, which I'm happy about, so I'm going to be cutting the blog back to once a week, which will probably be every Wednesday night. Hopefully some new art and less rambling by then...
