Halloween Wrap-Up

I spent Saturday afternoon with my friends in the Comicsmiths' Guild, over at Lightning Comics in Coeur d'Alene, sketching for customers as part of their Halloween weekend event. We had a good time, and had a pretty decent turn-out of people.

I wasn't very good about taking pictures this time around, but did make sure to get a shot of this one, which I was pretty happy with. It was actually for the daughter of one of the other local artists who was there drawing - Joshua Covey, who drew the cover for the new (second) Guild Anthology comic.

We also had the first copies of the new Anthology for sale at the sketch event, fresh from the printers. They're available for sale locally for now - you can of course order them from the Guild and we can figure out shipping costs to your location. We should have them available on IndyPlanet soon as well, along with the first Anthology.

We stayed home for Halloween (had new TV to watch, after all), and actually had a fair amount of trick-or-treaters this time around. We've lived in these apartments for 6 years, and have never had a huge turn-out, which always seemed odd considering we're smack in the middle of a big residential area with a bunch of other apartment complexes. And I know there are plenty of kids living around here. But this year we may have had the same amount as the last 2 or 3 years combined. Maybe the weather was just nicer?

And the library lets their employees dress up for Halloween, so Jenny went as a pirate!
