Here's a few shots from our recent trip to ArmadilloCon in Austin, Texas. Christina and I were invited to be this year's artist guest of honor and special guest artist respectively. You can read more about it in the previous blog post right here.

Needless to say it was a weekend packed full of great conversation, panels, artwork, lectures, late night socializing, and of course BBQ. Lots and lots of BBQ! This particular convention was a bit different for us being as we were invited guests and didn't have to man a booth the entire weekend. It made for a wonderfully relaxed fun time where we could interact with attendees and fans alike in a very friendly casual atmosphere. Below is a list of people I'd like to thank for making the weekend so great.

Joe McKinney
Chuck Siros
Willie Siros
Joe Monti
Sara Felix
Jennifer Juday
Scott Zrubek
Rondinella Olsen
Karen Meschke
John Picacio

Such awesome people and an outstanding show.  Thanks for making us feel so welcome!  We had a lot of fun and hope to make it back to Texas again real soon.
