still in a somewhat euphoric state, so forgive my incoherence.
we got to Rockwell at around 9 in the morning. we thought that was pretty early as it is.
apparently not. there was this big ass line staring at us when we got out of the cab. some of these people were there since 5 am. o_0
was 135th in line (eep!). and despite signing an average of 3 items for the 134 people in front of me, he was still uber pleasant when i handed him my copy of Stardust.
love him just as much as i love his work now. haha. i’ve never been so fucking starstruck in my life.
pics thanks to noelle, btw. who, in our group of 10 (?) was the only one with a camera. ^__^

This was supposed to be a full-colour, more comprehensive illustration of the first one but I suck at planning and I ran out of space. Haha. Coloured pencils, lined with ink on sketchpad paper.
