2008 Vacation – Day 9 (Mitsuwa & Padres)

The plan for today was to go to the Mitsuwa Marketplace for lunch and shopping and then a Padres game in the evening. I found Mitsuwa a few years back when I was just looking for a Japanese bookstore in town, and ended up finding a place that I have to go at least once […]

Vacation 2008 – Day 8.5 (EARTHQUAKE!)

Apparently, I survived my first earthquake. According to this Yahoo News report:

********** The strongest earthquake to strike a populated area of Southern California in more than a decade rattled windows and chandeliers, made buildings sway and sent people running into the streets on Tuesday. But there were no immediate reports of serious injuries or […]

Vacation 2008 – Day 8 (San Diego Zoo)

We were talking about going to the San Diego Zoo the other night and Becky’s grandma was saying that she hadn’t been in a long time because it is difficult for her to get around now. I told her that we had three guys that would be willing to push her around in a wheel […]

2008 Vacation – Day 7 (Wild Animal Park)

Today, we decided to go to the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Here are the photos…


Vacation 2008 – Comic Con Art

Here’s an interim update post of the original commissions/sketches that I was able to pick up during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately, they’re small, digital pics and not nice, big, flatbed scans, but I’ll get those done once we’re back in Austin. For now, this will have to do. I’ll start with one […]

Vacation 2008 – Day 6 (Last Con Day)

Only a few things on my to-do list today, so I wanted to try to get in and get out if possible. It’s been a long few days at the convention and it’s pretty much worn me out. First on my list was to find Cliff Chiang and get my set of Creeper comics autographed […]

2008 Vacation – Day 5 (G4 Con +…)

Today at the con my main goal was to get there early enough to get in line to get in the line to draw a ticket to try to get autographs of the G4 Attack of the Show folks. Last year it was just a stand-in-line-and-wait kind of deal, but I guess they are getting […]

Vacation 2008 – Day 4 (More Con)

It’s late again and this time I’m really going to try to limit my text and not have too much description. I had a request for more photos of toys, so I tried to shoot as much toy related stuff as I saw that I found interesting. There’s more that missed the cut because of […]

2008 Vacation – Day 3 (1st Con)

It’s really late…after midnight here which means after 2am central. I’m still not fully adjusted, so I’m getting tired. Have to get up early for another day at Comic Con. Tonight’s post will be mostly photos with very little text, but there are LOTS of photos, so I wanted to do this now instead of […]

Vacation 2008 – Day 2 (Con Preview)

Today was Preview Night at Comic Con. If you have a full con pass, you get the opportunity to get your pass a day early and they also open the doors for 3 bonus hours so that you can preview all of the excitement before everyone else. Basically, an extra 3 hours of insanity before […]
