Comic Salon

So this weekend I went to the Comic Salon in Erlangen.  Third time in my life that I have actually been to an event like this, I plan on going more often.

This is a part of the massive "shopping centre". Books stores everywhere trying to sell you their comics.  It´s really nice, though I would have liked to have been able to do more than just shop for comic books.  There were a few conferences and artist signings which were cool and tere were also workshops about the town, but none that took my fancy.

 Then we had lunch and while sitting down and eating, a big group of Capoeristas came along and started playing instruments and doing capoeira in the middle of the street. I managed to get a few doodles done from watching before the crowd got too big to see anything.
 After Lunch, Christoph, JuanP, Eva and myself went to a conference on this Danish artist that works on the Donald Duck comics in Norway if I remember correctly. It was interesting, though we all got a bit lost mid way through when he went into detail about the sciences...Dinosaur DNA and Astronomy... The children loved the sketches at the end that he created on the giant pages folded over the white board. I actually found them amusing too and was impressed that he managed to get them done in front of a crowd shouting their favourite characters at him, while coming up with nice ideas within a very limited time.
 I tried out one of the new display tablets using one of their apint programs. I have to say, I prefer my Cintiq a lot and drawing with your finger can be very tough hehehe. I´m sure if I knew how to use the program fully and had a pen to draw with it would have been a better experience.
 Artist gallery of Walt Kelly and his work on Pogo.
 At first I looked to be a 10 euro note for the price of 59 €
