... thank you very very very much for supporting "Artist Alley" (AND thank you very much for the better chairs 'cause the old ones were Inquisition-style-torture devices!!!) .... the MASSIVE success of SDCC has made it super-mainstream and with all the good comes the (inevitable) bad ... BUT without the Artists working with simple paper and pencil (or it's digital twin) there would be no gazillion dollar franchises paying for gazillion dollar booths.
So thank you DA!!! "Artist Alley" is STILL and will always be SDCC's beating-heart!
p.s. ... oh yeah! the big screens are pretty cool too!!!
