Next time dress up.
Beyond the obvious point of being a nerd there is much to learn from any conference, especially one where they celebrate art of all types. From super specialized art involving only zombies, vampires or popular cartoons such as Adventure Time. Ironically – I don’t read comics. Therefore 80% of what was on display was not for me, especially when you see a comic for $1 and the same for $100 in better shape or a rare misprint.
Here is what is important to me. Bridging the gap between creators (artists, actors) and the consumers (the fans). There is not much difference, in fact everyone there had some hidden or obvious talent. Such as dressing up and getting each detail of their favorite super hero or making super creative candy treats, homemade notebooks or importing awesome toys. Yes, I think that is talent – you could import anything but you choose to bring ONLY what is interesting to the audience.
Wish I could find Giancarlo Esposito talk from the conference – however here is a video of two hobits from Lord of The Rings:
Words that I will always remember spoken by Mr. Esposito
“Be present, always be of service and be joyous!”
