This past weekend, Anushika and I attended the Heroes and Villains FanFest in San Jose. They run a bunch of cons throughout the year and if you have the opportunity to go, you should. They are low key and intimate with a slew of great guests!
I was able to finish my season one Walking Dead poster by getting Chandler Riggs’ autograph. I had brought it with me to another con in Cleveland where he had to cancel due to illness. I’m happy that it’s finally done and it looks great. That one blank panel was haunting me for years!
I’m going to call my Arrow poster done as well. I completed it by getting Caity Lotz’s autograph. There are a few more minor characters that were in attendance, but there’s not enough room left on the poster itself. If I do add anyone else, it would be Emily Bett Rickards who plays Felicity Smoak, should she be at a nearby con.
I also got Brandon Routh to sign my Superman Returns poster. I’ve had it framed and on the wall for 10 years so I figured, why not? I had a frame shop open it up for me and took the dry mounted poster with me. Brandon is such a sweetheart – truly kind and down to earth. He signed it perfectly in silver on the cape.
I got Stephen Amell to sign a very cool, card stock arrow poster I’ve been holding onto. It looks great in gold pen and he added the signature arrow below it.
Next we had a few professional photo ops. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have physical contact with Stephen and Brandon (who actually remembered my name for the signing a few hours earlier) and Shika and I got a photo together with Matt Ryan of Constantine.
All in all it was a great convention in a fun city. I’ll see you at the next one!
