You know, when you head out to events and things… Sometimes you just never know what to expect. Even when things are relatively calm and easy, something gets messed up. You just can’t help it. It’s happened to all of us at some point or another.
Suddenly Susan and I went to the Walking Dead panel and while we had a blast, things didn’t go as smoothly for Susan.
I’ll let you read her tale below. Personally, I think her Andrew Lincoln photo looks fine!
Let me know what you guys think?!?
Sometimes with this hobby even when you win, you lose. I’m not complaining, as The Walking Dead panel was great and I wouldn’t have missed it for anything. I’m just disappointed with the way things turned out.
At WonderCon a few weeks ago, I bought this amazing print of Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, with the hopes of one day getting it signed. Who knew that day would come so quickly?
As Mike said, it was relatively calm and easy and I was the second autograph Andrew signed.
However, I stupidly grabbed the wrong pen and used a brand new, unprepped Sharpie.
Before the comments roll in, I know, I messed up. So, the signature is ok in the right lighting, but if framed, you wouldn’t even see it. To add insult to injury, when I later removed the securing tape, one small corner of the print was torn off. Blast!
To add further insult to injury, my photo op is crap. My camera’s flash didn’t go off. I didn’t realize how badly out of focus it was until after it was too late to ask for a re-take.
I did get a nice signature from Norman Reedus on my EW magazine (love that he used the number 2 instead of ‘to’ Susan).
I also added Sonequa Martin-Green and Michael Cudlitz to my poster from last year. All in all not bad; I just wish my print looked a little better.
