Comic-Con Cuteness!

Today's photos center around things I saw at Comic-Con that were cute.

Kittens and puppies cute, not cute girl cute.


Peas are cute with eyes.
These people had a whole big booth centered around this and other similar "pea" themes.

Remember, remember..
You might have to click on this one to really get the idea, but this was equally cute and incredibly creepy.
On the one hand, you've got a little kid all tuckered out at Comic-Con with his big bag and character mask on.
On the other hand, you've got that creepy V face on a tiny body slumped over in a corner.

Comic-Con Continued!

George Romero was 8 feet tall.
I met George Romero.
He was 20 feet tall.
I'm standing on a series of boxes in this picture.

By now everyone has already heard about this girl, but I mean, I got my picture with her too. She's resting her butt on my shoulder.

Heavy-set Blade looked mean.

I met Superman.
Then I met Superman.
Just let me have this one.

I'm a really big fan of your work.

Shin Chan!

Where could he be?

Do you know what this is?

Gone and on our way.

For those of you who are interested in such things, after quite a drought, tomorrow is a really big DVD day.
The Simpsons Season 10
The Muppet Show Season 2
The Film Crew : Killers From Space
Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show - The Complete Series
Darkwing Duck Season 2
The Tick Vs. Season 2
TMNT (2007 CGI flick)
Disturbia (which Corey assures me was good)
and saving the best for last...
FLASH GORDON (Saviour of the Universe Edition)!
Flash! Ah-ahh!

I think there may well be.

Don't you hate it when you see something that has been made by (what you would assume are) professionals that looks absolutely awful.
I'm looking at a calendar I bought at a store.
This calendar was mass produced, which means it had to go through any number of people for approval before it was released, and yet here it is.
Staring at me.
Ugly as the devil's face.
I see things like this and it makes me wish the people in charge of "things" would call me up before they send whatever it is they make out to an unsuspecting populace.
While it's true that I'm currently employed as a professional graphic designer, I don't have any better design sense now than I did when I was working in retail.
I guess my point (and I'm not sure if I have one) is that the world of mass produced crap would look a lot more pleasing to the eye if I were consulted more often.
