Hi. I've been a fan of your stuff for awhile now and i was wondering if this book will be available at House of Secrets like the last 2? I don't know if you know Paul & Eric or if they've picked your books up at the con before and thats how they got them. Anywho, I definitely want one, but unfortunately can't make it to the con.

I can't make it to the con either, but I am a big fan of your blog. I also like the way you recommend other blogs to look at, I have gotten a lot of favorites from your list. Hope that you have a chance to look at my blog too. I haven't been bloging long but please take a look anyways and tell me what you think. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Good luck at the con!

Great books.

Hey John!~

It was great to meet you at the Comic Con! I am so inspired by all three of your books that I bought! Amazing books!!!


Chris said...

You are definitely one of the nicest people I met in San Diego (if not "the" nicest). Humble and encouraging, you impress me as an artist and as a person. Always a fan, -Chris

FerdinandKreozot said...

I keep on comming back, and you keep on inspiring me.
I wish I could have been at the con.
Cheers to your work,

Kind regards,

It was absolutely wonderful to meet you at Comic Con.

Thank you so much for the nice note you wrote my friend Noel in the book I picked up for him.

Your work is truly beautiful, and amazing.
Thank you so much again.

Thanks for the booth mention, John..I *barely* had time to do any shopping at all...I think of all the wonderful things I can't peruse cuz I gotta work the booth...but Sean brought back some copies of your sketchbooks so I can peek at those at least!!! Hope you had a great show.


Joe_O said...

Nice to see you at the Con, John. Are you thinking of collecting your sketchbooks into a hardbound book? I'd totally buy that.

ggsoulsister said...

Thanks for remembering me. I appreciate that. Thank you for your comments on my portfolio at the Comic Con.

I was hoping to make a book of my art and wondering how do I go about that.

Josh Parpan said...

Hey John, thanks so much for including us on your list! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you in San Diego, but I did get a hold of one of your amazing books at Stuart Ng's!
I hope you had a great show this

Bobby Chiu said...

We had a wonderful time at the con and really enjoyed your book John! Love all your Bits & Pieces!

Dave James said...


Great seeing you at the con. Your stuff is great.

See you next year.


boob said...

The con is over! whew! It was a fun time for sure. Thanks for the link by the way - just wish we had our books in time *sigh* The printer called me Tuesday to say they're all done...yay?

But since I was free from the table, I was able to get around more this year. And that's the fun of it really - meeting and talking to all the artists.

I hope we can keep this rolling and see ya again next year!

It can't work as a matter of fact, that is what I consider.
