A Look Back At Better Times: #NYCC 2011

This is my last week of classes for this semester, also known as hell week full of cramming for exams and doing pointless projects. In lue of this misery I figured I could take a moment to reminisce on better times: Like Comic Con!

The artist alley was near empty with no lines for all the incredible people that made appearances. Simone Legno, the Italian creator and artist of the phenomenon Tokidoki, was all by himself at the company's booth. Being a huge fan of his Marvel work I kinda fangirled out, asking him to draw me a sketch of his Captain America. Legno was more than happy to (even saying that Cap was his favorite one) which caused me to go buy the same t-shirt he was wearing.
