    The Amazing Art Balthazar at Mego Meet!

    At the Meet this year, Comic Book Artist Art Balthazar showed up and wowed us yet again with his excellent customs, entertained us with his stories about breaking onto the comic book field and started drawing people who attend the show.

    The drawing he did of me below is better understood when you go to the show because you can find me sleeping virtually anywhere. I'm not 20 years old anymore and the long trip in hot weather combined with the long nights hanging and talking at the Megosuite and the inevitable crash after drinking lots of sugar-filled soda-pop-well something's got to give. I hope everyone else posts their art too. Thanks Again Art!

    This is something I regret not doing. When I went over to Art's table there was a line and I never got a chance to go back. Next year for sure I'm getting one of me and my boys.

    That picture of John is just about the funniest thing I saw at the Meet, I've framed this little portrait of my kids.

    Art is great, huh? You didn't have to drive from Chicago to Wheeling and back with him!

    Just kidding.

    If you look up the definition of "salt of the earth" in the dictionary, there is a picture of Art.

    Art, thanks for the autographed books for my boys. Kyle has already read through Patrick the Wolf Boy.

    To say Art fit in well with the group would be an understatement. You have to realize he was doing some of these pics on a pad as he stood there and talked to others. When he drew John people were passing in front of him and it didn't phase him a bit. To see someone do something so well with so little effort was amazing. He draws like others breath air, like it's just a natural ability.
    It's not a doll it's an action figure.

    Possibly the best storyteller I've ever met, too. He's going to be a favorite panelist at many Comic-Cons for years to come.
