"Kind of a shame"? That's putting it lightly. IMO, it's a freaking joke. There aren't as many artists as there are at the US Celebrations, but they deserve the same respect. Comparing where they are to the back end of a semi trailer sounds about right, unfortunately. Not sure what the lines are like since I grabbed my Malcolm Tween print first thing Friday morning, but it sounds like the promoters took a step back with this show in regards to the artists.It is kind of a shame they have stuck the artists in the very back corner of the hall in what looks like the back end of a semi-trailer. You don't see them from the outside and they are surrounded by high walls. When you enter there is just a narrow hallway so it is jam packed with people and almost impossible to move around. Plus there is just one cash register.
I got the print of the painting Drew had hanging at his booth on Sunday after 5 after asking him about it a few times during the show. He was really nice about it and even signed the print for me.Drew Baker has on a display some images of an as-of-yet unreleased 6 foot "A New Hope" Darth Vader with a defiant Princess Leia painting. It is remarkable and screams classic trilogy.
