It's Friday, and I'm a Con-aholic

It's Friday, and today I want to admit something to you:

I am a Comic Con art shopaholic.

People go to comic con for many reasons, but my specific reason (besides the Cosplay aspect) is to discover and purchase work from artists that I would not know of otherwise.  Today, I'd like to share with you 5 of my favorite Comic Con art purchases.  There's also a linkup at the bottom for any bloggers who are participating in The Nerdy Girlie 5 Fandom Friday!

( 1) Star Trek: Enterprise and (2) Star Trek: Next Generation art by Jason Oakes.  You can find more about Jason Oakes and his work on my previous blog - check it out here. We used Jason's work in our nursery, and I'm planning on moving it to the master bedroom when Amelia is old enough to have a designing opinion for her room!




 (3) In the moment sketches. I hate to say that I don't remember which artist drew this, but this is a sketch of Amelia at her first Comic Con.  There was an artist at Fan Expo Dallas promoting his new children's book, and we struck up a conversation with him.  We talked for a good 20 minutes, and he just loved that Amelia was at her first Comic Con.  he wouldn't let us leave without capturing the moment.

Hand made wares are also a weakness of mine, and buying something for Amelia at Comic Con was inevitable.  I couldn't pass up the (4) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and (5) Sherlock house shoes for babies!  Now, Amelia's nerd-tastic wardrobe is definitely in the works!


There are wonderful items that you can find at Comic Con - collectibles, Cosplay accessories, etc. but I will always have a soft spot for artist!
