Pretty standard flight
I remember sitting at our table at AERO Friedrichshafen drawing that strip. Man … That was a while ago. In the olden times, when there were conventions.
Whenever I go to a convention of some sort, I always bring some ideas in need of drawing. (Only as an exhibitor, of course.) Because people tend to arrive in batches. It’s always ten people at the same time. And then suddenly they’re gone and you sit alone, staring into nothingness, or worse, try to chat up people who you find out don’t want to be bothered. So I draw comic strips. It has two advantages: I fill up the empty time with a productive activity, and people can see what it is I’m doing. If they’re interested, they can watch or approach at their own leisure and talk to me.
It’s not that I go to that many conventions though. I’ve been to a handful of ComicCons and air shows. Hands down the best event is AERO. There’s just so many people there, that it’s never a bore. We sure are looking forward to the next one and keep our fingers crossed that circumstances permit one in 2022!
What are you looking forward to? Any of you out there already out and about again? I guess in Australia and parts of Asia, things are rather normal. Here in Austria, we’re just slowly opening up again.
