Toorcon 12 was a couple weeks ago. It’s a hacker convention held in San Diego, at the convention center. For me, it’s always surreal because I’m accustomed to the convention center to be overstuffed with sweaty comic book people. I like Toorcon because it’s a lot mellower, and a bunch of my friends are there. For the past few years, I’ve been doing artwork for Toorcon. The illustration above was the program cover. I did it in Illustrator and Photoshop, and it took about a week.
The lineart was also used as a shirt design, which was printed in a variety of colors. I loved seeing people wear it!
My favorite part of Toorcon was hanging out in the Altitude Sky Lounge with my ninja crew, overlooking the city as the sun set. Watching people get around security packaging as part of a contest was pretty rad too.
