COMICS MEET-UP ----
I was late getting to the meet today, but the regulars were already into it when I walked in...
Melbourne comics heavy-weights were all around.
Jason Franks REALLY hates having his photo taken.
I twisted the arms of some of the guys to scribble a picture in my sketchbook. Curiously, none of them opted for the pens/markers I offered them, but instead, all borrowed a pencil from somebody. Anybody. What have people got against pens, man?
Before scooting off with a passenger on his back, Tom Bonin sketched this nice piece...
The clock struck about 6pm, the meet-up ended, and a few of us continued into the city to celebrate Jason Franks' birthday at a local Taco Bill restaraunt.
Considering most of the guys began drinking at 2pm (at the meet), they were really tanked and happy by dinner.
Even Jason didn't mind having his picture taken... now that's saying something!
When Paul Bedford ordered the margarita, the waitress asked, "The regular size?", and PAul says, "Nuh, the big one!" (thinking it would be a reasonable step up)... but we didn't know there were only 2 sizes. A normal glass... and a one litre!
It was massive.
What a trooper!
Paul was everyone's bitch after that one litre margarita.
