Late-night posting from my room at AC via the iPad. Been a fun, nicely laid-back con so far, and except for dinner at “Big Mama’s” (that was a mistake), everything has been very pleasant and enjoyable. I was expecting a fairly depressed (economy-wise) con, but today business was brisk and I got a nice number of sketchbooks. No badges, which surprised me … FC it was all badges, all the time.
The iPad has served admirably for my on-the-road computing needs; I used it in the dealer room to look up art reference, handed it around to a few other artists for the same, and now of course I’m using it to write a mini con-report.
I’ve also had lots of people going, “Ooooh, is that an iPad? Can I play with it?” … which has the added benefit of brining people to the table.
