HOUSTON to AUSTIN

We visited some really great places in Houston including City Center which was once a former shopping mall Galleria type of complex and has since been replaced with a great series of restaurants and stores.  The Big Woo could learn a lot from Houston Texas.

Friday morning we left early for Austin and arrived at the convention center around 11 after checking into our hotel.  WIZARD WORLD AUSTIN is being held at the Austin Convention Center for three days, Friday 4-9pm, Saturday 10-7 and Sunday 10-5.  We're scheduled to give a half hour workshop on CREATING SUPERHEROES from 1130 to 12Noon in Exhibit Room A.

I've done my share of multi day cons and usually I'm not all that fond of Friday night openings-- there tends to be a limited attendance with little sales but we ended up doing quite well.

We'd agreed to do 100 free sketches prior to the Show that fans could pre-order and pick up with us, and although there were a few bumps along the way we were able to get the work done in time for the show.

We ended the show and headed over to Chuy's Tex Mex after it was recommended to us by two of our favorite customers of the evening.  It was a funky place with great menu options and terrific food.
