Randy and Dann gave out free sketches throughout the day, and they were definitely the hit of the table, and helped us sell more books than we would have otherwise. They were flippin' amazing. A kid would ask for a picture of a character, and within five minutes, Dann and/or Randy had whipped up a sketch that would put anything I could ever do to shame. It was a very cool thing to watch the kid's eyes light up with their new pic.
I think my favorite moment involved Dann with a father and his son. It was their first convention, and the dad had been out of the comic book loop for quite some time. His son was interested in being a comic book artist, and had brought along his sketchbook for artists to sketch in for him. Dann did up a sketch for him of Gore from Kreetor (nice promotional plug, Dann!), but then he went a step beyond. He tore out a sheet of paper from his own sketchpad and spent a good ten minutes walking through some basic anatomy techniques for the kid to use on his quest to become the next comic book star. It was a great moment, and both the father and son were unbelievably grateful for the time he took with them. They ended up buying several comics as well, and you can't beat that.
