As I write this thousands of people are arriving into San Diego for Comic Con International and many are attending "Preview Night". I've never been there on Wednesday nights. It originally was a special "Preview" for professionals and retailers, but now it has grown to be nearly as busy as every other day at Con.
Shannon Muir and I will attend the convention Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We are riding Amtrak trains to and from San Diego each day, but it is much more inexpensive and relaxing than trying for a hotel room.
We attend Con to meet up with many of our professional friends and network with many of the companies in attendance.
This year I am bringing #MISSION818 with me.
If you've been around my blog long enough, or a regular visitor and follower of my facebook or twitter feed you'll know what #MISSION818 is. For those that don't here is a brief description.
Shannon and I are engaged to be married, and I plan to move to be with her in the Glendale/Burbank area, and so my Mission is find employment in or around the 818 area code before our wedding.
I would prefer to find employment with an animation production company or comic book publisher, but am open to other positions and companies in that region.
I am a scriptwriter, having written professional in television animation, and been hired to develop series for independent producers. I am also a comic book illustrator, novelist, and book cover artist.
If I could have the exact job I'm after it would Senior Vice President of TV Animation Series Development, but that's not going to happen right away. In the mean time I'll be quite happy to assist the guy in the position now. I'll even bring my own broom.
For my professional friends on facebook and twitter, you know that as I further my career I tag them with #MISSION818. So, this year I will be wearing a #MISSION818 T-Shirt and you all can find me in the Comic Con crowd. See the photo to know what you're looking for:
Feel free to stop me and say hi, and like my facebook post. More importantly, lets talk about what I can do for you.
Hope to write a Post-Con Blog next week, or maybe some on spot posts to my facebook page while I'm there and let you all know how #MISSION818 worked out.
Thank you all for the support.
