La Mole Comic Con

Our first non-English speaking con, but intuitive translators and organized facilitators made the undertaking nearly effortless. We were met at the airport, then whisked away to the hotel for a good night's sleep. The next morning we were treated to a tour of Teotihuacan followed by a quick, private visit to the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. Three days of "con", great food and drink, plus Lucha Libre on Sunday. Home of my "ant-sesters", as Paolo called them when he was five. It was great! Thank you everyone...

I'll let Paolo explain the process from concept to coloring, but I'm his inker (and proud dad)
