Read the next episode of “So, You’re A Cartoonist?” here: [link]
This happened to me when I attended my first comic con. I signed up to be on the guest list months ahead of time, but when I arrived I was mysteriously absent from their master list of guests.
This is part 1 of 2. So please don't ask "what happened next?" because you will find out soon enough. Patience young grasshopper... patience...
EDIT: For all of you who think I got the wing in the airplane panel "wrong" please take a look at this image: [link]
I was trying to show the wing from this perspective (seated in front of the wing looking back at a 45'ish angle) and I am terribly sorry if it wasn't clear enough. I made a mistake, and there's no need to continue to point it out.
