Recently I attended the Stumptown Comicfest in Portland OR. There I had the privilege to meet my favorite author/artist of all time STAN SAKAI. I'm not really big on getting autographs or meeting celebrities, but I wasn't gunna miss a chance to meet the nicest guys in comics these days.
In case you guys don't know who Stan Sakai is, he is the writer/artist of the greatest comic in the known world Usagi Yojimbo. Usagi Yjimbo is the tale of a lone wandering samurai name Miyamoto Usagi who ventures through feudal Japan. Did I mention he's a rabbit? Yea that's a right, a Rabbit. I'm such a sucker for anthropomorphic animals. Usagi Yojimbo has supplied me with hours upon hours of enjoyment and happiness, so when i had the chance to meet the writer of this masterpiece I was first in line. Literally, I was the first fan there on opening day to greet him. Being the fanboy that I am, of course I had to out do all the other geeks there by giving him a present for creating my favorite hero. The gift came from the creative mind of my girlfriend Makayla. She is a master at the art of Nerdigurumi. We came up with the idea of crocheting him a little Usagi doll, and boy did he love it! We watched him play with it even after we recieved our autographs and moved on. I was so proud to have given him so much joy after the endless amount of joy he has given me. I really hope he placed it on his mantel or on his drawing table, but more than likely he threw it in a box somewhere never to be seen again, but I can hope.
