feels like disneyland

concept: the entire smh crew + friends working at the disneyland parks.

bits is working as a chef at the jolly holiday bakery cafe who occasionally visits jack, an animator who works at the animation academy and is best friends with shitty, tho he’s referred to as mr. knight at the parks.

shitty doesn’t work at the parks but is involved at disney animations a lot since his girlfriend lardo is both an animator for disney shorts and an occasional imagineer for the parks. she loves going to the parks bc a) her work is there woot woot and b) ransom & holster are performers in the parade and shows. (occasionally they’re seen at  Le Salon Nouveau in D33 but shhh no one knows that).

nursey and dex are apart of the college program, along with chowder. nurse is always operating rides and somehow, dex is always there to fix it. chowder is an assistant to all face characters and loves hanging out with farmer, who plays belle in the shows and at meet and greets.

they definitely have a blast closing down the park occasionally

The Haunted Mansion → Aesthetics 

“Welcome! Foolish Mortals, to the haunted mansion, I am your host, your ghost host. Here where you see paintings of some of our guests, as they appeared in their corruptible, mortal state. Kindly step all the way in please, and make room for everyone. Theres no turning back now… Your cadaverous parlour, betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis. Is this Haunted room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination, hhmm?? And condsider this dismaying observation, this chamber had no windows, and no doors. Which offers you this chilling challenge, to find A WAY OUT! HAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!! Of course, there’s always my way…”

mingyu: *looks at the writing on his palm* hey wonwoo, there are people who say disneyland is the happiest place on earth-

wonwoo: well it kind of i-

mingyu: apparently none of them have ever been in your arms

wonwoo: bro….

man, @rosecitycomiccon was a blast.  and really well run.  it was SO kid friendly. the crowd was so diverse and welcoming. the cosplayers were SO good and so fun that my kids basically feel like they went to disneyland.

the future of conventions is KID and family friendly. not hollywood bullshit friendly. 

i am posting that panel pic because that is from the writing lecture panel i did with david walker. look at that hungry late sunday afternoon crowd.  look at all the different kinds of voices that are looking for their way into comics.  the next ten years of comics is going to be something to see.

Very happy to be part of it.

speaking of happy: so the only bummer is i rarely get to walk the floor but i do get to meet tons of people and get tons of reports from fans about what is going on. and AGAIN i am hammered with reports of a few, really a few, crabby, belligerent, cantankerous creators who decide that they don’t have to be polite to the readers. that they don’t have to say hello… pro tip: you do.   i met these readers.  they are good nice people.  being an asshole to them because you think the world has done you wrong or you’re hung over or whatever the reason is so insipid to me.

be cool to your readers or STAY HOME.  

soapbox over! thank you all for an amazing weekend. and it was a con i could ride my bike to! 

off to bolivia tomorrow (!!) see you there.

“I find that people love WDW better than Disneyland, but I completely disagree. I feel like because Disneyland is smaller, you can experience the magic even better. You have less you feel like you have to do, and it just makes me really happy walking past the Mickey flowers and thru the tunnel to Main Street. I would pick Disneyland over WDW any day!”
