Sadly, it's this type of event that appeals to me the most these days. :D
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.

Ha! I am coming to the same realization. The thing I was most excited about today is that I learned there are 700 year old petroglyphs just a couple hours drive from my house.

Congrats on that score, def mildly jealous on missing that one. I was checking at the wrong times and trying to do 2-3 things at once, cooking/bbq'ing, conversing with my gf, and trying to watch Mike draw. I loved the idea of the drop while I draw, great idea and very creative. Hope he has more of these.

I received my reg edition fat cardinal and love it. Looks like it could be a christmas ornament.

I was def surprised to see how low the print run was for the Magnicicadas, especially compared to the fat honey bees.

The doobie is actually my first MM. I just happened to find the link and within 1 hour, he dropped that surprise.

Yesss yes yes, it's to this day the only bug I'm willing to touch and crawl on me. I love those little guys.
