I Bought Too Much Art At Supanova 2022, Please Look At It

So I went to the Supanova Comic & Gaming Convention on Sunday with my fellow writers from Gizmodo and Lifehacker, Zac Kelly and Lauren Rouse.

Fun times were had by all. Zac and I fought each other with foam swords (I won) and then fought a seasoned LARPer together (we won). Lauren bought a replica of Long Claw, which is Jon Snow’s sword from Game of Thrones. I bought the froggy coin purse from Naruto for this reason alone:

It was a time. Of course, there were the usual moments of convention mania, with Heath Ledger’s Joker merchandise everywhere you look, the most normal-temperature Domino’s Pizza you’ve ever eaten, and a lot of cosplayers running around. This year was the year of Genshin Impact cosplays, which makes sense because there are just so many gosh-darn girls and boys to choose from in that game.

However, my favorite part of any convention is the artist’s alley. A beautiful part of the hall that showcases art from local artists, where they’ll sell prints and badges and more. On Sunday, I was on a mission. I came with a plan. I was going to buy as much gamer art as I possibly could, all for the purpose of showing you good folks the sort of talent we have here. And so I did, and it was glorious. I’d like to show you the art I bought now, so you can bask in its glory too.
