Flavourful Comic Con Thrills


whatta day at the big sweaty comic con signings with all the cartoonist bigshot friends: John, Bauza, Jim Smith and Katie!












This picture is no JOKE i tells ya. I drew real real real fast all day, lots of live caricatures of people. Katie drew a billion of her trademark funny-cute girls and john drew hilarious character scenes of random, yet sexy proportions. I hope all you adoring fans are rubbing your drawing presents on yourselves right now and getting love-papercuts on your softest parts!
Here's fine head examples of me (on L) and Katie Rice (R)

Several people asked me if I worked on the first season of Ren and Stimpy, and i said uhh you mean when i was 6 years old? sure!




I spent the whole day at two booths and met a lot of great people, and i'm sorry i couldn't hang out with everyone. (Especially Gary and Scott diggs) I even got to meet triumph the funny rubber hump dog! I hope he makes some cartoons with us soon!

The day was a great success! johnnie had a jillion fans and some waited all day in line just so see him, and every last DVD sold.


I loved joking with fans, and i couldn't believe the huge following that i had. I'm glad I've been entertaining so many people with my cartoons. Thank you for coming to see me! Here's hands down my favorite visitor, the adorable Bryan! what a nice fellow:


i forgot to ask him if he was 18, wink!





If you have any Marlo drawings or pictures on your blogs, let me know and i'll link them in my next post!!!

Wow Marlo.. Sounded like a good time. Wish I could have been there.. Im currently trying to get John and whoever he wants to bring, to Chicago. The Illinois Institute of Art invites guest speakers and I suggested John K. come and do his thing.. Hopefully, something like this can happen in Chicago..later

Marlo Meekins said...

i'll come too if you guys want!

rickgo said...

Brett W. Thompson said...

Woooow!! You and Katie are such adorable, amazing art goddesses :) I really wish I had been there, looks like everyone had a total blast! :)

I don't really care said...

Great pictures, Marlo! But aren't you forgetting to post the Cheerios one......

Jenny said...

Look at you gorgeous girls! I espied you from afar(well, maybe it was 20 feet, maybe 10--might as well have been 500 with the wall of flesh in the way, no shit); You, Marlo, are a gold-plated glamour-puss! Your wattage is something else again...it was weird--do you you just always look like you're having the time of your life?
I think I know the answer. Katie I could barely see over the heads & shoulders, Johnnie was beaming like a little kid. All in all a beautific group. : )

And I am too too shy to say boo. Eh, you had a big old line when I was hacking my way through, anyway. I hope you & John & Katie(tell her to take a sabbatical from her sabbatical, just to post post-Con)get lots of links from your drawing recipients--I want to see more! These are all super as per usual. How does your hand feel? Pooped?

Shawn said...

Yeeee-esss!

Marlo is A-okay in my book!

Good job, pal!

Chloe Cumming said...

That looks like the most fun in the whole world… in a wrist ache repetitive strain injury way... Gaaaahhh! I wish I was more international.

Oh bollocks I’m so jealous of you getting relentless art-worship from adorable teenage boys.

That and your drawings, which are super brain-revolutionising

And that’s such a gorgeous photo of you and Katie. It makes me want to be a cartoonist and go and live off the land on John K’s girl cartoonist farm or wherever it is you people live. Or draw you both, I’m not sure which.

I am hatching secret plots to become a lady of leisure and hence go to LA and receive undeserved accent-based sexual attention.

I'm sending you love from afar...

Nico said...

MARLO... i saw you at the booth! i unfortunately couldn't say hi (just... way too much stuff happening way too fast) but while standing in line to say hi to John, I watched as you drew a great picture of Katie.

YOU DREW IT IN LIKE 2 MINUTES. I was way way way impressed. you're amazing. i'm such a fan!

hope you guys have a booth again next year!!!!!

Brian Romero said...

It looks like you guys had a blast! I'll be there next year.

"psst! Katie! ..Here comes Gary.. look down! don't make eye contact!! Hold your breath!"

Some guy with a pen said...

You are just too incredible! I wish I could just sit next to you for five minutes and absorb some of your greatness via osmosis. An dnot that crappy Chris Rock movie either, I mean the real scientific process.

Big AL said...

I feel like an eeeediot!
I could have had Katie draw me one of her signature girls and all I had her do was sign a print!?! It was a lovely print of 3 of her girls, but … I'm not used to just asking someone for a drawing.
When I was there at the everypicturetellsastory booth there was noone else around even.
… and I missed Marlo!!!

CSnyde said he met you earlier that day when I was at the sketchbook session that night.

Oh, well.

Chris Rockwell said...

Marlo, will you been in San Francisco for the adult cartoon shows?

Big AL said...

Ah, man … I missed Marlo!

I got a print of Katie's girls and had her sign it, but didn't think to have her draw me one?!? The everypicturetellsastory booth was quiet at the time too. The quiet before the storm I guess.

Aaron Paetz said...

hey! thats my HEAD and the drawing you did for me! You Girls rock and john does too. Thanks for the drawing Marlo! i'll see you next time.

Marlo Meekins said...

Big Al, next caricature con i'll see you as usual, buddy! are you still in south Cal?

Aaron- Your friend took all those great snapshots! i wanted to give her credit but i forgot her name....

nico and others-If i didn't get to meet or draw or meet you, i'll make up for it with a fantastic free drawing next time! stay tuned to see where i'll be next!

Ward Jenkins said...

Looks like a great time was had by all! Some day I'll try and uproot from my fluffy-white thighness here in the Dirrty South and go to SD for the Con. Some day...some day.

Great blog, by the way. Incredible talent you got going on here. Keep it up!

Comic con was so fun. Meeting you guys was the best part, though. I'm still lusting over those drawings you did for me, Marlo. They're some of the best things ever. Too bad I didn't find out sooner that you were friends with Gary. Oh well, always next time!

I'll see if i can get those sketches scanned and put those up with some of the pictures I took.

bryan said...

sketches and pics for yous guys

david gemmill said...

COOL COMIC CON PHOTOS. LOOKS LIKE IT WAS A SUPERCOOL TIME..


OH WAIT it was cause you told me.




Just in case everyone doesn't know already, i would like make it known that MARLO (marlosky Meekinstov) is a FAMOUS CARTOONIST, and all those kids that got FREEBEES at the CON, are not going to be so lucky next time, as marlo's agent told me that he is gonna make sure marlo charges a pretty penny for each caricature she does for her fans.


Consider yourselves lucky.























KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK PAL

DRAW TILL YOUR ARM FALLS OFF















(i remember when i started writing this comment, the type of potential it had to be a good one, then of course it all went downhill after the 3rd word, and turned in a mediocre blogger comment, however it is probably better than most comments left before it, so that being said, all in all, when it comes right down it, when all is said and done, when you get the nitty gritty, when you stop beating around the bush, when you seperate the wheat from the chaft, the good from the bad, the boners from the vagina's, IT AIN'T HALF BAD the ways i sees it.

Animal Qwacker said...

Ah! THAT'S why you didn't stop by our table! I was wonerin' where the heck you were hanging out.
I did finally meet Big Al and Gary though.

Jorge Garrido said...

Gweat pics, you three are so freakin' talented! If John comes to Canada for a show or something you gotta come!

Rebecca said...

Hi Marlo!! It was so great meeting you, I'm still giddy about it all. I feel like a dunce cause I forgot to take pictures of you and Kate Rice! Man am I kicking myself cause I want to paint you guys like crazy, could I paint something off one of these photos you took?

Hee-Marlo: I got an earful from a couple of guys yesterday re: the lovely redhead[you]: "She's hot!" All cartoonists, but still...

Peter said...

Hi! I sort of met you at the con with John and Katie, but didn't know your name then and I was shy (I was dressed like the 80s uncle, red polo shirt with gold rim shades). I put some photos I took of you guys online if you want to check them out.

Anyhoo, it's nice to meet you! Thanks again!

When do you start the live caricatures of ugly people show? I'm telling you I pinched the idea to a writer friend at Nickelodeon, he thinks it's a natural.
Do it in front of the Mann Chinese and I guarantee you will be on the Jimmy Kimmel show in a matter of days. They film near there. If they don't find you, I know a writer there who wrote my strip in Mad who works there. They love jokes based on how ugly people are and they love cute girls.
Cute girl who makes gut wrenching caricatures of slimy people and makes them cry and get angry. Ugly guys would pretend they like the drawings just to breathe on you. What are you waiting for? The Gold is on the ground, sober up and pick it up.

I just noticed that you spelled "flavourful" the Un-American way (or should I say: the correct Canadian/British way). What was that about?
