Cool Moments from Comic-Con Part 2: JJ Abrams

In my continuing follow up of this year's Comic Con's moments of coolness. I would be criminally liable if I didn't post about spotting JJ Abrams walking the exhibit hall at Comic Con. It was after the exhibit hall had closed that I spotted him talking to another artist. When he was done talking he and his entourage came closer to my artist alley table. This is where I approached him and asked if he was indeed the man JJ Abrams. He responded in the affirmative and was kind enough to talk for a few seconds, shake hands and take the obligatory super geeked out fan shot. Which I will now post here. Ladies and Gentlemen the savior of Star Trek... Mr. JJ Abrams (in a trekkie sandwich with me and Ian)!

You too should have collaborated on a drawing. As you sketch he could do his camera drum thing on your forearm and make a shaky cam drawing! All kidding aside, that is great.

That is pretty freakin' sweet! Sounds like you had one heck of time.
Hey, for next year, let me know if you need an assistant. :P

@Slade: yeah I didn't tell him no lens flares and shaky cam.
@Christy: That would fun! You going to come in costume?
