It's not always easy to manage, but anyone just getting a book or two signed shouldn't have to wait behind a bunch of people seeking sketches.
That's the most frustrating thing about cons. Scott McDaniel and Jim Balent ALWAYS have the longest lines because their sketchability is in high demand. And they do high quality work for as little time as they take per sketch.
Thankfully, though, Scott will pause every once in a while to take care of a few autographs. Because the line can get stagnant. And the complaints can get louder than a whisper. As for Jim Balent, his girlfriend Holly G asks who's getting sketches or just autographs. And she will take your stack and have him sign it in between sketches. Very cool of her.
