So, stop on by! I’ll post these again along with details of panels and etc I may be on closer to each date. And if any of you are on the ConCom (Convention Committee) for your local SF/F conventions and want me to be a part, drop me a line!

And some thanks. Thanks to Xavier Xerexes for a recent mentions over at Comix Talk here and here, and to Inky for the plug over at CoffeeTalk, and to Mr. D for the link from the NSFW Blonde Marvel (NSFW!). Thank you all!

And lastly, I thought I’d share a window into my process a bit. So, I needed to build a 3-D model of the G.O.B. Council Room. Not only that, I kinda’ needed to base the entire thing on one single panel I drew during the first month of Spacetrawler:

2010-01-11-spacetrawler_gobFortunately, I kinda knew I would be creating the room eventually, and so I had spent some time on making that panel good (AND I knew that the warthog-like “Narklon” would have some dialogue, so I put some time making sure it was a fun-looking character). So I took the design for the desk/chairs and combined it with a ornate centerpiece (which was designed after a chandelier) and this is what I built and now use for reference. Voila!
