|Eric and Charlotte with Andy Runton (who had a Doctor Who themed wedding recently).|
|She couldn't find any orange hair dye to go with her Amy Pond outfit, but Andy Runton suggested that she mark up her arms from seeing the Silence. I drew the line of her marking up her face!|
I was checking the guest list the night before and saw the DW reference for Josh Adams and then saw his fantastic Sherlock pieces online, so we were anxious to talk to him.
|Josh was really amazed at her Etch-A-Sketch|
I didn't see Josh's original pencils until Day Two, which is a good thing because my daughter would have fainted to see that signature. But I did end up getting her his Ash Can. What you are seeing is his try-out pages that got him the gig at IDW (if the art looks familiar you may have seen work from his father Neal before). I'm hoping that means we'll have a Sherlock series soon too!
Josh was the one who told us about Matthew Dow Smith being at the show too. He like Josh were super-nice and had encouraging things to say about her work. We also stopped by to see Kelly Yates and Thom Zahler. Thom took a piece of tracing paper overlayed her one comic-page and gave her a quick 10-minute lesson on things to improve that I'm sure will prove invaluable. You can check out her work here, which will also give links to her Who Fan Fiction.
|At least she can say she met one "Matt" Smith!|
|Before the Show.|
|A moderator in search of some panelists.|
|You can't take pictures (go search the web) while you're recording and I barely got a quick shot of Barry afterwards.|
That's not all, but we're almost done. Until next time, Cheerie Oh!
Oh wait. I forgot to tell you about the Comics And connection. Well, I started watching Doctor Who after interviewing (at Jim's recommendation) Paul J. Salamoff for his Logan's Run comic. She got the stomach flu and was home all day watching Doctor Who and the rest they say is history...
