Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious Years

gally1logo

 

Okay, at the 11th hour, I am finally posting my FULL schedule master post for Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious Years. I can’t even tell you how busy I’ve been in the past week to only be getting to this now. But, I’m now in sunny & warm Los Angeles surrounded by several thousand Doctor Who fans. And it is awesome.

Anyway, I’ve been a tad more involved in Gallifrey One this year – I designed this year’s logo, and provided art for the Registration postcard, as well as helping to organize a large Young Justice event at the convention. I’ll be on a couple panels this weekend, and I’ve made sure to have some table time every day so I can be found! So, let’s get down to business, shall we?

 

Here’s my full Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious Years schedule:

Friday: 

1:30pm-3:00pm - Exhibitor table
3:30pm-4:30pm - Four Color Wonderland (Programming B)

Saturday: 

10:00am-3:00pm - Exhibitor table
3:00pm-4:00pm – Kaffeeklatsch (Greg Weisman/Christopher Jones)

Exhibitor Table

I’ll have ALL of my prints available while I’m at my hall table, as well as a VERY LIMITED number of Young Justice trade paperbacks. I’ll also be happy to sign anyone’s Gallifrey One 2014 postcard, for which I provided the art. You should be able to find stacks of these around the convention throughout the weekend as well! :)

Young Justice Events!!

young justice gally panel

There will be a Young Justice panel at 5:00pm on Saturday, Feb. 15th in Program Room B! Confirmed panelists are listed below but with this crowd, you never know who might turn up.

    • Cameron Bowen – Voice of Robin (Tim Drake)
    • Kris Carter – Composer
    • Christopher Jones – Comic Book Artist
    • Stephanie Lemelin – Voice of Artemis
    • Eric Lopez – Voice of Blue Beetle
    • Vanessa Marshall – Voice of Black Canary
    • Michael McCuistion - Composer
    • Masasa Moyo – Voice of Bumble Bee
    • Lolita Ritmanis – Composer
    • Andrew Robinson – Writer
    • Brent Spiner – Voice of the Joker
    • Jason Spisak – Voice of Kid Flash
    • Greg Weisman – Producer

There will be a short time for signing after the panel. Then starting at 6:30pm, join Greg Weisman, myself, and other Young Justice contributors for a casual Young Justice fan meet-up in the LAX Marriott lobby. The meet-up is open to the public, but it is during a Doctor Who convention, so expect crowds and to spend your time standing! Also, full disclosure: if it becomes too crowded, the hotel may ask anyone not attending the convention to leave.

Also, I’ve created a special SYMBIOSI ribbon for anyone attending the Young Justice panel or the Meet-up afterwards.

Okay – I think that’s all the Gallifrey One news & info! Looking forward to seeing lots of fellow Doctor Who and Young Justice fans this weekend! Whew- I’m done with this JUST IN TIME to make it to my first table appearance. Better get going! Allons-y!

Sonic Envy is Canon in Day of the Doctor?

Sonic-Envy-reframed-prevThis art is available on Etsy

When I first drew this piece back in 2010, I had no idea it would prove to be so prophetic. It was basically just expressing my reaction to the toy version of the 11th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver (which I had dutifully collected.) Somehow the images I’d seen online and in the show didn’t fully convey how much larger it was than the previous model, and the pop-out claw that had been added just seemed to push it over the top.

Little did I imagine than that 3 years later the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special would be focused primarily on pairing these two Doctors, and that there would be a moment where there screwdrivers come out and… well…. from what I understand they make pretty much this joke. We’ll see how close they come when I see the actual episode with everyone else this Saturday, November 23rd!

CONvergence 2013 – Registration Badge & Souvenir Book Cover Art

CVG 2013 Souvenir Book Cover prev

This was the cover art for the CONvergence 2013 Souvenir Program Guide. Years ago I had drawn the CONvergence mascot Connie as all 10 of the Doctors from Doctor Who. Now as Matt Smith is preparing to leave the show, I still hadn’t had the occasion to add the 11th Doctor to that series. Clearly, this was the time! I arranged Connie as the Eleven Doctors into a clock face around the Seal of Rassilon, with Connie’s creator Professor Max in the #12 position. Will Professor Max be the 12th Doctor? Time will tell…

We had a new system for badges this year, with pre-printed plastic badges in a horizontal format, rather than laminating paper badges designed in a vertical format. The best outcome of this is that the badges now are friendly to the Badge Ribbon tradition popular at Gallifrey One and other conventions! Of course, this badge shape creates some interesting challenges for badge art. Here’s what I came up with for CONvergence 2013!

CVG 2013 Badge 5 & Under b

Connie as the Conductor from Thomas the Tank Engine

CVG 2013 Badge 6-12 b

Connie as Harry Potter

CVG 2013 Badge 13-17 d

Connie Mark 2 as Number Two from The Prisoner

CVG 2013 Badge Adult c

Professor Max as Rose Tyler, Connie as… apparently SEVERAL of the Doctors, and Connie Mark 2 as a Cyberman

Denver Comic Con – May 31-June 2 2013

Comic-Con-630x423

What a crazy month! It seems like just yesterday I was at the C2E2 convention in Chicago, then it was Free Comic Book Day at The Source Comics and Games, last weekend it was MCBA Springcon, and now I’m getting ready to head off to  Denver Comic Conand I can’t wait! I’ll be joining my Young Justice partner-in-crime Greg Weisman at the Denver show, so it’ll be a great opportunity to get us BOTH to sign all those Young Justice comic books and prints! I’m really looking forward to this, and it’ll be my first visit to Denver if you don’t count layovers at the airport.

At my table, I am happy to sign anything you bring me! I will be doing commission sketches, and I will have comics and Young Justice trade paperbacks for sale.

In addition to my Young Justice prints, I’ll have plenty of other 11″×17″ prints for $20 each, some of which you can see here.
