Console Room 2024 – Minneapolis

This weekend I’ll be a guest at my old hometown Doctor Who convention Console Room Jan 12-14 at the Hilton MSP Airport/Mall of America Hotel in Bloomington, MN.

I’m looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting fellow Doctor Who fans.

I’ll be doing a signing each day of the con. Signatures are free and I’ll have copies for sale of Heralds of Destruction (my 3rd Doctor comic written by Paul Cornell), Operation Volcano (my 7th Doctor comic written by Andrew Cartmel), and Once Upon a Time Lord (my 10th Doctor graphic novel written by Dan Slott). I’ll also have a selection of my 11×17 Doctor Who art prints, including two NEW pieces – the cover art from Once Upon a Time Lord and my design of a “Season 27” era console room as I had designed for Operation Volcano.

Cover - Once Upon a Time Lord  

On Sunday I’ll be privileged to interview Sylvester McCoy on MainStage, so stop by to see how that goes!

Saturday morning at 10:00am I’ll be giving a visual presentation on my history with Doctor Who artwork. It’s a retrospective and also has a bit of window into my process and just some fun stories and Easter eggs. I hope some folks get up early enough on Saturday to come join me!

Christopher Jones at Gallifrey One 2020

I am delighted to be returning as a guest to the Gallifrey One convention, February 14-16 at the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel. I have a great time every year at Gallifrey One, and this is the first time I’ll be attending as a local, since moving to Los Angeles in December!

This year I will NOT have a table in the Dealers Room, but there will still be plenty of opportunities to see me and (if you are so inclined) buy my art!

Here’s my schedule:

Friday, February 14


1:00pm – Autographs

I’ll be signing autographs and selling prints in the Autograph area for two hours each day of the convention. Autographs are always free and I’m happy to sign items you already own. Stop by and say hello!

6:00pm – The Game of Rassilon

Christopher Jones • Dan Peck • Michael Nixon • Ben Paddon • Riley Silverman
Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversaries… wait. That’s Hunt for Red October. Sorry. This is silly Doctor Who speed role-playing in front of an audience. Come see the fun!

Saturday, February 15


1:00pm – Autographs

It’s the second daily autographic block. I should be there until 3pm. Come see me!

4:00pm – Taking Your Love of Doctor Who to the Next Level

Christopher Jones • Lauren Bancroft • Abie Ekenezar • Andy Hicks • Jennifer Picker • Brian Uiga • Kevin Wilcox
I started as a Doctor Who fan and now I draw Doctor Who comics! Crazy, right? Come here about the individual journeys of the panelists from Who fandom to something… more!

8:00pm – The Masquerade of Mandragora 2020, Featuring “The Time of the Comedy”

Christopher Jones • Tony Lee • Lauren Bancroft • Abie Ekenezar • Joseph Scrimshaw • Riley Silverman
Something funny will happen to fill time during the Masquerade judging. We hope.

Sunday, February 16


11:00am – Christopher Jones: Illustrating the Future

If I had titled this I would have called it Doctor Who: Heralds of Destruction – Live commentary. I see actors do live commentary on their TV episodes all the time at these conventions. Why can’t I do the same for my comic book work? I’ll be talking about my creative process and sharing some behind-the-scenes stories and easter eggs from the Third Doctor mini-series I drew, based on a story by Paul Cornell!

12:00pm – Autographs

Last chance of the weekend to come get something signed or buy one of my prints. Don’t miss out! (I’ll have to leave a bit before 2pm to get to my next panel…

2:00pm – Current Star Trek Comics

Paul Cornell • Jody Houser • Christopher Jones • Collin Kelly • Jackson Lanzing • Denton Tipton Paul and I will be talking about our brand-new Star Trek: Year Five Valentine’s Day special as part of a presentation on what’s happening with IDW’s Star Trek comics.
Again, I’m always happy to talk to fans and make new friends, so please come say hello. Autographs and photos are always free!

Come see me at MCBA Fallcon October 5 2013!

Hey, did I mention I’m going to be at the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo this weekend?

  • I’ll be in Artists Alley (Booth E3), selling comics, original art (including pages and covers from my Young Justice series), and doing commission sketches on a first come-first served basis.
  • I’ll be signing at the DC Comics booth (DCE Booth #115) Saturday from 1:00pm-2:00pm and Sunday from 3:00pm-4:00pm.
  • I’ll also be on the DC Comics for Kids! panel on Sunday from Noon-1:00pm in Room S402ab.

Oh, did I mention I’ll be selling prints? Check out my Etsy store for a sneak preview of what I’ll have available. All my $30 prints will be available at C2E2 for $20 each! And of course there’s no shipping fee when you buy in person, so why not stop by and pick up one of these great prints while they last!

My next appearance will be on Free Comic Day (May 1) I’ll be at The Source Comics and Games in Roseville, MN.

You can see all of my planned 2012 appearances on my (appropriately enough) Appearances Page.
