For those of you who were not fortunate enough to have been at Phoenix Comicon this last weekend, here’s the part of the Super Happy Fun Time With John and Wil in which we unveil the Unicorn Pegasus Kitten painting. The whole bit will take about 20 minutes of your time.
First, a segment in which Wil and I give context for the UPK by recounting the creation and delivery of The Velvet Wesley:
And now, the segment in which we reveal the work and discuss a little about the contest and who is participating.
Fun stuff, and thanks to “locobravo” for filming it and posting it on YouTube.
As for my Sunday, well, you were just looking at the most awesome part of it, but the rest of it was pretty good as well. Both of my two other panels that day went off without a hitch, and of course Super Happy Fun Time With John and Wil was, in fact, super, happy and fun. Once everything was done, I went and — yes — had dinner with friends, and then hung about in the bar with some of the staff and remaining guests in a very informal dead dog party.
Then came my Monday, which involved my flight from Phoenix to Dallas being canceled and thus me being rerouted into O’Hare and its inevitable Vortex of Memorial Day Suck, meaning a) my initial flight was delayed b) my connecting flight was canceled and c) if I hadn’t have rented a car to drive to Ohio, I would be getting home right about now, presuming, of course, that I wasn’t additionally delayed in some fashion, which I’m sure I would be. Of course, this is why I specified to the folks at the convention that I wanted to do everything possible to avoid O’Hare, and why I was booked to Dallas in the first place. But, silly me, I forgot you cannot escape your travel karma. I really must have sucked in a past life.
But my travel woes are neither here nor there as regards the Phoenix Comicon, which was frankly an awesome time and a great place to be a guest. The staff and attendees made me feel tremendously welcome, and I both got to spend time with old friends and the opportunity to make some new ones as well. So, really, a blast. It’s a con I’d love to come to again.
And now, because in some ways it should be completely inevitable that it had to happen, here’s me and Wil performing “Don’t Stop Believin'” on Rock Band. Oh, yes. You are not prepared.
