So I'm back from the holiday across the pond.  TStorm Fay did just about everything she could to make us feel well at home with the torrential rain and high winds. Bit like being on a Cornish beach in August. We were lucky though much of Florida was flooded.  But on a serious note I see that Gustav is threatening New Orleans area and my thoughts are with all my flist that may be affected, I was freaked with all the news and tracking predictions for Fay so I cannot imagine how you must be all feeling with a Hurricane on it's way.

Big Damn Heroes. - I miss my shows.  Dr Horrible made me want to sing (eek!) Perhaps Dollhouse will make me want to sketch/paint more. Here's hoping.

Kandyse McClure (Dee)
Nicky Cline (Callie)

Short notice cancellation from Alan Tudyk - but it sounds as if it was for work so, great for Alan.  This is the final Serenity/Firefly Convention for Starfury (in the UK - but no mention made of future LA events)

The incredibly awesome [ profile] acrazywench foolishly admitted that she did shorthand so there hopefully will be some transcripts at a later stage of the Q&A's and the ever lovely [ profile] mara_sho (jedi apprentice) took notes too so here's hoping.
So I've just flicked quickly through all the photos and have picked some for each Guest - First our BDH Adam Baldwin. 

Not  many silent moments in the Q&A's this time, so opportunities to get good shots without  the microphone in the way were few, but I think these aren't too bad. . 

More pictures this way... )

I've been so busy decorating and stumbling over firewalls/routers/speedswitches and thin clients that I have only just taken a peek of the pics from Serenity Four.  Small number of guests, but all so charming and entertaining to say the least.  Not so many to go through so I hope to have them uploaded to my site by the weekend along with some anecdotes from the weekend.

[personal profile] mara_sho  and [profile] acrazywench  were excellent companions - and like we said - we seriously need to do this more often. 

Sean Harry announced the first batch of guests for Serenity Infinity this October and Adam Baldwin has signed to attend along with Sean Maher and Morena Baccarin (I think)  Ellen Muth from Dead Like Me will also be there which should be dandy.  The three conventioneers have  booked so it will be something else to look forward to.

So Book and Badger are done. I am quite pleased with Book, he looked so stern in the painting I did last time. Ron is not due to appear but I am being optimistic. Super optimism will hopefully give me time to do Gina before the weekend. I'd also like to do another Mal, just because he is so pretty.

Book )

Normally conventions are far better for meeting whedonverse actors than signings but Collectormania 10 is shaping up to be sooo exciting. I have just seen that Elisabeth Rohm has been announced, so I am doing the 'dance of joy'. Along with 'Kate' we will also have 'Holland' Sam Anderson, 'Tara' Amber Benson, 'Jayne' (woot) Adam Baldwin, 'Maggie Walsh' Lindsay Crouse, 'Patience' from Serenity- Firefly and finally 'Drusilla' Juliet Landau. I have only met Juliet so that is a great line up (cross fingers no cancellations).

And finally

My thoughts are with all the people who lost relatives and friends in 9/11. We won't forget.

Ok, so I have uploaded the rest of the photos of Alan Tudyk & Ron Glass taken at Collectormania 9 this weekend. Thanks once again to my amazing Hubs for snapping away whilst I was bibbling like an idiot with the famous.

You can see them here scroll down and click on the Collectormania 9 Link.

It is less than 2 weeks away for Not Fade Away - Angel Convention. I need to start on Lindsey - Christian Kane artwork, and possibly some more sketches of Lorne & Fred. I've done Gunn - J August Richards so at least I have that one in the bag. Can't believe how quickly the year is passing. [ profile] acrazywench if you are reading this I will call you soon, I think I have transport to Heathrow sorted :)

Leaf on the wind *awww*

Things you do for family. The in-laws were here for Easter bless 'em. I am very lucky, they are great people although Pappy does drink the house dry. So we all over compensate by filling our glasses very full, for fear that the next time we reach for the bottle it will be empty.

Anyway I'm rambling, Pappy wanted to visit Northcote 'heavy horse' sanctuary, you know Shires and Percherons etc. We went on Monday and I was pleasantly surprised. I am not a 'horsey' person, I find them illogically intimidating for such gentle creatures. My girl was keen, so step up Mum and do your duty. The horses were gorgeous. Big and smelly but wonderful. We met the tallest horse in the UK (missed out on the world record by about half a finger or something) - He is called 'Cracker' which is appropriate. If you want to see horsey pic spam click here )

And if you are not into those kind of pictures I finished Book today so click here )
