Scott Dunbier, Online! and the 2007 Fall Con
Two more things. He's lost a lot of weight since Jeff Campbell drew that portrait of him. He's staying healthy for the kids. And expect great things from him. Comics needs movers and shakers and he has that healthy dose of ambition common to NY kids.
The MN Fall Con was especially crazy this year. I give the option of either paying for sketches in MN or taking a dare. Almost everyone just took the dare. Sonia was a living billboard for Transylvania TV (TVTV) for a whole con day. You can't see it in the photo but I wrote their URL across her cheeks.
I traded sketches with Kurt Busiek. I did the following drawing of a gorilla in a baseball cap, and he wrote a script sketch (containing one story beat) of Superman and Lois buying an unusual house. I handed that sketch off to Doug Mahnke for him to interpret. Hoping he sends that back soon. I'm dying to see what he did!
I also did a sketch of Kitty Pryde and a sexy Engineer. I'll post up the Kitty sketch if you're interested but the Engineer came out a bit too sexy. . . .
I sat next to Zander and Kevin Cannon for the whole con. A nicely dressed woman came up to me looking for an artist who could draw technical subjects. Considering Zander's remarkable work on Space Junk and Space Weather I sent her down the row to him. I figured she was either rich or crazy. Poor Zander said she was just crazy.
