San Diego Comic Con Photos

Dan Herman finally sent me a few photos from San Diego Comic Con.

Here's Dan manning the Hermes Press booth at a rare quiet moment - this must have been before the convention opened, because there was never a time after that when the booth was this deserted.

Here's one of me, next to the spiffy banner I brought to help promote the book.

This is a shot of me talking with Special Effects director Albert Hastings. Albert's supervised effects for Polar Express, Monster House and is the CGI director for Spiderman 3. He's also a big fan of UFO and Mike's work.
If you have any other photos from San Diego Comic Con of the booth or the panel we did on Friday night at the show, please send them!

Dragon*Con Update

As I suspected, my Supermarionation panel has been switched to Sunday at 1:00 p.m. in the Science Fiction Classics Programming Room. Check your schedule or this blog at the convention to see if they shuffle me around again!
It looks like I will be able to show the presentation of Mike's art that was so popular at the San Diego Comic Con. And I'll have a T-shirt or two to give away as well - be there!

Hope you've been saving your pennies...

Here's a small image of the original art that will be auctioned off for charity at Fanderson's Sector 25 Convention. Of course, it won't say on it - that's just for this blog.

This is a color pencil piece on paper and was a rough for the original cover of the book. Unfortunately, Mike's work schedule on Agent Crush prevented him from creating a finished image, and we wound up using existing art.
This was created before negotiations with Jeff Wayne were concluded - the finished art would have included the Fighting Machine and several other Anderson vehicles.
Expect the bidding to be heated!
Once again, check the SECTOR 25 website for information on the convention.
See you there!

The Labor Day weekend is full of traditions for me. Living in Atlanta, one of those traditions is watching asphalt melt on the roads.
The other is Dragon*Con.

Since I just got word that The Future Was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim is now in-stock at Hermes Press's warehouse, Dragon*Con seems like a fitting venue to release it into the wild. San Diego was the official premier, but D*Con will mark the book's availability to the public.
It should be on its way to distributors and larger accounts before the end of the week.
I'll be moderating a panel on Supermarionation and Anderson television shows in the Science Fiction Classics Programming room on Saturday, Sept. 2, at 11:30 a.m. (I believe, check the program schedule at the convention) and hope that anyone reading this who will be at the convention will stop by and say hello!
