For all the problems associated with my trip to Otakon there were some really marvelous things about the convention itself that made the trip worthwhile.
There was the chance to meet you, my most wonderful readers in the world. This is always the highlight of any convention and you folks always make me feel like a million bucks.
There was the chance to hang out with some very good friends of mine for the weekend, where good times were had and new projects were discussed.
There was not one, but two home-cooked meals delivered to me at my little table! Lots of rice, corn on the cob, sauteed vegetables, mushrooms(!) and an impressive bento box. Many thanks to Larom and Rob for the belly-filling surprises.
There was the chance to grope a very naughty lady and have her grope me back. She also approves of my mutton chops.
And now on to the proposal I mentioned yesterday after I was done complaining about my Otakon journey.
After ConnectiCon I will be going on vacation with my girlfriend for about one week. So I come to you, my talented readers, to supply me with fan art to go up as filler while I'm away. I will choose five different pieces from five different artists to post from August 3 to August 7. I'll be looking for pictures that are related to the current story.
The deadline to get your artwork in will be July 29. Just e-mail your art to me but please be considerate of my inbox. 5MB files tend to clog things up a bit.
That's all from me for now.
