    The Fan Art forum has been privilaged recently by visits by professional artists who have actually worked for Lucasfilm and know the ins and outs of the business. They have even taken the time out of their busy schedules to post some of their artwork here on the boards for all of us to see and learn from. But why limit this to the boards?

    This thread is designed for the professional artists that frequent the boards to post when they will be appearing at conventions or other notable events so that they can give a heads up to the members.

    Special thanks goes to Otis_Frampton for actually coming up with the idea for this thread. :)

    Thanks, HanSolo29!

    I also hoped this thread could serve as a way for Fan Art Forum members to plan meetings when they'll be attending the same conventions. I know that a lot of forum members over at T'Bone's Galactic Senate met up during C3, and it would be great if some of us could finally meet face to face once and a while, when possible.

    :D

    So, I guess I'll start.

    I'll be at the San Diego Comic-Con next week, from the Wednesday the 13th (Preview Night) until Sunday the 17th. I'll be signing copies of my comic Oddly Normal (all 4 issues will be available there!) and selling personal sketch cards at the Viper Comics booth (#1949). For information of the location of the booth, go here.

    So if you're going to be at the con next week, please stop by and say hello! Thanks!

    -Otis

    Cool, so we got Otis, gatodama, and Tom. This year I couldn't make the whole week so I probably will only be there for that Saturday(bummer)but I hope I get to catch you guys there and say hi!

    I think Jan Duursema, Joe Corroney, Sarah Wilkinson, Matt Busch, Dennis Weaver are going to be there. Is Randy going?

    Hi Guys!

    :D

    I won't be at SDCC, but I will be camping a table at the Canadian national Expo in Toronto, August 26-28. I'm pegged as a minor guest, so this is extremely exciting :)

    ArtyEwok - Wow I may have to check that out. I didn't know Toronto held things like this, I checked out the link you posted and it says that even Frodo's gonna be there, they probably got him to help promote the LOTR musical that is opening in T.O. shortly after. I bet Gollum has a lovely singing voice.

    Anyways, I'll place my order now so it's ready, I want a signed Tauntaun Jedi sketch-card.;)

    Hee! Tauntaun jedi ;)

    Yeah, CNX/SFX is huge! I'll be camping the artist alley pretty much all weekend, so come and visit. By the way, I like coke with lime ;) Especially with rum, but I don't think they allow alcohol in the con centre :D

Also I will be doing a limited number of sketches and my list will be first come first serve. So bring you sketchbooks or sketchpads or I can provide my own Bristol paper.
