  1. Sounds like a great con. I really feel for you, Alan, in your encounter with the too-serious artist; I’ve certainly managed to say exactly the wrong thing to people I admire. Oh well, no one died.

    Or did they?

    My best con experience was working as a volunteer with a show organised by friends in the Eighties, UKCAC 86, and being given the task of ‘babysitting’ the guests in their green room. This also involved getting the con art pieces drawn. It was fabulous to sit with the likes of Gil Kane, David Lloyd, Carl Potts, Bill Sienkiewicz and Frank Miller. Nice people. I was a tad in awe of Mr Kane. You can see some of the art they produced here http://www.momentofmoore.com/page/2
