Lined in Lead

I'd like to share a few photos from the opening reception for the Lined in Lead: Works in Graphite gallery at Gallery Nucleus.  I ended up not taking as many photos as I intended because I was simply having too much fun. It's available to see until April 11 if you are curious.

I especially wanted to go because my favorite artist, Michael Zulli, from the Sandman comics by Neil Gaiman was in attendance. He  illustrated The Wake in pencil and it is gorgeous.  When I first read Sandman I tried drawing his illustration of Daniel and it was awful.  At the very least, it made me appreciate Michael's talents even more.

I knew I was in the right place that night because I was there with some of my favorite people in the world, there was free booze, at one point Kyle Cassidy threatened to beat me up because of my Hello Kitty purse, Michael Zulli complimented my octopus necklace and suggested I eat calamari for my sushi dinner, I got to flip the bird to Brian C. Janes on a couple of occasions and we were regaled with the unexpected perils of an illustrator at dinner that I shall not discuss here.  :D

Support the arts!

SC3 is a group of video game lovers that put together events that include play time with classic arcade games, a chance to trade or buy classic games or to listen live to 8 bit musicians performing on their Gameboys.  

I attended the most recent event at Gallery Nucleus where I played Marble Madness to my hearts content and heard new songs performed for the first time from the wonderful 8 Bit Weapon.  My only sadness is that I did not find a copy of Roger Rabbit for Nintendo.  Oh well.  Enjoy the photos!

Fezzes, Amy Ponds, Ten, Elevenses and scarves galore!

Gallifrey One hosts the best Doctor Who convention in town.  For me, it is THE best convention.  I have been to many, but there is something different about this one.  I don't know if it's the fact that it's run by fans, or that the celebrity guests seem to have as much fun as the attendees, or it's all about the creative cosplay or perhaps it's just because Doctor Who has the best fandom around.  Whatever it is, I am a better person to have experienced it.

Here are a few of my favorite things...
