SDCC 2012 – Part 3

I met the inspirational Felicia Day again, the first time was at the Starfury event in London earlier this year. It was at that event I was introduced to her work and discovered what a hard working, funny and down to earth person she is!

Don’t throw away that scifiartist.com card I gave you! lol 😀 I’ll be doing a Felica painting in some shape or form very soon so watch this space!

Earlier in the day I’d been to the Geek & Sundry panel. There was a big queue to get in and even then I missed the start and was stuck at the back, However it was a very funny panel and worth the wait!

SDCC 2012 – Part 2

I attended a quite a few talks and panels.


Jonathan Ross was involved in an interesting panel discussion about the writing process. It turned into an entertaining interview with other guests appearing in turn, followed by a Q&A session. Beards were compulsory 😀

I attended 2 panels at the Nerd HQ organised by Zachery Levi, star of Chuck.

Sadly my pictures of Lucy Liu, RZA & Dave Bautista are all blurred. After the panel they did a poster signing for the film.

SDCC 2012 – Part 1

SDCC 2012 was as hectic as expected. I return from San Diego motivated with new ideas. I’ll talk about those later but for now here are a few pics from San Diego Comic-Con 2012.


I accidentally hit a pigeon on the road. Sorry pigeon. A couple of years ago it was a rabbit or 2.
