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.

Seth Green and the Robot Chicken team also did a Nerd HQ panel which I attended.

The Buffy 20th anniversary was packed out. There was a lot of girly squealing at James Marsters and Nicholas Brendan dropped an F-bomb!
Woohoo! Eliza Dushku has chosen my artwork “Faith vs Kakistos” for her Facebook page this weekend! Sadly the credit for my hard work has gone to the mysterious Buffy “Anne Summers”
Just to prove I did the artwork here’s a snapshot of me earlier today with the oil painting in question.

To most of you out there you’ll be wondering what the fuss is about, but anyone who is a fan of Joss Whedons Buffy the Vampire Slayer and especially the character of Faith played by actress Eliza Dushku will understand my small Woohoo for the day!
When Faith was first introduced she had a past which followed her to Sunnydale. The ancient vampire Kakistos had killed her watcher in front of her and he was now after her blood. I was inspired to do a Faith painting after watching that episode and this was the result.
Being a Star Wars fan, the Faith storyline was as close to a good person struggling with the temptation of the dark side as you’re going to get. The jealousy, misguided friendships and gradual alienation from her true friends was played perfectly by Eliza and still holds up today as some of the best TV out there.
Anyway – ass kissing almost over. Thanks Eliza for choosing my artwork for your facebook page. You’ve made a Sci-Fi Artist very happy!
Here is a close-up of the main part of the painting.

I have some more Buffy related art gathering dust. Seeing as this one has caused a stir I may dig those out and post them soon. 😀
