A desktop image of the sketch (close-up and full-length) that comic book artist *J-Scott-Campbell drew of me dressed as his character Jess Jennings from "Wildsiderz" after my cosplay won the "Lovely Ladies of J. Scott Campbell" costume contest at Dragon*Con 2010!

The original sketch is one of my most precious possessions.

I still absolutely love this!

BTW, Did he say any reason for why Wildsiderz never finished/is in limbo?

I just thought of something that would be cute/fun: if Campbell had drawn a mirror image of you and Jess, slack-jawed and pointing at each other in a 'Parent Trap'-like style of, 'Hey, you look just like me!'

Aww, you're right, that would've been really cute! =)

Yep! J. Scott Campbell's been my favorite comic book artist -- and one of my favorite artists, period -- for about a decade, so it was literally a dream come true to own not only one of his original sketches, but a sketch drawn of me as one of his characters. That's about as high as you can get on the geek-out factor! ;)

I have some fave comic artists and there's a british one in particular who drew transformers comics here in the UK when I was a kid which got me into drawing and there have been chances to meet the dude at conventions but I have no idea if I'd actually want to meet him cos I dunno if he cares that he inspired a lil kid in the eighties to draw. Probably a lot of the readers of that comic were too. I dunno. Bleh.

Yeah, conventional wisdom advises us "Don't meet your heroes" because who they are in reality may not live up to what they represent to us in our minds, but I've been so pleased with every one of my "heroes" that I've met... they've all been every bit as kind as they are talented, and they've been very gracious and generous with their time in spending it with a geeky fangirl like me. =) I can certainly understand your ambivalence, though!
