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!

Yeah I think it's just too late. I don't think my current adult self would even care that much anyways but the lil 80's kid version of me still hidden away in my brain would probably geek a bit but it would have been more ideal if I met the guy way back then when I was a kid and he was still drawing those comics. Apart from a brief bit of work for the recent Transformers UK magazine for the movies he doesn't even do comic work anymore being more a graphic designer.

So who else have you met then? I wanna see a photo of you as Chloe posing with Claudia Black. That would be awesome beyond awesome.

I've met a lot of awesome people this past year through conventions and such, but the big three were J. Scott Campbell (my favorite comic book artist), Chris Sanders (my favorite animation artist/director), and Bree Sharp (my favorite singer/songwriter). These are all people whose work I've admired for at least the last decade or so, and all three of them were absolutely wonderful to meet and talk to in person. I feel incredibly fortunate.

I'd love to meet Claudia Black, too! And Nolan North. Maybe if the video games keep doing well, someone will start Uncharted-Con! ;)

Yeah, Nolan North in interviews and behind scenes stuff always seems like a fun, likable guy you'd love to hang out with much like Drake himself but minus all the crazy adventures and treasure hunting.

I had to look up them Sanders and Sharp peoples as I hadn't ever heard of them. I'm familiar with J. Scott Campbell though even if I'm not a fan as such. Is cool you got to meet them all. I'm not sure who I'd like to meet. I'm a bit pissed off that Sir Ian McKellen is coming to do an interview and performance in my lil village where usually NOTHING AT ALL INTERESTING EVER HAPPENS and I didn't manage to get a ticket in time =( As someone who's trying to get back into acting and drama after ten years of health issues and living situation problems seeing him live would have been a huge thing for me as he's a legend on film and stage. grr...
