AwesomeCon 2018

AwesomeCon was in late March this year. I decided to just do one day, and meet Gloria for Outlander costuming, and check out the Artist Alley since I had a couple of friends with tables there. We decided not to bring Elena since it was the tail end of flu season, which wasn’t great this year.

The most surreal part was this – we apparently passed right by the actor who plays Finn in Star Wars – but didn’t realize til right after he went past, because he had a hoard of people following him, apparently at least one of them live casting on his Instagram, which we were on.

It was great catching up with Dane Ault (and his wife/co-author Ashley) of Monkey Minion Press – we met at a previous AwesomeCon and he helped inspired my JWST Artist Event. And he did a really cool JWST piece after I gave him a tour a few years ago. He turned all his spacecraft litho art into a book, which I had backed on Kickstarter. Then he did a really nice thing and actually dedicated the book to me, which was a huge surprise. I didn’t see it til he signed a book for me. So cool.

I also got to Cameron and his wife/partner Rebecca – I met them because Cameron was one of our JWST Artist event artists. (His wife had like, JUST, had a baby right before the event, so only he came, but they are co-owners of Stern Design Works. They do really cool science inspired jewelry and turned out a gorgeous JWST-inspired collection. They’ve kept doing inspired things too, and it was awesome catching up with them. I bought these earrings while I was there, and a tiny JWST diorama.
