Stargate Worlds Con Report
Report from Stargate Worlds Convention 22-24 January 2010 at the Thistle Hotel, London.
Having been to three of the four preceding Pegasus Conventions, I have to resist the urge to refer to this one as P5!
But it was completely unlike the others in several ways. Firstly, numbers. With only around two hundred attendees, it was a much smaller, more intimate Con. Ages ranged from a young lad of about 12, there with his mum (- the actors were all careful to check whether there were children present before launching into risqué stories or using "adult" language,) to a load of pretty 20-something fan girls, middle aged old farts like moi, and a lady who must have been a great-granny. Oh and there were men of various ages and waistband sizes there too!
At the "Meet and Greet" I was lucky enough to sit at a table with some folks I've met before and some new friends too. One chap on our table was celebrating his 50th Birthday and this occasioned much handshaking and good wishes from the gu

Weekend to End Breast Cancer

For the past 5 years our very own $Moonbeam13 has been involved in supporting and raising money for The Weekend To End Breast Cancer event in Toronto.

She has done this in a fairly quiet and discreet way so we felt it was time to shed a bit more light on what exactly she does for this great cause.

To give a bit of background, in the past 4 years this organization has raised over 60 million dollars in donations and through this has made some landmark strides in advancing the research on breast cancer, which claims the lives of close to 50,000 women a year and about a quarter million women diagnosed per year.

This money does ma

How Much Lead Is There In Your Pencil?
I have been totally absorbed in the various techniques that can be employed to produce the most amazing images using pencil, charcoal, chalk, or even pen.  I am currently on the go with several projects, each of which I pick up and carry on with to the next stage bit at a time, as and when I get those rare spare moments between the computer, resting, eating and night-fall!
Some of the artwork produced here at dA in this media has truly amazed me to such an extent that I felt I'd like to do an article in which to expose some of those amazing visual displays that I've enjoyed so much here in the privacy of my own home, and try to get further exposure for the artists involved, as all too often ('though not always) I have discovered that the number of favorites or comments to them has been incredibly low.

Since it's nearly a year since I last posted a Journal here, I thought I'd wave at you all.
Although I have been posting photos here the artwork just wasn't...coming. I had two pictures in the works and they just weren't progressing, to the point that I didn't want to look at them any more.:bleh:
Then I signed up to the Atlantis Big Bang over on LJ and was lucky enough to be given a story by one of my favourite Fan authors, Icarus-who has previously inspired me to draw the Sunset Sheppard (Story-Tanlines and Dogtags) and Skater Boy (Out of Bounds).
And I got John and DRAGONS! So I've finally got my art-mojo back!
:iconserena-inverse: and I were lucky enough to go to Japan for two weeks in March (hence all the photos! :camera:)and I have written reports over on LJ (must post them here but they have loads of photos embedded, not sure how to do that...)and we had a Blast over there. We went on a "Manga Tour" which included loads of places like the Tokyo Tower, Shibuya, Akihibara, Nakano Broadway, Toei Animation Studios and the Ghibli museum. We also went to Mt Fuji, Miyajima, Kyoto and Hiroshima while we were there, so we did the cultural thing too.
The worst bit was coming back. Almost twelve hours in a much-too-small-seat and I couldn't sleep at all!
RL is proving difficult; Colonel K was "given"(at gunpoint) early retirement and is now being a househusband on a small pension while I am working part time on the checkouts at Asda to help keep us afloat. Jobs for 50-something IT specialists are not easy to come by, these days. Poor Serena is *still* looking for a proper (scientific) job, nearly 18 months after graduating. Most of her year-mates from Oxford are either unemployed or working in service industries too so she's not alone. But what a waste of all that talent and enthusiasm.:raincloud:
It's particularly galling because our Government is banging on and ON about how well paid graduates are and how they're going to tax them/make them pay more. Oh *$%£*! :pissed: :pissed: :pissed:
And I worry about :iconmitchlux: who is just starting his second year at Uni. We've told him that it's a valuable life experience, yadda yadda, but he must be wondering how he will fare when he finishes too.

Hey, I just founded a Kavan Smith group because he definitely needs to be appreciated more!
You got such fantastic Lorne fanart here, is there any chance I could get you to join? Or, if not, at least collect your Lorne fanarts there?
