Well I'll be heading back out to San Diego Comic Con again this year for work... I cannot describe to you how much it kills me inside to have to work at a convention where there are most likely going to be all sorts of shiny Hobbity experiences I'll be missing out on. I live for the hope of random encounters. her David Hasselhoff came by our booth last year... though I wanted to see Martin Freeman. And maybe Dr Who...

I'll soon be undertaking my first trip to England. I'll be in the country for the entire yuletide plus the first few days of the new year. I can't wait to explore the museums, head on over to Oxford for a bit of Tolkien geekery, see Stonehenge in person... and so much more.
Around two weeks ago, I posted notification that I had decided to run a contest to find this year's Yule cards. http://wanderingmage.deviantart.com/journal/Yule-Art-Card-2011-Contest-270283652 The deadline was this week, specifically December 5th. I think the short notice and the holidays put a bit of a crimp in the contest, but we did have three enterprising artists who managed to put together an entry despite the constrained timeline during a usually busy time of year.
:bulletred: After careful consideration this year's winner is :bulletred:
