Galacon Special: Button’s Mom

Button's mom being pushed back from a door by the excited noise on the crowd on the other side. Sketch signed by EileMonty, JanAnimations, and ShadyVox.

At the beginning of the JanAnimations panel at Galacon on Sunday (yesterday!), Jan and ShadyVox (known as voice of Button) showed a sneak peek animatic of Button’s Adventures, episode 2! By some strange con magic, it became a running gag that everyone would cheer wildly whenever someone said “Button’s mom”. She’s quite popular! ๐Ÿ˜€

At some point, ShadyVox suggested that artists in the audience should try to draw her for the charity auction later that day, and I gave it a try. This sketch was done in my lunch break before the “Secrets of M.A. Larson” panel (30 min, minus eating, plus about 5 min because I ended up being a little late for Larson’s panel). After the panel I rushed to both Jan’s and EileMonty‘s (voice of Button’s mom) vendor tables to ask all three of them to sign it, which they did. A big “Thank you!” to them!

While I could hand in the signed sketch as a last minute item for the auction, it ended up being one of the many items that couldn’t be auctioned due to lack of time. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m kind of sad about that, but it was fun to draw and collect the signatures, so it’s alright. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I still would like to know how it would’ve done compared to the Fanta bottle that sold for went up to 180 โ‚ฌ (seriously — shaken by Nicole Oliver herself, and signed by all guests of honor) and sold for 300 after Perrydotto added her hat (Thanks, Madayar!)

Many more things could be said about the charity auction itself — ever seen M.A. Larson cosplay as Princess Luna? — as well as Galacon in general, but I’m tired and have work tomorrow. You can expect random bits and pieces over the next days. ๐Ÿ˜›
