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! 😀
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. 😦 I’m kind of sad about that, but it was fun to draw and collect the signatures, so it’s alright. 😉 I still would like to know how it would’ve done compared to the Fanta bottle that
sold for 180 € (seriously — shaken by Nicole Oliver herself, and signed by all guests of honor) …
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. 😛
