In a previous post, I had the little maple leaf icon in the wrong location.
We are, in fact, at table 316:
From a Dragon Con tweet:
“It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to one of our own, Comics Director and beloved Dragon Con friend, Thom Trainor.
We will miss you very much and wish you a safe journey to your next chapter beyond. Rest In Peace friend.”
There is an “In Memoriam” here.
Thom was the one who invited us to the show and it’s quite a shock that we won’t be seeing him again.
He had asked that I do a Regency Elf commission for him to bring to the show.
Rachel Reeves at Dragon Con has let me know that…
“We have received many requests from artists to do something special on Thom’s behalf… we will be collecting donations at the show of original artwork to auction off during our 2019 show with the proceeds going to the American Heart Association in his honor.”
Here is mt attempt at a Regency Elf for Thom that I will be donating to the show:
And, because each page doesn’t have pesky “characters” on them, we have kept the price of each page under $900.
Similar to past sales, each page will be revealed over the course of an hour on Charles Costas’ CAF Site.

I was going through the prints for the show and noticed someone had ‘de-faced’ one of them.
(I’m looking at you, Alfonso.)
This is as close as we got to seeing the Rockies…
…Dink was a great little, fun, funky show…
…Kristina and Justin came by with copies of their wedding invite that I had done the illustration for…
… I signed a couple for them and they signed one for me…
…many thanks to Charlie and all the staff and volunteers at Dink!
Coming up next:
I was asked to contribute to an interesting project, THE BEAUTIFUL BOOK OF EXQUISITE CORPSES.
A unique concept which is best described HERE.
Which, if nothing else, raised two thousand dollars for the American Refugee Committee by the contributors donating their fee.
There is quite the list of contributors. Not the least interesting of which is Moon Unit Zappa.
And coming up soon:
We’ll be there, how ’bout you?
