Fantasy Convention Travels

Look Out Kids, Veronica is Coming!

A small girl chases a flying red dragon. A small red dragon carrying red peppers. A little girl in a white dress running like crazy.

The 2009 convention season has crept up on us like a thief in the night, and it’s first crime is to steal Veronica off to New York later today for the SCBWI Winter Conference. Her attendance at this munchkin-friendly creative get together is her first official venture into the world of childrens’ illustration.

Even her newly-redesigned website MoonShines has gone a bit whimsical, adding her favorite kiddie creations beside her fantasy and action adventure works.

Fantasy art, however, cannot be denied, so Veronica will yet again be in attendance at Origins. Her latest works will be on display in the art room, but she will no doubt be wandering throughout the room and convention, cavorting with the other artists in attendance with reckless abandon.

Finally, we will redouble our efforts to attend Con on the Cob this year. It might be our imagination, but it seems as if we don’t attend at least one of Andy’s conventions this year, it will be impossible for us to ever catch up to his rapidly expanding list of events.
