Pensacon was probably the most fun I've had a a convention thus far. I took smoke breaks with Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), ate hotwings with Tony Moran (Michael Myers from the original Halloween), drank with John Dugan (Grandpa from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) and Comics legend Mark Texiera. And there were so many other wonderful Guests, friends and fans!!!
I met my favorite author, Joe R. Lansdale, who I'll soon be working with.
Jumping ahead to the now..
About three weeks ago I recieved what I'll refer to as a 'gift'. I won't go into great detail, but let's just say someone made a promise to me years ago, and she fulfilled that promise and reached out to me hours after her death in a car wreck. It has changed me.
This morning I recieved the news of artist HR Giger's passing. He's always been an incredible inspiration, and it grieves me to know he's gone.
Another incredible artist who greatly influenced me, Patrick Woodruff, has also passed away.
I'm beginning to feel older.
Take care of yourselves.
