I went to The Hub Convention on Saturday, I hadn’t planned to go as I’d decided I couldn’t afford the time or the money but when last minute $20 tickets for the Saturday went on sale I gave in to temptation 🙂 I was pretty broke though so I couldn’t fork out for photos with the guests or autographs…ah well, you can’t have everything.
Here’s the schedule from the day:
10.15am Nicola Scott – comic book artist for Angel comic “Spotlight on Illyria”
11.00am RD Price – Director on Angel
1.00pm Jonathan Woodward – guest star in Buffy, Angel and Firefly
2.30pm Jewel Staite – Kaylee from Firefly
4.30pm Workshop – Writing/directing workshop with R.D. Price
Nicola was lovely and I found her really interesting, her story of how she managed to break into the comic book industry was quite inspiring. I haven’t bought comics in years but I’m starting to think I might explore some of the current crop.
R.D. had some good behind the scenes stories to tell, sadly his workshop was cut short as we were out of time – so he came and had coffee in the restaurant across the road in order to continue talking to people – SUCH a nice bloke!
Jonathon was hysterical, and cute! He’s such a clown and had us all in tears of laughter. I didn’t take many photos myself but of the few I took here is my favourite – Jonathon responding to a request for a contribution to the “Tightpants” thread on Serenity Oz.
And here is the pic that was being taken OMG!!!!
For more photos and generalised fan-type squeeing go here 🙂
This evening a number of my friends wound up going to the pub with RD and Jonathon once the convention schedule for the day was done – woe is me with the no money and the family responsibilities 😦 For the next one I will make the time and save the money – I’ve got till October I believe!
