    DragonCon 2009

    Several people (including myself) from the CA Atlanta sketch group will be attending DragonCon this year. Anyone else planning to attend? There is the possibility of a Saturday evening sketch meet in the works. Speak up!

    Wow, sketchparty at Howling Loveboys HQ! Sounds cool. The con, of course, goes on all night on Saturday, with concerts, parties, etc. Any thoughts on doing it Sunday night, when most of the con has wound down a bit? I don't want to miss my chance of catching the Shat at the Hyatt bar and plying him with drink until he does a rendition of Rocketman for me.

    I think some of us are going for Saturday night precisely because some people will be only for that day.

    I have no idea where this is going to be. I know we want to meet someplace close by, if not in one of the con hotels, and where we could actually stay put without getting in the midst of the traffic. Oh, gods, the traffic in some of the hotel lobbies and public areas.

    There hasn't been serious discussion on location, yet. Trevor, is your place within walking/MARTA distance of the con?

    Sweet! What time would be best?

    edit: I guess the best thing to do would be to meet up at the con and then travel together.

    John Bridges>>> i know right! the Priceline Negotiator is gonna be there!

    all>>>
    So we're talking about leaving con, and heading to trevroars?

    For the un-MARTA-initiatized that entails:
    • get 2 MARTA fares put onto a paper card (if you don't already have a Breeze card, each fare is $1.75, for a total of $3.50)
    • Go to Peachtree Center Marta Station, descend extremely long escalator.
    • Take a South Marta Train
    • Get off at 5 points station (it is the next stop)
    • Get on an Eastbound train
    • Get off at King Memorial Marta station
    • go under bridge / Mattress Factory Lofts is right there.

    I'm game with meeting up and heading over. Meet outside a hotel or at the Peachtree Station? Any idea when?

    I'll be in town but not sure if I can make it, and won't know until that night. Is there somebody I can call to see where everybody's at on Saturday night?

    This is so exciting! I'd be happy to pitch in for hiring a model, but I'm totally content to doodle and party

    lavhoes: I sent you a PM.

    I've got friends coming in from out of town who I don't want to abandon, but I might sneak away from the con for at least a little while for this.

    All / Asatira>>> with the way this is shaping up, probably meeting up at peachtree center will be the best thing to do, since it will be relatively less crowded than the main con areas, then we can all MARTA IS SMARTA over there together.

    TyLenoLavhoes>>> Awesome news! can u bring baby alligator back from the big easy for us to draw? you know, one of the cute ones that makes clicky sounds. awesome k thx. but seriously, will hopefully see / draw with ya when yr in town! the phonumerals are the same as phobefore so feel free to holla back to touch base with the guggs.

    claxtonian>>> Want me to call some potential models? That would be awesome, and i don't mind doing the calling to the model list and so forth, but there'd have to be an RSVP situation as it can get kind of expensive (going rate ~$20 an hour, probably be best to figure a bit extra since this would be on a saturday night.). I don't know about costumey elements, but maybe we could just kidnap a costumed con-goer and bring them along? Pfffft. Felonies. Just hanging out and drawing is just fine too.

    grackle>>> Congratulations on your kilopost! and thanks for taking the initiative with this thing! i can't wait!

    im going to do my best to get the word out there about this lil event
    i would love to have a model there and if people want one but are broke due to con travel i will gladly cover it
    things you should bring
    alcohol
    food or cash for pizza ordering (cards aint a big help splitting a bill)
    drawing suppplies
    furry porn

    not many rules just shoes off, dont trash the joint and clean up after yourself
    ill provide munchies coffee music lighting ambiance and some howling loveboys
    if you want to paint bring a dropcloth and your own turpentine
    power strips could be useful too if your using a laptop but im sure we can make do
    maybe il get a projector from the office and we could do some demos
    please let me know what aspects you all are interested in and if i havent already brought something up that you think would be cool start posting
    this will be fun
    i want to fill my 1200 sq feet with art creation people
    get on it! hahaha
    and yeah thx guggggggg
    if you cant find costume models ill see what i can dig up
    and just let me know if there is one you have worked with before who you think is good and would enjoy themselves
    so what time are we looking at for this 6 ish? 530?
    when does the show close sturday?
    (if anyone knows how i can get a pro badge it would be way better than shelling out 50 bucks as we dont have a booth this year haha)

    Do electric howling loveboys dream of day-glo tube socks???

    I think 5:30-6:30ish would be great. but i'll probably bring my own odd something or other to eat and hold off on the yummy 'zzza. since it'd be earlier, we could easily get in a solid 2-4 hours of art time in before heading back towards con for weird *con parties.

    Okay, cool. I'll go ahead and put a call in to this one model i have in mind...she's really great and unbelievably cool too. Very professional and amazing at being still for long poses. And i will ask also if she has any costumey type stuff, which i'm guessing she may well have plenty of. more information forthcoming – Same Guggey channel – Same Guggey time – Stay tuned – more en dash abuse coming soon!!!

    I'll probably just be working in inkwash and guoache. But then maybe, i'll bring up some marble to sculpt? Is it going to be okay if we have a wall of your house removed to get my marble block lifted in by crane? Also you might want to rent speakers because the sound of chipping stone will be kind of loud. cool?

    hmmmm... that's all i can think of for now.

    Grendel: Thanks for the PM, now I've got both you and ms. guggs saved to my phone!

    guggenmaneuver: I will certainly do my best, though no guarantees the bebbeh gator will be gator-shaped. At least I'll be there, maybe! Just gotta double-check with the lady to see if we can make it.

    trevor: That all sounds awesome. My best friend is actually a model, I'm trying to get ahold of her to see if she'd be interested. She was going to DragonCon anyway (last I checked) so she'd be in the area.

    update: i made phone call to said model. she's out of the country until 24 august. and i left her a message but it's more or less on hold until sometime between Monday and Wednesday when she gets back in town. found the models database so finding someone else, in case she can't do it won't be an issue.

    hip hip hooray!

    The site says the pocket program schedule will be posted on the 24th, so we'll probably have a better idea of things Monday.

    trevor, we probably met last year at the booth I was talking with Brian Glass for a bit about some freelance work. Did you say White Wolf doesn't have a booth this year?

    The con website doesn't have the schedule posted yet, but as Asatira mentioned, the PDF will be available, soon. I'm just impatient.

    um
    I almost hate to say this
    but I am both a costume designer
    and spent most of my college years as a model

    I would be willing to take turns
    and provide some costuming of an historical nature

    I have skin and am not afraid to use it
    for a good cause

    if we dont get the model that would be great but then again having a model isnt neccessary i just wanted to make sure everyone has a good time
    if nobody wants to do life drawlin then thats fine too but i dont want to spend cash on a model if nobody will draw her/him
    so let me know
    we could also you know
    just hag out and have fun hahaha
