Norwescon III—Live Dalek, Julie Dillon, Throne

This is a wrap-up of my time at Norwescon—the region’s largest science fiction and fantasy convention for writers. 

Here’s another Dalek. This one was live.



We also had Lady Sif.



She criticized herself for lacking a shield, but I said, “You look great. You don’t have to apologize for anything.

The artist guest of honor for the convention was Julie Dillon. Back in January, I posted that her cover for Upgraded was the best science fiction cover of last year.



So when I heard that Julie Dillon was going to be at Norwescon, she was my chief reason for going. Her session in which she showed samples of her art and explained her process was fascinating. Afterwards, she gave away six of her artbooks to some of us who stayed around and asked her questions.

I managed to get a picture with her.



And here’s a video of her Kickstarter project.


Finally, here’s the picture you will see in your mind even when you close your eyes tonight. Please choose the best caption.

I'm thinking a better caption is when Mark was sailing on old sailing ships back in the 1800s: "Did someone call for the ships barber?"
