I got my second-ever A* fan art! And it's...boy. From John Waltrip (click it for a bigger version):


Is that sharp or what? Gratuitous lens flare and everything! : D Pretty snazzy body suits, too--should keep 'em looking stylish right up until that black hole in the background spaghettifies 'em or whatever. : oo

As you can probably tell from the illustrative skill visible there, John is a long-time professional comic artist; in fact, my first encounter with his work was just over two decades ago, in the Robotech II: The Sentinels series that he and his brother, Jason, drew--in theory my copies of that are still safely in their poly pags in a comic long box somewhere in the crawl space under my brother's house. The Waltrip brothers are sufficiently established to merit their own Wikipedia article, and there's also their web site, where you can read John's very own sci-fi strip, Xenocosm. AND you can catch his work five times a week in the webcomic Guilded Age.

You can imagine then that him contacting me out of the blue--with fan art for A* no less!!--came as a real kick in the pants--uh I mean if a kick in the pants is AWESOME. Thank you very much, John!

Or just self-awareness?

Selenis can't find her purse, let's hope the drinks were on the house.

She's lucky, that one was I think.
