Star Wars Plane

Look, we all know that there’s been a lot of hype and merchandising surrounding the release and relatively long theatrical run of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But we’re use to that with Star Wars films, right? We know that when each new movie or TV iteration of the franchise hits screens big or small […]

Where Are Those 14 Pages?

Since my post the other day about lessons I learned during 24-Hour Comic Day, I’ve had a few people ask me about the story I was working on during my attempt at that artistic challenge. As I said, the story is based on something that happened when I was teaching in Japan (it’s a story I […]

August Wrap-Up . . . September Overview

What? September 1st? Holy cats! Where did August go?!? Okay, it started with Gen Con. And after that I was on the east coast for another ten days visiting family. And since I got back to Seattle I’ve been heads-down on a series of projects that were close to- or over-due. It certainly explains HOW […]

Gen Con Schedule

I am stunned, quite honestly, that it’s the middle of August and time for Gen Con already. Where in the world did the summer go?!? Well, there’s no time to ponder that just now. I’ve still got a bunch of details to sort out before I head out to Indianapolis … but I DO know […]

Stan!’s Gen Con Schedule

Yes, it’s that magical time of year again where I post my Gen Con schedule for the 3.5 people who care. (One person THINKS they’re gonna care, gets halfway through the list, and suddenly realizes that he doesn’t care AT ALL.) I’ve got a good mix of seminars, events, and open time to schmooze … […]

Tap … Tap … Tap … Is This Thing On?

Okay. It seems like just after getting back INTO the habit of making semi-regular updates … I fell back out again. Oh well. If at first you don’t succeed … So, here we are … late July. Usually this is the time when I tell you all about my experiences at Comic Con. However, for […]

Stan! at NeonCon 2010 — DISCOUNTS!

I’ve just finalized plans for my trip to the upcoming NeonCon 2010. I’m going to be a guest at the show, making presentations, leading seminars and workshops in their CreativeU program, and maybe even running a game session or two. NeonCon runs from Nov. 4–7 at the Tropicana hotel and casino in Las Vegas, and […]

Follow Me At Gen Con

My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. In a relatively small number of hours, I’ll be in Indianapolis and diving headlong into Gen Con. If you look back at the last few posts, you’ll see what I’m planning to do and where I’ll be easiest to find at the show. I won’t be […]

How I Spent $200 At Comic Con

At the end of last weekend, I took a couple of photos of the loot I brought home from Comic Con. I was on a pretty tight budget, and in the end I was pleased with all the things I resisted buying. But, looking at my haul, I found it hard to reconcile that relatively […]

Getting Ready Is The Hardest Part

I’m getting ready to go to Seattle for Paizo Con this coming weekend … and at this point I really NEED the break it’s going to give me! In order to be able to spend a week or so traveling, visiting friends, and attending the show, I’ve had a fortnight of “crunch time” making sure […]
