Sooo, I'm back from the second JIB-Con in Rome and it has been AWESOME, even more perfect than last year! Again, thanks a lot to all the staff, they're made of patience and awesomeness. Every actor said that the JIB-Con is the best Con they've ever attended and, come on, I like to repeat it (and I'm so glad to do so!).
Since I had to talk in English sometimes (uuuh, painful and embarassing, but at least I wasn't the worst one), I won't ask for help for this post. Be kind. But, seriously, this year it has been way easier to understand the panels and...people in general. Let me guess, watching shows in their original language ACTUALLY helps a bit in the long run...?
I had a so damn amazing time with yawedzoro , nimloth87 , aredhel87@dA and IceFennek@dA in Rome! This year I was way calmer than the previous one, due to fact that...well, this was my third Con after all, and everything was really well organized. In addition, I'd say that being with four funny and nerdy mammals made everything more special (but argh, at last I hadn't managed to steal Fox's pizza, since she hasn't bought A PIZZA. THIS IS NOT FAIR AT ALL) <3
I'm too lazy to find and repost all the funny moments and I'd like to remember this Con as a little isle of peace, with no hurry and stress...So let's just remind you what you've probably already seen everywhere on the internet ->
The must-watch Jensen/Misha "When Harry Met Sally" Retold (two idiots. I was crying. Die laughing wouldn't be serious, right?)
I'm inexorably in love with Richard Speight Jr (but you already knew it. He IS the Trickster, he gave us candies FOR REAL *O*) and Rob Benedict. Richard is crazy and marvellous, Rob the cutest man on earth ;u; Oh, and then there is Mark Sheppard. Ah, yes, I loved all the Doctor Who crossovers in these days XD apart from Mark Sheppard, that huge fanboy, a lot of people seemed to share my love for this fandom <3
KUDOS to yawedzoro who managed to ask the best questions ever in the various panels. Like, for istance: "Misha, can you please say 'Hello guv'nor, fancy a cup of tea' in you best British accent?". Good lord, I loved her. And him, of course, who moked us making all the people from UK repeating that sentence, adding excited noises. That bitch XD
And....I...uhm, I made my first children book and I'm actually pretty proud of it [also because I wasn't expecting it to turn out so well when printed]. Me and yawedzoro worked on it for a while and at last we have been able to give it to Misha. Of course, it's for him and his baby <3 I'll probably post some photos all together, but I can assure you that Misha seemed sincerely touched and amazed ;u; I would like to show you his reaction but...argh, I can't XD
That's it. I had a great time, I already miss the atmosphere and my friends and...well, stay tuned, I might or might not edit this entry with new useful links <3
So, uhm, to sum up...well, maybe I'm not so much in the fandom like before, but really, I can't ignore all these incredibly idiotic (in a nice way) people. Be warned.
I drew this for Mark Sheppard (and I gave him a copy, of course) but, as I said, he is the main attraction of the JIB convention, so...well, I used this as a autograph carrier 8D
Thanks to sealpantomime for her great help, I wasn't sure about how to draw this ;u;
I already posted the next drawing in the last DW/Sherlock-related post, but since it's related with Mark as well...
This was a quick upload on dA from the JIB Con. I know, everybody was probably waiting to hear news about Jensen, Jared and Misha but...well, this is year my attention went mostly to Mark Sheppard, actually (mostly, just mostly) XD
Since he will be in the next two episodes of DW and he said that "his doctor" is Matt, I thought to draw Eleven for him in the free time among one panel and another...gosh, he's such a fanboy, you have no idea..
At the cocktail party I gave this to him and he seemed to really like it. He also added "Well, I met Matt Smith two...three....four...four, yeah, four days ago!". Yes, Mark, I KNEW IT, THANKS A LOT. Damn him.
