|To quote Bender, I'm back baby! So the last several weeks have been really hectic for me 'cause I've been traveling and away from home more than I was here. But I've finally run out of vacation time and now it's time to catch up on all the back log. So yeah, we're still on the air. And to start off our restart (see what I did there) here's a little story and some Fan Art to go with it. Back along about Labor Day kaspired took a little road trip to an anime convention in Sacramento where a few famous names were scheduled to appear. He took along a portfolio with some of his drawings and, sparing the long boring tedious details such as the three hour drive (which in that part of California at that time of year would equate to about 5 miles (8km) ), he scored five, count 'em five, autographs on his drawings from such luminaries as John Dimaggio, Billy West, Maurice Lamarche, Lauren Tom, and Hynden Walch (Ok, not Futurama, but the voice of Starfire from Teen Titans Go - still cool). He says “They were expecting posters, maybe the occasional comic book or trinket but when I slid a drawing under their Sharpies, all five had the same reaction: They paused, looked and looked again. This wasn't the token condescending "Ohhownice..." They really looked at them, and even commented on them. John even showed my drawing to people behind the desk!”. Kaspired says all four are now framed and hanging on the wall behind his desk. Damn, he's good. |
Spaceman130 has also been busy with a couple of things. One is this Fan Art of Munda.
And the other things that he found might require a little explanation, since it takes us back a little ways. A long time ago, in a reality far, far away, we ran this little photo contest called Real World Futurama where we tasked you the viewers to send us pictures of real world things with Futurama related names. And you found some fun and interesting stuff. Well, Spaceman130 found one more (well, ok, actually he found two, but it turns out we already had one of them ). This find is a street in Toronto Canada named after our favorite bureaucrat.
