- I would venture to brag about my 2,000+ notification hoard, but I just read another friend’s journal update who has 12,000. *salute*
Welp. Mr. Emmett Brown remains hanging on my living room wall and I’ve done just about all a procrastinator could do to avoid swimming in that sad, miserable subject again ...such as drowning my disappointment by binge watching TV episodes on Netflix and shopping new art supplies. Hey! Some people find comfort in shoes. Others find comfort in food. I find solace in new pencils and markers. It’s a artist thing I think most all of you reading will agree is tried and true therapy.
Well there’s no sense in prolonging the evitable. Christopher Lloyd
sadly and unavoidably had to cancel his appearance @ the Denver Comic Con
. Now this in itself is not the chief cause of my funk and pickle. No, not at all. No, my squinch resulted from the fact that DCC neglected to inform anyone of this fact until only a few days before the starting day!
As a matter of fact, I was never told by DCC at all and I’m fairly convinced we would have gone on not knowing and sitting stupid in Colorado had I not been notified by the BTTF group members hosting the appearance that I was to be attending with! They had received the cancellation from Lloyd’s agent.
Now personally I’ve gone to my fair share of conventions, participated in them, contributed and the like. Cancelled appearances are a real and even normal possibility. I understand it. It happens. I get it —But you just try to explain that to your two super excited children; one of which is handicap and spent most of the whole month leading up asking if it was time yet. I didn’t think it was humanly possible to feel so bad, like some toddler who just had their Disneyland vacation dream ripped away!
There is a rainbow however. All is not in vain. We’ve been working closely w/ the agent for a suitable makeup date in the near future, so I will in fact still be turning over the work that I did and making the presentation. It’s a good thing too. Gives me a opportunity to restore my ‘Awesome Mom’ title
In closing, there is a VERY LIMITED
supply remaining of the exclusive DCC numbered prints of Christopher Lloyd as ‘Doc’ Emmett Brown
. I would strongly
advise anyone who is interested in owning one to do so as soon as possible! You can find detailed information in the shared Deviant below: ~Shinju
