- At long, long last, finally --Finally!
-- Christopher Lloyd, Doc Brown, was able to receive and take home the painting that I had originally designed for last year’s Denver Con. In fact, the numbered prints created from the master he received is still referred to as the 2015 DCC 30th Anniversary exclusive. At the same time and just as equally important, I was able to put a check mark on my bucket list for fulfilling a very long time childhood wish of mine to meet & greet w/ this incredible man, someone who has been a favorite actor of mine for countless years. Thank you, Wizard World! Thank you, Mom!
And I ‘do’
need to thank my mother. It was because of her that I was first introduced to Lloyd before he even became ‘Doc’ as she was a fan of the late-70's, early 80's sitcom ‘Taxi’ where he played the lovable and laughable dimwit, ‘Reverend Jim Ignatowski’. I admit I was much too young that original first time around to grasp the adult appeal and themes of the show. I made up for that later on down the road when I found ‘Taxi’ on Hulu. I get it now, mom. I get it.
A secondary piece that I also brought with me to the event that was autographed by both Christopher Lloyd and Back To The Future creator, Bob Gale, was of another work I shared here recently of the 'realistic' version take of the young, 1931 teenage Emmett Brown featured in the BTTF Tell-Tale Game and more recently, the official BTTF comic.
P.S. I was asked many numerous times @ Wizard World Philadelphia if prints of the DCC exclusive was yet still available. Yes there are, but the supply is short as they were numbered limited editions so if you really are interested, I would hop on that lickety-split. Just contact me. ~Shinju
