So Motor City Comic Con's this coming weekend (13-15 May) -YAY! And Matt Busch and Alex Buechel will be making their annual appearance there - YAY! So that means there's a new tribute picture going out to them - Unfortunately, <sad> nobody else I know will be going to MCCC </sad>, so this is going to them directly, by digital means. Three days too early, because I'll be leaving on vacation tomorrow, and won't be coming home until the MCCC is over.

[To a certain person: If you do decide to go after all, there's the full-sized file uploaded to my dA gallery, if you want to wear this on a shirt.]

A nod to Matt's Indy Jones parody videos for his awesome "You Can Draw Star Wars" instructional videos, *and* his epic "Hollywood is Dead" poster series from the past year. (The house in the background is based on the house from one of Matt's earlier paintings of the undead). I was initially going to have *Alex* being chased by a horde of zombies drawn into the picture by Matt, but in the end I decided this would be cleaner and simpler, and probably a whole lot funnier. (Apologies to Alex for the transformation, but he did kind of ask for it by posting that zombified photo of himself to Facebook...). (Is a tribute a tribute if it involves your favourite Star Wars artist being chased by his illustration come to life? I dunno, LOL!).

And of course all of this resulted in much hilarity concerning the pronunciation of my second name! Ah, the Chinese and their bizarre words, hideously unpronounceable to all but native speakers. (Although whether I even *qualify* as a native speaker is open to debate, haha).

Thanks! Alex was pretty excited about the picture, I think: he immediately reposted it to his FB account *and* changed it to his new profile picture (which I think is hilarious, because his last one was that cartoon of him with the interrogation droid from last year).

Too bad you couldn't make it; hell, too bad *I* could never go either!

[You *do* realise that if Matt features all those cartoons I drew of him in the next episode of You Can Draw Star Wars, that video they took of *you* might just make it in as well? I'm just sayin'. ;)]

And that, of course, is what happens to my friends who don't stop to consider any hidden agendas I may or may not have when I send them to certain places where cameras may or may not be in abundance. ;)
