Artwork I did for the Pennsylvania's Annual Anthrocon 2003 Souvenir Program

In 2002 , I received an email from Sam Conway, one of the organizers of the annual Anthrocon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He asked me if I'd be willing to be a Guest of Honor for Anthrocon 2003. Unfortunately, I had to decline due to a conflicting schedule with the San Diego Comic-Con. He replied, "How about 2004?", adding that the convention would cover all the expenses for my beloved wife and I. Well, how could I say no to that?

A few months later, Sam asked me if I could do a little drawing (advertising Anthrocon 2004) to be included in the 2003 program. Initially, the theme of the 2004 convention was going to be "zoot suit". So, I came up with the little graphic on the left. Then, they changed the theme to "summer games" and apologetically asked me if I could have another stab at it. The drawing on the right is what I came up with.
