One of the really exciting parts of the weekend was that John Scalzi was the Guest of Honor. Artist Daniel dos Santos decided to draw a portrait of Scalzi over the weekend. Luckily, Peat was in a prime viewing location to take pictures of the portrait as it was being created. He snapped a series of photos every couple minutes, and I created this nifty gif of the proceedings:
Saturday, 2pm, Harbor I: Guest of Honor Interview and Portrait Painting In this unique mega-mixed-media event, our Official Artist Daniel dos Santos will both interview and simultaneously create a fabulous painting of our Guest of Honor John Scalzi. We considered requesting that John also be suspended facedown in a tub of Coke Zero and Daniel ride a unicycle, but you can only take fan service so far.
