You know how I said I would get better about telling people which cons I'm going to? Well that was a lie, because Steamcon V is this weekend, by which I mean like right now, and I haven't told anyone that I'm gonna be there.
Long story short, see you guys maybe at Steamcon??? I'm pretty viciously sleep-deprived at the moment, but despite that I'm going to head over now to set up my art show nonsense before the con opens. As for panels, here's what I'll be doing:
- Steampunk Art
5:00PM - 6:00PM
Come meet some artists who represent steampunk to see how they imagine, design, and create beautiful works of art!
Matthew Dockrey (M), Aimee Stewart, Claire Hummel, J.W. Kinsey
- Steampunk Video Games: The Year in Review
6:00PM - 7:00PM
Our panels of experts guide you through this year's video game offerings.
Julie Haehn (M), Claire Hummel
- Getting into the Gaming Business
8:00PM - 9:00PM
A panel on getting into the gaming business-both table top and computer/console.
Claire Hummel (M), Julie Haehn
- Steampunk: Ancient Egypt
11:00AM - Noon
There was a strong fascination with ancient Egypt in the Victorian era which influences everything from graphics to fashion and architecture. It would make sense that this aesthetic would find itself in a Steampunk universe as well.
Claire Hummel (M), Lori Edwards, Margo Loes, Carrie Jo Lawrence
- Steampunk Reinterpretations of Pop Culture, Myth & Legend
Noon - 1:00PM
This panel will cover everything from concept design, illustration to costuming.
Claire Hummel (M), Andrew Fogel
...WHEW. Let's do this.
