Probably my new favorite pop artist:


This is an example of Haas’ art (from his website) — TOTORO!

A couple of other accomplished artists with their own distinct styles:

Ray Fawkes


Tony Moy (梅)– TOTORO!!

Jed Henry — inspired by traditional Japanese art (hmm… a theme here?) TOTORO!!!

Over the Garden Wall (Cartoon Network)

War Boy (Mad Max: Fury Road)


Masters of Unreality: Heavy Metal & SFF (SciFi/Fantasy)
(AKA My Favorite Panel Today)

These three authors/metal musicians discussed their inspirations, influences, writing habits, views on popular vs canonized literature (and music,) etc.:

Myke Cole (Gemini Cell: A Shadow Ops Novel)
Michael Fletcher (Beyond Redemption)
Peter Orullian (Trial of Intentions)

One point raised by Cole resonated with me, although he was referring to contemporary music. He encouraged the American music fans to be conscious about how American music industry has always been in the “exporting business” and how we miss the gems from around the world if we just stay inside the US bubble.


Michael Fletcher, Myke Cole, Peter Orullian
