BIRD CON2007 Promotional Flyer by darkspeeds BIRD CON2007 Promotional Flyer by darkspeeds
Heya everyone! = )

I hope that by now that most of your within the DA/Sonic Community are well aware of a another awesome meet-up in London on the 8th September 2007! :D

The past week had been pretty hectic in terms of the comic because I wanted to finish everything before any longer than the first week of September. The good news is that I've sent the CD containing all 60 pages to the first book just yesterday to my editor in Sydney and he will review and give me feedback on it before getting it printed/published.

Nevertheless it was no excuse for me not to do something about this special event that is taking place in London once again. I've decided to make a personal promo flyer, one that is practical so that they can take it there with them to get it signed and take home to keep! ;)

For more details on the event stayed tuned to this website kindly created by Mike (aka omg_m1ke!): [link]

For info and discussion at Sonic Stadium Message Boards go here: [link]

Let's wish our good friend Adam Tuff (aka T-Bird) an awesome and respectful farewell as he will be heading to Japan at the end of September to tackle an English teaching job for a year. I'm sure his job will inspire him and have him take back an unforgettable experience to be shared with friends and family! :D Keep in touch buddy! *thumbs up*

Well, dammit! I guess I was on the bus when this was published! Fortunately Svend and Rory printed me off a copy, so I got my BirdCon2000 flyer printed off there! Thanks guys!

Elson, I am lost for words once more...even though you're on the other side of the planet, you still have a way of touching the hearts and souls of us over in the UK. This is a fantastic piece of work that I will have to get framed. It shall grace the wall with it's magnificence!

You're too cool dude!

Your most welcome on the BirdCon2000 flyer Adam, I'm amazed by the amount of feedback I got on it. Doing this was something to remember by. ^^ Watching that video of you fellas down at the pub was entertaining and what was really cool was to see those flyers printed! XXD I can't believe that! XD I shall continue to do what I can do be involved in the community spirit of things buddy, there is so much you can learn from Sonic the Hedgehog that it continues to grow as we mature! ^_^ *thumbs up*

I'm 40% done with the Fei fanart, I think this will probably be one of my best deviations since I've spent 1 hr on lineart and 3 hours of colouring but no-where near done yet :XD:

Aw, gadzooks.

I've got 12 hours to get to London? Egad, I'll never make it.
It's a shame, I'd really like to meet you in person (the Great Elson Wong, eiii!), but I'm only 15 anyhoo.
Ah well, have fun! Hope you get to meet an array of interesting people, and maybe hear some feedback on Ashworth!

Aww, I wish I coud go.....being 15 sucks! You can never go to the bigs events for two reasons: One, you can't afford it, and Two: Even if you could, your parents wouldn't let you. Oh well, I'll find a way to buy your comic, even if it KILLS ME!

This is a very well designed flyer. I really like how that group shot came out, and the background is really nice. Everything is is well organized which is a big plus. Your shading and character designs really shine in this. Sadly, I won't be able to go to the event since I don't live in London. I'm sure it would of been a lot of fun to go though.
