Things have been quiet for me on the Foppet front, mainly cause i'm still working on my house in between working on work. But a friend of mine asked for my help, and it is leading to a special Foppet.
Some of you familiar with the podcasting community have probably already heard of the sudden death of Tee Morris' wife Natalie, leaving behind Tee and their 5-year-old daughter Serena (a.k.a "Sonic Boom"). My own involvement with the podcasting community goes back to 2005, when i chaired my first Balticon (39), and my good friend Paul Fischer suggested we do a Balticon Podcast. It's since been my pleasure to get to know such a warm and generous group of people.
Which brings me back to Foppet. An auction is going on right now to raise money for Sonic Boom's future. All the details can be found here on The Boom Effect site. During my talk with Paul, the idea for a SONIC BOOM Foppet solidified in my head, and as soon as i've finished painting her, i'll add her to the auction.
The unfinished paint job isn't much to see, so instead i have the design i did in Photoshop. The end result will be different of course, but, when Paul said it would have to be LOUD to be a SONIC BOOM, i told him, it just has to be loudly PAINTED....
So go check out the auction, SONIC BOOM Foppet will be there in a day or two, depending on how long it takes paint to dry so i can photo her, heh.
