in which @fablor teaches me to wing it...

for those very few of you who don't know who the Fabulous Lorraine is, she is Neil's right-hand assistant. I am his travel/LA assistant/merch queen, the west-coast Pepper Potts.


I just spent the last few days out here with Lorraine after C2E2, helping as she got Neil on that elusive ashcloud-blocked aeroplane over the sea.
We traded secrets and assistant-ing tips. Her best advice to me, just write your entry, it doesn't have to cover everything, just get it up there...because, as you may have noticed, i like to detail...everything...& time is at a premium...



The weekend in Chicago, Neil's CBLDF event, flying to Minneapolis, next Neil event in Stillwater, all of this has been super- documented. However. since I fly tomorrow and go straight into shipping the beautiful Molly Crabapple/Neil DESERT WIND prints, i am going to do a mini-post..


so! a quickie on Quiche's advice...



batmobile!


CBLDF!!

(Charles, Brady & Cheyenne)



The amazing Tony Harris, who illustrated Neil's In Reilig Oran poem for the Fund, came to the booth and signed and signed...











Here we are at the Arie Crown theater, where Neil & the sparkling-like-a-twilight-vampire Jim Lee signing the 100 WORDS prints that we donated to the CBLDF.





here is a clip of Jim introducing Neil's talk (the camera shakes in the beginning because i was so fan-girl-thrilled):



The next morning, we flew to Minnesota to do Neil's next event in Stillwater, and FabLo picked us up with both dogs in the car:





I will leave you with a screen shot of Neil holding one of the full-color DESERT WIND prints, they are going to ship out to you as soon as I get home...

Nice!

Do you know whether Relig Oran prints will be available for those of us not at the CBLDF event?

Batmobile!

It makes me feel better about being a blithering fangirl last weekend (over James Marsters) to hear that you, working as you do with Boss and all those musicians can still be starstruck.
