Shaenon: I'm going to be a guest at Arisia in Boston on January 14-17. I drew a set of margin illustrations for the program book. These are a couple of samples. The theme of the con is "Mad Science," so I've been doing a lot of illustrations of the scientist characters from my comics.

Channing: I think the Lee/Unity one is basically canonical.

Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

Chibi mad scientists put the awwwww in awesome!
tune "Happy holidays" (Irving Berlin, 1942, although the correct title is actually "Happy holiday")

Chibi scientists!
Chibi scientists!
They are mad and they are evil, but they're cuter than a bug
Chibi scientists!
Chibi scientists!
They're the Class-A threat to humans
Everybody wants to hug

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Awwwwwwwwwwwwww.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Kay: Dang, you beat me to it.  How early do you expect me to get up the day after Christmas??  (Well done, BTW)

(TUNE: "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas, Don't Be Late)", Dave Seville)

Chibi, chibi sci-en-tists!
Wrench and scalpel in their fists!
Doctor Lee has research grants!
Doctor Jones has Science Pants!

Fools who laughed, we'll show them all!
(Lee, she built a living doll!)
They're on Santa's "naughty" list,
Those chibi scientists!

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Cool -- I like these not-quite-so-chibi versions better than the "baby-cast" we've seen to date.
Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

@Ed: I live in the Pacific time zone and I have insomnia, so I ususally write these at night.  But it was a treat to wake up to your Chipmunk Song.

Sor Cyress (sorcyress) says:

I have never in my life been so excited for a con booklet. Usually I just never glance at them and recycle them three years later. 

Dave Corbett (mr_dave) says:

Is it just me, or is anyone else seeing what appears to be spam about designer artillery?

John Sears (john_sears) says:

I'd love some designer artillery.  All my cluster bombs just scream '2009' and I'm ashamed to say I got my mortars off the rack.

Paul K (mnementh) says:

...and THAT is why you must never allow a monkey to drive a dumptruck through the french quarter, no matter how many pairs of rubber pants he has on.


Life is a highway. Bring a spare.
