Usually, I’d be writing a long and hopefully entertaining journal about the whole amazing show. Below Left: I made the little flyer on the right to highlight the Small Gods I had on display, and to suggest that the Art Show might contain unexpected surprises.
Crystal Huff was happy to see us, even before her bid to host the 2017 Worldcon in Helsinki Finland so spectacularly crystalized. The night of the contentious Hugo Awards, we dined with Mark, Baize and Tempest – eventually shutting the slightly seamy (if delicious) Teriyaki House down. As we took down the remnants of the art show, we couldn’t help but notice this tiny bird. There was ever so much more of course, but my clients are no happier with my delays than I am, so it’s back to work for me! I am very grateful to Jean and Rob Carlos for their fine opening dinner, and their hosting Cards Against Humanity. I anticipated the removal of most of the fair buildings, and the reclamation of that land as park, but I looked forward to exploring those changes. Instead, because of the record fires surrounding Spokane, staying at a hotel across the waterways and park (which had seemed such an idyllic notion just days before), proved a fascinating challenge when the going got tough.
But the sad truth of Pratchett’s Alzheimers diagnosis had just been revealed, and Pratchett stayed home.
Maps are a familiar sight in our field, but lately a number of stories have placed maps and cartography at the core of the stories themselves. I will be the second presentor of an Ig Nobel winning study before I must skedaddle to my own presentation of art. Highlights from Ig Nobel prize-winning studies and patents, presented in dramatic mini-readings by luminaries and experts (in some field). We are always trying to depict the alien, but how far do you have to go to be truly out of this world?
We live in an Age of Miracles and Wonders – the art treasures of the world, past and present, are at our fingertips! I am here to critique your work, answer questions, and possibly make career recommendations.
January began with preparations for Lee’s big art show of Pin-Ups (featuring more than 3 years of literary calendar art and a few others). The opening presented a splendid chance to meet up with many of our friends as they mingled and enjoyed the delicious cheesecake (and other hors d’oeuvres, natch).
The month ended with a trip to Seattle, where many colleagues and co-conspirators were seen, much fabulous food eaten, and several adorable pets petted. March began with the departure of dear friend Dan Cottle – bound for the wilds of distant Massachusetts. A few weeks after the big Pin-Ups show first appeared, it moved to the Radio Room, site of the original Pin-Ups show some 5 years gone, and we got to spend some time with models Becca and Saamanta into the bargain! Our friends Tara and Accalia came to stay with us from icy Winnipeg while they attended Rachel Brice‘s intensive belly-dancing masterclass. We opted for Health Republic (an actual public health co-op) as we sorted out our coverage in light of the ACA.
With all our guests returned home, we headed back to Seattle that Lee might participate in panels and hang artwork in the show at Norwescon.
Having done some type design for the von Trapp Family (4 of the grandchildren of the original Sound o’ Music bunch), we ventured out to a local bookstore to see them sing. Lee created a coloring book and a couple Golden Tickets as part of the party favors for his birthday party and costumed whing-ding at the end of the month.
Despite the three weeks of traveling, we still managed to fill the last weekend of the month with guests from all points, and luncheon with Stephen, Nicolle, Rajuli, Alaina, and Rose.
We traveled with Tracy traveled down to Salem for a splendid autumn party hosted by Kim and a couple of adorable dogs. Mina’s lovely houseparty provided Lee an opportunity to see some old friends, and meet the marvelous Christine Watson at last. Back in Portland, we treated ourselves to a concert by Postmodern Jukebox which is currently the most popular band playing in our house. Jaym proved herself to be an especially amazing friend by sacrificing her computer to Venetia’s lust for Civilization V. Our year ended full of parties and friends and we hope to see much more of both in the coming year. Harry Palmer: Starstruck with Elaine Lee, Mw Kaluta and James Ratcliffe is not quite finished, but we made some serious headway! Aaron McConnell, Patricia Smith and I worked with Rob Heinsoo, Jonathan Tweet and Robin D Laws on 13 True Ways, the fulsome second book in our game 13th Age. It was a great pleasure to work with rising star Elliott Kay on Days of High Adventure and Natural Consequences. What can one do with odd Lovecraftian suggestions (in this case – Nyarlathotep in an Amusement Park) from a boisterous crowd? I plan to continue the series as I have since then – with commissions, and as inspiration strikes.
My friends Brian and Scotia opened their store A Muse N Games in Winnipeg, and this was the logo I designed for their store.


I was commissioned by Aeon Magazine to do a piece to accompany their interview with the great Alan Moore.
Although I missed this year’s Ambercon NW to return to DC for the World Fantasy Convention, I again designed their t-shirt, this year an Edward Hopper homage from a gas station in shadow. I learned a lot doing this painting and especially appreciate the kind embassies of Mary Anne Mohanraj and the second pair of eyes Todd Lockwood brought to the party! Wonderful Boston artist Kristina Carroll invited me to participate in her Month of Love, for which I painted a daily Small God, and then again in October to participate in the Month of Fear. When the metaphoric smoke cleared, all was right with the world – and so many of the good people won! But also for the thorough convention reportage that they (and the marvelous Carol Berg, Jim Wright, Vandy Hall, Stacy, and so many others) have written.
But once begun, Pratchett’s oeuvre proved hard to put down, and after a couple decades of reading, I was asked to be the artist guest of honor at The North American Discworld Convention.
Nothing was off limits to Pratchett – everything could be questioned, altered and enjoyed.
Maps serve as portals to other worlds, cartographers remake the world in a map’s image, and mapmaking itself becomes a means to discuss the distance between perception and reality, between the map and the territory. When you can’t draw from a model, how do you create a believable fantasy creature or technological object? Come watch the entrants perform short vignettes to show off their costumes, and see if your pick matches that of the judges.
The weather was perfect, and a good thing, since Mina and Jamie would arrive from DC the very next day – both couples intent on the HP Lovecraft Film Festival.
She had pondered it for the better part of a year at Lee and Phryo’s suggestion and decided it was the best idea ever. And while we’d seen them perform with Meow Meow at the Schnitz and Pink Martini in Pioneer Square, the little solo concert was particularly sublime.
And while we were too busy with work to attend, Lee did put art in the show and pop by the odd party. We must again thank the marvelous Jessie and Annabel for hosting, and Ang and Gail and Alanna for abetting!
At this point there is precious little we need to acquire, but the siren call of the annual Laurelhurst Yard Sale is irresistible and beautiful objets de art have to live somewhere.
Seeing the Bad Idea Bears try to sell Venetia (sitting on the aisle) on Scientology was especially delightful!
Time was shorter than we’d have liked, but so much good food (at Verde Cochina and Laurelhurst Market) and such lovely sights (the Falls, the Hatchery and Bonneville Dam) were taken in! This time the highlights were largely sculptural, but the exhibit of Andrew Wyeth still lifes was a refreshing break from the Euro-snobbery that so defines the National Gallery.
Jemisin getting a tattoo of the blue lotus design Lee rendered from her description of it in the Dreamblood Duology. While Lee’s Willy Wonka seemed to go over well, who can compete with Totoro in any form?
The following week we flew out to DC for the World Fantasy Convention in Lee’s old suburban Virginia stomping grounds.
And since she had experienced a flat tire en route from Richmond, we put her up that night in our Crystal City hotel room.
The game is addictive as can be, but can also easily be used as a teaching tool to show why the world is in such an ongoing state of disaster.
And this year marked my 10th Anniversary of painting the full season of posters and the program cover for Northwest Children’s Theater.
The spread below required that both Rob Heinsoo and I be at our best in collaboration, passing ideas back and forth, the better to ensure that the final piece has the ability to surprise and intrigue the reader – something that I fear happens far to little in most game projects. The latter cover only occurred to me after I spoke with Elliott about a completely different design, and I was delighted when he preferred it to the one we’d agreed upon!
They wanted a relatively simple editorial style, and the piece should have been simple, but the research took 2 days! The wee black rabbit and the Power Station sign are homages to Edgefield (where Ambercon NW is held).
This month marked my return from Europe, and I was definitely the better for the inspiration I found there. Upon reading and relating to much of the message therein, I made her the Small God of Asking.
And while I could single out Small Gods as my favorite of his works, I was never sorry I read even one book of his.
Panelists will discuss the ways in which maps and cartography have escaped from the endpapers in recent works of fiction. Answers will be based on the expertise of the presenters, who may have a different expertise than the researchers. And in the next shot, the gorgeous Kiana Phi hangs out with us, and with Miss Kim Stanley Robinson for whom she posed. Doctor Mel’s research on children and their cognitive development is quite interesting, and Lee did a little design for her upcoming book too. And it’s one thing to get your caricature drawn at the mall, but another to get it drawn by the astonishing Bill Plympton!


We didn’t plan on having our luggage kept overlong in Brussels, but when we arrived in DC, our luggage did not. NOTE: Some of the presenters will be selected from nominations made in advance by you the fen! Sadly, Lee missed meeting up with talented singer (and author) Rosie Garland, the wife of Lee’s friend and collaborator, Aly Fell. The Barkers kept us in high style and we used the opportunity to see everyone we could amid our wild ride around and through the Beltway. As she navigated the complex and surprisingly meta narrative, Venetia had some bad life experiences that left her bitter. We found the private Kelly Collection as inspiring as the Belvedere’s more famous one, and spending quality time among the Pyles, Wyeths, Leyendeckers, Cornwells and Schaeffers was a real honor! I’d drawn them months earlier, but manufacturing can be tricky, and I had no expectation that the timing would synch up so well. And not only that he got it, and was taking a rare moment to speak truth to power, but that he was simply better at all of it than I was. This included the Kate and Heather Hanna at Kate’s home in Annandale, and Helen Svensen in Raljon (Actually Landover. Lee, by contrast, enjoyed his golden life so thoroughly he couldn’t bear to dip back in for results virtually guaranteed to be less pleasant. The way Pratchett used all the hackneyed tropes of fantasy and fiction to tell true stories about all the things that matter. Helen kindly donated one of her late husband’s shirts for me to wear, and directed Venetia to an amazing shoe store. After our stop in College Park to pick up a frame for the wedding gift, we found Ellie at home in Tacoma Park, where we patted her adorable wee rabbit and dined alfresco. A  Due to the format of the B of A email, and the copious amounts of "filler" statements they use; the series is a bit difficult to follow.
Then, we made the mad dash through the dark heart of DC, arriving at the wedding exactly on time. A  I usually write correspondence to fit the lowest common denominator, but how low can one go?A  Although I'm willing to bet that if I reverted to primal grunts, and what could be considered a primitive, yet well understood gesture even in our modern world; that someone on the other side of the Banking Center counter might have their mind bulb flash, if only momentarily. I have a few of my portion of the email, as I cut and pasted it into my regular email service; don't know how they lost theirs. They relate to the Merlin Teller, and how a fully paid balance of mine is being carried on their books as an outstanding balance on their system for months after I paid the account in full, probably sometime in October of 2007. I was repeatedlyA  told this same information by various B of AA  staff that I spoke with in person, numerous times, in various locations, but I did not record the conversations and wish that I had. When first asked how and why they would do that; as it didn't sound logical or legal to me, I was informed by more than one staff person at more than one branch that it was expected to be carried for 16 to 19 Additional months!A  That is some kind of accounting system.
A  That didn't sound accurate, as I was able to access the information on both the old 3732 account AND the new account until approximately January of 2008, and the phone rep I spoke who made arrangements for a balance transfer from another VISA Account I have at another bank for me on either April 3 or 4, 2008, said he would have copies of those 3732 statements mailed to me that day, at no charge to me.A  (I have received an envelope at my P.
Box from B of A; I'll expect the contents are the account statements, but won't know for certain until they are forwarded to me. A  Bank of America?A  I'm almost on their side for this particular incident; as I know that avoiding lawsuits and payouts is high on their priority list. Unless some staffer slipped up, yapped out my private account activity, and didn't take time to note it in my file.
Please do your employer a favor, and provide me with the written documentation that I have repeatedly requested.A  Thanks for your cooperation. Stockton: Please forward this email to someone up the ladder who can provide WRITTEN confirmation and information on who requested, and was provided, information on my Visa Card ending in 3732, activity in July or August of 2007. Rose, Good afternoon and thank you for contacting Bank of America in regards to account documentation. For B of A to be carrying its customers former credits and debits on their books for 16 plus months would be an accounting nightmare, in addition to being out of compliance with several Federal Banking Regulations. Please adjust all records statingA A  any balance due on my past and present Visa accounts to reflect the current credit balance only.A  Also, please update day ph. A  But do note that when I asked him a specific question about them, he couldn't answer it. A  And he didn't volunteer any details on the account maintenance that he appeared to have access to.A A  A A  This message is not flagged. A Can you please provide me with your 16 digit credit card number so I can review your account?
Gordon: The minimum payment is 1% of your balance and any finance charges and applicable fees.
The system will not allow the rate to change until the cycle closes and a new cycle starts.
