Paul Blake, Brian Muir, and Tim Lawrence - All Con Dallas 2016

All Con is a convention that is small and personal and doesn’t just do celeb signings or comic artists.  It might never grow but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. They can keep their core fans happy and work on improving the show each year.

This year, I also most overlooked this con.  A fellow hound encouraged me to show up and I’m glad I did.

Brian Muir is the artist that designed Darth Vader’s helmet. You have also seen his work on the movie Alien. Both pieces are very iconic.  The Alien ‘space Jockey’ used in the movie was about 30 feet tall. 

He traveled with his wife and they took this opportunity to see more of the US. They drove through the southern part which they found much different that England.

Paul Blake signed and he did not shoot first.

The last pick up at this event was Tim Lawrence. He wore the suit that he created for Ghostbusters.  He has a very fancy signature.  He uses a paint pen to sign and then takes a hair dryer out and dries the photo before handing it back.  Considering that most people don’t do paint pens, it’s a nice gesture to his fan that might smear the autograph before it dried.
