MegaCon 2015: John, Padme, the Crow, and JET; click for larger image. MegaCon (Orlando, FL) (April 2015)
 
MegaCon is a massive comic book, sci-fi, and pop culture convention held each year in Orlando. This year's guests included Stan Lee, Lou Ferringo ("The Incredible Hulk"), some actors from "Firefly" and "Doctor Who", and a number of comic book artists.
 
This year, John co-hosted a panel discussion with JET of Limn Interactive about the history and development of video games, from programming in assembly language on the Apple II computer to using Poser models in Unity, and even what the future might bring. John also talked about the development of digital artwork, from writing programs to draw lines to early paint programs to making digital models in software like Lightwave and Poser.
 
The panel was scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm, and by 12:45, the queue of people waiting to get in had stretched down the hallway! The room had about 200 chairs, but they filled up fast once everyone was let in. When the panel was ready to start, there were plenty of people standing on the rear and side walls, so we estimated there were about 250 people in all.
 
One of the fun things that happened on the way to the room was that they met a lady who dressed as Padme from "Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones". She even helped us pass out flyers to people as they came into the room!
 
To see more photos of MegaCon, our panel, and lots of cool costumes, see John's MegaCon 2015 Gallery on Facebook.

The Interservice/ Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) promotes cooperation among the Armed Services, Industry, Academia and various Government agencies in pursuit of improved training and education programs, identification of common training issues and development of multiservice programs. The conference held in Orlando focused on modeling and simulation and how these are best used in training.
 
John attended the event this year and met with a number of modelling and simulation companies to discuss industry trends. Some of the larger attendees included Lockheed Martin, Booze Allen Hamilton, Boeing, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman, and General Dynamics. John was also able to spend a little time with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Florida Governor Rick Scott.

Click to go to the Oxmarket site. Artwork displayed at the Oxmarket Centre of Arts
 
Vanishing Point is pleased to support the Hidden Artists fundraising exhibition at the Oxmarket Centre of Arts in Chichester (UK) which runs from July 2nd to 14th 2007. (link opens in new window)
 
Some of the Vanishing Point team contributed a few pieces of postcard sized artwork, and we also encouraged members of the CGI community to contribute their own artwork to this great fundraising idea.
 
Each postcard only has the artist's name on the back, so the buyer doesn't discover who the artist is until they buy the image for 15UKP each ($30). Each image sold raises money to support the Oxmarket's educational work with children.
