SoonerCon 2007 Publicity Materials

Here are some publicity materials for SoonerCon 2007, "Visitors from Beyond."
 The above is an over-busy early flyer.

 The above is a fun concept which could have been executed better, but I still like the idea.  Talk about a postcard flyer!
Another over-busy design which wasn't distributed.

Thanks for stopping by!

SoonerCon 2008: Pieces of '08 Relic

I bought this lovely at the Charity Auction for SoonerCon 2008.  It's still my go-to mousepad for PARD (Pretty Awesome 'riting Device), on which this little Blog Post is being crafted even now.

Here is a cleaned-up version.

Sad but true … the brilliant concept art was another product of my meagre graphic skills.  Pirates plus sci-fi must result in an alien's skull, with an eyepatch, on a skull-and-crossbones.  It's only logical … right?

1990 - Soonercon 6 Program Book, Part 1

SoonerCon 6 took place on November 2-3-4, 1990, at the Central Plaza Hotel.

Our fine cover art is by Alicia Austin.


Our charity was the YWCA Battered Women's Shelter, the same as SoonerCons 4 and 5.   Our total given to our charity this year was $2000.  And we were thankful to help.

 At the time, Paul Cherry was President of STAR OKC.  Leonard Bishop was con chair, with vice-chair & dealers wrangler Gerald Burton.  You can read the other credits yourself.
 Lois McMaster Bujold was GOH; Art GOH was Alicia Austin, with Toastmaster William F Wu.


Well, that's it for this installment, friends.  Don't forget to get your still-discounted Pre-Regs, at SoonerCon.com!

February, 1986 Galactic Gazette

In February, 1986, SoonerCon 1 was still being planned.

 This cover is a parody of the Dewar's Profile ads.

Mike Powell was the newly elected President.

 Tamara and Mike Hodge were STAR OKC Treasurer and SoonerCon Chair, respectively.
 This page begins a continuation of a long saga by Bob Higgs, called Remember the Heroes.




















The above page of filler by yours truly is one of the few products of my typing for which I cannot imagine a purpose.  Just filler.  Bleahh.

Sorry to leave you with "Bleahh," but that's the final page of the February, 1986 Galactic Gazette.

See you next time.
