I had the good fortune to go out for a drink with the Perl-Meister when he was over here filming "Mutant Chronicles" and even then he was moaning about how he'd been waiting ages for some portrait you'd promised him!
Glad he's finally been put out of his misery, Tim! Great piece... he won't be disappointed.
Change of subject: I hear you've been invited out to a Con in Valenciennes, Northern France, right?
Well, if it helps to sway your decision into the affirmative, I'll be there!
Come on over, it'll be great to see you!
