Artist William C. Cope
One of the best things about Wonderfest is reconnecting with old friends - AND making new ones. And that's just what happened during the Rondo Award celebration, when I met William C. Cope in person. William won BEST FAN ARTIST in this year's Rondos, and introduced himself while we were posing for a group photo. We were already Facebook friends, but it turns out he also lives in Murfreesboro TN, just down the road an hour or so from me. We discussed staying in touch and working together on projects in the future, as well as what Drive-ins are in the area (Murfreesboro is about to get a brand new one soon)
Today William surprised me by sending this AWESOME portrait of Dr. Gangrene. It was a complete surprise, and I was floored. Very honored to say the least! You are one talented fella, William - the Rondo couldn't have gone to a more worthy candidate!
Be sure to check out his Facebook page and see his amazing work for yourself - and give it a "like" while you're at it, cause his stuff rocks! Thanks again William!
