Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends meeting celebrities.
Today is another example of a celeb friend meeting another celebrity. Creator K Lynn Smith is my friend and fellow creator Allison Spooner is her friend. The picture is from a comic con.
K Lynn is an artist and writer from Michigan. I first met her at Motor City Comic Con and have bugged her ever since. Aside from her great work, I love following her on social media. She's fun, funky and a bit quirky, all in the best ways. Following her, you'll see wonderful art and have a lot of fun.
Despite attending hundreds of comic cons, I somehow have not met Allison, but I hope to change that this year. Allison is a writer. According to her on her website, her flash fiction work has been described as "have been called, “brilliant,” “disturbing,” engaging,” and “perfect for anyone with a slightly twists sense of humor…” That's right up my alley. Besides, if K Lynn likes her, she must be good.
I love this picture for several reasons. Obviously, it contains two awesome creators and people. It also shows two folks just having fun. I love when celebs of any sort pose with other celebrity friends at conventions. It shows they are just like everyone else. They like friend encounters, too.
