Default My newest find - I LOVE this Drawing!

I just received the October 2000 issue of SFX magazine. It has an interview with Anne in it entitled Dragon Writer of Pern. (love that clever title!) And when I opened it up to read it, this is what I saw..........




Isn't the drawing a kick!!! Now I've got to go read the interview, just couldn't wait to post the picture!!

I agree- that is funny! I saw that picture and said "Away She Goes". What a great find. I hope the interview was just as much fun!

The only thing you can't see in the photo is the little tiny hairs on her legs! It's just too cute! I love the purple dress with the slip showing, you really can't see the slip, but it's just above her knee. And the over exagerated middle bits are a hoot! (sure looks like me in that area!)
The article is really great too.
Anne sort of does a retelling of how she became a writer and how she came to write about dragons. One interesting bit is that she wasn't planning on writing a series of books. One just didn't do that in those days, really. She says that if she'd known she was going to write 16 books on Pern that she'd have set the background a bit more circumspectly. She goes into the Ireta books about how she knew she was in trouble when the editor asked what a periodic table was. But she continued with them because she needed money. (I'm very glad she went thru with the books, because Lunzie is my favorite character! Sassinak being a close second.)
Something she showed the interviewer was CG footage of the TV show, this was before the plug had been pulled. I'm jealous! I wanna see that footage!
Great article and wonderful cartoon! I'm so very happy I found this magazine! I highly recommend it!

That's a great picture, although high-heels don't really lend themselves to flying!

Wonder if the library has a copy....

Aha! Is that the magazine where it comes from. I have found this cartoon somewhere on the internet, once (probably taken off later) but didn't know the source.

Pray tell, dear Becky, where and how you bought this magazine?

Well found!


As for the TV show. When at Anne's she showed (because we requested it) some trailer for what I think was the TV show that was to be produced by Alliance/Atlantis, so that might be the stuff she is talking about.

At AMCF I met someone who claimed to have that (or another) trailer and he agreed to make a copy for me. That never materialized however; like several other thigs that different AMCF members promised me...

I got it off eBay about a week ago. It was a buy it now. Cost me $12 + postage, but well worth it now that I see the cartoon. I think it's so cute!
Thom, I agree the high heels don't lend to dragon riding much, neither does a dress!!! Love the scarf trailing behind her too.

Hans, you lucky thing you (Cheryl and Anneli too, since I gather they were with you?) getting to see the trailer! Makes me wish I'd bought the Pern figures that were for sale on eBay once, just after they canceled the tv show. But I wasn't sure they were real from the show or even if it was legal to sell them.
Sorry that you didn't get a copy, cuz I'd be asking you for a copy now!

Becky, nice find !!! The cartoon of Anne riding her dragon is very cute, to bad it was only a green and not a gold. I would love to see the article that was with it.

Cheryl, oh, too bad you missed the trailer! That's a shame. But very glad you found a copy of the magazine. I still get a kick out of it whenever I see it!
Am thinking of trying to go thru all the interviews in books, magazines and the tape I have (tho have to find a cassette player) and trying to put a chronological order of events and explanations Anne gives. Hmm, but that's similar to comparing Rescue Run and we know I wasn't successful at that. But then this is slightly different....interviews are shorter and I'd only have to add the differences.....might be talking myself into this.....lemme think it over. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.............

That's a cute cartoon picture of Anne flying on a dragon.

I think I remember seeing a photo of Anne sitting on one of the dragons used for some bluescreening shots for the series (that never happened). Maybe this cartoon is made from that photo.

But maybe my mind is playing trickson me?

`Hmm, Nef, I don't think so but you are touching a subject there that still smarts. I know there were pictures of Anne on that mockup dragon on the old Alliance Atlantis site (that had the first forumboard on it) but HORROR I seem to have either forgotten to copy all of them or I seem to have lost them (think the former).

The only two pictures I (still) have from that series in which Anne is riding that dragon in front of the green screen are the two below. I'm sure there were one or two wide angle shots... does anybody have those?? *hopeful*

It was indeed those pics that I was talking about, but I remember seeing more of Anne than just a torso shot.

And as to the colour of the screen. I don't think they use blue screens anymore, and green seems to be the new colour, but I can't help refering to all that type of screens as blue screens.

I remember that I actually wrote to a Danish tv station to tell them that when the series came out they just have to have the series on their channel.

They're still blue-screens but it has to be a colour not in the foreground action - in a few scenes in HP&tCoS they actually used a yellow screen *g*

I have a couple larger and wider ones, but those are of Lessa I would assume, not Anne. Though I can't figure out how to post them, there's no "Manage Attatchments" button

Not activated in here, Spiff. You either need to post the pics into your deviant art account or another picture account, like Photobucket or Image Shack and paste the IMG code they provide automatically in your posts. Both services are totally free.

Would like to see the pics you mention but the ones I meant were indeed of Anne on the mockup dragon, I think it was a contraption made of wood and plastic that could swivel in a point.

I love Anne Interviews. This is a nice drawing. Most of them only have a black and white picture, if they have a picture.

Uhm, Maelin, it was Spiff who posted the link not me Unless you meant the earlier ones of Anne

Now I have seen the pics I know the link was posted on amcf long ago, too. Right, Spiff?

These are very nice (Thanks!) but still not exactly the pics I am looking for. These weren't up on the original Alliance Atlantis site I think...
And I am fairly sure there were one or two pics like these with Anne on that prop dragon.

Hans, I remember the ones you're thinking about. But I wasn't smart enough back then to save the pictures.

I had saved them -- saved every page of the site -- but lost them in the great data loss of Dec 2004.
