I coordinate artist contributions for the GenCon charity auction, basically getting artists to do dice bags and other items to be auctioned for Charity. I've been doing it for about 5 years and I have to say the response has always been tremendous: artists giving their time and talents to create some really unique articles to raise thousands of dollars for charity. But I have to admit, I sometimes run into the strangest of all dicks: The successful dick. I have one particular artist who is very well known and has had a lot of commercial success and he blows me off all the time. I one time confronted him and he knocked something out quick in front of his staff, but you could tell he really didn't want to do it. His comment was basically I hope I didn't lose a commission from someone else while doing this (3 minutes tops). This type of dickishness is just weird to me, you are successful, at the top of your game, people idolize you but you are apparently still a dick because you want more. I'm not surprised when someone is a dick when they aren't doing well, no surprise, life is tough and sometimes it's easy to be a dick when things are going rough, but I just don't understand the successful dick. That being said, when you are at GenCon if you are trying to avoid dicks, stop by the artist area. I can say working with them that it's an area filled with generosity and talent! ...And hey, Happy Birthday and thanks for not being a successful dick, you are living the creed!
