Classes start tomorrow. Laaaaaaame. 
I have three classes and a technical writing internship. I started interning about 2 weeks ago at a non-profit organization. So far, it's going well. There is much work to do but the directors are very kind.

Wanted to post a con-report from Mechacon complete with pictures, but doesn't look like I'll get around it. The abbreviated version: I went. I saw. I ate a fancy dinner. I con-quered. Well, not exactly. I got a little ill on Saturday night and didn't make the VIP party. So I didn't really get around to abusing my VIP privileges, but it was a pretty fun weekend. My illustration was right smack in the middle of the program guide. My friend thought it was funny to tell people that I was a centerfold. :P

I sold a few prints but actually sold more $$ in commissions. I'm waiting to hear back from a LARP group on a proposed job for 8 book illustrations and I've been getting a steady stream of quick drawing commissions for birthday presents, DnD characters, original characters, and things like that. I didn't break even, even though my threshold was pretty low, but I met some folks, gave out some contact cards and learned a lot about how to get by in artist alley, so I think it was a good weekend even though I didn't make any money. I'd have done better if I'd brought more stuff and had a standing display. 

Artist Alley had a lot of really neat displays. Lovely yanimator and miho-nyc were there! I came home with prints from them. REX-203 was my very awesome table neighbor. Nattosoup and taintedsilence were across the row and scored Amelie Belcher's spot when the con heads moved her to the Dealer's Room (which is great because it blows to get a spot facing the wall). Antarctic Press was there with a bunch of Fred Perry (FredGDPerry) comics (I bought a couple Gold Bricks to check out). I wish I'd gotten to walk around and genuinely meet people. Maybe next time I'll manage it. 

It was great to see everyone. 
Welcome, new watchers. *^_^* 

Hopefully I won't be too swamped to (attempt to) CG these sketches. I have new character references for GND, VoR, and Youngsfield that I really want to get done.

"It's alright. When the answer eludes you, working with your hands is the best thing you can do. You can sit at home thinking all day, talk to everyone you know... when it's out of reach, it's out of reach. Funnily enough, though, if you work with your hands and become completely absorbed in what you're doing... often enough, you'll find the answer sitting right there on top of the hundredth plate you made."
Honey and Clover by Chica Umino

O Time, thou must untangle this, not I.
It is too hard a knot for me t' untie.
Twelfth Night, or What You Will by William Shakespeare

The art of crafting things fatigues one's spirit.
When the spirit is healed, the desire to make something returns.
It is such a wondrous cycle.
Pokemon Platinum Temple NPC

Thanks for the :+devwatch: 

I noticed that you were a guest artist for Mechacon X! I just got back from Mechacon, so much fun.

Yup yup. :D

I'm glad everyone seemed to enjoy the con. I was stuck at the table for most of it and missed a lot. Hopefully in the future I'll have more prints than commissions and can just leave a minion to man my table every now and then. :)

That's one downside to working artist alley. I'm friends with Jennifer that owns Kitty's Kreations. She has the same problems. I'm going to be looking into running some kind of rpg game in the gaming area next year. Here's to a bigger and more awesome next year!
