Start-of-the-Year Rush COMPLETE

Mon May 18, 2015, 9:32 AM
First off, WELCOME ALL NEW PEOPLES! You probably found this from my business cards, and hey, that's super cool! Enjoy the artworks, and I still post here from time to time, so don't worry - it's still active even if I'm not updating the journal as much. :P

Speaking of Journals...


As you can see, I haven't updated my journal since December, and honestly, that's because I was busy with at least one con a month, and sometimes two, usually really close to each other.

Things I've learned from this experience? LET'S NOT PUT THEM SO CLOSE TOGETHER, EH?

As for Conventions...


After being at a lot of shows I've done many years, I think I'm going to take a year off of a couple of the ones I usually vend at to actually attend them for once. CRAZY, I KNOW? Currently on the list are Youmacon 2015 (I plan on just wandering, maybe paneling, and doing masquerade), Shutocon 2016 (where I hope to do some paneling), and ACen 2016 (mostly because I haven't "attended" in over 5 years, and last time was kind of disasterous, so I'd like a better experience).

So what does this mean? Welp, it also means I'm getting a little more adventurous on my costumes, and they might be a little cumbersome to be behind a table, so I'm going to use the opportunity to FINALLY MAKE THEM.

But don't worry, I'm not dropping ALL of them. :) I still plan to vend at a few over the next year.

Big Project/Work


Another reason why I'm cutting down on some conventions, is that I've picked up a new Job-Like-Thing, and it's going to be eating a lot of my other time outside of the regular stuff. It's all supposed to wrap up around Decemberish, so hence why my fall/winter schedule has like NOTHING in it. I'll be a bit busy working on that.

For those of you waiting on Tangerine #3, this is why it's not out yet. On the bright side, it's story-boarded, and half the pages are blue-penciled in, I just need to get past my first due date on the Big Project, and then I'll have some extra time.

Hi! I was looking for a Pascal's wig but I didn't find anything and I was wondering if you could help me ;_; Where did you buy the wig? I think your Pascal's cosplay is very good ;_; Thanks ;_;

Dawwww, thank you!

I actually used Arda wigs, I had a Magnum in White and the red was actually red wefts I sewed into the bottom layers of the wig (apple red, I think?). I dunno how much that might help out, but that's how I made mine. :)

I'm finally getting back to all my messages, whew!

It was good to meet you! I loved what I saw of your manga! After I get done with the last couple of shows in my crunch time I want to sit down and actually read through it all. :) Keep up the good work!

I'm quite terrible at replying to messages in a timely manner even if I don't have a lot going on, as I'm sure you do, so don't worry about it :aww:

I haven't uploaded all of chapter one yet, (I figured that posting ten-fifteen pages every two weeks-ish was a better plan than posting forty five pages all at once and then nothing new until several months later) so you have plenty of time before everything you've seen is on the internet. I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on it! :D
