So, I reached 11,000 views a while ago and neglected to type up my usual journal entry. Oops.
This summer I have been very busy! I tabled at a convention for the first time (Philadelphia Wizard World - happy to say I made some profit) and I've been working on commissions, prints, sketches, annnndd a comic! It is a comic with two buddies from my hometown and I have been given the task of inking, coloring, AND lettering. We will have a 6-page preview available starting this August, just in time for the first of my fall conventions! I also attended Special Edition - NYCC, and that was fantastic. Met a few artist buddies in person, caught up with a few I don't get to see very often, bought some great art, and enjoyed some nerdy fun with friends! It was great. Maybe I'll try to table there next year; who knows? It is definitely a 3-year goal.
This fall, I will be tabling at Twin Tier Comic-Con in upstate NY as well as Baltimore Comic-Con. Locust Moon Comic Festival in October is yet to be determined... I will also be attending (just for fun!) NYCC in October and will be cosplaying as Kim Possible and Atom Eve this year! I'm very excited about all of that.
In my own, personal non-art related world, I have been catching up on some reading and creating better habits by working out every morning and afternoon, as well as making a point of flossing every night and eating more fruits / veggies and less meat. Saves money and helps me avoid using the stove/oven with all this summer heat! I'm pretty proud of the daily work outs and I am starting to see some nice muscles forming! Woo!
My cat is happily spending her summer days relaxing in the window, occasionally meowing at a bird or bug, and leaving her fur /everywhere/. And in great abundance. I've gone so far as to lint roll her and it doesn't seem to be helping
But, I love her anyway.
Keeping this short! As usual, if you are interested in commissioning me for work (sketch covers, art pieces, coloring...) let me know!
