Alright - for the record, I have gotten some concerns from folks. I am fine. I’m sorry if I worried anyone, I’ve been coping with some events. I’ll spare details to protect the innocent - but I’m alright.
And now the other announcement: as I stated earlier this week, I am in fact going to a convention this weekend. Some of my buddies invited me to tag along with them to Brony Fan Fair in Austin. So if anyone is going - I shall be there in some capacity. I’ll be the shell shocked red head in the bowler hat.
I will trade buttons and commission work for Throwback Dr Pepper. Also if anyone has any idea where I can find good ice cream - and or a good pub in the area I’m open to suggestions.
I hope to get back on track with personal projects when I return. Cucu in theory is working on some of the edits while I’m gone. So fingers crossed nothing else explodes when I come back.
As per tradition I will have a queue of random shit up on this blog to amuse, educate and entertain while I’m away.
Got a call yesterday from some friends, apparently I’m now tagging along to work a pony convention this weekend. On the plus side it’s in Austin, which I have always wanted to see more of. I probably won’t get to see much of it - but hey - optimism!
Looks like I get to do some last minute con prep.
Important Notice about Mads attending the Monster Mania con
NBC/DLC/Gaumont have not made an official statement saying Mads Mikkelsen will be there.
The only notice he will be attending is that (poorly made) banner from the Con promoters.
I just thought I’d say something, tattle-crime tweeted yesterday that they are working to confirm and to just hold up on buying tickets til we’re sure?
No one wants anyone to get burned. And I don’t want the con, when Mads doesn’t turn up, to try and blame him. You know?
Just yeah, maybe, keep up to date with tattle-crime and DLC until we’re sure. x
Confirming that I am working to get some kind of official statement and that we DO NOT HAVE ONE YET from DLC/NBC/Gaumont/Mads/Mads’ Rep. I will definitely tweet/post/retweet/reblog as soon as we have confirmation either way.
Thanks for your patience, everyone. <3!
Okay, I just heard about this last night, but I cannot urge you guys strongly enough to avoid this whole thing. I am 99% sure that it is some bizarre scam on someone’s end—maybe it’s the convention, maybe they got scammed, I don’t know. Please, please do not blow your money on this—I’ve seen some people desperately trying to figure out how to afford it and how to get there, and I am really telling you, I am 99.9% sure there is no “there” there. If nothing else, someone will get some kind of official yes/no statement this week, so wait until that, if nothing else. We’ve had enough convention shenanigans for one month.
Reblogging to signal boost. I’m sick of convention shenanigans and people pissing in the convention circuit pool.
Welp I’m home from San Japan. It was an awesome weekend, I had lots of fun.
Now to shower and see what’s in the fridge that I can devour.
Just a heads up I will be on the road again this weekend. I will be at San Japan in San Antonio. So if you are in the area come on by and say hi. (The useful map above shows where in the Artist Alley I am.) I’ll either be the red head in a bowler hat or lots of purple (I’ll be cosplaying Fem!Cecil Palmer).
If anyone has any throwback Dr Pepper on their hands to get rid of I will gladly trade commissions for sugar Dr Pepper.
ALSO - discount on commissions and sales if you can guess which artist has a birthday this weekend. (Hint: she has red hair and a bowler hat)
As usual - I’ll be leaving the blog on auto pilot to keep the lights on while I’m away.
So I’m back from A-Kon - not quite richer - but not quite poorer than I was.
I’m working on uploading my huge ass collection of cosplay photos from con. Not much else to report.
Stolen and twice edited from dracontiar and itsatiepoproductions
I’m probably not ready but time waits for no man,woman or robot.
I’ll be there with my buddies at A-Kon in Dallas with buttons - prints - bookmarks - and other odds and ends. I’ll also be open for commission work and random nerdy shop talk.
Also - I highly doubt anyone will be up for this - but I will seriously trade art or commissions for some Throwback Dr Pepper (I can’t have High Fructose Corn Syrup but the sugar sodas are A-OK.) So if you feel like feeding my addiction please drop on by the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. I’ll be the sleep deprived red head - I’ll either be wearing a bowler hat or cosplaying in lots and lots of purple.
Back from con. Survived the madness of tear down and loading and flash floods. Somewhere Cucu has photos from the con and maybe one of my cosplay.
In other more important news - I desperately uninstalled - and reinstalled my drivers and rebooted everything for one last time and…my tablet seems to be working again.
Just a heads up - this weekend I’ll be at Comicpalooza in Houston. So anyone in the area come by and say hi. They always have great guests and a large venue so it should be an interesting weekend.
I’ll be selling prints, buttons, stickers, and I’ll be open for commissions. The Artist Alley is sort of large this year so keep an eye out for the Foolish Mortal banner with the flying bowler hat in the 1200 row (table 1231).
I’ll be the red head in the bowler hat for part of the weekend, the other part I’ll be in cosplay. So on Saturday and Sunday look for the red head in purple covered in ink drawings.
Our table at Aggie con 2014!
The con artists in their natural habitat - guess which one is me.
