Wow haven't posted in a long time. I'm really trying to make an effort to be more active on Da ;__; I'm afraid my lovely followers will forget about me.

Anyways I'm in a dilemma I'ce literally sold out of all of my watercolor and ink drawings *_* and HOPEFULLY, if they ever get back to me I would have a table at AFO to sell stuff. Not like I need alot of stuff since AFO gives it's artist like 3.5ft of space *__* Just wide enough to maybe have 2 folders open. So now I'm in a scramble to just barf out drawings as fast as I can to at least have something to show

You wouldn't think I've been drawing by my lack of updates but believe me I have. *_* So much so my wrists want to fall off. I just can't post more on Da because it's work for clients or my comics which I can't share here.

However now that I'm out of school and unemployed and useless at my parent's house I can attend some conventions I hadn't had a chance to before. So the current lineart (possibly is)

:bulletblue:AFO (Orlando)
:bulletblue:Mizucon (Miami)
:bulletblue:Umicon (Daytona)
:bulletblue: Expcon

No out of state conventions though. Too broke -__- to fly out of Florida at the moment.

It's a shame I don't post more digital stuff, but I've grown quite attached to doing traditional work to give my poor eyes a break from the computer.

Also going back to conventions. I'm sticking to my no print policy. =p I don't like making prints even though you can make a lot of money off of them. I rather sell original work. I think it's more meaningful. I have tons of prints just sitting around but looking at them makes me sick. Just duplicate copies of the same thing -__-;  I want to be driven to make new things all the time instead of making 10 things for the whole summer.

Anyways that's all I really have to say. Back to drawing, comics, freelance work, and trying to make new things for future conventions.

I think I'm going to OAF13 too! If you have a table, expect me there! I'd love to meet the face behind the wonderful art!

Aww, we won't forget about you!
Do you draw fanart originals to sell or original anime characters or do you do both?
What you do sounds pretty cool!

Mizu con is more expensive than Supercon for a table isn't it :O

silvertales Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012
I have no idea.... SuperCon tables are $150, I have a hard time seeing how a con the size of MizuCon could justify charging that much. O.o

Just saw you won't be at AFO this year. I'll miss you!

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you some more at SuperCon before you guys left on Sunday, but I wanted to ask you about the sequapunch kickstarter. I'll send a note. :)

Oh our kickstarter expired for Sepapunch expired a good while ago (Like in March). We got funded and had enough sales and money to fund the 2nd issue ourselves. :)

NONSENSE!

And man, at least you've got local conventions. I think I'd have to drive out of state for anything good. D:

Good to see you back on DA again! :la:
Ahhh, your journals always make me so happy, too~! I've always feel like if someone needs an example of an artist, you're so definitely it; you draw so much and from the heart, and even the way you'd rather not sell prints shows you just love it; it's lovely to see! :love:
Glad to hear you're doing well~ Mind those wrists! :XD:

I totally agree with you, which is probably why you're like, my fave person to commission (besides, of course, I like how you draw lol) I'm SUUUUPER picky about what I like, and I have a lot of anime friends, so theres a HUGE chance, because we now all go to the same cons, that we'll get the same art if its printed, and it loses its love a little when you see your friend have it. And plus you add cute little extras to them sometimes :iconlove:
