Toracon was so much fun! and We haven’t even finished uploading UBcon’s sketches! Thanks to all you cool cats who dropped by for awesome conversation and general good times!! Also it was beyond cool to see my art on the volunteer badge >w< torachibi time!!! Anime Boston is this weekend… so … here we go again!!!
Hey All. I never did a formal Otakon wrap up and we just got back from EAE! So what better way than post some pics from Otakon… and in a few I’ll be posting a report on EAE. Cheers!
So Otakon 2010 was CRAZY! and a blur. There was a fire incident, of course, and the alley fan art limits and the usual flights delayed and such. But overall it was a fantastic year! It was really great to see so many familiar faces and also to meet many new ones as well! Our neighbors- Loritza and Michelle of Electric Lemonade fame were the best! We also got to hang with a lot of our Alley and Deviantart buds (you all know who you are! hehe). Also many thankx to our real life friends for helping us set up and watch our table and hang out and be cool- Chris, Emily, Steph, Dannii, Kenney, & Molly
My Uber Extreme: How to Draw Chibis: Copic Edition was a big success as well! I’m rather sad that half the people who showed up had to be turned away due to capacity issues. I’ve been told that next year I’ll be given a larger space (so hopefully that will work out!). The Workshop staff were fantastic, so many thanks to them for working with me!
The Alley had some modified times, and while our placement was less than ideal, we still managed to have fun and success. We also debuted a lot of new merch- acrylic charms, spaklies, and glow pandas and onigiri! I’m a bit bummed that I was so busy I hardly have any photos! Tim’s Honey & the Whirlwind did especially well- he sold out of all his goggles on the first day AND H&TW fans stopped by to say hi- which was SUPER cool. I did more comishies than ever before- and half of them I didnt even get to take photos of! *so sad!!* But here is some documentation, hopefully You’ll enjoy.
We’ll see you Ota-kats next year!!

Photos of Comishions: (I actually missed a ton of photos of other comishies I did so I’m really sad I can’t show them T_T;; if you have a pic of a comishie I did for you, please send it to singedcatstudios(at)gmail.com)
Hey kids! This week we’ll be at the fabooosh Erie Anime Experience. It’s a 3 day con in Erie, PA Sept 10-12. Here’s a handy map of the Artist Alley which is located in Room 303C of the Frank G. Pogue Student Center (405 Scotland Road Edinboro, PA 16444)
Honey & the Whirlwind author/artist, Kings will be there along with Anii (of tsubasa-no-kami fame). Kings has some limited first press copies of Honey & the Whirlwind as well as a bunch of kick ass steampunk goggles. Anii will have some Kawaii Lufflies earrings, rings, charms, and new necklaces as well as some new handmade onigiri wallets and handmade Japanese bound books! Oh! Annnd a bunch of 12 x 18 posters.
You can snag a set of 2 on SCS etsy here for only $2!
Onigiri (that’s Japanese rice balls) pirates vs ninjas 1″ glow in the dark buttons!!
The white areas glowing brilliantly, but also areas of blue and red take on a very subtle secondary glow as well.
In lieu of my printer breaking hardcore at the last minute, here is the PDF you can download off deviantart by clicking “download”! It’s my How to draw chibi cheat sheet & hopefully you will find it useful.
