Sooo Intervention…. It was a Blast!! Tim & I hung out with our fantastic friends: Mookie of Dominic Deegan fame, and Stuffed Sushi! So many awesome highjinks and hilarity ensued throughout the weekend. Also it was both Sushi’s birthdays! Poor Mookie lost his voice, but we all keept chatting it up. >_<;; warg so sorry! We both talk too much (haha!)
Also the Super Art Fight gang was there! (Note to self… SAF after hours is crazy….) Ah… AND!, I finally got to meet the excellent Dernjg himself of Hello with Cheese and SAF (also snagged an EPIC print from him). And one of the first people I ever watched on Deviantart (Deanna Echanique of La Macchina Bellica fame) was right across the way from me- so I was able to secretly fan out all weekend about that. Lastly, I need to thank Jennie Breeden of The Devil’s Panties for giving me her sushi order menu and thus preventing me from dying of hunger and lack of sushi at the con!
I’m so glad to meet a whole bunch of very splendid new people. Also grateful to those of you who snagged some swag along the way! More pics on that as I upload them from my phone… I wish I could say that the journey back was excellent, but sadly, Southwest lost my luggage (of course it was the one with all my merch and Tim’s clothes!!). Turns out that rainbow necklaces with unicorns, Doctor Who and various original cute 1″ buttons, and Chinese take out boxes are potential terrorist threats, and are being kept in Baltimore overnight. Bummer~! But hey- overall I had a LOT of fun, drew some pretty nifty stuff (I’ll post some of that stuff in the next few days too.
Hey so I’m back on a roll! Gonna keep it up now! SOooo many more comics comin’ your way!!! See ya soon~!!!
We’re back from Otakon 2011! Wow… what an experience!! We cats had a BLAST! Thanks to everyone who was cool and hung out. Real quick, here are the .pdfs from the Uber Extreme: How to Draw Chibis Pen x Ink workshop (d/l link here) and Super Japanese Stab Stitch Binding Book (d/l link here) workshop!
Stop by Tables 1 & 2 in the Artist Alley- and score a free awesome button! It’s going to be a blast this year. I’m hosting TWO workshops: UBER EXTREME: How to Draw Chibi Workshop Pen x Ink (Saturday @ 11:30 am in Workshop Room 1) AND a second workshop- Super Japanese Stab Stitch Book Binding (Friday @ 3pm Workshop Room 2). Space is super limited in the Book Binding room.
Ranzatsu is the Japanese word for clutter/disorder/promiscuity. This is an exercise in dialogue through participatory comics/manga. Part Performance, Part Installation. There is no audience. Everyone joins to create a comic dialogue from upcycled manga/comics/their own hand. It can never be finished.
Check out the other Awesome Infringers: link. Also help support the Kickstarter that’s makin’ it all possible!
Hey all! We Cats are going to be at Anime Central aka Acen this weekend!
