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.

Also, I can now reveal a big secret-  I designed the maps for the program booklet of Artist Alley & Dealer’s room :D ! So look out for that as well.  Whhoooo!  ok sleepy time….

Also, Tim is going to have his book and a ton of amazing new art and Honey & the Whirlwind volume 1! And a WHOLE lot more from the both of us… (yay 4am blog posts)….


Ah I found a photo from Otakon maybe two year ago? Of our set up. Old, but I never seem to remember to take pics.. so enjoy!

Hopefully also more posts after the holidays!

Otakon Wrap up!

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!!
