This week: Back to business! Keres makes Kit an offer she can refuse, and does!
I'M GOING TO START BREAKING OUT THE FLASHING TEXT! ONLY NINE DAYS LEFT TO SEND ME ART FOR VOLUME 2! WINNERS WILL GET A SKETCH COMMISSIONS OF THEIR CHOICE! I've posted the whole thing over at the TUMBLR!
As for TCAF, it was awesome!! I was so excited to see readers of FW, and it was great just talking comics with folks! And of course, hello and welcome to new readers! :D
I had a great time, even if I started Saturday terrified because of a mix up with my table (it turned out to be nothing at all, but I ended up changing tables anyway to let another exhibitor make use of the wall socket behind me). I ended up sitting beside Erica Moen and when she sold out of all her books, Dylan Meconis (whose Bite Me was one of the first webcomics I ever read!) Went out for food with Crystal, Meg and Isa of Namesake (which you should seriously all read now) and Ran and Cory from The End. You should also all read The End, but also also ask Cory about the Korean BBQ restaurant's bathrooms! And there were delicious crêpes and a baffling poster advertising a "men's sex maze" that caused much conjecture and speculation. (is there a sex minotaur at the end?) And after the show the weather was so terrible Nick and I went to watch Iron Man 3 (it was pretty cool!)
I met so many artists that I admire and so many people doing amazing work I don't think my mind could contain all the feels, so I spent most of last week in a post-convention daze, briefly questioning most of my career choices and calculating what I'll take me to get back there! ;) I will definitely try to get back (preferably not on the waiting list of last-minute panic) because it was pretty magical!
There's a Fey Winds Tumblr now! I've also got my art blog tumblr as well. I'm a bit busy with work to be able to do a lot of sketching, but I try to post progress shots and unrelated drawings there regularly too.
The vote bait this week, and probably other weeks in the forseeable future is the product of a weekly speedpaint lunch we do at work. I'm the unofficial Dungeon Master, so it's my job to find a random subject to have myself and my coworkers try to make into a piece of art that doesn't cause eye bleeding in the space of about 45 minutes. This one had the subject "Fashionable Monsters".
