Sketchbooks are in! Get one on Storenvy~
I visited The Last Bookstore in downtown LA last month, took some photos, and got some fantasy novels. I know where I’m getting all my used books now. * o *
Night Vale Live! Some nice ladies in line gave us real Big Rico’s pizza. *¬*
I didn’t realize how big 33x78 inches actually is OH WELL.
Gwen is in this photo four times. It’s like a game of find the Gwens.
I’ve wanted to try brick toast forever!!
Thank you, auroreblackcat. * 0 * I’ll just go lie down with this beautiful work and die happy now.
Snapshots from SDCC! I’ve been going for seven years and this was quite possibly the best year ever?!?!
The finished and printed t-shirt design I did for A-Kon 24’s shirt contest! I didn’t get a photo of the shirt table this year, so here it is on a badly cropped photo of me, haha. I liked the lavender option best~
There’s been some nasty rumors about me and A-Kon’s t-shirt contest going around the interwebs, and I want to take a minute to try and dispel them. Since I have won the t-shirt design contest for three years in a row, some people are accusing A-Kon of secretly commissioning me to win their shirt design contest every year, thus rigging the contest. This is not true. Although I am a contract artist for A-Kon and do advertising illustration for them, I am not considered an official staff artist. The contract does not include working on their t-shirt, nor does it prevent me from entering the contest. I just like entering it. And as long my contract doesn’t change, I will continue to enter the t-shirt design contest for as long as I feel like it. :)
I’ll admit this year’s entry was rushed and not my best work, and I feel like that may have contributed to this rumor being started. Next year, if I have time to enter the contest again, I’m determined to make the very best design I possibly can!
Pokemon commissions are the best commissions.
My ears are still ringing with the sweet sounds of violin~! Anyone who’s been in my livestreams knows I am a huge, huge fan of Lindsey Stirling’s music, (since that’s… all I play in livestream NOT SORRY). Seeing her live last night was something to check off the bucket list, though I want to go again already! Whenever I’m working on an illustration or a comic page and need an extra push of energy, I put her album on and work through it. Her music and budding career are inspiring.
I spoiled myself with too much good food last weekend. Went to eat meats drowning in curry with Zetallis, itsateben, pyawakit, Milkbun, and Fayren, and then we raided my favorite bakery for cakes, (and they had a portal cake!). There was also a family birthday, so that means going out and eating a truly American, ridiculously large brunch. Also pictured at top: green tea mousse, hazelnut biscotti, and red velvet coffee.
OH BTW PS: Limited strawbunny mugs are back in stock!!
During my last livestream, the lovely Cafel asked to see some pictures of my workspace, so here it is! The drawing I have open is a page out of my sketchbook, because I needed something to cover up all the secret Gaia work currently on my screen. :P
Favorite shot of my mugs. One is off to a new home soon. > u <
