Kevin's headed up to Pittsburgh this week for

He'll be running an artist alley table and a workshop on gesture drawing and expressions during the March 31-April 3 show. If you're in the neighborhood, be sure to say HI! :D

Since he'll be rolling out this week, I've put the finishing touches on the Zenkaikon photos. We had an amazing time!

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE ZENKAIKON CREW! MATTIE, DREW, ADAM & STAFF!
...now the incriminating evidence... )
AND THAT WAS ZENKAIKON! WOO!


In news closer to home, I applied for my boss' job and had my interview. The interview itself went very well. I'm told that the decision regarding the boss' job will be reached as soon as March 31st, perhaps in the week after that. So, I alternate wildly between ridiculous Chihuahua-levels of anxiety and anticipation and willful obliviousness. If I don't think about it, it'll get here soon enough. Surely sweating about it is the least 'managerial' thing I could do. Gotta stay cool. Either I get it or I don't. No point in freaking.

Not about the job anyways.

LOL. Kevin can tell you that I'm five flavors of basket case about the studio right now. We'll be sinking so much money and effort into AnimeBoston. It's one of the biggest financial risks we've ever taken with the studio. It's less than a month away, and let me tell you internets, I'm fit to be tied.

I do tend to work better when there's a fire under my ass though and I'm burnin' up right now!

February 12, 13, & 14 (Happy Valentine's Day!), we were in Timonium at Far Point 2010!

Thanks to our friends at RobotMartini.com, Gavin & Griff, we were introduced to a most excellent gentleman, Eli, with the Far Point programming department. Eli graciously incorporated us into Far Point's brand new "Do-It-Yourself" track, and welcomed us to do all kinds of panels.

We even worked with Eli and other local comic artists to set up a brand new philanthropic event, THE CHARITY STRIP-OFF. :D

We have video of the shark dance at our new YouTube channel.


In addition to this silliness, I'm also job-hunting. I should hear from my most exciting prospect before Tuesday. *Fingers crossed*


And now, Cats )

First... Dr. Watson's Internal Monologue for all my Holmes Homies.

Second... Tuesday, I will go grocery shopping.

Third... Have a cat.

I have nothing else important to say. However, if you draw me a criminal animal, I will draw you its accomplice. If you have fun doing this, post it to your journal and see what kind of animal crime wave you get in your comments. They cannot be reasoned with! They are not human!

And I am intrigued by this web novella. Not far enough into it to rave about it yet, but I am hooked enough to continue reading. There are were-horses and an infected surface world.

Booth of Love!

We're back from AnimeUSA!

And lemme tellya. This con was just such a wonderful experience! The venue was nice. The staff were amazing. The attendees were fun & funny. I handed out over 1300 flyers in person, and I know I spoke to each and every person I gave one to!

The con was structured so that the artist alley NEVER CLOSED. Lol! We stayed for a 14 hour shift the first day, 16 the day after, and then 10 the following day. I spoke to complete strangers (who are no longer complete strangers, as we made friends with a number of them over the course of the con), for 40 hours in 3 days.

I'm a little hoarse. I spoke with some folks when I got home and they thought I'd picked up some horrible con-flu thing, but I swear, I feel fine! Heck, my throat doesn't really hurt. I just sound like Joan Rivers. "Oh! OH! Can we TALK?!"

We have a lot more funny pictures, but they're on Roxy's camera. (Psst. Roxy? Please to send pictures?) I'll post'em when I get'em. In the meanwhile...Kevin does Commissions! )

We're doing a small, local art show in December:

Kevin and I are road-tripping to NYC tomorrow where we will stay with a friend in Brooklyn and live at our con table for 3 days. Check out the crazy hours on this con!

Friday, October 16, 2009 - 12pm - 8pm,

That's 24 hours of convention! I'm gonna take some thick towels to fold and lay down just behind the table so that my feet don't fall off by day three. It's always best to stand, but that concrete is KILLER.

SOOO excited! *DANCING!*

Oh and this is the last time I do Chu-Chu Rocket for our table-map. Promise. We're just on a super-time crunch between these two cons. I'm gonna ask Kevin to help me make some graphics for so that I can build maps with OUR characters from here on out.

Wish us luck, and if you're local, come see us!

Baltimore Comic Con PHOTO-DUMP!! )

Also, things is gettin' crazy! We leave early on Friday for New York City, NY for the Wizard World Convention: Big Apple Comic Con. We're in booth #3069. (Artist Alley table #69). I will post another clever map before we go. When we return late Sunday or early Monday, we'll do a post-con dump and start throwing things into boxes.

We move on October 24th!

If I miss out on things happening online or in real life among friends, I apologize in advance! I'm not sure how well-connected I will be in the two weeks to come.

For real, we're booking more cons and learning more and more each time we do them. This one has taught me that my accounting and filing systems are both crap--but it also shows me where to fix them! :D
