HEY EVERYONE!!!! OTAFEST WAS AMAAZZIINNGG THIS YEAR~ I shared a table with MattCarberry
and we infiltrated the con as Team Rocket first thing on Friday:
It was so exciting to meet so many familiar faces! (most of my Maid'ens
came to visit me at my table and I attended most of their panels too)
I didn't feel like wearing a wig so instead of Mavis and Jonathan we went causally Victorian on Saturday:
I was seated next to The-Dapper-Owl
to the left and Donserate
with his girlfriend Medusasno
on the right (Medusasno had work on Sunday so I only got a photo with Donserate with his EPIC GUNDAM MASK). They were all great neighbours and I commissioned The-Dapper-Owl
Across our tables were the art of sisters Weissidian
I'm sorry I didn't get around to chatting with you more so I hope you had a safe trip back to Edmonton~
It was DappleFox
's birthday over the weekend too!
SHE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO SHARE CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH EVERYONE BLESS HER
I also got to see meru
again and gave them the original drawings from the art trade we did two years ago. THEIR STALLS LOOKED AMAZIINNGG
SHE HAS HER OWN FABRIC PRINTS AND CAN SEW. SO AWESOME!
SHE HAS PAINTED BOXES THEY'RE SO BEAUTIFUL~ AND HER DRESS REALLY SPARKLES
OOH And I was on the lookout for kindred-spirits-with-dreams-of-being-mangaka-in-North-America and got to chat with Melissa King Hope
the author of Unlikely Sanctuary and tiffa
author of Shadow Magic. Tiffany is already on her way to getting her story animated so GO CHECK OUT HER ANIMATED TRAILER
It's always good to meet other people with headchildren and the trials and tribulations that come with raising them. If you like the yaoi sub-genre give her story a read!
Tiffa makes really cute lacy-wrist cuffs, cat and rabbit ears and chokers! I bought a few from her and she gave me a keychain and a towel. THANKS FOR THE FREE STUFF TIFFA!!!
In the meantime almost 60 people signed onto my mailing list for updates on when Eros & Psyche Book 1 is finally open for pre-orders (October TBA) and almost half of them were interested in the Colouring Contest promotion
I'm sorry for not keeping up with announcements on DeviantART but if you REALLY want to participate it's not too late to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the line art and be a part of the colouring contest or just have the line art because you just want the line art. I'll keep that offer open for you deviants until JULY 16th
2016 After which that link to the Line Art will expire.
In the meantime I wish you all a fabulous summer!
