Rose City Comicon was really fun! And I got to meet people! And see people again! korybing was lovely as always, and like always I am sad I did not interact with her more! Shout outs to a-girl-named-stu and yourattacksquid for coming by and being super nice and also two of three people I actually remembered to ask WHAT THEIR USERNAME WAS. I seriously need to be better about that.
My table is still ridiculous and baby/novice sized, but this weekend it felt REALLY GOOD. I don’t think my table has felt “me” before, and this weekend it did. Which was really nice. And my husband is a gem and I could not do this without him.
Didn’t buy much, but I grabbed that The Strain book. Will O’ Wisp was grabbed from black-em who was at the table next to us! The xenomorph print is also from her!
What isn’t shown is glasswind's totally awesome Otachi print. That was my last purchase of the weekend and will be going on my wall next to Benjamin Dewey’s PacRim print I got at ECCC.
Hey! I’m going to be at Rose City Comicon September 20th and 21st! I’m all the way in the back at V-07, so come say hi! I will probably be on a caffeine high all weekend because it’s PORTLAND.
And speaking of coffee I will have posters of ALL THE COFFEE BUNS. ALL OF THEM. Even the ones that haven’t been posted yet. Oh yes. Also some pony stuff! And that big Newt piece that I’ve been working on for a year. Which I’m still working on. But it will be done and ON SALE as a set of four prints (since it’s too big, so it had to be broken up). And then some original stuff too (I know, I’m shocked too, but I do have original stuff).
AND FINALLY. IF YOU WERE INTERESTED IN THAT OTACHI SCARF. My sister was keeping donations for her giveaway open through RCCC. So if you want to contribute $10 to her cosplay endeavors (which, she’s pretty darned awesome, so it’d be put to good use, I assure you), you will be put into a giveaway drawing for that. You can contribute through gofundme, or come directly to my table and do it there during the con! My sis will also be there if you want to say hi to her. (The Otachi scarf will be around for a preorder later. This giveaway is for one of the two originals that are made.)
Last time I reblog this, I swear!
See you this weekend!
And we end this sort of prelude portion. There will be a two or three week break now as I need to entirely rewrite the next portion to fit this comic format better. I’ll be at Rose City Comicon next weekend, so trying to update by then would be a bit of stretch to make happen. But a ride from Seattle to Portland and back? Prime writing time!
Taking a break will be good. I can write for this, and for Altra’s story, and for Mendacity. So going to mix up the fanwork with my original stuff for once. This PacRim thing is still the best practice I can get as I’m not so intent on making it perfect.
A drawing for alienfirst. It’s of Newton from PacRim but in my AU style. :)
One of my favorite character designs from one of my favorite artists on Tumblr. You cannot get better than that. Love this style and I ADORE the AU concept (makes me want to know more about it that just the visual can’t tell me).
Super-pumped because I got to do a fic/art trade with alienfirst! This is her prompt art, for which I wrote a fic. The other half of the trade can be found over on her blog, featuring more awesome art, and more words by me. (Please keep the text if you reblog, the words go with the picture.)
It started with the dreams.
He dreamed of San Francisco, Anchorage, Hong Kong. He dreamed of battles and swirling alien landscapes. He dreamed of dying, again and again, in new and violent ways. Nuked. Decapitated. Blasted to a pulp and cut in half.
He dreamed of the Kaiju.
Yooooo! This is awesome. This is super awesome and I love anything to do with Newt and ESPECIALLY if it has to do with him being not quite right in the head or body.
#WHY ARE WE SO MEAN TO NEWT: THE SAGA
This is a question for the ages. But I enjoy it so much.
