Wow....how crazy has this year been?! Between work being more and more annoying and having less and less motivation to work on anything, I have been having a rather....meh year. BUT, it has ALSO been crazy as hell....at least, well, for the past few months anyway.
Let's start with Cons, shall we? I went to Anime Central back in May with some of my great friends
it was pretty cool. sadly, most of us ended up getting sick and dealing with hellacious leg pains. Not to mention that we were a little disappointed with how the con was ran (really? you're going to cancel panels at the last minute, and the masquerade?! thanks noobs)
other than that, i had a good time and walked away with some nice merchandise. even broke down and bought a 3DS then proceeded to street pass almost 350 people JUST ON THAT SATURDAY!
So, with one con out of the way, i have two more i'm planning on going to this year: Starbase Indy and Anime Crossroads. Unfortunately, I will NOT be getting a table this year as ACross. I just can't afford the table nor do i have anything to sell. BUT....in March is INDY COMIC CON!!!! First year for this special con and I am SO going to try for an artist table (currently, the website has them for $150 and that includes two badges). guess I better bust my six!
Next on the list is a kids's show my friends and I are doing (this is friends from high school). The Cartoon Guy Show
is what we are currently filming a pilot and the first three episodes after the pilot (so basically the first four episodes) and getting them ready to show to PBS so that we can get onto the TV! It's an art show that is not only entertaining but teaches children--and even adults--about how to draw, make props/items on a budget and even how art history or history in general can inspire current art trends (like comics or anime)
We are hopeful that it will be a success! So far we have heard a lot of folks waiting for this show to hit because they can't wait; even those who don't have kids!
And that's pretty much what's been going on lately. Time to start working on more art, attempting to work on my portfolio, and get this show on the road!!!!
