Tomorrow I board the plane to UK. I have no idea when I'm getting internet, but it might be a while. Let's hope not, though.

See you soon!
She waited months for me to finish her comission, she gave me total freedom from the very beginning, she was always incredibly nice and thoughtful in her e-mails and she put up with my bouts of indecision and do-overs.

AND NOW she gives me a subscription?!

In other news, I am now on vacation and the day was so hot that I am about to have a midnight swim for the first time in my life. I am also trying to get back on the artistic horse, with the whole having free time thing going on.

And in case you missed it

It's about time I removed my spazzy journal and updated thing around here a bit. Future talk and print talk.

1. I've been MIA for several reasons. No internet and lots of school work. Did you know that a semester might not be enough to plan, script, thumbnail, draw and colour 15-20 comic pages? Yeah, I didn't either. Specially when you're a lazy bum like me.

2. I have apparently been accepted into the Illustration/Animation MA at Kingston University, London. For those of you who might not know, I DO NO LIVE IN THE UK so this is a very big deal. It starts in September and yes, thank you, I have done my fair share of keysmashing about it.

3. I didn't want to announce this before everything was set, but since everything got mailed out last Tuesday, I believe it's safe.

:iconbluestraggler: will have a table at the Fanime 2010 Artist's Alley (San Jose CA, 29-31 May). Our three Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 deviations (which bluestraggler drew and I coloured) will be available as prints. AND IF THIS WASN'T ENOUGH, she, being the amazing sweetheart she is, offered to put Don't try to please the dragon up for sale AND hand out promo cards so I could get my name out there.

Now this is also a very big deal for me, and I have done my fair share of keysmashing about this too. Being the non-American that I am, I've always wanted to try to participate in some kind of big convention's AA at least once - seeing as I can't for the time being, I believe this is the next best thing and I'm very grateful to her.

So now, even though I won't be able to physically be there, at least a part of me will actually be part of the event and that makes me very, very, very happy.

SO, TO SUM IT UP:

Available prints:

Persona 3: Yukari - fav.me/d28sivk
Persona 3: Fuuka - fav.me/d29em8l
Persona 3: Mitsuru - fav.me/d2d8w8n
Runaways: Karolina and Nico - kyendo.deviantart.com/art/Dont…

Now I understand the beauty of thumbnails.

I'll make a journal later with actual specs, prices, table number, etc. Anyhow, if you're in the area and you're into Persona 3, Runaways or... (I'll let you know later which other prints bluestraggler will be selling), please do check it out.

I believe that's all. Thanks, guys!

Holy moly

I am keysmashing in my mind as I type this.

Seriously, I checked in a couple of hours ago and there were over four hundred messages and I basically screamed like a girl (well, I didn't but that's only because I was in the library). But then I had to go to class and now I'm nearing 900 messages and

this just doesn't happen to me

ever

not that I'm complaining 8D

OKAY I HAVE TO WORK NOW BUT I WILL BASK IN MY NEW FOUND SUCCESS (cough) LATER, I PROMISE.

(or tomorrow. No internet at home really sucks.)

[By the way, HennaLucas, I haven't forgotten our art trade, don't worry. It's just... slightly delayed.]
  • Mood: Dumbfounded
  • Reading: Watchmen (again)
Still no internet at college-home but I'm going to spend the weekend at home-home so I'll try to get up to date with things since I won't be animating anyway because my lightbox is at college-home.

Anyway, hiatus. And meanwhile, I'm at the library and my stuff looks horrible in this screen.

ONLY ONE MORE WEEK. *crawls*

The end.

Hey guys! New Year etc etc I hope you're all doing good.

A community was created on Livejournal to help Haiti earthquake victims. There are literally thousands of auctions of anything you can imagine - art, graphics, fiction/fanfiction, knit plushies and all that jazz, random objects and even food, and all the profit goes to the charity of your choice. So if you're interested in helping out and bidding on something, please check it out. You don't have to be on LJ to post. community.livejournal.com/help…

I'm offering a full-colour illustration for 30€ - if there's a chance you might be interested, here's my thread with all the details: community.livejournal.com/help…

If you could pimp this community to everyone you know, that would be very helpful too. Every bit helps, and these people really need it. It could be anyone of us in their place.

Thanks.
