okay, okay, okay. i know i’m always on drive-by, and it sucks with a capital SUCKS. this is what happens when you’re a sickly squid who’s had cons and colds and epic familial visits all happen this month alone. (they say as they’re trying not to hork at the moment. fun times.)
honestly, there’s only so much of me to go around on the best of days, and this is that annoying transition part of the year which, for me, are not remotely the best of days.
now–on to actually important, relevant things, yeah?

first thing the first: the featured image doesn’t really have anything to do with this post–okay, that’s not entirely true because i’ll have prints of this illustration of the glorious gilmore casting disintegrate available at plattecon this weekend.

so, yeah, anime milwaukee is literally seven days away, and i am in an epic panic because, ya know, i’m a panicky little squid.
(some of this might be because matt mercer, marisha ray, laura bailey, and travis willingham from critical role are guesting at AMKE? so, i might get to meet them?)
Continue reading #AMKE is a week away, or i multi-classed in panicking
for those of you just joining the show, i’m your host ‘trie (sounds like “tree”), and i’m a mixed media, conceptual artist and writer who has recently become a con-kid/exhibitor, doesn’t like capitalization, and lives in the backwoods of wisconsin.
which makes being a con-kid and an artist a little bit difficult.
at least the trees recognize me as one of their own.

so, i have been largely absent from my blog since nerdcon. just–the state of the world has me down, and i’ve been wrapped up in my nanowrimo novel: tales from the glittering venery.
i’ve been posting excerpts to my imzy if y’all are interested in reading any of it.
but! that’s not actually why i’m here today. i’m here–bugging y’all during the capitalist height of the year–to tell y’all that i’m actually at a con this weekend! (like, i’m literally on the road now.) i’m at pop culture con in st. charles. it’s a nes con, but i think it might be fun.
svengoolie’s gonna be there, so it’s got potential?
see y’all this weekend.
i’m vending at brown county library comic con is this saturday from 10-4!
this is completely wacky and wild and should be a good time, and there are gonna be food trucks (the really good gyros are coming, omg), and there’s gonna be tabletop games and cosplaying and mario kart and local artists–yeah!
and, it’s free to attend!

miles of art is, like, tomorrow, so yeah, i’m going to be at woodland studios all weekend with my art (and woodbody’s and ben’s), but if you’d like a preview (or if you can’t go), ben created one of those 360 not-video things of the exhibit.
it’s pretty swank.
and, on to other things! including brown county library’s comic con.
*tra lala la la*

it is. it’s totally that time for gallery nite, and as usual, i’m going to be at the ARTgarage from 5-9pm, and then–because my life is all sorts of exciting–i’m going to be at st. norbert’s art and craft show on saturday from 10am-5pm.
Continue reading it’s time for another gallery nite (with a side of st. norbert’s art and craft show)
so, i kinda have been in hibernation since kitsune kon because i’ve been prepping for wizard world chicago (re: rosemont) on the 18th.
and, the final depere art walk of the season which is this friday. (i’m at the abbey, btb. y’all should come see me and my new swaggy print/banner display.)

like, kitsune kon starts friday at 2pm. i’m in booth N8. (i’m in sight-line of tasty peach studios! <3 )

so. much. swag.
