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.
okay, so this month–this year–has been super-rough on me (really, on all of us), so things have not moved apace the ways that i might have wanted.
that being said, this is not that kind of post: this is a collection of the bits and bobs i’ve enjoyed this year, the events that have been super-cool, and the things that need to be celebrated.
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.
NERDCON: STORIES IS FRIDAY! \o/
gnome and i leave tomorrow morning for load-in and set-up, and i’m having a bit of a THING because i always do~
but, before i do the talky-talky about nerdcon: stories, i wanted to thank everyone who came to the first annual brown country library comic con and thank the library for letting me participate!
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.
first thing the first: LION CON’S THIS WEEKEND!!!
so, if you’re in the st. cloud area (or st. could adjacent), y’all should come by this new con and visit me (and the con because the con would be the thing that you came for, i’d just be incidental awesomeness). *tra lala la la*
also, the tale of the absent squid from wizard world chicago (re: rosemont): the engine in my vehicle kinda–well–died.
like, kitsune kon starts friday at 2pm. i’m in booth N8. (i’m in sight-line of tasty peach studios! <3 )
and, i have new swag with which to tempt y’all: 11×14 posters *gestures emphatically at the featured image*, pillows, new buttons designs. and, that’s in addition to all the things that i already carry.
so. much. swag.
