hi, y’all, it’s been forever and ever and ever, but it has not all be for naught! because i’ve been doing things like restructuring my patreon, formalizing my commissions, preparing for cons, and doing the writing thing (with potential ‘zines in the offing) bc i WILL have a completed a glittering venery novel-thing at some point, i swear.
(if you’re interested in reading some of what i’ve already written with deeply questionable editing, check the writing & books menu, or y’all could just click here.)
so–FIRST THING THE FIRST!
kitsune kon is this weekend in green bay, and i will be there, my intrepid cephalopods. so, if you’re gonna be there, come by and see me!
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?)
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!
so–the first depere art walk is coming up in a week, but because xo fitness is kinda awesome, my work is going to be there for the next week–like a pop-up show–starting tomorrow afternoon.
also, i finally sorted out my storenvy and etsy so that there are actual things in them, and my spoonflower has fabric, et al. in it now too.
as always, my redbubble exists.
it’s being extremely long and lacking in productivity–okay, not really, i’m mostly unpacked and reorganized now, and my redbubble’s been being updated.
but, minnesota wizard world was kinda disappointing, but then again, it was mother’s day weekend, free comics day, and there was another con going on in the city.
*tra lala la la*
and, hopefully, in the next week, i’ll have things back up in my storenvy and etsy. (unpacking and reorganization were kinda important to these eventualities.)
and, if that’s not enough excitement, i have the beginnings of my summer/fall art walk/con schedule:
- affair of art at the ARTgarage–TONIGHT from 5-8 (i’m going to paint and draw)
- depere art walk, june 10th at xo fitness
- downtown green bay farmers market, june 25th (pending)
- downtown green bay farmers market, july 2 (pending)
- depere art walk, july 8th at balance in bloom
- kitsune kon green bay, july 22nd-24th
- depere art walk, august 12th at selah theraputic wellness, reavive
- chicago wizard world, august 19th-22nd (pending)
- st. cloud lion con, august 27th (pending)
- st. norbert art and craft show, august 17th (pending)
- downtown green bay farmers market, september 24th (pending)
- nerdcon: stories minneapolis, october 14th-16th (pending)
and, then, we’re back into holiday shows. and, there are some gallery nites in there too somewhere and, probably, miles of art.
okay, i need to get ready for the shindig at the ARTgarage tonight.
and, it’s coming on may 6-8th.
THAT’S VERY SOON.
although–RIGHT NOW–i’m on-hold on a live chat with overnight prints WAITING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO TWO SETS OF MY PRINTS. there is no chill, and i’m lowkey murderous because i’ve been on-hold a weirdly long time. okay, so they were printing when i finally got a hold of someone. (let’s hope that what i was told was accurate.)
and, this week–on thursday the 21st–i have gallery nite where i’ll be all tucked in at the ARTgarage. i’ll have an abbreviated selection with me at gallery nite.
okay, not super-literally. it’s more of a question before i start nuts-and-bolts-ing things: would y’all be interested in being able to obtain your own squishy?
’cause, i thought i might have for sale on my storenvy, etsy, or at cons if that were a thing people would be interested in?
first thing the first: i’m having a giveaway over on my tumblr. fantastic prizes await the winner! (or, something?)
