update: #oddcon

so–there’s all sorts of shenanigans happening in the world of odyssey con (oddcon) right now, which i would direct y’all to go read up about it here, here, here, here, and here.  i’m sure that there are other accounts and think-pieces and such, but these are the core accounts that i ran across.

in short, i’m not going to be vending at oddcon because of these shenanigans.

drive-by: #egocon & UGOpodcast

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?

#AMKE is a week away, or i multi-classed in panicking

*INKS*

welcome to a new year at tentacle-made studios!

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.
