miles of art and other suspects

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.

less than a week away from kitsune kon

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.

so–things

and, yeah, i realize that the first post i’ve done in forever being at almost 3(-ish)am my time is peculiar, but insomnia and depression do strange things to your brain.  *hands*

this post comes in five parts.

first part the first:  definitely depere starts this week, and I have been remiss in saying anything about it.

(my brain is/has been an unhappy, tumultuous place, and for some reason, art-related anything has been difficult for me to talk about?  idek.)

ugh, failwhale

okay, so, here’s the thing–i’ve been making videos and making (slowly) art and doing things, and because work and brain space and the general suckage which is a body that doesn’t work the way that i want it to, i haven’t been getting things posted the way i really, really want to:  not here, not patreon, not youtube, not redbubble–nowhere.

it’s very frustrating, so this is gonna be a kind big post.

I HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLY BUSY; I’M SO SORRY.

i’m not even kidding.  between moving out of my studio at the ARTgarage, The Hub shenanigans (including a podcast–WE DID OUR FIRST PODCAST!), a really important commission (more below), and my own projects like projecTransparency and the sketch-a-day project–ears, y’all, up to my pointed little ears.

it’s kind of a nice change of pace.

now, if i could only manage to do things like go to the grocer or, ya know, other adulting-type things.

I AM ADULT DEFICIENT.

so–commission.  i just sent off the variety of sizes of the file this morning after wonder why did i become so adept at photoshop?  (protip:  i’m not.  i just like to pretend that i am.)  but, it’s for geonn cannon’s the rise and fall of radiation canary, and the novel is amazing.

and, i think my design is pretty amazing too.

Radiation Canary - Rainmakers for Wizards Summer Tour '06

 

and, it’s available as a shirt–and other goods–over here on redbubble.

y’all should buy shirts.  i’ve already been paid, so i say this as someone who just REALLY WANTS ONE FOR THEMSELVES.

…i didn’t think to put I GET A FREAKIN’ SHIRT in the contract.  oh, well.  live and learn.

i’ve also been sketch-a-day-ing it up with cecaelia and–my little pony.

i also updated the cephalabun and did a funko-inspired yona from snowpiercer sketch, which i kind of adore.

i’m actually thinking about making my piece for the ARTgarage’s pop culture show in january be a polyptych of  the core group from my little pony:  friendship is magic.  *hands*

i have also set up my patreon completely.  there are perks and milestones, and i’m even remembering to post patron-only content.

sooooooooooooooo, if you’d like to support me and my endeavor, there ya go, and here’s my intro video to it (as well as the other videos i’ve been forgetting to post because i suck):

there might be more?  maybe?  i don’t really know.

i did say that i have been horribly remiss.

okay.  things to do; art to make; lootcrate toys to play with.

courage.

 

playing catch-up

Which totally seems my default setting of late.

But!  In my defense, I’ve been learning a bunch of new technology and becoming fluent (or, at least, more frequent) in several nerd-verses that I was only casually familiar with before.

And, I’ve taken on 3/4 of the social media for The Rainbow Hub, so that took up a little time since Google+ doesn’t have a scheduling feature.

Seriously, WTAF, Google?  Put in a freakin’ scheduling feature.  It’s, like, basic.

(I have found several options to ensure that I don’t have to babysit The Hub’s Google+ page, which is woefully underpopulated, and if you Google+, you should follow.)

I AM THE BUSIEST SQUID!

But, I’m okay with that.

I have also–in case y’all have missed my freaking out on other social media platforms (of which there are many)–applied for Dashcon.

But, let last week’s projecTransparency tell you more about that (and semiotics because MOTHERFUCKING SEMIOTICS):

My darling Susi approved of it, and there are few people more difficult to please academically than Susi.

But, yeah, Dashcon.

I know that I applied late, and I probably won’t be accepted because of it, but–OMG–I APPLIED FOR THE ARTIST ALLEY AT A DASHCON.

I feel like every moment not spent doing things for The Hub must-needs be spent doing–something.

THINGS!  STUFF AND THINGS!

ALL THE THINGS!

So–I may still be having a meltdown over the hypothetical.  *hands*

I have, due to really good sales going on, ordered more prints and a freakin’ banner.

That’s right.  A banner.

NO ONE CAN DOUBT MY COMMITMENT TO SPARKLE MOTION.

The prints are a little less pop-y and a little more abstract, so we’ll see how that goes.  A PREVIEW!

     

 

     

     

     

 

So–wide variety is wide.

And, I know some people were waiting for that flying fox, so there y’all go.

Also, very exciting, I HAVE FINALLY FIGURED OUT REDBUBBLE IN WAYS THAT DON’T END WITH ME IN TEARS and, that means, SHIRTS and STICKERS and CASES!  Oh, my!

(Seriously, I think I might have, like, 90% of this part of my artistic life sorted out.  I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.)

I’m also going to start migrating my projecTransparency videos and my stand-and-stir arting videos (with additional cross-posting!) to their relative Youtube channels here soon.  (I finally figured out how to add channels completely by chance.  I suck so hard.)

Last weird bit of tentacle-made studios news.  I know that there are some people who are wanting me to make a book out of my sketch-a-day series, and I’m thinking about Kickstarter-ing a book(let) fund.  So, that’s something to be looking for in the near future.

*THIS IS THE SOUND THAT MY ANXIETY MAKES*

Courage.

cecaelia-daily:

Evidently, today is going to be cecaelia day, literally.  See, this is what happens when I’ve been tentacles-deep in contemporary art for a Humanities lecture.

I totally adore MILK (aka Chiara Bautista).  She has such a great sensibility; plus she seems to like thinks with tentacles as much as I do.
