#kitsunekon, #artour, character creation, & other suspects

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!

drive–by: animinneapolis, digital/sketch-a-days, and 9 years of blogging

so, first things the first.

ANIMINNEAPOLIS IS THIS WEEKEND!

*FIREWORKS*

so, yeah, i’m going to be heading out shortly so that i can set-up tonight.  i’ve got loads of things, but mostly, i have a bunch of new 1″ buttons because i’m a weirdo.

(i particularly fond of the “twee as fuck” and the “gender terrorist” ones.)

but, yeah, come and see me and maybe buy some things.

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?

the never-endingness of cons, i.e., plattecon is tomorrow

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.

drive-by: leaving for #AMKE

so, i’m heading out to AMKE in, like, an hour.

i’m going to be vending in the artist alley in booth E2, so y’all should stop by and see me.

*quietly freaks the fuck out*

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.
