so–lion con is this weekend in st. cloud!
i’m particularly pleased with vending at this con again because last year was its first year, which was an excellent if exhausting time, and this year is shaping up to be even better, so yay on justin and katie for making it happen again!
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!
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.
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*
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?)
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.
