end of the year round-up–of a sort

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.

doodles and notes and commissions, oh my!

so–because i’m trying to scrape up enough dosh to (re-)rent my old studio space, i thought i’d remind y’all about commissions?  that commissions are a thing that i do?

and, patreon.  but, mostly commissions.

ennui, flop-bunnies, and the pop culture show

so, because of a slip-of-the-tongue in a video a week or so ago, i now have flop-bunnies.

and, because i’m a glutton for punishment, i’m participating in the Pop Culture Show at the ARTgarage in January.

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.

projecTransparency and results of the postcard printing

So, I asked y’all for your suggestions about what I should print for the upcoming Definitely DePere–which, by-the-by, I’m going to be at Polito’s Pizza on May 9th if y’all wanna come see me–and here were the final decisions.

 

If your faves didn’t make the cut this time, DO NOT DESPAIR!  They’ll be in the next batch.  I swear.

And, because–omg–busy week was busy, here’s my new display at the ARTgarage:

left to right: abacus-map, gilt hive, and Medusa

And, projecTransparency videos because I have been doing them!  I just got behind last week (in a fit of the anxieties about ordering prints, actually), so didn’t do a dedicated blog post.

Also, Eurovision reviewing for The Rainbow Hub.

Yes, this is a thing I do now.

VIDEOS!

Last week’s:

This week’s:

Okay, y’all.  I HAVE ALL THE THINGS TO DO.

Stay safe out there.

Courage.

*crashes through the window*

So, I’ve been ears deep in writing (and playing the most massive game of catch-up from the Winter Holidays–seriously, who even thinks having three massive obligation-celebrations within a 6-week period is a good idea?), and that means I’ve been neglecting y’all.

My poor, poor darlings.

I really need to do these posts more often so they’re not so fucking long.

On the upside, I’ve pick-up writing a twice-a-month meta column on Welcome to Night Vale, which is a-MAZ-ing.

Seriously, I’m never going to get over getting paid to write about things that I read, watch, listen to.

Best gig is best.

And, in Art Land, I’ve started as sketch-a-day project to get me drawing everyday (because I’m honestly kind of suck out loud at drawing.  DON’T TELL.) and trying new things in a low-risk kinda way.

The results are happy-making for the most part.

My favorites so far are:

Tentacles and WtNV are definitely things that happening. *hands*

I–haven’t processed the photos from the Steampunk Show Opening (not that there are a lot because I didn’t really take any during the Opening since there were THINGS going on that I had to handle), but there are better ones that these.

The Festival of Lights in the Church of Αρcετηεθτηισ

(The Moon, The Deep, and The Devourer)

Αρcετηεθτηισ, oh triadic wondrous horror,

illuminate the darkness of winter

as the light waxes and wanes

and the night envelopes us

.

Αρcετηεθτηισ, all hail!

The Moon, The Deep, and The Devourer

each in their orb

awaiting cold (re)birth

—a fragment from The Words of the Devourer by Τηεοσιδ, Third Speaker of Αρcετηεθτηισ

The Dress Uniform of Leftenant-Colonel Αβιγαιλ Ποδεσ, Order of the Silver Octopus

This is the dress uniform of Leftenant-Colonel Αβιγαιλ Ποδεσ, Order of the Silver Octopus and Oathsworn Protector of the Realm, 7th Regiment under The Victoria Elisabeta the Second, 5th in success of Victoria the Great, may She live in Αρcετηεθτηισ’ eldritchian splendor forever and ever—Madness Be!—who decreed that the Empire, long may it shine, should forever and always be ruled and protected by the women of Her realm.

These’ll suffice for now, yeah?

The Steampunk Show goes down the 30th, so if you’re wanting to see it, best get to the ARTgarage Tuesday or Wednesday.

And–the new Quarter starts Saturday, so that’s also a THING I’m working on.

 

It–doesn’t really have a name yet.  Something about jellyfish and lightboxes and phoenixes.

So, really uncomplicated.

*hands*

As always, if you’d like to read the things I write, please mosey on over to The Rainbow Hub and look through my tag.

My Libertine Ladies piece on Cersei Lannister has almost 800 notes on tumblr.  *eeps*

Courage.
