FWA 2014 Roundup

Hello, my Creatures!

Thanks to everyone who dropped by my table in Artist Alley this weekend. It was really great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new folks. And an especial thank you to everyone who commissioned me for badges! I think I had the most fun with them this year out of any other year.

Seriously, check these out: The first three are ones I did as samples…

I’m the only one who thinks you’re cute, opossum. 

Nice. I can’t spell “hyena.” Good thing this one was just a sample badge -_-;

I did end up selling the Unikitty one. Though I was a little sad to see her go, I’m glad she went to a good home. Here are the ones I did for others:

Remind you of anyone who sells “propane and propane accessories?” Good.

It’s like someone said, “Just draw what’s in your brain, today.”

Seriously. I wanted to keep that penguin one. I am definitely sticking with the cartoony style for badges in the future! 

Thanks again to everyone that came out! FWA is one of the friendliest and well-run conventions I attend and continues to be one of my favorites. Have a great year, and I look forward to seeing you guys online and next year.

That’s all for now, and as always: Thanks for reading!

Comfy Con 2013 part II

Hello, my Creatures!

If you guys missed the panel I was part of with Jennie Breeden (The Devil’s Panties) and Angela Melick (Wasted Talent) you can check it out on YouTube here!

Due to some technical difficulties, I’m not in it until about four minutes in, when I finally gave up on the webcam and grabbed my trusty iPod Touch, but you can catch me rambling on about Art and Life all while wearing Penguin Pajamas…And I think there’s a shot of Stick Cat’s butt in there. Check out the rest of the keen stuff going on at Comfy Con here and thanks for the folks who tuned in and sharing a bit of their Friday nights with us!

That’s all for now, Creatures, and as always: Thanks for reading!

Comfy Con 2013

Hello, Creatures!

So I’ve unexpectedly added a convention to my short list of Conventions I Attend: Comfy Con 2013, November 15-17. 

How am I going to get to a convention on such short notice, and WHERE is this convention located?! It’s right here, in your computer-machine! An all digital, all online convention because last year a bunch of webcomickers wanted to have their own convention, while sitting in their living rooms. And this year they wanted to do it again.

I’ll be part of a panel tonight at 10pm with my pal Jennie Breeden (www.devilspanties.com , as if you didn’t know!) and possibly some other artists, all talking about How Do I Draw The Funny?! Okay, okay, it’s actually called “Is It Funny” and it will be on Google Hangout and you guys can ask us questions via Twitter (@surlyqueen, #comfycon) and possibly Other Methods.

If you guys want to look in on some of the other fun stuff that’s going on this weekend, check out the Convention Schedule and take a look at some of the other artists participating, all from the comfort of your very own home! Ah, The Interwebz, what would we have done without you?!

That’s all for now, Creatures, and as always: Thanks for reading!

DragonCon 2013

Hello my Creatures!

If you guys have been reading Life On a Stick (and I’m sure you have been!) you know that my immediate family in its entirety attended DragonCon with 1950s Dad and I this year. Pics or it didn’t happen, right? Well, here you go:

Heh. That’s what Mom and Dad get for not picking their own nicknames… My experience at the convention this year was as exciting as it’s been the past few times, but I had an especially good time playing tour guide for my parents, and even though we were all exhausted by the end of the weekend, everybody had a blast. Got to see one of William Shatner’s panels, which was amazing. Say what you will about the guy, but he’s a really good speaker. I especially enjoyed the story he told about faking a heart attack to win at paint ball. If you’ve got any sort of nerd-bone in your body and you get a chance to see him talk, it’s worth it. Great moments: getting Ted Naifeh to sign all my Courtney Crumrin books. Great Panels: Finding out Tailchaser’s Song (by Tad Williams) is going to be made into a feature length animated film…Seriously, almost peed myself I was so excited to see this on the agenda, it’s been a favorite book of mine since I was about 12. Great Performances: Timey Wimey Puppet Show. Doctor Who fans who didn’t already know about this, check it out on The Youtubes, this guy was great.

And what DragonCon would be complete without Great Costumes? Managed to completely forget to get pictures of my own costumes (and I had more than one!) this time around, but here’s some of my favorite from the weekend…

FWA Wrap Up

Hello, my Creatures!

Just a quick note to tell everyone that I had a great time hanging out in Artist Alley at FWA this past weekend. It was great getting to meet some new folks and see some old friends and acquaintances. Thanks to everyone that stopped by my table to chat, I had a great time! I’ll definitely be there again next year ^_^ And I’ll be posting some of the stuff I drew at the convention over on Tumblr and DeviantArt.

That’s all for now, and as always: Thanks for reading!
