poo. Well, now I have the post-con sads. I was really super impressed with the way the Alley ran this year, there was at all times water! Do you need some water? How are you on water? Does anybody need some water?! Looooooove.... Seriously, that was the best. So thanks to the awesome AA staff for taking care of us, and thanks to everybody who came by the table to say hiiiii!!!!
I still have some kinda weirdo flu sort of a thing. I haven't been able to eat a whole lot since friday, and all of my arms and legs are screaming at me for carrying too much and wearing shoes of an offensive height and structure. We did our costumes on Friday, which was also the day the down escalator quit working/was shut off. So I got a crash-course in decending stairs on superheels. But other than that, Team Galactic was a hit! We actually got to the show on Thursday, but there were not very many a people there yet it seemed.
BUT THERE WAS A LORI.
Who once again SAVED MY LIFE, as she does at least fifty times any convention we work together at, this time by sharing her leftover grates with us, and giving us a way to display other than flat on the table. She also invited me along to help with the digital coloring panel on Friday, which I'm hoping I didn't murder horribly. I was sorta dressed like some kinda lady Gaga.
You know the last time I did a panel at A-kon, I was dressed like Orochimaru? I looked like I crawled out of a ditch, and I think they'd put me with webcomickers. I have no idea why I was there, it was very awkward, but hopefully extremely amusing.
Rabbit trail aside, we had a blast going over our coloring techniques and discussing important issues in digital coloring and printing, such as why too much color burn/dodge is not a good idea even if it looks fancy on your monitor, and "surprise magenta". Then we drew a comic about a T-rex shark, Twilight, one unicorn, and an airship, in about .... 8 minutes. For great justice!!!
Thank you Lori, from the bottom of my weird little heart <3. YOU COMPLETE ME!!!!!
We also had an awesome food interlude from
, who brought glorious gifts of bbq, rice, veggies, and kimchi. I love me some kimchi TO THE EXTREEEEEME!! So thanks so much you guys, hope to see you next year if the A-kon gods smile upon us somehow getting a table again!
I got to do a sweet prints trade with the fabulous
, and met back up with the rest of the A-kon Artists Alley friends... It really is more like some kind of best family reuinion ever, and I hope we can hang out next year too. I also met a new art friend,
in the upstairs alley and purchased one of her fantastically beautiful prints,
-which I will place on my wall as soon as I'm back to school. I had the hardest time choosing between her artings because it was just great getting lost in them, no ledge is left unloved <3. I'm seriously inspired.
TIME TO STOP FANGIRLING..
Back to work. There's still a lot to take care of before the next show, and a great huge piece of artwork for a very patient person who's been waiting a really long time for me to get back to him. I'm seriously excited to finally be able to sit still with it ;=;. But thank you everybody who helped make this show possible, successful, fun, awesome, and full of all the energy and light that colors the absurd world of anime conventions. See you next year!
