Today’s dedicated to con prep for this weekend’s HeroesCon in Charlotte, and lord, is there a lot of it. I did most of my printing last week, so today is all jumbo prints. Then I pack up Sir Printy and my art equipment, pack a suitcase for suitable Con dress-up (Leather Saturday, vaguely Ren-Faire Sunday…Friday […]
I am marginally more cheerful this afternoon, my natural ebullience having overcome my gloom. If I have a raspberry chair then so be it…I’ll paint the other three in their respective colors, and then if it’s still eating at me, I’ll repaint it. Meanwhile, I have been amusing myself before the con with teeny tiny paintings. These […]

I hope it dries darker, or the lighting has a serious effect, or something…or else I will have just painted a defenseless chair a really intense raspberry pink.

Today is Dragonbreath launch day! There’s a launch party at Chapel Hill Comics on June 27th, from 1-3. Come out! Please! (You can bring kids, if you have any lying around, as this is a kid’s book and thus presumably a kid friendly event, although I don’t know if any will be there other than Kevin’s, […]
Oof. Nasty nightmare that somebody had been screwing with my fish tank and left live rock scattered all over the studio.
