So Kevin and I will be doin’ MarsCon in Williamsburg VA this weekend! I am the artist guest of honor, there’ll be art in the art show, we’ll have prints for sale, Kevin will likely wear a kilt*, all will be hopefully be awesomeness. (I’ve never done MarsCon before, so this’ll be an adventure…)

I b’lieve I have my GoH panel Friday night, so if you’re attending the con, come on by! Save me from an empty room!

Meanwhile, this is what is currently on my desk.

Benjamin T. Cat and art supplies

The sad thing is that he is currently asleep in this position, completely dead to the world, using my PITT markers as a chin rest. He must be doing the feline amorphous solid thing. Angus came up and poked him a bit earlier and didn’t get more than a vague ear flick.

At least he doesn’t drool in his sleep any more. That would be an unpleasant surprise next time I inked.

*Ambient temperature will preclude me from wearing The Boots, as anything short enough not to get snagged on my own spikes will provide the approximate insulating value of toilet paper.  But I’m hoping to get them out at least ONCE this year.

    The trick for wearing boots is to wear opaque tights/leggings of some kind under your skirt, and wear long underwear under the tights. It was -12 as I walked back from the campus library last night, and my legs were pretty much fine.

      Thermal tights plus whatever you’d otherwise wear with the boots ought to work just fine, no? They make them in several different shades of black with variable levels of shiny, even.

        I agree with other readers that skirts and winter can mix well. Although I usually prefer some sort of tights or a high socks long shorts combination underneath, if it’s over 20F that’s not really needed. Of course, living in Vermont it’s more about wearing boots tall enough that the snow won’t get in the tops.

          Would have loved to see THE Ursula, but I’m only going to a con in Gothenburg and in two motnhs. :/
