Especially to the Girl at the Library, so into reading "City of Bones" she didn't stop to watch where she walked... (I can only assume you go to PS.95, because of how young & petite you are, although I went to MS.143 around the bend & couldn't have been an inch bigger. Apologies for not getting your name.)

Normally an internet embargo on my part means I'm up to artistic doings and preparing for a flood of creative-goodness. And maybe this is, in a lengthy roundabout distinctly unfun way— in November of 2010 I sought treatment for problems with my joints, specifically my wrists & knees. And in the logical progression, for the depression that would follow. By December (17th to be morbidly precise) tremors and weakness in my hands made it difficult if not impossible to brush teeth, comb hair, open doors, type and if you haven't guessed yet, draw.

Anyone local, or who saw me over New Years/MoCCA Artfest certainly noted I am sporting my time-tested knee & hand braces once more! Tried and true little buggers they are. But by February physical therapy was proven ineffective. Now all sorts of experts have started poking, Ortho, Vascular, Neurological, etc.

I've never been a super healthy person but even at my worst, I've always had art to keep my sane. Going into my seventh month of being incapable of creating, commuting or even computing, I don't think I've ever been so scared—
  • And then I get a praise from my ambulance driver ('sup Anesdi)
  • And then I get written up in a school paper.
  • And then get things like this forwarded to me; 
Phrases like "Courage" and "Fearless" aren't banter for me, they're works of art. Now I am learning "Faith" is as well.

Things are going to get harder before they get better but I feel like a fighter again.

Thank you for that :)

NYCOMICON 2010; in the practice of "If you have nothing good to say… say nothing at all" I haven't recapped. It wasn't dire but it was a mess, which is something I've come to expect. Elisa Lau | Pinkimoon, table-mate, artist, designer, food-wrangler extraordinaire certainly improved the experience. But it was the handful of friends and fans who found me out that made it worthwhile. Gracias, Thank You, Merci, Arigatô, Danke, etc! Truly. :D

Next time I'll be over on the NYAF; I don't know about anyone else but I felt more welcoming there, more organic, festive even!

I know, location-wise, NYAF was put upon, but the ComciCon side was just a mess, a wash of lookie-loo's and industry people flooding the talent, vice-versa. It didn't make for a very creative or happy environment to cultivate... did I mention that I love Elisa? Really, truly, we're meaning to do this again just with much more of a joint effort and NEW items! [On SHOP NEWS I will keep you posted!]

Loads of my prints are outdated or on their last run. That being said PRINT-SALE!! as low as $1, because;
  1. I'd like them to have happy homes. This will be the lastprinting for more than a few of these.
  2. this will cover cost, did I mention NYCOMICON was a bit of a bust,
  3. it will buffer future endeavors, as I endeavor awesome things on behalf of the Future~

Regrettably I'm a patient person. I take a lot of hits to the chin before I rant... and then I rant and rant and rant tirelessly until things are resolved. And honestly if I'm pushed to the point to ranting, dear world, you deserve what's coming.

But I realize now, I post more often the rants than the resolutions. So, concerning my previously subject rant, I'm (happily) obliged to report on Con Anti-Harassment Project!

This isn't to say 'oh, something is being done, so I can sit back and feel secure'. Exactly the opposite! Something is being done because we're doing it!

So, Go, Poke-Prod, Contribute, RePost. Inform the masses... thanks for reading and for the little peace of mind that's granted me. ^_^
Conventions can't completely eliminate harassment. They can be prepared to act upon it when it occurs, and send a clear message to harassers that they are not welcome.

Comics oughta be fun. Comic book conventions ought to, as well. But as long as harassment goes on and there is no clear-cut official written rules on convention behavior and what to do in circumstances or physical or mental assault, our hobby runs the risk of alienating and endangering those within it.

There has to be an even medium. Turning a blind-eye isn't an option...neither is going into a blind rage. This isn't a feminist thing, it's a humanist thing. Because we are human first. We should start acting like it. Cross Post. ReBlog. Do Something. please.

Geek! O Sucha geek. Posted because last week I promised [ profile] otemen I'd take at least one picture when it arrived. I took, maybe 20, and in much more than half of them I'm giving myself the "Evil-Eye". In a few of them I was visibly a couple of others came off looking sort of coy, but I know that look too well. It's the "3 Seconds Till I put My Foot Up Your Ass" smirk, that I can never quite contain. These four are tolerably enuff. I really Do Not Enjoy taking photos.WARNING! Photographic evidence of said Steve Moffat loff [Dr. Who related dorkery] ensues! )
I want to have sex with this man's words!
That Is All.

My worst habit; I'm constantly falling in love with long dead fandoms. Ohh and I fall hard.

The latest one, My So-Called Life. '30 Second' rant )
"Edge Of The Earth.mp3" [6.33MB] " from their Self-Titled Debut [30 Seconds to Mars]
"The Kill.mp3" [6.63MB] " from their Subsequent Release [A Beautiful Lie]

for the sake of comparison
(Live Version) Acoustic - Echelon.mp3 [7.2MB] / (Studio Version) Echelon.mp3 [7.99MB]
And the fandom part of it? Read more... )

People, when reviewing, say something, anything constructive. Tell me I can't spell, or I mix metaphors, or I always write 'too' instead of 'to' or I missed a hundred punctuations, plague my prose with run on sentences and that I've got no plot or sense of story-telling. All of which is very likely, but do not hate because of you're idiocy. I mean seriously, pick your battles, nimrod.

x-posted, because today I'm rant happy! :)

Man, my starved-for-new-music mood is creeping up on me again. But on the highest of high notes; my skechers are on their way. No more curb-side disservice for this clumsy elf, no siree.
