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Loads of my prints are outdated or on their last run.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~
### )
...on lots of stuff. )
It has been a while, hasn't it. I'll be booking a flight in a couple of hours, but I need the extra $200 to cover taxes. Its insane that taxes is nearly as much as the flight.. I suppose that because its so last minute.

In any case; this means EMERGENCY Art-Sale. I can do twenty $10 sketches... or something of that variety.

Color would be minimal. Traditional media only (meaning pencils, pens and whatever copics I can fit into the overhead) since I can do those on the road and when I get back for MangaNEXT.

If anyone is crazed enough to still want chibi's, I can work that but it'd have to wait till next month when I'm near my computer.

Pay Pal only, (to bhanesidhe @ ohshush . com) since time is of the essence. Any takers? Really, only have three hours to sort these finances out ^^;
Slots Have All Been Filled. Thanks for the interest! )

. . . when the need to work is stronger than the need to eat.
. . . when the need to create obliterates the need to sleep.
. . . when the need to laugh makes it hard to breath.
Is there any other way to live?
Saying that, I should admit I now also need pills to get to sleep. (Not sleeping pills as that would be logical, but these neat little back pain pills that wipe me out one minute and 6 hours later put a spring in my step, which is an added plus what with the New Boots! XD )

I've got to finish my portfolio this month, and somehow consolidate it into an on-line THING. Not fun. We'll see how that goes.

So, I'm capping commissions and putting an End to the Art-Sale on the Tuesday 15th.
Want art... NEED art? There's you're window. I'm looking at you [ profile] sisterpandora, [ profile] ciceronianus & [ profile] jlh

Meanwhile I now need Excedrin since they've started jack-hammering the pavement on my street corner, which living on the ground floor means they're drilling through my bedroom windows. :(
Step 3.C] RE: Holiday Sale. If I haven't replied yet to your commission request or comment that does not mean I'm not doing. Quite the opposite actually, it took more time to write up the "No, I can't take on your work load and here's why" e-mails than I'd thought. You'll be hearing from me soon.
Just sort of wanted to clear up a thing that happens to be biting me on the ass lately. Read more )
Thank you [ profile] kuchisake_onna for making such a lovely specimen with which to poke at.

Step 2.C] RE: 2008 Conventions. Every comment, e-mail and response was noted and it cleared up my head in a big way. I can't express my thanks enough, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, no really. Because now I can move onto bigger things.

Like the long awaited...
Step 4. I've been offered a show in LA. I'm to understand it's an infamous Comic Shop that hosts art shows for local artists year-round. A friend, whose cousin owns it, threw my name into the hat and I said yes. [My exact words were "oh, maybe. I don't know, uh, I can't think of--well, I'd like to but I don't have anything--can I get back to you-won't take no for an answer will you?"] There is a bit of contract signing and schedule okay-ing but I'm aiming for spring [preferably April] which gives me from now till then to put together something resembling productivity, creativity and sense. That's good, yeah? :D

As soon as I get confirmation from them I'll have things, like Dates, Times and Location but I'm playing it fairly close to the chest until then.

One major difficulty is wrapping my brain around setting up a gallery when I'm on the other side of the continent. But I'm a big picture girl, the rest will sort itself out...or I'll make an ass of myself, which I'm pretty fine with as well. This is pretty much why I solicited help from a faery, that and handholding.

If by some miracle this manages to work out the show will be dragged then to London, possibly August. And honestly, wherever else I wrangle an invite and a couch to sleep on.

Actually, I think the more difficult part is deciding what to put in it. I'm good with organizing galleries, mounting and transporting things, insurance and reassurances, but I've never been the artist victim in the hot-seat before. Heheh, oooh nerves, they're all tingly just thinking.

This leads to Step 5., no, not the tingling.

Happy Thursday! . . . it is Thursday, right?

My house is a vortex of time-suckage so I'm not sure.

Just want to post about two quick things with regards to the master plan;
Step 2. Looks like MoCCA is much more a Go than I'd have thought. My dad is being amazingly encouraging and I want to see if I can strong-arm my cousin Ronnie' into showcasing art there, to validate the table size and price. Also, I'm now going to NY AnimeFestival. I wasn't before but then Jo Chen announced she was going and I had my credit card in my hand before the page was finished loading. :) I'm weak I know it, but I wouldn't have it any other way. It's good though I always feel a bit stupid to miss out on an event in my own backyard because I couldn't be bothered to get on the D-train. It's nice that East Coast is being rather kind to me lately...unlike the West Coast, who doesn't want to pick up the damned phone.

Step 3. Holiday Art-Sale! I wanted to add, if you want a product, like the Personalized Calendar I did last year, or Prints left over from cons previous, or even items on the CafePress store [before they get pulled down], feel free to ask. I'd be pleased as punch to share things and not just commissions. Fact is, ready made would probably be less stressful than newly made and holiday timely.

That's all for now, so back to the festivities. Funny hats, fancy drinks and Food Comas All Around!

3] Having a Holiday Art-Sale! What with the free time and lack of funds it seems like a logical step, yeah? bit of a brain spasm, feel free to skip this bit )

So...Officially, I am open for commissions. Preferably busts or chibi's, holiday or fandom themed, etc. OC's are difficult without enough time or background information and anything as detailed as a full character design would just have me weeping anyway. Prices are from as little as $10 - $50, based on complexity and timeliness [meaning if you need it in a week, to be shipped to Asia for someone's birthday and/or to arrive the day before Christmas, expect to be charged a bit more for shipping, packaging and stress manual labor.] I'd rather a lot of little commissions than two huge million dollar ones that will crush my spirit.

Make sense? If you have question or requests, e-mail me. bhanesidhe @ ohshush . com

Now, if you'd like help and art doesn't appeal to you, you could always just donate for the sake of kindness. I'm not above charity [seriously, I haven't gotten a pay check since May] or you can pimp me out how you like. 'How you like' I mean Art-Wise and by 'pimp' I mean promote, I specify because I don't feel like explaining myself to family when they inevitably get wind of this.

(Basic Pricelist is here - - for anyone needing something structured to wrap their brain around. Or, skip through the "sale" tag to familiarize yourself with the options & process, but there isn't any time limit on this sale, which sounds open ended but actually mean I'll pull the plug on a whim.)
This step was supposed to be Step 4, but since a phone call in the morning will decide the fate of the original Step 3, everything needs to be shuffled around a bit. So, revamped Step 4 first thing in the morning . . . erm, West Coast time ^^;
