Someone actually put my art in a Treasury on Etsy!  Go check it out! It's the painting on the bottom.

I uploaded my con pics to my computer... Turns out there's 300 of them. I'm NOT resizing and posting them. Interested parties are going to get a disc of pics to do with as they please!

So far those wanting my con photos are
and my mom

Those getting my con pics as a special prezzie are

Does anyone else want them? They consist mostly of blurry photos of Patton Oswalt LOL! Not really, but there's a few head scratchers in there.

Other than that not much is going on. Work continues. Mostly for Brett. Synopsis of the secret project is almost complete! Never thought I'd get there.

My mom is having her gallbladder removed. Apparently it doesn't really do anything except occasionally malfunction and require removal. 

Sard is almost 100% paid off! I cancelled the body brushing on him after seeing photos of the Beryl brushing problems. I can do a little something with pastels.

I NEED another can of MSC though! OMG! Saint- the Volks Tony head is 90% complete! I'm debating a few painted details but then he's done! Now I just need his body back :) His face-up, layers of white pastel to look like make-up, took almost the entire can of MSC to finish. I need to get someone with an airbrush to do Saint 2.0 when this face-up chips.... Alexie is also headless in anticipation of his 5th? re-do!! OMG! Yes, I'm doing it myself...again. Barring pro-bono work from SDink I really can't afford anyone good, and none of these people are my special friends since I don't live near anyone and can't go to doll meets. So unless Lachlana takes charity cases, it's me or nothing.

Well, I'm back from EVERYTHING!  So here's the rundown!

Mayhem Festival- Well it was roasting in Fresno as usual so my cousin and I decided to skip the outdoor stuff and just arrived early to get good seats for the indoor portion. I was recovering from this annoying head cold and my sinus' were stuffed with snot. So I had to take copious amounts of kleenex with me were ever I went. I also decided to take a purse!! instead of my usual mini-backpack. (The only reason I even own a pusre is as a doll carrier for my tinies). PLUS when I was picking out my wardrobe the night before I thought to myself- what is the most rebellious thing I could wear to a heavy metal concert? The answer: Head to toe PINK. I even have a pink plastic spiked dog collar. My t-shirt was pink and had cute sushi-kitties on it.  And me, being me- had to take my own food to the concert since I knew there'd be nothing I could eat. So there I am at the mayhem festival dressed in pink with a purse full of food and kleenex! HOW MUCH MORE OLD LADY COULD I BE????

The highlight of the evening for me was Distubed- OMFingG! They rocked!! I just wished they'd played longer!  Slipknot I can take or leave, they were good, but their set was short for a headliner. Mastadon- meh... They need to learn to work a crowd better. Dragonforce was strangely entertaining, I enjoyed their old school-ness.

San Diego Comicon- Was great! 

Thursday- My luck streak winning things I don't want continues and I won two tickets to the Stargate premier Wed. evening for Annette. I was at the premier of StarGate Continuum which was great! The whole premier was really fun and took place on the deck of the Midway. I got a few pics of the stars but nothing great. Still I have requests for copies of my pics. I almost didn't go to it but decided to go anyway since we had tickets and I'm really glad I did. Another highlight of thurday was the Nordstrom Anniversery Sale which due to a stroke of luck, seems to coincide with comicon every year. I got 3 pairs of pants, a super cute sweater, and a really nice hoodie (which came in handy at the Stargate premier- it was cold on that ship's deck). I also went round to Image and talked to Kris Simon the Shadowline editor who is super nice. Met Mar Bellamy! Hi!! In person and that was cool. Fingers crossed on an Image book! Saw my friend FSC which was cool, though I never made it back to her table.

Friday- The big day! The MST3K reunion panel!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!! So good! I was in the panel room 3 panels early and sat through X-Box Live- which was a lot more interesting than I thought. I got to see a bunch of horror directors who all made cool films for X-Box. Then it was the Venture Bros. Panel- and good news- there will be a season 4! And a major cliff hanger + possible death at the end of season 3. Then it was the Robot Chicken panel- I used this panel to use the bathroom. And now comicon gives you a hall pass to leave the major rooms. Which is good but funny. THEN at long last! Misty heaven!!!! Joel was unfortunately seated behind the podium the entire time!! But I got pics of just about everyone else except Mike's wife who was seated behind the crow puppet. The panel was hosted by Patton Oswalt who was GREAT! (I love Patton Oswalt!!) So it was awesome on top on awesome. I have tons of blurry photos of him too.

Saturday- Met Mara Aum and wandered the dealers room talking to publishers. Which was fun, and hopefully productive! Fingers crossed again in hopes of a Del Rey book! Or Yen Press.'

Sunday- Last minute shopping! Got some good deals at the very last!

One of the cool things that happened was I bought a little plushie called a Haminal on Thursday and noticed that the tag had 'mine' written on it. I guessed it was someone's personal Haminal and when I took it back the next day- I was right! It was none other than the creator's very own Haminal who had been all over with her. She was so happy to get it back I got a free mini Haminal, another regular Haminal, and a discount on the sushi Haminal I bought.  The story may even appear on the website!

I got a lot of free books! Thanks to Annette and Ailene's tip on haunting the publisher's aisle. I got about 5 or 6 which was nice since I didn't have a lot of money.

Ani-Jam- Fresno anime con. Sold off all my old books at the table I split with 2 of my friends. We were in the dealer's room and I did pretty good. I didn't sell everything but I made about $370 which is a nice boost to the old bank account. AND I didn't spend any of it! Which was plus :) I had a panel and people actually came! It was good! So it's nice to maybe have fans??? I sold ONE Avigon! It's a good book!!!! Trust me! Buy more copies!
