My Sunday @ the Atlantic City Boardwalk Con

The Atlantic City Boardwalk Con took place this past weekend on May 13th – May 15th. I went with my hubby on Sunday to have some geeky fun! I didn’t have a table so I enjoyed walking around the show floor. We picked up two adorable shirts from Tee Turtle. They really fit our favorite hobby. I had lots of fun talking to creators like Pat Shand, Sorah Suhng and Mike Capprotti. Artist’s Alley is always my favorite place at comic conventions because I end up making new friends! Here are some photos I managed to get while I was there.

Now, I have to get ready for Awesome Con! See you all soon! 🙂

The Great Philadelphia Comic Con 2016 – Photos & Review

The Great Philadelphia Comic Con has come and gone! It was my second appearance for me and it went down this past weekend! (4/22-4/24). Once again, it was a very fun convention! Saw lots of new and familiar faces! I want to thank everyone who stopped by my table. I truly appreciate it! Visit my Online Store if you weren’t able to stop by this weekend!

More photos and my review of the con are after the jump!

International Women’s Day

 Happy International Women’s Day! These phenomenal women are only a short list of my inspirations! Top left to right: Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek with a way too excited fan (me), Tina Modotti, Ariell Johnson of Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse, Faith Ringgold, Celia Cruz, and Lee Krasner! 

First Post (and Art Goals) of 2016

Hello! It’s 18 days into the new year, so of course I have to catch up with a blog post!

New Work in Progress & My First Convention of 2016

arya web wip

This Arya Stark piece was started in 2015 and I’m still not done. 😦 Life gets in the way and more discipline is needed to finish during the weekends.  Since I commute a long way to and from my day job, it’s a little tough to be in front of a another computer right after a 8-9 hour day. After Arya, I will have a Danaerys and maybe a Jon Snow in time for the Game of Thrones premiere.

The Great Philadelphia Comic Con will be my first convention of 2016. I’m not entirely sure of the other events I want to catch, but most likely will try to get to the ones from last year. I will still look out for new places I can travel to.

Retro Con Review: Hosted by Clarence & Alabama Worley

“You’re so cool!”

Woohoo! I had a great weekend at Retro Con. 🙂 As I said in my last post, I plan on returning to this convention next year. It was lots of fun! It’s definitely a niche convention, so I would have to bring more 80’s inspired artwork. I still did okay for my first appearance. More photos and convention review after the Jump!

2014 in Review

My Best Moments of 2014:

  • Meeting & talking with Ron Glass, Alan Tudyk, and Nichelle Nichols
  • Traveling to New Comic Cons (Awesome Con & Special Edition: NYC)
  • Discovering Ello months later than everyone else 😛
  • Remembering why Tumblr is important for brands & artists: http://bit.ly/1xwHuj6
  • Buying my first car. 😀

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 42 trips to carry that many people.

Directory of Illustration #31

DoI Post

It finally came! My entry is on page 406 and this is filled with crazy-talented illustrators from around the globe. The objective of this directory is to get illustrators seen by the publishers or anyone who hires freelancers. I would like to get my work published as book covers but I know I have a lot of work ahead of me to achieve that goal. Since I also work full-time it will be a fun challenge for me. If you’re in the same boat, the hardest part is planning out time to do your own projects after spending 8-9 hours doing the same for the day job. It’s going to be a tough road, but I am willing to work for it.
