Art musings...

I'm rather relieved no one stuck a last-minute bid in on the Crystal Fairy auction. At $19.99, I would have been getting about $1 per hour of work. *wry* I'll pass, thanks, and hold onto it until I'm famous enough to get something decent for it. Give me time! And anyway, I need work for my show in October.

Hey! I've got ACEO's of Uncovering Atlantis and Practicality for sale. I'm going to skip eBay... too much work for their pound of flesh, frankly. They are a super limited run of just 4 apiece, signed, numbered, laminated, and corner rounded. (They do look cool, if I say so myself.) $5, includes shipping (insurance optional and extra), claim them here or email me - it'll go in order that things hit my inbox.

Got all the Atlantis files uploaded, and called in to pay for the monster. (Ow, ow, my wallet!) Got an answering machine, and am waiting on a return call. (And I gotta go to the bathroom, but haven't wanted to be away long enough for the trek to the outhouse... *fidget*)

Got to art this morning, and last night at gaming, and I'm fairly pleased with this piece. I have two more in the same series thumbnailed, and a fourth considered. I think I'll have the first finished this week... I'm back to my comfort zone with pretty girls and ink and watercolor. Blue ink, this time, though... black would have been too overpowering for the subject.

Got my artwork back from InConJunction - nothing broke, though the box looks a little worse for wear. Again, it'll give me more to show at the fair, at DragonCon and at the October Gullivers show. I probably won't be mailing out to many/any more cons - the shipping prices are hefty, and the hassle is high for the possible/unlikely returns. I'm too cheap and impatient to accept a loss for several years in a row for returns like I've heard about. I'll wait until I can afford to hit them as a vendor and wow them with EMG products in person.

Got my genesis paints (and a huge box of COOL costume clothing) from Jennie today. She's hopefully left Ft Collins by now... I expect to see her early next week. I'll have to make time soon to finish the winged cat girl piece!

Got my inbox down to 167. Still, ouch. High on the list of things to do today.

Okay, that's what I know.
