>I am writing from San Diego, home of the largest collection of geeks in the world. Except MIT, perhaps. It is really an interesting collage of people that come to the comic con. There are the Costumed Enthusiasts, the pasty white pimple faces, the normals ( I would like to think I am included in this group), the talented and the pretty girls that like drive the whole bunch of us nuts. I have seen many different panels that I have enjoyed, though I wish they were longer and smaller in numbers. Today I braved the main exhibit, upon hearing how crazy it can get on Saturday. It is already quite busy. Last years attendance according to SDCC people was in the number of 150,000 people, and this year I have heard that there was some where between 200,00 and 300,000 registered. Such and increase that there is talk about moving the convention to another city in order to accommodate the numbers.
>Thanks to all that came to see the show, and I hope you all found something you like for your space. It was a little slow, but it was a great chance to talk to others that are grinding away at their work.
Anyways it is now time to focus on my graphic novel on the Mad Trapper. I hope to have it done by Comic Con in San Diego at the end of July.Here are a few pages that I have just completed today.
>Hey all I will be at the Royal Bison Art and Craft Fair in Edmonton. May 30 – May 31. I will be selling print and all kinds of goodies.
Here is a selection of the items that I will be selling at the Royal Bison. Not to fret what is left will be available on a Etsy account that I have started.
A couple of nesting dolls that I have painted up. The second one glows in the dark!!!!
The follow are Screen Prints I did. They are limited prints, Bookworm is 10, and the rest are 5.
These are some lamps that I made using recycled Nalogene Bottles, Hiking or Trekking Poles,
I saw that was cut down and LED Christmas lights. Recycled and low power consumption.
While I was Screen printing I did several on Organic Cotton to make into pillows (fill is reclaimed from pillows that had their day). The frills on the sides are different combos of Green, Blue, and Pink. There are, as well, four different characters on the pillows.
These are some Stuffed Animals out of felt (Also reclaimed stuffing). I had made similar characters out of wood blocks when I was in school and have since not been able to find a shop in Edmonton to cut the blocks. So I attempted to make them out of felt. There is a Rhino, Pigeon and Beaver.
>Here are some almost final images on the mural. And all of the wonders that they wanted painted. Now there are alot of things that I would like to add to fill up the space but, time is a factor and there is a concern that the additions will distract from the wonders.
