HI guys @__@ So there's an anonymous artist alley survey going around and I wanted to spread the word for those who aren't in the facebook group! It's just to gauge whether people did better or worse in the new South Hall location and to see how much a difference your seating location makes. The link is here:

docs.google.com/forms/d/1wGdhl…

If you guys know an artist who tabled this year at Fanime please forward it along!

So yeah~ hope to see you guys there :)


|| HIDEO ||


So.. to utilize the power of social media and the interwebs I am going to shamelessly promote what I've been working on (for about a year...).
I first stumbled upon Hideo (hideoconcert.com/) at my university, where they debuted their first show! It's basically a concert medley of acting, music from Japanese games/anime, and awesome projection art. Pretty awesome stuff.

They were interested in making a graphic novel counterpart to their story, so I hopped on board as the colorist/"letterer" (I put in the text :p ) and well, a year later and... as I am furiously coloring away to meet my deadline this week... it is finally going to be printed and sold at Fanime '12. It's going to be in full color, around 17-20 pages of awesome.

But before anything you should go see the show. It's definitely something different... the music is chillingly good and the projection art is done by the amazing DanHowardArt- gorgeous, gorgeous backgrounds. I've already seen it twice and I plan on going again!

ANYWAY IF YOU ARE AT ALL INTERESTED. Tickets are here: www.hideoconcert.com/blog/tick… and only $25! After the show anireal and I will be signing posters (www.hideoconcert.com/blog/wp-c…), (www.hideoconcert.com/blog/wp-c…) and the graphic novels- hope to see you there!
So... sadly me and :iconbopx: are #72 on the waitlist... I dunno if we'll get in. q__q
I'm looking for someone who has some table room to spare! I will split the cost of the table and make you goodies; I don't need much room either, I will probably have smaller things for sale.

OR even better, if you happen to know anyone who is selling a full table, let me know!

But yeah. If I don't end up tabling I'll still be going to Fanime so yeaaah LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE GOING so I can stalk you *cough*

Anyhow- I will hopefully have some stuff up, or maybe upload some older stuff I never posted.. we shall see.. 'A'
And as always thank you new watchers / old watchers... for bothering watch me.. T__T;; I am so busy I don't even draw nowadays.
First of all, thanks guys for the birthday wishes :'D !! I had a good birthday... turkey and cake rrr

Secondly... I don't draw anymore. ): I tumble about food now... I started up a co-food blog, and I think you guys should check it out. LOL /shameless plug:

c-two.tumblr.com

And in other news... well, there's really nothing, aside from OMG finals week. agh.
Hey guys...

I have been dead. -__- College has been killing me. However, I'm switching from biology to architecture... which is just as hardcore.
So I will be more dead.

IN the mean while, I am going to shameless plug.

I entered a tshirt contest! If you guys like my design, I'd appreciate a vote :3 (to vote, just click the link and "like" it on facebook). I'd loveee you foreveer

2011

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 4, 2011, 1:10 AM
So I've been... not very active for the past like, half year. Oops. Something called school came and messed me up ):

So I'm so sorry for not replying to comments very quickly or thanking for watches, so I'll take the chance to do it now! Thank you for watching me! I just reached over 1,100 and I'm really grateful that anyone would bother following my artwork.

Annd I've been meaning to get my ass on commissions. I will finish them hopefully sometime by the end of my winter break, which is in two weeks haha.

Anyhow. SO IT'S TIME FOR ME TO GET A LITTLE NOSTALGIC AND REVIEW 2010:

First of all, it was a looong year. I ended my senior year in high school, graduated and got into a school I never even dreamed of getting accepted to. And now that I'm here it's been pretty awesome, aside from the academic WWII (well, I got what I signed up for), and I've met tons of cool people.

Art-wise, I think I've improved a little, at least. lol. This year I was supeeer surprised to get another DD on a piece from my AP art portfolio. Also scored a painting job at school, so I get paid (little, but still monies) to art c: Unfortunately starting college = busy tiems, so I don't really get to art as much anymore for myself.. D: BUT PERHAPS I WILL BE PRODUCTIVE and do some stuff over break.


So that was 2010, because sadly my life consists of only school and art. lol
Now for New Years resolutions:

1. Do better in school
2. Figure out what to major in/do with my life
3. Become a super art genius and improve a lot
4. Exercise more
5. Be less of a shellfish
6. Improve speaking/social skills

If I can achieve 50% I will consider 2011 a success, with the curve. P: What are your resolutions?

Anyhow, hope you guys are doing well. Happy New Years~

AND THEN I SAW.. AMAZING COSPLAYS BY :iconbluebirdjoy: and :iconshanghai-lights:!! THEY WENT AS CHARS FROM :iconyuumei:'s KNITE AND GAAH IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL. lsakdjfa guavi.deviantart.com/art/xingk…

At 10 am I went to uuh.. supervise the event I was in charge of.. but I ended up MCing and mic whoring orz but I'm a pretty terrible MC. Once I finished everyone just kinda like ran out LOL

And theeen I just patrolled pretty much the rest of the time. ;; Nothing really interesting happened, except that I had to fail yell at people for running on the roof.. yeah that's it. Haha

So by the time I was finished with all my stuff all the artists had left ;__; sadness.

We finished break down and afterwards I went to a concert and a party.. but the party got broken up by the police so I went home early. XD (lol another story on its own..)

I'm not good at elaborating lol, but that was pretty much what happened. Me and :iconfeyuca: and :iconwithstarlikewords: will -hopefully- table at Animation on Display and Fanime, so *A* if you are going you should totally let me know~

Noow I gotta study for midterm on Friday.. q^q

it's 3 am and it's time to hustle


usually past 2 am I like to ponder the questions of life:

1) how do I prove that the lim lnx/x as x approaches infinity is, indeed, zero?
2) how the fuck am I going to finish all this homework?



sometimes I really wonder why I'm here, lol.

also that tutorial I was gonna do.. that was a lie I don't feel like finishing it. It's also not a tutorial, but a cg walkthru. But here is how far I got before I gave up (which is.. surprisingly far):

whooooo random musing time

so let's say, hypothetically speaking, you can obtain a LOT of money in a very illegal way (maybe involving killing somebody or something)
but you would take all said money and use it for something good. Liiike idk paying for a bunch of dying kids' surgeries that will save their lives or building schools in Africa or something. Would you do it? hahaha
