Hope you all have an awesome New Year's and be safe! Not going to do much today other than lounge around, watch Doctor Who and a bit of jewelry work to post in my shop soon. Speaking of jewelry, I made my first sale! I'm very excited and I hope the customer will enjoy my creation! This motivates me to pursue jewelry making even more. Looking forward to a great year.

Tophats and Arsenal

Been so busy lately still trying to collect my arsenal needed for my jewelry craft. I hope to have the first two lines out by the end of December. I have so many ideas rolling around in my head to the point that I could burst from creative overflow. In other news I finally purchased a top hat during my adventures at Little 5 Points - it's not much but it's a start. I'll be collecting a few more in the future and may start making some of my own. :)

Stay Tuned & See You @ the Next Post!

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Remember,  Remember the fifth of November 
The gunpowder treason and plot 
I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason 
Should ever be forgot 

Remember, Remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot 
A stick or a stake for King James' sake
Will you please give us a fagot 
If you can't give us one, we'll take two;
The better for us and the worse for you!

Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012

What's up kiddies! 

As promised, here's an update about my Anime Weekend Atlanta experience. 

As you guys recalled, I took part in the Artist Alley for the first time with my friend; and I must say that we had a blast! We were so nervous at first, naturally, but with the support of our friends and the warm welcome received from seasoned Artist Alley members, we got into the jump of things quickly. The main objective for my first time was to learn as much as I could about people's reaction to my work in order to see what I was doing right or wrong. 

I can say that I did do a few things wrong -- but this was corrected with the advice of an aforementioned seasoned artist--a friend of my friend -- and he helped out a Great Deal ! I was happy to find that many people found my creations eye catching -- although there were a few that didn't share that sentiment; I took note of this to to see how I can improve on my craft. Time went back very quickly which I was surprised ; I assumed it would drag by since we were stationed in one spot for up to 7-8 hours - but quite the contrary. 

All in all, it was a very fun weekend . I learned much that will be incorporated into my future projects, saw some awesome cosplay, and met some wonderful people. I'm definitely looking forward to the next Artist Alley event. 
Huge thanks to my friend who pushed me to show my art and encouraged me into doing commissions ; and thanks to everyone else who supported us during this experience. I had the opportunity to take pictures of some great cosplayers - although I wasn't able to take as many as I would've liked due to being stationary for most of the convention, nonetheless, I'm glad that I was able to take the few that I did. Enjoy!

Crafts in the Making

As promised here is a sneak peek of what I'm working on for AWA ; these little guys are so cute! I have a huge batch of them to work on-and as for what's going to be put in them. Well you'll just have to wait and see!

Sup kiddies!  Not much to post other than I'm still working on my charms for the Artist Alley.  Will be taking a trip over to my friend's place to continue planning for the big day as she'll also be making her debut at the Artist Alley; we're going to be sharing a table, so figuring out how to set up is important. In other news, DragonCon is this weekend- and once more I'm unable to attend. It's funny that I lived in GA for 10+ years and yet I've never went to one DragonCon. Well there was last year when my friend snuck me in for a short time period, but I still was unable to enjoy the con fully. So help me I will make sure to attend next year. It's a top priority on my list.

Back from Outer Space...

Apologies for such a long delay. After the inevitable event impacted my life, so much has happened in the previous months that I had no drive to update the blog at the time. Now that I'm getting back on top of things, I'll promise to try and post at least twice a month/three times at the max. Now time for an update:

For starters, I purchased a new lens for my camera! It's a Canon 50mm that's perfect for portraits and taking pictures up close. One of the best features of the lens is its ability to bring the main object of interest into focus and push everything else in the background out of focus.

 As I had mentioned before aside from traditional & digital art, my other passions are photography and crafting. Photography wise, I would love to become an event photographer for anime/sci-fi /gaming conventions and local festivals. I decided to make the investment so I can improve my skills with both fixed and zoom lenses. I spared some time to get some practice in with my new lens at the Atlanta Jazz Festival that took place back in May during the Atlanta Jazz Festival:

These were a few shots I managed to capture before my battery pack died on me. It was my fault since I didn't keep it on the dock so that it could receive a full charge. This was also a lesson learned : Always have an extra battery pack with you. I'll really have to keep that in mind when I attend Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA) this year. 

Speaking of AWA, this year I'll be in the  Artist Alley for the first time! I'm so excited and nervous all the same as I've longed to start crafting my own charms and jewelry pieces for others to wear and enjoy. However, since this is my first time, I'm taking big risks by letting this convention be my trial and error experiment. On top of that I'm working on a very tight schedule as AWA is a month away.  I hope I get everything finished in time -- I kinda have this habit called procrastination... I'll do my best to post my progress on here and a sneak peek of what I'll be selling. 

Last but not least: yesterday was my birthday! I am now 27 years of age and have only three more years before I'm a grown up (as my older sis puts it) .  It was a quiet birthday which was fine with me-- I had a small barbeque with family members which was pleasant. Funny thing is although I'm a bit older, I still feel like a kid. I guess my sister is right about the grown up part.

Due to a huge life-altering event that's happened, I won't be posting here for a while. Not to worry, it won't be indefinite, just until I can come to terms with what's going on at the moment and overcome it. Until next time... signing off.

Let Me Tell You About Homestuck Part Deux

It's Friday! Friday! Gotta Get Down on Friday! Everybody's ready for the weekend week... ahem, sorry about that. I was supposed to be getting back with you all about the Homestuck event. Now where was I... ah yes, here we go. 

There were plenty of  Homestuck cosplayers at the hangout. They did a pretty decent job with their troll makup and outfits. I wonder how frustrating it was to remove all that body paint off afterwards!

 Trolls Trollin’  LOL!

Everyone who attended the Hangout were asked to bring canned goods to donate to charity.

Over 300 cans were donated; as a fun experiment, the cans were used to build 'Can Town'.

Winner of the Contest

The ones who participated were automatically entered in a contest to donate the most cans.  Naturally, one person won and the prize was a nifty Homestuck scarf.

Can Town at Night

My friends and I spent most of the time drawing at the hangout drawing and singing along to our favorite tunes.

Ashley and Octavia break out into song 

There was a moment when the night turned into a Party when everyone gathered onto the skating rink and started dancing--well everyone except for me;  I found this to be the best time to capture the moment. 
Shayla doing the ROBOT

Work it Gurl!!!

As the hangout was coming to a close we participated in creating a HomeStuck art mural to commemorate our time there.

So Many Talented Artist! 

I had a blast! This was my first time being locked in for an event , but it was sweet to try out something new for a change; and hanging out with my best buds made it all the better! Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to post more events such as these. With several anime conventions coming up,  I'm sure I won't miss a moment of it.

So Stay Tuned and See You At the Next Post!

Let Me Tell You About Homestuck Part I

Happy New Year! Wow 2011 flew by so quickly! Looking forward to 2012!

December was a pretty uneventful month except for the Hangout. I was invited to a Homestuck all nighter at the Sparkles skating rink a couple weeks back. It was a pretty fun gathering considering that it was a lock-in event from 11pm-7am. I had the opportunity to hang out with some friends and interact with fellow artist and homestuck fans alike. (Due to so many pictures, this will be broken down into two posts.)

Oh, btw: for those who aren't familiar with Homestuck; it's an online webcomic started by a guy named Andrew Hussie about  about a group of trolls embarking on a quest. The webcomic is actually the 4th installment to the series which is posted on his site MS Paint Adventures. The comic itself is an interactive Flash animation/video game that allows the readers to participate as they follow along with the story. It has become an internet phenomenon that exploded into a huge fanbase. 

So now that you have that brief synopsis, check out his site when you have the chance.  On with the show!

My friends Ashley, Shayla, and Octavia waiting to go inside. We stood in the blistering cold for what seemed like hours and felt as if it would take forever to be admitted into the skating rink.


The meetup held up to 200 people!  We had the opportunity to enjoy skating, laser tag, dancing and dined on pizza, pretzels, soda and popcorn (my favorite junk food combo, lol) ; as for breakfast, doughnuts and juice. 

This is one of my favorite pictures; no Homestuck scene is complete without Faygo! That all for now kiddies! Part 2 will be posted soon. Stay Tuned!
