*Insert Keanu Reeves noise*
Hey dudes and dudettes! It's been a long time, no?
So a little bit of an update journal, seeing as I've been pretty quiet and on a little bit of a hiatus from my computer.
1.) I got a puppy!
Holy hell, he's a wonderful little monster and is now nearly four months old. He is a Boston Terrier / French Bulldog mix and really the light of my life, I've never had the chance to bond with an animal quite like this before and it's really gotten me moving around much more. As a result I've lost nearly 30 pounds and I feel physically better then I have in a long time. My twitter has a lot of pictures of him if you're an uber nosey person like I am ( twitter.com/_Yewon_ ). His name is "Belmont". Yes, that Belmont.
2.) I'm helping to run a convention!
I'm Artist Alley head at Senshicon a neat anime/game/comic convention here in Alaska. I'm also the resident graphic designer, flyer wizard, contest holder, banner maker and... well... lots of other things haha. Also working closely with our PR & Exhibitor Coordinator. It's going to be a good year I think, with so many new events going on this year. Alongside that, I'm trying to get ready to sell my own wares this year as well (with much needed help from family).
3.) Speaking of - Art Gallery Anyone?
So, one of the events we are holding this year is an art gallery. A free gallery, where artists from anywhere (in and out of Alaska) can submit artworks to have their stuff showcased on a big section of our Exhibitors hall. The art will be seen by 3,000 people over two days (September 27th and 28th) if any of you amazing folks would like to submit some work to this gallery then please, please email me at --> firstname.lastname@example.org . And please know that this is under donation, so your prints will be donated to the convention for galleries in the future. Your name, website, and info will be posted at the bottom of the image on a note card for people to see as well. These will not be sold, or auctioned or used for profit as it's a no-pressure free gallery simply for fun.
4.) Kidney Stuff!
I've been in limbo for about a year now, hoping to get back on active list and I am so close I can taste it. I've been pressuring my coordinator to put me back on since I'm beyond all my infections and I'm doing -really- well right now, it's time to get that darn transplant. I'm really optimistic that I'll be close to getting it this year finally. There's a lot I want to do with my life, so I'm gonna just keep on pushing!
So did I leave anything out? I sure hope not. Busy busy busy bee I am, I hope to get back to drawing again soon... as soon as Belmont lets me, that is.
