I have been at cons two weekends in a row and they couldn't have been more different! The first one was Kami-con in Birmingham which I took my 14 year old niece to. She had a blast seeing all the Attack on Titan cosplayers. Not many kids in her school are into anime or reading manga, so she was thrilled to see just how many fans there are. I think she just had a great time meeting other people who had similar interests as she did and to chat with them. She also enjoyed panels on cosplaying and plans on doing a cosplay for the Atlanta con in the fall. As for me, I scored a few prints from a fellow deviant and can't wait to find them a home on my wall!
The Batman sketch print was for my husband and is actually two large separate prints, so I really need to plan where I am going to hang these! The most recent convention was for both Twilight and Vampire Diaries that my sister put together in Tennessee. We had a great time and though we had a bump in the road with an actor that was supposed to come, everyone had a great time! At the close of the convention Sunday morning, my poor sister was crying as people left since the weight of stress and worry over having everyone enjoy their weekend was finally off her shoulders. My sister isn't one to be teary eyed or even cry so it was pretty surprising for my mom and I who were there helping her pull everything off. To be quite honest, I am not a fan of Twilight and I actually got my sister into Vampire Diaries as I started to fade out on the tv show, but the ladies who came this weekend were all wonderful! It was truly an honor to meet everyone and to share such a great time with them all.
As for art, I am working on some things. I had a sketchbook with me at the cons and crazy enough, a few folks like my sketches so much that I plan on mailing them a drawing of their favorite characters. I have my sister and a friend requesting Game of Thrones (Rob Stark and Jon Snow) and another of Edward and Bella in one of my mom's favorite scenes from the movie. Also, I have a comic drawing I am going to challenge myself with by inking it and I have a Supernatural drawing to finish and post. On top of all this, I have some art trades and such I am currently finishing to post soon as well. So much art, and yet, nothing finished enough to post. :/ It is coming, I am just slow and with all the interruptions I get during the evening when I sketch, I tend to bounce around from drawing to drawing once I lose momentum on one. I did manage to scan in a line sketch of Rob Stark if anyone is interested in my unfinished art: sta.sh/01eo7m0znpxj
and the sketch of Edward and Bella are here: sta.sh/0yax6p7q22k
One last note before you head back off into cyberspace; I just met a new deviant
who is a big fan of Mass Effect, Kaidan and other geektastic stuff I am into. Go check out her gallery and Mass Effect fanfic if you are looking for something new to read and someone new to follow!
