Hello there to all my watchers new and old!
It seems as though I have been standing still here, when actually my life is been going full throttle. I hope everyone is doing well and isn't quite so busy! I wanted to have a journal to update everyone on what is going on and to also do a feature for anyone commenting who is interested.
I am currently working on two conventions that are both set to go on next year. One is happening in Gatlinburg Tennessee at the end of January, I suspect it will be about 1000 due to the focus of it. After announcing it last week online with the Facebook group it is for, the interest and ticket sales have been keeping me busy-but that is fantastic since it means it is already a success. I have a second con, much larger (our hopes are for 2500 attendees) that I am rolling out in my hometown (close proximity is an AWESOME thing!) which is larger in scope dealing with all nerdom and geek stuffs you see at other cons. I am already getting some wonderfully talented folks on board so it is truly exciting! It will be taking place July 2015 so things are going to keep growing more hectic, but I do enjoy event planning so I am very excited about the talent being considered and the panelists coming on board! I don't plan on spamming you guys with things regarding the con, but I will update to let you know when our website is finished so you can keep up with who will be participating and see if you are interested in attending or sign up as a volunteer if you are in the area and are interested in that sort of thing.
As to the features here we go!Rules:1 - For each of the first 15 people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and 3 deviations I like most from their gallery on the list.2 - If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) on the first place.
This talented artist is the whole reason why I bought Copic markers and went through pain to get better with them. Her marker pieces just make me continue to strive to do better and more with my own art. She is such a wonderful inspiration and an awesome person to know. I am completely fortunate to call her a friend and to have her support here on deviant!
Ahhh, I have to cut off at three but I could completely keep going and post her whole gallery here!
This gal is a Jack of all trades! From jewelry making, clothes designing and art, she pretty much does it all! A fellow Doctor Who aficionado, Kaidan Alenko appreciator, and fellow Cullenite, she is pretty much into all the same fictional men I enjoy as well!
She is also available for commissions!
ReelLifeJaneway2's Commission JournalHello everyone! Guess what? I'm offering up art commissions here on deviantArt and over on Tumblr! If you would like to support me (ReelLifeJaneway2) and my business, Auburn Rogue, please join the fun! I would love to hear from you!
For a limited time, to celebrate the launch of my Auburn Rogue ETSY store and my Society6 site, commission any piece of art valued at over $50 and receive a free art trade card of the character of your choice! Like these:
It is honestly thanks to her that I persevered with art. I had nearly given up and thrown in the towel, but then miracle of miracles, this lovely lady agreed to do an art trade with me. I am forever grateful to her for that because it really helped me push harder and not quit so easily. Her guidance and friendship have been two of the reasons why I have excelled as quickly as I have with art and I will never be able to repay her for that!
and if for some reason you aren't familiar with her gorgeous hand drawn comics, allow me to direct you here:
