What'd I miss? :D (No, seriously, I won't be able to comb back through everything; point me to the juicy stuff!)

Just got back from a ginormous industry convention (Illuxcon) for fantasy/scifi artists, and it was aMAZing. Super-inspiring. You guys? Always always be proud of your inclusion in the fandoms of genre creations. We rock. And we need to keep supporting each other and encouraging each other to create not just stuff for existing properties, but original worlds too. Writers, singers, and yes, artists. All of us. What a fucking boring place this world would be without it.

Welcome back!! Sounds like you ended up feeling good about the con, so yay, you!

You missed a LOT, bb. There's an SPN meme going around, the Eight Days of Wincest challenge is still going on and the brotherly love is everywhere! ♥ Also, just to be contrary, I drew Abaddon.</i>

ABADDON. Just ... yes.

I did end up feeling good about it! But not in the ways I thought I would. I got incredible advice from unexpected places, lacklustre responses from folks I imagined would've loved my stuff, and it really encouraged me to be open to ALL kinds of inspiration. But most especially, it's made me wanna really kick it up a notch and take myself seriously. We'll see how that goes!

Feels great to be back, though! \0/! MISSED YOU BUNCHES. :D

Yeah, Abaddon. After I'd finished her, I started seeing some of the things that my beta *cough* would've called me on. Too bad I didn't notice until after the color and all, but hey, baby steps. My eyes are perhaps learning to see. :)

really kick it up a notch and take myself seriously

You don't take yourself seriously? With THAT kind of talent dripping off your fingertips? You'll be hard-put to find anyone around here who doesn't take you waaaaay seriously.

Glad to have ya back -- it's been quiet around here.

. . . TOO quiet. ;D

It makes me so happy to hear you say this! I'm so glad to know creative people who are going for it. There's a place for us, here and out there! :)

How'd it go with the cover illustrations question? Any opportunities there for you? Sounds like it was a great time!

Yay, you're back! How could you not take yourself seriously when it's your job, missis? Do you think this lack of self confidence is a girl thing? mmm *muses*

Fab that you've come back so full of energy though!

You've missed a ton of course, the wincest celebration and the 30 days of SPN is sparking a lot of warm feels running through each season, summergen is still going and so's colour-me... I've been here all the time and I've still fallen by the wayside.
