It was Summery AND Shady at Grant Park!

Well I’m back from my weekend at Summer Shade and I’m in one piece. YAY! It wasn’t a bad show despite the sky falling. It rained almost the entire time Sunday! So of course the turn out wasn’t as big as expected but surprisingly there were a few brave souls that battled the rain to look at some art. Thank you folks for being as crazy and as wet as I was this weekend :)
Saturday was LOVELY however. Nice and cool, sunny but not the “Good God my skin is burning” kind of sunny…the nice kind.
We had a pretty good conglomeration of peoples. Both buyers and potential buyers…they are gonna buy they just don’t know it yet…but the Myxies will call to them…Oh yes my darlings just you wait…..ANYway, I was nervous about two big shows back to back but this weekend went well so I’m gung ho (whatever that means) and ready for Dragon Con…maybe.
Well thanks everyone that stopped by to see me and I’ll see you next weekend!

Tootles!

Working Like a Dawg

I’m actually almost done with everything I had to do for Dragon Con. I’m finishing up the little dragons, I only have about 7 more to go…and they don’t take long…and after that I won’t be doing anymore art until Dragon Con is over.
I have frames for everything now and I’m working on hanging them. My sister has generously volunteered to make a special frame for one of my larger paintings. The painting is my rendition of Alice in Wonderland so the frame is going to be made out of playing cards…Cool huh? I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
Other then the framing I will be matting some of my prints to sell and updating my portfolio. I have only two weeks before the Con so I’m hustling to make sure everything is ready not to mention getting ready for a two day show the weekend before Dragon Con…what was I thinking scheduling them so close…Oh well. The Show is Summer Shade festival in Grant park. I will be selling Myxies and prints so you should all stop by to see me :)

Exclusive You Say...Sounds Important

Hello Friends!
I have alot of ideas for new art that I want to get done but right now I have absolutly no time to go finding new projects to add to my list. I'm still going crazy trying to get ready for Dragon Con though my list is starting to get smaller and smaller...but there is one extra thing I desided to do for the Con...but it's just something small that I thought would be neat. I found these fun little canvases...yeah they are like trading cards but you paint them yourself. Cool huh! So I got 10 of the little buggahs and I'm making some special "con exclusive" drawings. They are coming along nicly and todays was exspecialy fun to draw that is why I wanted to share it with you. I thought it was cute.
Oh and don't worry about me not having enough time to finish my new pictures...I'm doing them while I am bored at work...so I have plenty of time :P

The Headache of the Week

Man, Dragon Con snuck up on me…I was thinking I had plenty of time and then BOOM it hits me that it is only a month away. I still have so much I need to get done before the show. I’m sure I’ll have time I just HATE running crazy the last minute. I was hoping to have everything done at least a month before. Alas it never goes as smoothly as I plan.
The headache of this week is trying to get frames for the art I am hanging in the Gallery. I have gone to numerous stores looking for the right frames for each piece…the problem is some of my art is not a traditional size so frames are almost impossible to find. You have to have them custom made and that can take awhile and as I said I’M RUNNING OUT OF TIME! I know, I know, I should’ve started earlier well…one like I said I thought I had more time and two I come from a long line of procrastinators…it’s in my blood, not my fault. So the race is on, I’m scrambling to get this stuff done while finishing my art and working full time. Good Lord I need a vacation. But underneath all the stress I’m super excited about the Con this year. I have bunches of new art for the Gallery and PrintShop. Also have an auction table this year for a few special sculptures. And since I did it last year I will know a little more of what to expect so it’s not so stressful. But it’s still crunch time so I will get back to haphazardly preparing for Dragon Con.
Keep checking my blog for updates of my work and my stress level :P
