May was pretty crazy. I'm glad it's almost over. Work was crazy since the schools are finishing up their budgets. Home was crazy because art and cons and contracts. This was a rough month. Thankfully, after this last con this weekend, it's vacation time! I'm going to take some time to hang with friends and visit New York. Woot woot. I just finished packing my suitcase - starting tomorrow i'm going to be in the states for a week.

Despite the serious busy crazies, I took a day mostly off for my birthday. I was indulged by my boyfriend and got to see Epic. For anyone interested, Epic was pretty decent, probably Blue Sky's best up to date. Rich world. Kinda felt like a mix between Narnia and Ferngully. The characters are really fun, the forest world is gorgeous and this movie wins the prize for "best use of product placement in plot" (it's an iphone - keep your eyes peeled for it). The villains could have used more work. There's this weird trend lately in animated features where the villains are kinda weak-ish (they lack motivations and backstories). The best one I saw lately was the Wreck-it-Ralph one, who was pretty scary.

In other news, I drew a lot of fanart lately, to produce for cons. I did a few non-fanart things, mostly educative stuff. I really love doing prints or posters with lists, or diagrams, or maps. Sorta like "all the types of time travel" or "Types of swords." This time, I made one about Lolitas, as in the Japanese fashion trend.



Full poster under cut. )

It's a fashion trend I adore, because it's basically like small pockets of history, walking around, inspired by Rococo and Victorian fashion and design. I wanted to draw two posters, one showing the different types of Lolitas, and the other showing the proper layering required to achieve the Lolita look. So far, i've only done the "type" one, but it's a good start!

Technically, only 4 "types" are actual types, the others are more like themes. The main 4 types are classic, punk, gothic and sweet.

I posted this on tumblr and it got like 8000 notes, so this bodes well for con sales...

Welp, off I go! Time to zip up my bags and prepare for adventure. 

See you all later!

A drawing of Holly, for my buddy Sanne. Holly looks like her hair is made of melted sunlight. So I wanted to use partial coloring like I do on Namesake to really push the attention to the awesome that is Holly’s locks.

Happy birthday, Sanne. Let me love you.

Well, i'm totally going to go see the 3D release of Beauty and the Beast, I think. I really want to see the Tangled short and I just love BatB... So... Yeah. Disney sure knows how to get my money. Those sneaky guys.

In other news, Namesake will be officially at the Toronto Comic Art festival in 2012. Meaning, now me and Meg have about 2 months to get the first book (collecting chapters 1-5) done. I'm working on creating the covers and possibly finding some bonus material. Any ideas?

I'm working on pin-ups of all the characters (male and female, the only exempt ones are going to be the characters who are minors because that's just creepy) as a fundraiser motivator. I like these. I like doing classy and sexy pin-ups. Kinda like bruce Timm. He is the pin-up master.

Classy yet sexy under cut (Not safe for work) )

Oh, I just finished watching the "Goofy Movie" while I was doing my pages today. MAN. It was so 90's. I felt like I was back in high school. 

And it was awesome.
