I'd love to jump into showing/selling my work at conventions soon. The crisis with my back has been dodged for now :/. Unfortunately I've never shown at a convention before! I've been in museum shows and I sell my work at local beach shops, but an Artist's Alley is... Overwhelming to say the least.

ANY advice I can get is greatly appreciated!! My main concerns are about how many prints to get, overlooked but important details, and possibly ideas on booth constructs.  I have a general idea of how I want to merchandise, but would love input!!

i hope I can get my ducks in a row in time for Pensacon in Feb! 

Thank you to everyone who expressed sentiments for me and my back! I suffered 2 bulging discs last year and had a surgery last Halloween to relieve nerve pain. Unfortunately, that was only half the problem because now it's the vertebrae grinding and disintegrating on me. :/. 23 years of hardcore fast pitch softball will wear your body out!!!   My neurosurgeons suggested a lumbar fusion surgery (metal screws and rods with a bone graft) but we all decided I'd try everything I could until surgery was the last option. So I'm getting a cortisone epidural in 2 weeks :) here's hoping!!! 

I hope that I can return to drawing soon! It's been hard to sit in one spot for very long, and also to concentrate through the pain, that I honestly haven't had much desire to draw :( 

Thank you everyone for your continued support!! 

If if you get the chance... Share my artwork whenever and wherever you can? Shameless plugging is, well, shameless :) 

Talk to y'all soon!!!

I am a fan artist of most subcultures, but I mainly draw from books and anime. This Deviant account is for my fanart and a lil' bit of my photography.

Hi! I love your work, I'm about to buy a graphic tablet and I wonder which is the best option. Can you tell me what model you are using?
Thanks a lot!

Hi! I actually don't use a tablet, I've never even picked one up! All my stuff I draw traditionally in pencil and either color it with watercolors or Copic markers and then I take a hi-res pic and load it into my computer for digital tinkering. I use a VERY old program, called Corel Photopaint 9. It's 15 years old and isn't even compatible with Windows 8, but it works great for me and what I need!!
