Who's heading to MAGfest this year?! :D



It's been years since I last attended in the Sleepycabin days, but I'm looking forward to the trip!

It's January 2-5 (Thursday to Sunday) and I think it's a bit expensive at about 85$ for all four days, but Sunday's badge is only 25$.


I'll be heading out with the talented Castcuraga -- feel free to say hi in the comments to tell us if you're going or not, too!


P.S: This was my 100th news post on Newgrounds, I guess, so WUHOO! *confetti*

Hi everybody!


Convention season is picking back up so I'll be using this news post as a reference for conventions I'll be attending. If you've ever wanted to support my work, meet me, or talk shop in person, I'm planning on travelling to all of these Canadian cities (and Portland) in 2019!


Also since some of these shows have yet to be locked down, I'll leave a little * asterisk if I haven't officially gotten in.

Check it out!


🐦 Edmonton - Animethon (Aug 9-11)

🐦 Montreal - Otakuthon (Aug 3-5)

🐦 Edmonton - Animethon (9-11)

🐦 Toronto Fan Expo - (Aug 29-Sep 3)

🦅 Portland - Rose City Comic Con (Sept 7-9)

🐦 Edmonton Expo (Sept 21-23)

🐦 Calgary - Foothills Comic Con (Oct 5)

🐦 Halifax - Halcon (Oct 25-27)

🐦 Calgary - Calgary Holiday Market (November 30)

🐦Edmonton - The Gamers Lodge Community Holiday Market (Saturday December 7th)

🐦 Edmonton- The Witchery (Dec 21-22)


P.S. Pico Day falls on a convention weekend for me this year, so I sadly won't be able to visit my pals in Philly for the big day -- I'll be in Ottawa for Comic Con instead! Hope everybody still has a fantastic time regardless. Wish I could be in two places at once. </3


P.P.S. Lawd have mercy on me for somehow booking 5 consecutive con weekends in a row. Please check on in me during my 6 week convention gauntlet lol -- the most I've ever done in a row was 4, and my body is not ready. haha


P.P.P.S. If you WON'T be visiting any of these cities or events but you STILL want to support my work somehow, my Etsy Shop is likely the best / most worthwhile purchase you could make in terms of getting the most out of your money. I personally package and ship those orders myself, so I usually toss in a couple extra goodies when I get orders. Obviously I have to close down the store while I'm away at conventions, so if you'd rather just donate some COLD HARD CASH on Ko-fi, that's an option too if you don't want anything in return.


Thanks for checking out my tour dates!

Cheers!

*shhhh*

It's okay. You're safe now.

Nobody's gonna flag your art here.

If you're new to Newgrounds and you'd like to post your art here, I can help out by 'scouting' your work. The art portal will ONLY make your art visible to the general public if you post a minimum of 4 art pieces. Once you do this, hit me up and let me know you need to be scouted! I'd be happy to expedite the process and get your work seen a bit quicker. I'm on here pretty much every day.

We have a solid art community, and an even stronger animation one. Everybody's pretty open and supportive here. 

Stay a while! Make some friends!

Hi Newgrounds! It's been a while, but this year has been full of drastic changes for me--in a good way!

If you're not familiar with my work, I'm a Canadian artist in Edmonton, Alberta who draws three things; 

Monster girls, cute fat birds, and pinups! ...Sometimes all at once in the same drawing!


For the past couple years, I've been building my brand, expanding my artistic skills, finishing a teaching degree, and scraping by as an artist. I did some teaching work related to my degree, but I always had way more fun creating art for myself. This year, I took the plunge and registered for 25 different artist alleys and conventions all over North America, and I'm really happy to report that those shows were all a huge success! I'm finally seeing enough of a positive return to support myself and perpetuate what I love to do: creating original art. I even stopped taking commission work so I'd have more time to get my own ideas out there! I've even got my own art office and registerd business license!

Here are a couple of the things I've made for the first time this year... 

Hard Enamel Crow Pins (new ones coming soon, too!) -- 

2916822_154007597052_pins.png

Gold Ink Linen Cover Stock Prints based on my original inktober work-- (they're made with a specialty ink, too!) 

2916822_154007610852_download.png 2916822_154007628312_witch.png

Handmade Vinyl Decals-- (my sister taught me how to plot vinyl and mask layered designs, which was cool)

Birdblob Merchandise (based on a little drawing game I made up to play with my art students)...

ANYWAY,

I  wanted to announce (to any fellow Newgrounds users) that I'm going to be heading out to MAGFEST 2019 this January with my artist friends Nackem, Purefey (my sister), and Castcuraga! I think one of us is confirmed for an artist alley table so far, so not all of us will be vending, but if you see us, feel free to say hello! Since Pico Day isn't a thing anymore, I'm hoping that a few of the OG Newgrounds folks will make the trip out-- but who knows! It's nice to meet new faces, too!

If you've never been to MAGfest before, it's the closest thing I can think of to 'nerd burning man', if you're really into Music and/or Gaming. It's expensive, and it's pretty tough to get a room for the convention, but it's definitely a one-of-a-kind experience.

SEE YOU THERE, MAYBE! :D

2916822_151841605073_ConventionMap.pngHere's which conventions I'll be attending this year if you're interested in checking out my art or meeting me! 

I'll add to the list as I get confirmed for shows, but here's the projected list for 2018 so far!

Feel free to drop a line here or on social media letting me know if you'll be attending the show, too! It's always nice to put a face to a name ahead of time. If you know of any shows you think my art might be a good fit for, feel free to suggest it here, too! I'm always looking for new cities/towns/events to check out, and I try to add a few new artist alleys to the roster every year.

My Newgrounds tank pin came in the mail!

Lots of great memories and people connected to this lil' tank.

Just wanted to show it off here, in case you're still undecided.
