Hey guys! Lnog time no talk!
Sorry I've been so scarce lately. SO MUCH has been going on! It's that time of year.
Been missing my newgrounds buddies though! What's new with all of you?!
BACK TO SCHOOL:
One more year left until I'm a full-fledged secondary school art teacher! Woo! I ended up getting into all of the classes I needed last minute (literally the day before school started) so now I'm taking drawing, abstract wood sculpture, and a teaching course. They're all pretty neat so far. Except for the abstract sculpture one. I've literally just spent that course time hot-glueing scrap pieces of wood together and calling it art. :I ... ANYWAY! Fun times to be had. Lots of new traditional art to show ya!
If there's anybody still waiting for me to post those 13 emergency commissions from back in June, sorry to keep you all waiting! I'm mostly finished now and I can send you a copy of yours whenever you like. There's one or two more that I want to fix up a bit before I post them all, but for the most part, I'll be posting them up whenever my next full day off rolls around. Again, sorry it's been so delayed! I'm making sure to throw in extra variations and transparencies for everybody to make up for their patience. c:
OPENED MY SOCIETY6 STORE:
There's a bunch of cool stuff available on my Society6 page now! All the t-shirts come in different sizes and colours, and there's a ton of variations so you can customize your order. Have a peek! The profits go straight to my tuition and/or art supplies for school. I'm just listed as Sabtastic: http://society6.com/sabtastic
UPCOMING COMIC CONS:
I wasn't really expecting to go back to school, so I still have a bunch of expos to sell artwork at. It's tough to juggle all of this while going to school and working a day job, but it helps a hell of a lot to pay for tuition!
By the way, if you ever meet me at one of these, mention that you're on Newgrounds and I'll probably give you some free Newgrounds stuff! ...Maybe even a free print if I'm feeling extra nice! ;)
Saskatoon Expo: Sept 21-22, Saskatchewan <-- THIS WEEKEND! :D
Edmonton Expo: Sept 26-28th, Alberta
Lethbridge Expo: Nov 22-23rd, Alberta.
WAY IN THE FUTURE PLANS:
Magfest: Jan 2015, Maryland USA: I really want to make it out to Maryland this winter for Magfest 2015. It was SO MUCH FUN last year, I have to go back. Gonna do whatever I can to make it work. I don't plan on selling artwork there since it's a 24 hour vendor hall and I'd rather be socializing with friends, but I'll definitely still try to be there so if you're going too maybe we'll cross paths!
Pico Day 2015: April/May: Glenside PA: I usually make a spring trip out to Philly to visit with my Newgrounds/Sleepycabin buddies around this time of year, so expect that! I don't know for sure if I'll be able to get to Pico Day because I've got a huge comic con to do that weekend, but I'll visit near that weekend for sure!!
Emerald City Comic Con: March 27-29 2015: Washington: I haven't signed up for this expo yet, but it's HUGE and it's on my bucket list. If I manage to get into this, I'll get to hang out with my art bro Nikkinacks and attend the artist alley of my first ever USA comic con!! Wee!
Fan Expo: Aug 22-23 2015: Toronto, ON: This is one of Canada's biggest comic cons and I HAVE TO GO HERE at some point, just to say I've done it. I've heard it's VERY difficult to get into, but I really want to branch out into the East Coast Canadian comic cons, so this will be a good way to get my feet wet, I think. :o
