I have risen from the dead on Halowe'en to write this journal. I meant to write one last week to talk about the fact that I was going to have a table at Unplugged Expo in Toronto last weekend but I ran out of time and since I've come back I've been horribly sick. It was an amazing weekend - one of the most complete gatherings of the north american cast of Sailor Moon was there and I got to go to the Saturday panel and then go to the signing and speak with each of them (the only one missing was Sailor Mercury - Karen Bernstein) but Sailor Moon (Terri Hawkes), Sailor Venus, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, even Artemis and Luna and Darien, Sammy (Serena's little brother) and of course Melvin were there - the panel was hilarious and getting to talk to them each afterwards was an amazing experience (even if it was a two hour wait in line...) I got them to sign a VHS copy of the final two episodes of season one that I've had since I was 13 years old as well as my very last 11x17 poster of this image:
Which is a special one for me.
Also over the weekend I debuted a new piece of Sailor Moon fanart - I thought it fit the circumstances well - you can see it here:
It went over very well and I got lots of compliments - as always I'd love to hear from you guys what you think!
On that note that wraps up my con-season for the year so once I'm a bit more lucid and less full of goo (it's taken me two days to write this journal) I'll finish up the couple of commissions I have and then I'll be clearing out a lot of my old prints and putting them up for sale in my storenvy store (super cheap!) along with my buttons, keychains, stickers and magnets. I'll make another announcement when that is finished! I also plan on getting back to work on my webcomic Briar Rose - I'm hoping to have the first issue done for next years con season! Go me!
I hope all of you are well out there in DA land - I apologize again for my neglect - I'll remind you all that if you do have tumblr I am FAR more active over there so feel free to follow me!
Wish me a quick recovery oh and HAPPY HALOWEEN ALL!
