As I said before, it was Emerald City Comicon this weekend, and rather than get my usual Nightwing stuff I branched out and got awesome Hobbit stuff, specifically Hot Dwarves. Dwarfs. Dwarbs.
Anyway, Marcus To is one of my favorite artists, and he let me sign up for this piece ages ago. Look how freaking fantastic it is! My scanner’s not big enough to do the whole thing (it is 11"x17"), so I had to shoot it with my digital camera - hence the dark corner upper right. I have no idea wtf. Rest assured, it’s not on the paper.
Erika Moen, Amy Falcone, Dylan Meconis, Steve Lieber, and I talked about the ins and outs of freelancing at Emerald City Comicon this past weekend. Here’s a recording for those of you who couldn’t make it!
Squish the bb. I had a really good time scaring the crap out of children all day, I want to cosplay Disney villains always! If you find pics of my costumes anywhere on the web please tag me! We were so busy I took almost none myself. #eccc #emeraldcitycomiccon #eccc2014 #cosplay #maleficent #disney #muah #eotd #motd
Known for her bold style–both on the canvas and out in the wilds of Canada–Jakface is always out there creating something new and exciting. Recently, she was a contributor to the FUJOSPORTSanthology by the Canadian team Love Love Hill, who wanted to celebrate female-gaze sports anime! And of course, let’s not forget her story in the TamaGotCheese anthology (for all of us who treasured our digital pets, even at their most pixel-y!) She was also a contributor to The Devastator: Otaku, a comedy book by Devastator Press. Oh, and how could we forget? Jakface’s art also featured in MEGA FAUNA, an all-ages anthology about pets, monsters, and beasts by Cloudscape Comics!
Furthermore, she was a two-time contributor (2014 & 2015) to the Monsters and Dames charity artbook, which donates 100% of its proceeds to the Seattle Children’s Hospital. (They’ve donated over $75,000 since 2009!) Not content to rest, she also did the poster for the upcoming event Guardians of the Sexy: A Geeky Celebration in Burlesqueat Emerald City Comic-Con this year! And let’s not forget that Jakface was the creator of the Men of Dragon Age fan-calendar, much beloved by Bioware fans everywhere (including showing up in the background in photos of the Bioware offices!) … And the GAMEboys calendar…. AND the Silver Fox calendar! Oh, and here I go, almost forgetting the cherry on top: her webcomic, WOOHOO!
(That’s what it’s called, WooHoo. But also, woo-hoo!)
If you’d like to support Jakface’s tireless work, consider checking out her print store or contributing to her Patreon!
A big round of applause for Jakface! Thanks for joining the team!
So, to explain my radio silence on here as of late, I was madly prepping for Emerald City Comic Con (read as sewing a ten suit for my fiance, and failing miserably before giving up)!!!! I got to hang out with some incredible people for this epic weekend. I’m sad I didn’t take more pictures than I did, and it’s pretty obvious learning how to use the camera on my phone was a process, cuz dang some of these pics are blurry. But I did manage to catch some GREAT moments of some AWESOME people.
SO MANY DOCTOR WHO SHENANIGANS happened all weekend that I can’t even begin to explain/retell all the silliness. xD Oh lawdy. But I was dressed as my Fear Her Rose on Friday (no pictures yet, makes me a sad Rose) and my Empty Child Rose on Saturday and Sunday.
We ran around all over Seattle both days (my feet are killing me) Gingerten’s ego was stroked quite nicely by random strangers in Seattle going “Oh! The Doctor!” or “Look it’s David Tennant!” xD Him and Pinkpolicebox ended up in more adorable poses than I could capture with a camera! And I managed to snag us a Donna for Sunday and Jack found an Ianto that hung with us too! IT WAS ALL SO PERFECT! I LOVE MY FRIENDS TO BITS!
