ANIME NORTH 2017 - Update

Non-art post just to let everyone know:

a) Anime North is done. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME BY MY TABLE AND TOOK CARDS AND ARE NOW SEEING MY STUFF ON THE INTERNETS. WELCOME NEW PEOPLE!

b) @shiny-and-chr0me Again I am so sorry I didn’t have a copy of the newer Utena print but I am so glad you looked it up to see it online! Utena (the manga, the tv show, the movie) is a gem. We need more series like it.

c) I actually cosplayed for the first time and it was amazing. It was just a new way to experience the con. I’m glad I got over my fear of looking dumb and old. (I went as Rey on Saturday and Link on Sunday). Also, this little girl dressed like Link told me she liked my Rey costume. I nearly fucking died.

d) Thanks to cosplay I met so many nice people. I found like 5 other Reys, one Matt the raydar technician, one General Leia, one Link with a mop, and also one Corvo (from Dishonored). He didn’t talk but was kind enough to let me photograph him (or her?). I saw him twice and each time he was running around, ducked low, with dagger out, darting around people just like in the game lol.

e) Special thanks to @phaena and @illintentcomics, my convention senpais, who gave me cookies, looked after my stuff while I went wandering or to the bathroom, helped me set up and tear down, take stuff to and from my car, let me yak at them, and generally looked after my well-being. Also: they gave me cookies and snacks. And @phaena also encouraged me to go to the Star Wars photoshoot on Saturday and I’m glad I didn’t puss out on that because it was fun!

f) I got to see my con daughter @salemnevada once again! We actually met ten years ago at Anime North by chance after being seated next to each other in the artist alley. We almost immediately bonded over our obsession with Link, and our friendship endures to this day.

g) Anime North shared a convention complex with the Conservative Party of Canada this weekend. The party held their final leadership vote Saturday night, and I was able to find out who won from some randos in the parking lot before I got the news anywhere else lol. Also: stuff like this.

h) YES I DO HAVE LEFTOVER COPIES OF INTO THE WILD. Yes, I will sell off those copies online. No, I don’t have a system to do that yet. Give me some time to figure it out. Right now I can barely spell or do math (so tired lol) I also have extra prints of stuff but that will be a separate project to sell them.

i) I’ll be able to update my Star Wars comic again soon. Yay!

j) Look at this dumb sparkly t-shirt I bought of Justin Trudeau riding on a horse. This is why I shouldn’t be allowed near money.

Those are the highlights I can recall right now. Many experiences were had, many sights were seen, a memorable year all-around.

Town Tileset Mockup!

Look, I’m a wilderness guy. Put me in an old forest of ancient trees covered in moss, and I’m about as happy as it gets. My favorite moments even in games are spent wandering around in the spaces between civilization. So when I say that this mockup is the one I’m most excited about so far, it means something!

It’s also the one that has possibly taken me the longest, and has been a huge struggle. (Fountains are freaking impossible!) But I couldn’t be more happy with this–it’s starting to feel like a game.

A few towns are planned for The Waking Cloak, each with a different aesthetic, but this is a piece of the main one (as of yet unnamed). Between talking to townsfolk, shopping, getting amulets appraised, being summoned by the mayor/king, and exploring nooks and crannies, you’ll probably spend a fair bit of time here!

Finally, here’s a gif of me flailing around and trying a bunch of different stuff as I developed the look and feel. I spent a horrifying amount of time working on that wall.

See Harry Styles Play Mick Jagger, Perform New Songs on 'SNL'
Harry Styles took over 'Saturday Night Live' as the One Direction singer popped up in multiple sketches while also serving as musical guest.

Harry Styles took over Saturday Night Live as the One Direction singer popped up in multiple sketches while also serving as musical guest.

 In one sketch, “Celebrity Family Feud: Time Travel Edition,” Styles was called upon to play a young Mick Jagger, with Styles hilariously embellishing the Rolling Stones singer’s trademark mannerisms.

When Kenan Thompson’s Steve Harvey complimented Jagger’s solo output, the singer responded, “Solo? Why would anyone in a successful band go solo? That is insane,” a nod to the (temporary?) dissolution of Styles’ One Direction.

The “Celebrity Family Feud” bit was one of three sketches that the singer and burgeoning actor appeared in as Styles planted the seeds for a potential  SNL hosting/musical guest double duty spot in the not-to-distant future.

Styles also made a cameo during Jimmy Fallon’s David Bowie-inspired opening monologue, then reappeared again during the a musical sketch about Civil War soldiers around a campfire: link

On top of all the sketch appearances, Styles also debuted a new acoustic number titled “Ever Since New York,” a track off his upcoming self-titled solo LP : link

Styles also delivered an impassioned rendition of “Sign of the Times,” the first single off Harry Styles, due out May 12th: link

AN: Thank you all for being so patient—you have NO idea how much that means to me. Though I do feel as though I owe you an explanation of sorts. I recently found out that I have a mild(er) form of SAD (seasonal affective disorder), which basically means I experience mild bouts of depression during the winter. The thing is, I didn’t know what this was or why I was having such difficulty focusing on assignments and things that I even actually wanted to do. Having difficulty focusing is also part of my ADHD, so I kind of just attributed it to that and my general tendency to procrastinate (procrastinators unite!). My mother and quite a few other women in my family have seasonal affective disorder, which I always thought I escaped (I LOVE rain and snow and fog and cold weather!). But apparently you can adore winter and still have SAD (hahaha at the acronym).

ANOTHER thing that’s been going on is that I am a music major—and if you know anything about music conservatories, you know that March is concert/festival/recital season. I had a concert Sunday, I have another one on Friday, and I have my junior recital on Saturday (the LiveStream link will be shared here in case you are all interested!). So between all of that, I’ve found it difficult to update. I will update every week—but until the third week of April, I can’t promise that it will be on Wednesday. Thank you ALL for being so patient! You have no idea how much I appreciate it <3

The only thing Feyre was aware of when she rose back to consciousness was how dark it was. How she opened her eyes and blinked and blinked, but her vision never seemed to clear. For a moment, she panicked. She was blind. They’d kicked her in the back of the head and it had damaged her beyond repair and she would never be able to see or paint again. But when she’d brought her hand closer to her face, when her eyes had adjusted, she’d calmed down at the realization that she was somewhere very dark. In a room that had a very thin line of watery gray light seeping under the doorway.

She groaned as she rolled over onto her side to get a closer look at the door, every bone and muscle in her body aching from the innumerable bruises and tears she’d received. Her head was pounding, injuries throbbing.

“Welcome back to the real world, Sleeping Beauty.”

Feyre yelped as she reflexively jerked away from the familiar, grinding voice. She hissed as her injuries made contact with another part of the frigid cement floor. “…Lucien?”
