HUZZAH!!

Just a reminder to all who may be attending, I am a Guest at Portcon 2007 in Portland, Maine June 22-24. I shall be there with fellow TOKYOPOP creators and friends, Svetlana Chmakova and Dee Dupuy (her MOST EXCELLENT tonist XD ) as well as a slew of other great creators, writers and industy peeps!

I will also be doing a panel or two (most likely just one >.>; ) AND an Artists Alley table where I will again be selling some MOST EXCELLENT My Cat Loki relate merchandise: Buttons, Keychains, Bookmarks and Prints......and possibly that mini sketchbook I DIDN'T have time to put together for Anime Boston! ^,^V I'll also have some other fanart related merch as well....so yea...if you're going, drop by and say hello...I DON'T bite...MUCH! XD and purchase some of those limited-con merch, as I will NOT be selling them anywhere else but at the cons! So yea, get them while you can, or you'll have to wait another year to get them! ^_^;

In other news....

I would LOVE to say that I've been busy on MCL 3 for the past month plus...but NOPE!^^; I won't be started MCL 3 till June and then from there I'll work my ass off to get it done ASAP to get it in stores MUCH sooner than a years time from the MCL 2 release>.<...

...Instead...I've been working oooooooooon......a STAR TREK STORY!!O_O; Yup! You read correctly!>.>; I've no idea if I'm even suppose to be talkng about this yet or not...but since the book is coming out in September, the more advertising and promoting I do for it the better^^;; SO!! Here's the deal! I'm illustrating a short chapter long story with Christine Boylan as the writer, as well as doing the OFFICIAL cover for it! XDehe...so yea....this is Star Trek: the manga Volume 2: Kakan ni Shinkou from TOKYOPOP, not your regular ole novel...but...it's been interesting so far...I'm only about half way doen with it...still a bit of work to get done on it...so yea....QUITE different from working on my own work, so many rules and models to follow >,<...but oh well! It'll be great when it's done and printed^_^V




okay....and speaking of ST work...I need to get back to it >.>;;....deadline is for the end of the month....still a good deal of work to do on it ^^;

Oh man XD I'm so nervous already XD...and so so SO not ready XD *shot*

Yea...I've been lucky when getting mine^^; Bought an 85 custom colour set from Uneide at the beginning of the year...so I've those on TOP of the 48 plus ink refills that I have now XD...tis nice that I can write it all off as business expenses! XDehe

SWEET!! XD we should SO do a button exchange!^,^~<3 and buttons are SERIOUSLY EASY money making gems! XD of everything I had at my table at AB, buttons sold the MOST!! XD so yea, gonna stock up on them with new images to add to what I have left over from AB ^_^V

I'll be going to Otakon too!!! Hope to see you again! I also hope to pitch my story to Tokyopop if they are there this year. If not maybe another convention and another time. Yah! ^^

DreamworldStudio's avatar
SWEET!!XD

If all goes well and Otakon FINALLY posts their AA registration shit...then :iconnyanko-chan: and I shall be shariing a table there as well!^____^V you can come and hang with us if you'd like! XD

Yea, I REALLY hope TP is there PERIOD!!O_O; Ota is the weekend before SDCC...so there's a BIG chance that they may not go;__; which would make me a very sad cookie!;__; cause I'd LOVE to promote MCL more;__;...but oh well^^; would mean less promoting at their booth...but more at the AA table^,^V Which is where I'd RATHER be! XDeheh...cause then I get to sit and work on ARTSIES with my friends and such XDehehe

If TP is not going to be at Ota, I'll definitely be posting about that here on DA, so that should give you an idea what to prepare for^_^V...course, you could bring it anyways and :iconnyanko-chan: and I, OH! and another fellow RSoM winner that I'll be sharing a room with, can help and look over for you^_^V
lilbit075's avatar
Awesome! I would love to hang out with you guys! :D I hope that sometime in the next year I could get a booth at the artist alley and do some selling. I'd never thought about it up until a few years ago when people started to let me know "Hey Ren your not as bad as you think you are. You did graduate from college with a BFA in Art." And I'm like oh yeah. Lol. I guess though an artist is their own worst critic as they say. Very, very true.

I do hope that TP is there, and I hope I can gather together everything I need if they are. If not though, I will definatly still bring it!

-Ren-
DreamworldStudio's avatar
SWEET!^_^~<3

yea...I hadn't really thought about selling stuff until THIS year either ^^; though being a guest at AB REALLY jumpstarted the need to do so^_^;; but now I LOVE it, cause it gives me something to do with my time and make a lil money while sitting there chatting with fellow artists or working on art XDehe...beats walking around aimlessly at the cons wondering what the hell to do next after seeing everything^^;;

and you should TOTALLY get a table!^,^V your work would TOTALLY rock in AA!! XD would break up the monotony(sp??) of all the anime/manga style art there XP...not that I'm one to talk, though I like to think I've an unique enough style to separate myself from the rest ^_^;;;....which reminds me...I REALLY need to work on some new images for Portcon that I'll also be selling at Otakon;__; I TOTALLY ran out of time before AB to do ANYTHING new for AB, as I finished My Cat Loki 2 at the end of March, then was sick for a whole freakin week, then threw out my back the following week;__; and the the weekend before AB I threw my back out AGAIN only 10 times worse!;__; so yea, no new art was had;__;...but Otakon WILL feature new art^_^V

Yea...am REALLY hoping that TP will be there too;_; as that's really the only time I get to see any other TP creators/editors/whathaveyou all in one place;__;....but....if not...I'll be a VERY sad puppy!;__;....but at least a puppy with money since I'll be in AA!^^;
lilbit075's avatar
Awww thanks. I think next year at Ota or AB I will get a table with a friend of mine. I've seen some good stuff and then seen stuff that I sometimes wonder how it sells. But I am definatly interested in doing so. Right now I"m trying to work on getting all the writing stuff ready for the possible/not possible pitch at Ota. I'm not the best of writers, but I am a lot better than I was before (I can thank RP for that one ^_~). But I'm having a rough time because it is my own characters, and I have a beginning, and an end its just piecing together everything to flow like it should. Have any tips for when you do yours? Part of it is wondering how many books it can be and I want it to be despite TP's 3 book starter point. I kinda see it in four possibly five but I don't know how to go about it. Anyway...I'm starting to babble. I'm fretting myself over something that I should just relax and look over again in a few days. That's where I guess I wish all my friends weren't in other States or in some cases all the way in Japan (one is doing the english teaching program with Nova) so that I had someone in person to talk to about this stuff. And you're probably like omg Ren why are you telling me all this...haaa...but...since your doin' what you love, and doing it well, who better to ask? I've been all stoked since meeting you at AB, because I got all "Yah new friend," and as it's apparently obvious I love meeting new people and making friends. Fellow artists are always a even bigger bonus. I just don't want to come across as some crazy little fangirl or something, I'm just being artsy and my friendly self. And your super nice so that makes it even easier. Hah...well this post is like a mile long. ^_^

WOOT!^,^ I definitely look forward to visiting your future AA table!^____^V

Yea...I honestly had a UBER tough time getting my proposal together...especially with the story and all>,<...thank GODS I had a FANTASTIC editor that helped me most of the way^___^~<3...so yea...don't know what sort of advice I can give you, except, when planning the 3 book story, start simple to figure out the beginning, middle and end and then take it from there^^;

And man I hear ya!;__; I wish all my fellow comic art and art-in-general friends lived closer to me;__; would be SO much more fun rather than being stuck in a room in my parents house, sitting for hours on end trying to churn out work on time;__;

and YAY FOR NEW FRIENDS INDEED!!^_____^ ALWAYS love meeting new art friends who share the same passions!^,^V and aaaaaaaaaw#^______^# thank you dear! *BIG LOVIN HUGS!!*

and now back to work >.>;;...I've some inked pages that need editing via Photoshop XP
