Hello DA journal, it's been some time. I`d first like to apologize for the lack of art in 08 it was a pretty sad year for arting but now I got the new Open Canvas so I should be pooping out a few pieces this week just so I can get use to it's ... upgrades?

Now second on my agenda of self hating artist woes, is I missed art table sign ups for the Vancouver anime con Anime Evolution. Now I'm kicking myself due to the fact I'm the mercy of this waiting list business. 80 freaking tables sold out in a few days! Man I`m so bummed about this, well I could always sit on the street corner and pedal my wears.

And if there are any Vancouverites out there and have been to the artist fair or had a table there can they let me know how busy it is and how well I should prepare for prints and magnets?

Any way thats it thats all!

Love your friend y and mine, Marshu :spidey:

Work is big part of life now, it's pretty much impossible to find time to do any art faggery. ^_^; Would make promises like "I should have a X-mas picture at the least for you guys by next week" but the back ground I'm thinking of will take for ever.

BUT I am working on stuff 5 different stuffs to be exact. So one day in the future I hope to get those finished. But to those of you (if any) that have been waiting for new Marshu art, I'm deeply sorry T______T

Hugs and kisses! Marshu

So stay tuned and keep your eyes open.

So thank you every one I will try my hardest to impress you even more now ^_^

I'm gonna try doing a weekly short drawing and see how that goes! It may be relevant it may be completely random but just keep an eye open in my webcam section of my front page.

Woot Aikon was blast! Where to start. Umm how bout the night before aikon.

Alright the Thursday night I was printing stuff with count-platypus till 2 am then after she left I was still up till 4:30am making shirts and printing more stuff out. I didn't manage to get it all done plus I needed to wake up at 6 to let Kroger drop his stuff off. So I went to bed at 5am leaving the kitchen a complete mess…

Waking up at 6 only getting 1 hour of sleep was most terrible but I got cleaned up and Kroger swag by to drop of his stuff and get some printing done. Then he went off to volunteer so I finished up my shirts and prints. Then me and count-platypus had some last minute shopping to do thus we did that and went back to her place where I just died on her floor from lack of sleep. We headed back to my place from there we bussed to the con. After getting in the con we headed to the artist room where we met up with Kroger and set up. I did fairly well that day, and I got some little boy to hold my will yaoi 4 food sign… he reminded me of pie-is-i mwahahaha.

Saturday! The day me and count-platypus were cosplaying as Raito/Light Yagami and Misa. I was super pumped from the start but alas I had some Problems I'd rather not talk about which made us abit late ^_^; AANNNYYY who moving on, we reset up……… and eagerly awaited the grand sales of the day. Cathleen our super cool neighbor to our left was dressed as Chun-Lee which was insainly awesome so I took a cool picture… (I bought some of her art and did an art trade for a print and some food X3). After a rather un-eventful hour or so me and count-platypus went to take pictures of ourselves cuz we are vain like that. So here's an ass load of pics………… I think we made a rather sexy Misa and Light (I look sexy in a suite) after the photo shooting we went back and relaxed behind the table to sell stuff and send Kroger 's army dude on little missions… And then I saw a freaking cloud in a dress plushy… wow that thing was awesome he had leather panties that had "I <3 Sephy" on them kukukuku so naughty. after the art room I had to hang around a bit longer cuz Kroger had to volunteer so I talked to some folks, watched the sailor moon movie (My word sailor Jupiter on the big screen so hot X3), and watched abit of nightwalker I think it was called(Mmmmm ankle-less angels are hot) met up with a pants-less yuna19 and went to the dance. MY WORD THAT PLACE SMELLED! So I danced to 2 songs and a slow song hit so I eeped and went back to the night walker room where Kroger was volunteering. After we were done that yuna19 brought us back to her hotel room and we had food and drinks (She's a life saver we didn't eat anything all day!) THANK YOU <3 we left there around 12ish and we printed more stuff off at my place and went to bed.

Sunday was nice and slow, when I arrived I got a rather sexy surprise A SYE  PLUSHY made by the talented vickykitty (I'll post pictures of it later). A few people wanted me to sign their prints that they bought off of me mainly cats10 and  george16 (had a table across from me) they were cool about it though, but man my signature is so gross X3. I also put my Axel painting… up for auction and that didn't go to hot, I had to buy it back ^^; but luckily a kick ass Roxas approached me later and bought it off of me for $25…

My total Profit of the weekend was around $380, $90 of which I spent on stuff -_- man I bought way to much but it's all stuff I would of attempted to ordered off the net.

So I'd like to thank every one who came out to say hi and every one who bought my art. THANK YOU <3
