The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hey dudes and dudettes! It's been a long time, no?

So a little bit of an update journal, seeing as I've been pretty quiet and on a little bit of a hiatus from my computer.

1.) I got a puppy!

Holy hell, he's a wonderful little monster and is now nearly four months old. He is a Boston Terrier / French Bulldog mix and really the light of my life, I've never had the chance to bond with an animal quite like this before and it's really gotten me moving around much more. As a result I've lost nearly 30 pounds and I feel physically better then I have in a long time. My twitter has a lot of pictures of him if you're an uber nosey person like I am ( twitter.com/_Yewon_ ). His name is "Belmont". Yes, that Belmont.

2.) I'm helping to run a convention!

I'm Artist Alley head at Senshicon a neat anime/game/comic convention here in Alaska. I'm also the resident graphic designer, flyer wizard, contest holder, banner maker and... well... lots of other things haha. Also working closely with our PR & Exhibitor Coordinator. It's going to be a good year I think, with so many new events going on this year. Alongside that, I'm trying to get ready to sell my own wares this year as well (with much needed help from family).

3.) Speaking of - Art Gallery Anyone?

So, one of the events we are holding this year is an art gallery. A free gallery, where artists from anywhere (in and out of Alaska) can submit artworks to have their stuff showcased on a big section of our Exhibitors hall. The art will be seen by 3,000 people over two days (September 27th and 28th) if any of you amazing folks would like to submit some work to this gallery then please, please email me at --> artistalley@senshicon.org . And please know that this is under donation, so your prints will be donated to the convention for galleries in the future. Your name, website, and info will be posted at the bottom of the image on a note card for people to see as well. These will not be sold, or auctioned or used for profit as it's a no-pressure free gallery simply for fun.

4.) Kidney Stuff!

I've been in limbo for about a year now, hoping to get back on active list and I am so close I can taste it. I've been pressuring my coordinator to put me back on since I'm beyond all my infections and I'm doing -really- well right now, it's time to get that darn transplant. I'm really optimistic that I'll be close to getting it this year finally. There's a lot I want to do with my life, so I'm gonna just keep on pushing!

----

So did I leave anything out? I sure hope not. Busy busy busy bee I am, I hope to get back to drawing again soon... as soon as Belmont lets me, that is. =|

I'm really super excited to come up and have a booth anddd I'm working on a few fun possible prints for the art gallery!
Senshicon really sounds like it's going to be an awesome year! The heads of everything seem to have changed a lot since the last time I went in 2011. I'm really looking forward to it! <3

30 pounds!! OMG.. your BMI has got to be in or close to the range you were needing, huh? Belmont is like a child, so yes.. I can see him demanding a lot of attention from his Mama! Katie would agree, her little one should be quote a handful now. Wish i could see a pic, but I do understand Katie's outlook on that. Lots going on to keep you active and focused which is a great thing. It's been weeks since I checked in here on DA and look what I find! Gotta pay more attention, I do.

Much love and hugs....and BTW, a small package will be headed your way soon.

Congrats on the puppy!

As an owner of three dogs and a cat, I can say I know how they steal your heart (...and time and make you move around) x3
But it's all good. I think they bring a lot into my life at least, and they keep me sane at times.
... they can also drive me up the walls with their occasional tricks! I think my highlight moment was when my youngest dog, as a puppy, woke me up by puking on the bed her own poops she had just eaten. GO DOG. This is exactly why I wanted you in my life. So I can wake up to clean shit you just ate off my bed.

Glad to hear you're active in art circles even if not online!


And fingers crossed for getting that darn transplant, it's about time!


Best of luck, let Belmont keep you active and bring you lots of love and laughs, I'll be lurking should you return online.


Now prompted to be active on Twitter again... wants puppy pictures. :ninja:

Great to hear from ya, and hopefully the kidney thing gets done soon!

I admit I'm curious about the art gallery deal, but I'm confused about the prints part of that.  Do we need to provide you with a print, and what happens to them after that particular convention?

Mitch told me about the gallery at Senshi-con, but when I investigated the website it says to fill out a form that I couldn't find XD So hopefully my lazy rear will get around to emailing art to that address soon~

It's good to hear you're doing well with a new furry life addition and good luck with getting your transplant!! :D

Hey Neo!
Glad to hear you are doing better! Congrats on the convention position, and the new pup! He is adorable.
Also, it's such good news that your health is improving enough that you can get that transplant taken care of. Best of luck with a speedy and healthy recovery, when the time comes.
It'll be great to see more works from you, I've missed ya!

Hey, good to hear you again! :D

And what a great news in number 1 and 2! Glad to hear you have a new member of the family (because pets are part of family,too) and good luck in the artist alley :)

As for number 4, I hope you get that transplant soon. And I pray for that.

And lastly, about number 3, is it only in the US or everyone around the world can participate in that art donation?
