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!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

My life is made up of projects. I do too many things sometimes and it gets difficult to juggle, but here is a snapshot of everything that is going on at the moment.

The Cat of a Madman is ongoing. It’s technically completely finished, so all I’m having to do is scan them, edit them so they look like the original and upload it. Easy peasy right? But it takes so much *time*. 

I also have The Prophet’s Garden. I’m so close to finishing the next page. When that’s done, I already have two more updates lined up, but due to other things, my computer isn’t even available at the moment for me to work on it. Hopefully that will be remedied soon.

I have a class that I organize and lead at the Sarjakuvakeskus (The Comic’s Center) in Helsinki. It’s every Tuesday and the first Saturday of every month. I try to book things ahead but eventually we catch up and I have to book more. I feel a little bit like I’m forever booking models or making changes to things as people come and go. I’m happy it’s become so popular though! When I took over it was already a good solid class, but now we’re in danger of being *too* popular. It’s free so plenty of people come. Eventually…if it comes to that, I will have to find another space to expand to, or do more classes…We’ll see. I’m also thinking of organizing another exhibition for the class, but I’ll do that when I have more time. Someone else who takes the class might do it. We’ll see. No rush.

I have another comics project that is lurking in the back of my mind that I haven’t had any time to work on at all and I feel very guilty and annoyed at myself but there’s nothing I can do. It’s still there, and it *will* happen gosh darn it.

I’m also a part of a group called the Helsinki International Artists Association. We were going to have an exhibition in May and I did the poster for it. But now it seems that the space was double booked and I have no idea what to think. I’m just one of 24 people and everyone has an opinion. For the moment I’m watching on the sidelines and will wait to see what happens. Meantime I *will* still meet with my dancers and talk to them about things. The Dream Eater project is still a go!

Dance projects wise I have at least two that are in a weird state of development. I need to talk to people and see what we can do.

Work is great. I took over the Team Leader position when our Team Leader Iain had to leave to pursue a bigger and better job. It’s a fun team to work with and the kids are always great to be around. It’s work but fun work and I’m grateful to have it.

 

Finally on top of everything, we’re in the process of moving. We have the entire month, and we’re getting there, but we’re still missing furniture! Instead of working on the things I would like to be working on, it’s unpacking things and contemplating where the hell to put everything. We’ve gone from a 67 square meter flat to a flat of roughly half the size. That's why I don't have my desktop computer yet, as it's...at the other house.

Other general news is that a bridge that I have in my mouth is loose. One side only. I went to the dentist and was immediately referred to a specialist. Apparently my mouth is too complicated. XD I shouldn’t be surprised.

This weekend will be busy with more moving, upacking, organizing things and trying not to drop any balls. I can’t wait until Easter break as Marja and I both have time off work. Also, if the weather would warm up a bit that would be great. Thanks.
