We are 10 days into December so I thought I would share how things went at the Holiday Geek Expo.
First off, I need to say I love doing the show. It’s a fantastic excuse to spend 2 days with people I normally only see at conventions. Unless something huge happens then I will likely continue to do the show year after year.
This year was slow. I also got sick. Day one I setup and had what looked like a good spot. The people around me were all dealing in cool stuff. A couple hours in though I started to get a migraine. I don’t normally get migraines but the oils at the both I was next to really got to me. Daniel and Jules saved me and move me over to the other room. Daniel literally grabbed a corner of my table and pulled it next door. Fortunately, the whole thing was on wheels.
Day two went better for me. I had about as many overall sales but some of the bigger items went. Including the stripped band saw box that I loved.
So, Geek Expo. Not a bust and a very good time.
SO I wanted to give anyone reading this a bit of an update. First off you can see most of what I do over on Facebook. Not all of you read facebook so here are a few samples of what I’m selling at the next few upcoming shows. Read more
I got some much needed wood working time in. I got started by buying a band saw. It’s been a tool I’ve wanted but not needed for a while. Or at least I thought I didn’t need it. I can’t believe how comfortable I am using it and how quick it made some work I had been doing in a dangerous fashion previously. Seriously you should have seen me cut out ornaments last year. It wasn’t pretty. Here are a few of the photos (below the cut). Read more
My son has made a list of sketchcards and this one was really fun. I give you Protoman.
I did some star wars cards.. I suspect that I’ll do more leading up to the new movie.. I’m getting excited. Read more
I actually have art I could share but haven’t yet. I have ideas I’m kicking around and I want to get them out but I don’t think they are ready. Really the issue is that I did one comic and I’m not happy with it. It looks okay but it looks like every other comic I do. I’d like to try out a different style but still keep it simple enough that it would look good in black and white.
I’ll keep you posted.
I from time to time still update what was once my daily comic. It’s something I really want to get back to and I have no proper excuse for not doing. If you head over to the Madscott Comic site you can see the dragon skull I drew as well as the comic archive.
Maybe I’ve been reading to much Game of Thrones lately.
So over the weekend I met up with my niece and she got a chance to show off he new puppy. I had previously seen photos of this dog but in the photos he looked much larger. I took the opportunity to snap a few photos and thought I would share them with all of you.
I’m not a big fan of April Fools day. I’m more of a cautious observer. With that said I have no plans to try and fool any of you kind readers.
I will say though that ThinkGeek makes the best April Fools Days posts.
In Site related news I have been adding more photographs to the gallery. If you have been following me you will know that these are from older sets and are on Flickr. I wanted to pull a few of my favorites here for the purpose of highlighting them.
Starting next week I think I will flesh out the hand drawn work more.
Recently I took the family on a vacation to Biloxi. This was the first time I’ve been to Mississippi and we had a good time. I did manage to squeeze in some time with the camera and I felt rusty but enjoyed myself. My biggest problem was that I was being lazy and left the ISO on auto so some of my photos had a much higher ISO setting then I wanted. In the grand scheme of things not a bit deal.
I’ll be uploading the photos a little at a time but you can see them in the gallery.
