Art Trade Updates

Sun Nov 9, 2014, 6:35 PM

Captain America Shield Stamp by SuperFlash1980Insignia - Autobot by SigmaCore

:star: Update for 31 May 2015: Hey, wow, time flies when you're having fun.  It also flies when you're crazy-busy with non-art things, such as convention/art show preparation.  A month and a half went by and I didn't even realize it until I saw the date on this journal.  

Obviously, I'm running behind again.  I still have two art trades to finish, as well as several commissions.  I have SoonerCon to attend at the end of June, Dragoncon and possibly FenCon which have to be ready by early August (I'm mailing away to those two), family vacation, then a local art show in Raytown, THEN it'll be time to get ready for Archon, which is in early October.  You would not *believe* how much time these things consume!  

...Unless you do art shows, too.  Then I bet you know all about what a time sink the preparations can be.  

Oh, hey, how about some shop talk!  Do you do art shows?  Which one or ones do you like a whole lot?  What's the best part about your favorite art show?

Happy 4th of July.

May your weekend be filled with the screams of stupid and worthless hippies being sprayed in the eyes with mace.
rachaelm5 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Heh heh.  I stay away from those kinds of parties.  Nevertheless, thank you.

Hi Rachael.  It's great to see your artwork again since last seeing you at NobleFusion gatherings.  I hope you and the gang are still doing well!
rachaelm5 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Good to hear from you again, man!  Took me a bit to place you, but I saw your Tail Feathers cover art and it finally clicked.  I hope all's going well for you.  Nobles are still running full steam ahead, though these days I'm mostly doing art things rather than writing things.  
Kansasjeeper Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Everything's going great!  Life is busy so the writing has slowed down, but it's still moving forward.  I hope to see you again and tell the Nobles hi from me!
