Livestream Interview

Wed Sep 2, 2015, 6:25 PM

Friday, September 4th, around 3:00 PM Pacific Time, the-dragon-artists is going to be hosting an interview with me on Twitch.  The website is here:…

Come ask questions, hang out, and listen to me flail around as I try to figure out this new-fangled 21st Century Internet thing.  I'll have a mic, but no camera.  If we can figure out how to do something like a desktop share, then I'll pull out art and we can talk about technical stuff.  

  • Listening to: Movie soundtracks
  • Reading: Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus series
  • Watching: Big Hero 6
  • Playing: with pencils and erasers
  • Eating: Peanut butter sammich
  • Drinking: Hot chai latte

Hi Rachael,  I didn't know if you go to the GenCon thing in Indianapolis... ....  My son goes, and he will be with his friend Diesel (David LaForce and his wife Lisa). 
rachaelm5 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nah, Gencon is wayyyy too big for me.  Art space tends to be ridiculously expensive, too - on the order of $1000 a table, and that was fifteen years ago when I was first looking into the convention thing.  DragonCon is about as big as I ever go, and even then I prefer to mail in my work rather than go in person.  I'm pretty uncomfortable in big crowds.

" I'm pretty uncomfortable in big crowds.  "... I hear you there! And that is expensive. But I just thought I'd ask!

Happy 4th of July.

May your weekend be filled with the screams of stupid and worthless hippies being sprayed in the eyes with mace.
