quote of the day...
“Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well; whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely; in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest.” --- Charles Dickens (1812-1870); novelist
current plans & projects...
I posted some of the artwork I did at the con this morning, this week I want to get all the pencils for outstanding commissions done, I need to do some paperwork and organizing, some housework that got neglected last week for obvious reasons, I need to send out some emails, put some artwork in the mail... it's going to be a busy week.
Art also posted on FurAffinity
Anthrocon went well, I had a good time. My panel was well attended, and while I feel like I stumbled alot, we had some good discussions about technique. I think it would probably be better to have a couple of different watercolor artists up there, so I'll be exploring that option for next time. I have not yet decided if I will run the panel at Midwest FurFest or not; I.. need some time to think about that.
We had a good 4th of July, attended a really stellar party, saw some lovely fireworks, it was a good time, and kept my mind occupied.
This week, I will be working on pencils for all outstanding commissions, getting my queue updated with all the work I brought home from the convention. I think I may not be spending too much time in the Alley at MFF, or if I do, it'll only be for work I can complete at the con. I hate to lose the opportunity for making sales, but I really need to get caught up with the workload I already have. I'll see how things stand as it gets closer in.
I will be attending the LAFF Summer Picnic; I will be playing sous chef for this year's MFF Chairman, takaza. It should be lots of fun, if you're local, be sure to RSVP, enjoy the food (FCN vs MFF Burger Cookoff!), and say hi.
I really want to rename that heading, but can't think of anything other than 'links'. Blergh.
Anyway, today's edition is music. I'm really into interesting and ethnic music, and I'm really into strategy games like Civilization IV. tarinfirepelt gave me this awesome link to one of the expansions' theme music. You can hear the main theme (which I could listen to for hours!) on YouTube.
I believe I have duncandahusky to thank for my obsession with Afro Celt Sound System. Their music combines African and Celtic melodies (as the name implies) and what is described as "epic extended soundscapes". I really love it for background music. I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite piece, but I do particularly like Seed.
And that's it for me this week. Hope you guys have a great one!
