Dry Spell

I'm having one. It sucks.

I've gone about 3 weeks of not doing anything.

It's driving me nuts.

I hope once I move into my new place and get my office all set up I will get back at it again.

I will be moving on the 31st to a bigger, nicer and cheaper place. It's double the size of the place we're at now and about 125$ cheaper. I'm pretty happy with that. It's a 2 bedroom 2 level place, so I will have my own room to work in downstairs and the bf will have his living room upstairs. I will be able to concentrate, without any background noises like video games or hockey. I will no longer have half of my art supplies in storage. I will have a bigger table to work on so I won't have to sit at the kitchen table to do crafts or I won't have to move my keyboard aside when sketching out ideas for stuff. I will be able to set up my easel! Plus, I will be able to girlie-fie the shit out of the room. Hello Kitty city here I come! Okay, well it won't be that bad, because I do have to share it with the bf, but he won't be using the area as mush as I will. ;)

I think because of the move it has been putting my art on hold. Packing, purging and trying to get things organized has been keeping me pretty busy, especially the last few days.

Though despite having an art block, while out for a walk yesterday, I did manage to get some nice shots of Point Pleasant park. I've only been there twice of the 2 years I have lived here. The real kicker is that it's just a few blocks away from me. I regret not going there before. At the new place I hear there is a park or a trail of some sort, so I will have to look for it and take advantage and not do what I've done for the past 2 years. Being outside makes me happy, so I plan on going out as much as I can this summer.

I plan on finishing my Rainbow Dolls series as well as other projects I have been putting off... I feel terrible not finishing some things that I said I would do. I've just been out of it for awhile. Once moved in I plan on finishing the things I said I would do, I want a clean plate for the new place.

That's all that is new, you can check out my photos on my flickr account.

Hal- Con

Hal-con is a sci-fi / fantasy convention that will be here in Halifax in October. I have been doing a few little things here and there for them. Such as web banners and their twitter background. I am now currently working on some out door banners and painting a Nintendo with their logo on it for them.

Not only am I doing some work for them, I am also going to be in the artist alley selling my work, along with some friends. I am getting super excited for this. I've been working on new illustrations and am getting pumped about getting them printed up as posters. My friends and I are also thinking of making charms, buttons, stickers and bookmarks with cute characters. And if we have the money, tote bags and quite possibly some books. I always wanted to have a book with my work in it.

If you'd like to see what else will be at the Hal-Con convention here is a link to their site: www.hal-con.com

If you do go, make sure to stop by my booth to say hello! :)
