So much for the fanfare!



For Califur, which has a safari theme, I decided to be non stereotypical and do a safari of Aussies! What's this well built dingo looking for? a baby?



This is the left most panel of my africa piece. IF I finish ALL of them before Califur, I'll make one big assembled print to have matted and framed for sale at the con.


This is the flyer of my show that's up until 5/30/09 at the Sweet Spot cafe 7811 Aurora ave N Seattle.



These are pieces from my show. There were 28 total pieces. Eventually I'll post some photos of the reception. I was all dressed up with no one to impress.

After all the work I put into it and money I spent of food, the reception was a bust. Very few friends showed up and no random walk-ins. But it's really the fault of the location: it's on Aurora/highway 99, there's no parking and as much as I told everyone I knew and The Stranger and The Time and The Seattle Weekly, my publicity skills fail me. I do however have Califur coming up in June and that's always a blast and a half, especially since I'm not with my ex.

Yesterday (5/17/09) Nicky and I got to go to the spa and talk about exes and my current and how she and I hadn't talked in over a year because of that whole messy situation. we discussed all the friends and contacts I've lost since that whole business. she came to my show btw.

In other news, I've finally gotten my new g5 tower up and running. Steel is a big powerhouse and transferring all the data from Sphere and Horizon via Alexandria has been a pain, but having finished chronologically ordering ALL my artwork, I feel really good! That done, I'm able to show off some of the recent artwork of done. Enjoy!

I ALWAYS say this, but more coming soon!

It was good to see you at Califur! I'm sorry I spent most of the con either asleep or falling asleep. >.>
