My friends and I started a shiny new blog to post our doodles, sketches, projects, school work, and artwork in general. I’m really excited about this project of ours. 😀 It’s still in its baby-stage but come take a look anyway! 😀 SketchArcadium.com
Experimenting with portraits again… On a side note, I may be revamping my sites soon… maybe…
A portrait of an original character of mine.
Here’s the finished portrait of Princess Mononoke. It was fun to paint. 🙂

Playing around with ink and brushes. Still trying to get a hang of it.
This post may be a bit late, but this has to be written about so bear with me haha. FanExpo was last week. I had registered for a table in the artist alley with my dear friend Nettie. Four days of fun, YEAH! To be honest we weren’t that prepared but I think we pulled it off quite nicely. We have had some experience at smaller conventions but nothing of this size so it was pretty mind-blowing to us. I was pretty nervous the first day, I found it kind of hard to interact with other people because of all the “shock-and-awe” I was experiencing. Coming from a small country where there are a few small conventions (where everyone knows each other), you can imagine how different it felt to be at an event of these proportions.
The first two days we were constantly warned about the dreaded Saturday, where it’d be so packed that we would take AGES just to get through the crowd to reach the washrooms. I’d say we were well prepared for that by the time Saturday rolled around. Yes, it was packed. So much that they stopped letting people in for a few hours because the place had reached its full capacity. Unfortunately for us, Nettie had gone out a bit earlier for some fresh air and got stuck outside for a few hours.
Sunday was great too. It was packed, almost as much as Saturday. For me, Sunday was the best day. It was the day I sold the most prints (haha, last minute deals and sales!). Also, I got to trade prints and business cards with other artists, which is pretty cool.
The last two days I was making free sketches for people who could do the Gangnam Style dance for me. It was fun and I got to interact with the con-goers. 😛
I met lots of great people, and amazing artists and cosplayers. I didn’t do much shopping though… I wish I had done more. I only bought one button with a cat on it. The money I spent on the button is going to a cat shelter so I don’t feel guilty about my purchase at all!
Hahaha~ I would TOTALLY register for a table at FanExpo again. It was an awesome experience.
Tomorrow (today, technically) is the last day of FanExpo! Aaa! It has been really fun so far. I’ll be sure to type in a detailed blog post about my experiences at FanExpo after tomorrow if I’m not too tired… For now, have a Doctor.
Fanexpo Canada is this weekend and I’m totally excited about it. I’m not sure I’m ready either haha… it’d be the first North American convention I’ll attend. I hope it’ll be all cool. Yes, I’m back in Canada– woot woot! Classes start next week (right after Fanexpo, how convenient, eh?) and I am convinced that I’m going to be dead tired for them ugh…
I brought my Ada Wong costume with me but I’m not really sure I’m going to wear it because it’s in bad shape… ah well… If you’re going to be around please do visit my friend Nettie and me at our table (A39) in artist alley!
We’ll be doing sketch commissions and selling prints. Come say hi! 😀
As far as prints go… here’s a preview of what I have…
