Oh, well, and then there was a Patreon.

I’ve been gently urged over the last year or so to create my own Patreon page. I figured I didn’t need the money, so I kept pushing the idea aside. I changed my mind, even if I’m still convinced it’s a form of panhandling. I’ve had luck with Kickstarter, though , so, why not? You […]

May this year be remembered as a smoking crater in my past.

Much like our beloved Carrie Fisher, please, let 2016 die by moonlight, strangled by its own bra. Preferably, a cheap, springy, Walmart caliber bra. See you all at San Diego Comic Fest at the end of February. There will be things, I promise.  

The Irony and the Ecstasy

There’s no real heavy reason I used that title, I just liked it. First and foremost, I suck at updating this thing. Second and secondmost, I’m doing arts again. And writings, but I’ll get to writings. I had to send in verification materials to gain professional access at a couple of conventions coming up, and […]

COMIC CON IS HERE!

GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH! THE MOTHER OF ALL CONS! I’m hanging my artwork in the show this afternoon! I’ll be attending all 4 days, Saturday in costume while my husband has his K-9 robot there. Sunday maybe in costume. Tomorrow (Thursday I’ll be partaking in mostly industry panels and getting my bearings for the site. I can’t believe […]

I did an art.

In the promise of becoming more active on social media, I am failing spectacularly. However, since I relocated, I am at least trying to keep myself busy. Comic-Con International, the big one, the mothership, San Diego herself, is around the corner and I’m displaying in the art show (NOT artist alley.) Therefore, I’ve had to […]

And the Mountain Never Got Closer

I just drove from New Hampshire to Southern California. Here is a short story that kinda sucks, but whatever. This is a cautionary tale about what lies beyond Tucson.   The desert itself is an interesting place, and we knew it wouldn’t disappoint. “We”, being myself, and my copilot on the cross-country roadtrip, Magister Normannorum. […]

Non-Stop Disco

So, while I was at U-Con, San Diego Comic-Con International badges went on sale. …. And I got one. Well, two. I got a 4 day badge for myself, and Saturday and Sunday for my husband, because his work schedule will make it difficult to go the other days. But yes. I have just done […]

U-Con @ UConn!

YES! Somehow the University of Connecticut is allowing my University of New Hampshire student and University of Rhode Island alum butt on campus for a convention! February 20-21st in the UConn Student Union! Come see me! Buy my things! Have a chat! Bring me lunch! Seriously, it’ll be grand!

I did not spend the last 5 years of my life going back to school to be a medievalist to like modern art.

I hate it. Don’t tell me I don’t “get” it, because you don’t fucking “get” it either. A rectangle painted on canvas is not art. It’s the skillful movement of oil paint in the right directions to make a shape. It should not sell for millions. Imagine you’re Michelangelo on completion of the Sistine Chapel, […]

Lawfully Nerded Bliss

So I’ve been on my second marriage now for almost two years. Unlike the first mistake, this one seems to be going strong, and I’m not at all worried about where things are going to take us next. Except this one time he didn’t listen to me. Now, I want to make something perfectly clear: […]
