How do I manage multiple brands under one name?

Seriously. My enamels are taking off, but I also still draw, write, and make other things. The enamels are really the only thing that have a “brand name”, otherwise, it’s “Art by Angela Costello” and I register booths and such under Angband Creative. Do I just keep the Angband Creative as some kind of conglomo, […]

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.  

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 […]

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!

A Creative Writing Exercise

I just picked up Wil Wheaton’s thrown gauntlet. See his original post here: http://wilwheaton.net/2016/01/whats-this-guys-story/ Here’s the guy: I have only 150 words. And GO:   Martin put in the glasses and looked in the mirror. “No.” He resigned, and shook his head, “I think the point of being a private investigator is looking far more inconspicuous. […]

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: […]

In other more random news: a fashion rant.

I was going to waste my afternoon catching up on Star Wars: Rebels,  but I actually have to do laundry and pack my husband’s dress uniforms to send across the country. School starts in 2 weeks, and then it’s once again all downhill from there. At least I can say I accomplished utterly nothing over […]

The world lost an entire color today.

It’s a hell of a day to begin making regular posts on a blog during which your impetus is the death of a pop culture icon. Fortunately, I either keep the best company in the world, or the entire world is mourning the loss that is David Bowie. I already got my door knocked on […]
