Cosplay aspirations

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 16, 2010, 9:56 AM


I'm trying to decide on a convention to attend this year.  I want to cosplay as Rorschach (natch), and I'm looking at ACen 'cos it's close/affordable. Dragon*Con would be my pie-in-the-sky preference if money were no object, but the odds of that one are pretty bad.  Maybe C2E2 would work too, now that I think on it.  David Lloyd is one of the guests, which could be way cool!

Sigh... y'know, it really doesn't help that I'm easily ten years older than most of the fan base out there right now.  Adventuring is much easier when one is younger!  xD

Thanksgiving

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 26, 2009, 9:07 PM


Appropriately enough, I've been spending the evening thanking people. xD  I fell horrifically behind and had :+fav: messages from all the way back in June.  June!  

*fails at etiquette*  :no:

But really, I do owe a debt of gratitude to several tens of thousands of people here on dA.  When I started out, I had no idea that some of my work would be seen over a thousand times.  Even if the same people visited more than once, it's still over a thousand times!  That's just amazing.

So thank you guys - thanks for dropping by, and commenting, and adding my art and stories into your collections.  I (obviously) don't stay current with all of it, but I want you to know that I really do appreciate it.  :hug:

Egad, the last journal entry was in May... :disbelief:

Well.  

Obviously, fandom has shifted. I've been writing for Watchmen, but the bulk of it has been either highly improbable bromancy slash, obscure inside jokes or odd drabbles, so I haven't posted a whole lot anywhere except for the Watchmen Kinkmeme (v. 2.0) where one can write utter insanity/drivel under the cover of anonymity.  ;P

I'll go ahead and date this post for the next god-awful stretch of time until I update again and say that I'm working on a costume for Halloween.


Three guesses.  :XD:



And that's about it.  Until next time!  :wave:

Settling in again

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 14, 2009, 5:44 PM


Huzzah, the Muse awakes again!  :boogie:

No telling how long it will take me to complete anything, but I've got a chibi mini-comic in progress, an idea for a portrait-ish image of Evey, inspiration from an author on FFnet who's doing an intriguing series of word-prompt shorts (for "Watchmen", but it could easily be translated to VfV), and a completely insane impulse to create a Minor Arcana set to complete my VfV Tarot (which is badly in need of neatening, but that's a whole other issue...)  

I'm guessing it's all due to a combination of work going well (so far, knock on wood!) and the weather warming up again.  I don't know about anyone else out there, but I turn into a complete slug during winter.  x-P

Here's hoping all your Muses are doing well and rarin' to go! :)

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 28, 2009, 8:31 PM


...RL just has the Muse a bit worn out.  The job is going well, but it's sort of eating the rest of my life at the moment.  I walk at least 3/4 of a mile every day (the place is huge and consists of multiple buildings) and at any given moment there are at least three different projects going.  :faint:

Which is all just a long-winded way of saying I haven't been able to write or draw anything new of note for some time, but I'm still here. xP

A public service message of the geek kind

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 7, 2009, 7:05 AM


[Edited slightly]

To anyone thinking of seeing "Watchmen" who has not read the graphic novel:

Read it first.

The film was made for fans, and you will miss important details.  I initially said it would cause you to get lost if you hadn't read it, but that's not necessarily true.  But I still say you'll get confused at points.  xD


I loved it, btw, but I'm waiting to discuss it 'til more people have either seen it or decided not to.

That is all.

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 1, 2009, 8:30 AM


Ok - I know full well that my fandom isn't exactly popular, and that there will be a tapering off of art/stories/whatever in said fandom as time passes (I myself am guilty of it.)  

However - That does not mean I don't get irritated when my "V for Vendetta" search feed brings up all sorts of random shyte that gets caught up in the search because someone put the words "v for vendetta" (or "v", or "vendetta"...) in their description.

I can't tell you how many times I've looked at a feed and uttered a brief "WTF? :O_o:" at some weird scribble that only showed up in the search because the description said "OMG I just got done watching V for Vendetta it's teh AWESOME and oh by the way here's a stupid picture I drew 'cos my roommate made me HAHAHAHAHAHA"

...

*headdesk*

I so wish there was a way to filter those out.

Well, things will be changing for me in a little under two weeks.  My old job petered out, which was bad, but the new job I landed pays better, so I can live with it.  ;D  I have absolutely no idea what it's going to do to my so-called free time, or how well I'll like it, or what.  But believe me, I'm happy to have it and I'll be doing my best to make it all work out. :phew:

New Year

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 30, 2008, 7:22 AM


Well, here we are approaching 2009.  I have a cold.  Hooray.  :XD:

A couple of years ago, for various reasons, I shifted my observance of the New Year to November 5th.  It's still working quite well for me, so this time of the year is actually something of a non-event.  ;P  However, I know that most other people do put a lot of significance on Dec. 31st - Jan. 1st, so I wish y'all a happy, healthy, prosperous new year that's exciting for all the right reasons.  :love:

If you make resolutions, I wish you the best of luck with them.  Just remember:  Lofty goals are admirable, but it's only impressive if they're actually attainable. ;)  Baby steps will get you there!  :D

I'm behind in learning about this, but perhaps I'm not the only one.

Evidently the Chinese government has decided that this place is unsuitable for its citizens to access.  > news.deviantart.com/article/65… <

Above and beyond my fondness for the characters, this is just one of many reasons I am a fan of V for Vendetta and Alan Moore.

The story is not just a work of fiction with "hawt" main characters; it deals with very real issues that have happened throughout history and continue to happen to this day.  It is both a warning and a comfort, because although it reminds us of the monstrosities we're capable of, its existence means that at least some places still allow some freedom of expression.

We must not take anything for granted, no matter where we live or how things have been in the past.  We are all responsible for our future.

[Not V-related, apologies in advance ^^;]

Well, thanks to the economy being what it is, I've been looking for ways to put my "hobbies"  (oh, such an innocuous name for something that occupies so much of my time!) to a slightly more gainful use.

I can't sell my V fanart - aside from the legal prohibitions, I just can't bring myself to do it.   What I've done instead is branch into another genre I've been interested in, namely Steampunk.  I've begun creating a number of Steampunk/Victoriana/Fantasy accessories and featuring them on this account:

:icontempusfrangit:TempusFrangit


If you feel inclined to have a look, please do so - and while I'm pimping, I should also mention the Steampunk club on dA as well:  

:iconsteampunk-club:Steampunk-club

There is some Seriously.  Awesome.  Stuff.  out there.  :D


Whew - thank you if you stuck with this all the way through!  :phew:  I am now returning to my reassuringly V-centric holiday plans.  :plotting:

I also fixed the links to peahopeless' stories that are attached to some of my drawings, so they'll lead to the right place once again.  :)

My life has become... interesting on a few fronts, so my artwork production is still stuttering.  Well, that's not entirely true - I do have something in the works.  It's just for Christmas, so it's not going to be posted here for a while yet! :lol:  I've at least been writing as I can, so that's been helpful.

I mentioned this before, but just in case:

The author :iconpeahopeless:peahopeless, for whose stories I drew much of my artwork, recently had her site taken down due to AOL no longer supporting that service. But fear not!  All her stories can now be found at the V/Evey Fanfic Backups site --> sites.google.com/site/thevevey…;. I will be working to correct all links with my images as soon as possible.

My apologies in advance for having broken links attached to my artwork for a bit...
