Hourly Comics day was February 1st! This year's was pretty exciting what with me having minor surgery and having to take a week off, but it was all good and it was fun (although I ALWAYS struggle with finding a proper pen and all). I've done them in 2009 and 2010 (not in 2011 cuz it would just have been 8 hours of nothing at my dayjob) and they're fun.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 2011 was full of ups and downs for me but upon reflection it was one of the best I've had art wise. I've started and am still going full on a fan comic I STILL like after all this time, my art went to SDCC without me, I did the most art I've done in a while that I'm SO happy with, I SELF PUBLISHED A BOOK WITH MY AWESOME FRIENDS, I exhibited at APE and had SO much fun. As much as I sometimes feel down about things, this was a kick-butt year seriously. I hope this is the start of something to come :)

2012 is an adventure already, I'm so excited. More VIDYA GAMES! (omg is it march yet?!? all the marketing has made me neutral for ME3 but it still is one of my most anticipated) I'm going to cosplay at an anime convention, I lose my day job in the summer and the world is open again, I will probably finish this darn comic and start another, WHO KNOWS! ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!

I am most thankful for meeting and getting to know SO many of you internet people here and on tumblr and twitter. I wish i could throw a giant party even though we're all separated by distance but jsyk, THANK YOU for being parts of my life. Sometimes it gets a little lonely being a solitary, hermity, socially-awkward illustrator but THANK YOU for making my life much more fulfilling :)


(listen to the bridge! cuz the rest of the song is cheesetastic)
Here's to 2012 :)

What is your favorite Disney movie?


The Ugly Dachshund.

When I was a kid, I was a SUCKER for animal shenanigans movies. Or animal/dog movies period (my other favorite movie was Homeward Bound. Stick a puppy in it and i'd watch period). This came on the Disney Channel and I was sucked in and watched it every time it went on. It's still super cute though in that old-sixties movie cute kind of way. And the entire movie is that trailer, really. GREAT DANES ARE SO GANGLY! It was my favorite movie when I was a kid, I still watch it every now and then but now i view it through nostalgia and with more information of what the time period was like (like I didn't understand why the couple in the movie slept in separate twin beds. Also I never caught the "racist for comedic effect" asians when I was a kid D:).

My favorite animated Disney movie is One Hundred and One Dalmatians (where i fell in love with the scratchy Xerox style of animation and the art style). And my most favorite live-action Disney movies besides The Ugly Dachshund is Escape to Witch Mountain (the 1995 version) and Heavyweights :D

ABOUT TIME! I am a lazy bum-pants. sorry. It took a while to adjust back to the routine but I think i've got a hold on things. SO HERE IS AN APE 2011 RECAP POST!

This was our table on Sunday! When we had our things more together :P It was a great learning experience for our first con ever and we all had an awesome time, honestly :D We are totally planning to go again next year, BIG table this time (this is only a half table), with a totally new collab project (we think comics :D). And maybe do more cons in the future (Cindy and Taryn are looking at more SoCal cons, I am thinking TCAF in 2013 since we will miss the 2012 deadline :D)

THE AWESOME STUFF:
  • SAN FRANCISCO!!! I LOVE my old city and I miss it a lot (I do not miss the very small spaces for very large amount of rent aspect though). Our hotel room was quite nice and cheap and located in the same neighborhood Cindy, Jeremy and I used to live in :D mostly I <3 SF because of FOOD. LOOK AT THIS CRAWFISH BEIGNET (Brenda's on Polk and Ellis). Also, everything devolves into journeys to the 24 hour donut shops when I'm around Cindy and Jerm
  • Seeing my BFFs Cindy and Jerm again and spazzing out about games (Jerm is going on a press tour in a couple weeks for Uncharted 3 so he was super excited about everything)! <3 <3 <3 and hanging out with Taryn all weekend! And got to see Tiya too even though she was busy! 
  • Seeing oxboxer as Cindy and I checked in (hooray for seeing friends you don't see very often)! And meeting the rest of the Comic Strip Club, the magical Viking Katie and Sparkle Unicorn Kelly! They had the most SPARKLY booth in the concourse, yup yup :D (you can see parts of Jemma's awesome pirate cat comic, Captain Kitten, here on her tumblr.)
  • Meeting chibimiji (and friend!) at the con and at the Isotope Comics party! OMG! Now we have upgraded from creepy nerdy internet friends who live vaguely in the same area to creepy nerdy internet friends who know what each other look like! 
  • Meeting SO MANY awesome and inspiring artists at the con and after! And everyone was SUPER NICE. Including ktshy and her bro Shaggy (they loved my business cards and bought a couple buttons later, I bought Silly Kingdom), sitting next to Jen Wang (of Koko Be Good, she signed my copy I brought and i bought all her prints and scoped her friend's stuff at the table but I ran out of money) all weekend and excusing myself for nerdy behavior she may have witnessed, and completely dissolving into a babbling pile of GOO when Craig Thompson signed my copy of Habibi (omg it was SO bad, I could NOT stop. But he was super nice about it and called me "Regina like Regina Spektor?" which everyone says but I totally love cus Regina Spektor is awesome). Jeremy, because he didn't have to be at the table, got more time to hobnob and meet people he knew (he met Tim Schafer again (not at a drunk E3 party :P) and Scott Campbell and see his old friend Jason Felix)
  • Meeting SO MANY cool people who stopped by the table and COOL PEOPLE in general! We only had 2 WTF things happen the whole weekend but they weren't enough to color my perception of awesome comic and art fans :D People I remember: artist Yojambo stopped by and gave us her card (so cute!) and a couple people spazzed out with us about Mass Effect, Naughty Dog and My Little Pony :D
  • ISOTOPE PARTY! PARTY AT A COMIC SHOP
NOT SO AWESOME:
  • Taryn was charged 30$ for a pitcher of beer by a crazy coked out bartender at Zeitgeist (WHAT HAPPENED, YOU USED TO BE COOL) and we all kinda live on tight means. But OMG, the dude who talked to us with Katie at the Isotope Party who was with the California College of the Arts asked her about our night on Sunday and gave her a free book to cheer her up (SO NICE!)
  • It was SUPER HOT in the Concourse on Saturday. It was a very nice weekend (the last time I went to APE 3 years ago, it was a torrential downpour) but SO HOT. They tried to open all the doors to provide more circulation but where we were, in the middle of the concourse, it was kinda miserable for a while since the building is an old airplane hangar. It got better on Sunday and OF COURSE, it RAINS on Monday. And the sun directly hit our table every day as the sun rose, which was bad on the migraines.
  • it was EXTREMELY HOT at the Isotope Comics party D: Isotope is a totally awesome comic lounge but was very ill equipped to handle that many people D: But there was free beer and drinks! But we had to leave, our little party of 6, because it was too stuffy and crowded but everybody was SO NICE. (And Katie won the Isotope Comics Minicomic Award! Check out ROK!)
  • Our table, although at a good area in the middle of the table arrangements. it was WAY in the back, which only sort of sucked. It was just like a mile and a half to walk to every day and we didn't get THAT much traffic. OH WELL, wasn't a big loss. We had a lot of space behind us so that was fine. :D
THINGS I REGRET
  • Not being able to get a copy of Kate Beaton's new book (they sold out on sunday and the lines were too long for her to sign it.), Scott Campbell's new book (sold out!), and The Anthology Project (also sold out, now have to pay for very expensive Canada shipping but probably a christmas present to myself). And tons of other books I have no money for anymore but omg i want all the books forever 
  • Generally being too shy about meeting people and self conscious in my spazz state. I like meeting new people but I get overwhelmed and revert back into shy me when I feel too paranoid. But I'm getting used to it and working through it!
SUMMARY: ARTISTS ARE NICE and it's the BEST thing EVER when they collect us into a con that's just about art and small press. TOTALLY doing it again next year :D

ALSO HEY!
MY BIGCARTEL SHOP IS OPEN!

(copies of the book, my sketchbook and tons of shark things are available!)
NOW TO CATCH UP ON ALL THE PROJECTS. ALLLLLLLLLL OF THEM (it is looking like december is gonna be a fan comics NaNoWriMo maybe :D)
