Before I sink myself back into fallout4

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 30, 2015, 1:54 PM


Hello hello everyone, hope you guys are almost ready for winter!

Since the start of this month, I've been at home, mostly organizing at home (it's been a while since I've gave the office a good clean) and then since last week, mostly playing fallout 4. If you're any bit familiar with this game you'll know that people have gone missing into this game for days maybe weeks. Initially I wasn't all that keen about this game (another gross fps!) but as soon as I found there's a build mode for this game... :3 I am already gone.

Before Fallout 4 though, I was starting to build the foundations for Morie the Witch issue 4. My writing process follows a pattern where first I arbitrarily decide where the story is starting and ending (scope), and then I spend a while asking myself what is the most important detail or event in the story. As the roles of the characters become more defined, the scope of the story also changes to bring out the most important event in the best way. Right before fallout 4, I had just started to define the roles of the character and had started to shift the scope (=starting the story over and over with shifting endings in mind) but I hadn't quite determined what is the most important yet, somewhat because one of the characters isn't totally defined yet...

So there is some activity happening on the drawing side -- lots of invisible mental work!

It's nice to be able to enjoy this downtime, and while I do tend to slack on things when there's no deadline, I hope to make the most out of my downtime before next year.

Speaking of next year!
Here are some of the conventions I'll be at in 2016. I'm really surprised and excited for how new and different next year will be, between promising myself more in-between time to really put hot time into producing Morie (which is why I've been limiting myself to one convention per month) and promising myself to make the most out of my time away from home.

January
Sacanime in Sacramento CA

February
Anime Matsuri in Houston TX

March
Sakuracon in Seattle WA

April
Zenkaikon in Lancaster PA
Castlepoint Anime Convention (CPAC) in Hoboken NJ

July
Connecticon in Hartford, CT

And as always, I have a store online in case you can't catch me at a convention, especially for Morie the Witch :D skimlines.storenvy.com/
and a place for my pottery work only: www.etsy.com/shop/skimlines


FAQ:
skim, you're not gonna be at katsu or anime boston?
There's been a lot of people applying to those so I didn't get into either due to overcrowding
0u0 I personally can't do anything about that. Write to your favorite conventions to voice your concerns.

The glazing on all your mugs are incredible.  The accuracy to realism is amazing especially on the shading from the lip to the teeth.

Your right, sorry for that.  However, I have seen ceramic mugs in your gallery that have an array of high fired colors and designs.  Your work is also very good.

Hey Sandy, are you going to be in Anime Boston 2016? I hope you will, because I want to buy the one or two pottery from you in person.

^^ would love to, but that artist alley is first-come-first-serve, and the sign ups are very competitive. I will try my best to apply as fast as possible, but I can't promise anything.

Unfortunately, they do not consider portfolios to accept their artists. They pick by whoever clicks the fastest.

I understand. If you can make it, then that is great =D. If not, that is fine also. Just let you know you have really good drawings. If I saw you again, I would buy another poster from you because I really like them. Good luck with other Cons ^_^ and have fun.
