Thanksgiving Week

Hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving! Mine was great. I cooked again. I love to cook. Its definately a way to relax and have a break from Nanamation.

I made a Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Creamed Corn, Stuffing, Gravy and 3 desserts! A Tiramisu, Rasmalai (indian dessert) and a Apple Crumble Pie. My pie came out super great!

Time to get back to work on Nanamation.

Survived Alternative Presss Expo 2008!

Nanamation survived another year at APE.  It rained like crazy on Sat but people showed up!  Tim made my awesome banner sign holder for my shows and it turned out really great! 

Here is a pic of my booth this year:

This year I made some 1 inch cute buttons with my new button machine! I love buttons! I've already started sketching new button ideas. Hopefully I will have them ready for my next show in Jan.

Shrinkies are always a favorite at the shows. I was planning on not doing them but looks like people enjoy them so they are here to stay.

Alternative Press Expo

I have been a busy bee preparing for Alternative Press Expo (November 1 and November 2).  I just ordered 400 shirts and plan to take them to the screeners this Friday or next Monday.  Just a bit nervous w/a big order like this.

I will be bringing the Buddha and Coffee Junkie back since they seem to do really well.

I am hoping I will get to post to my site before the show but it may have to wait till afterwards.

2 new Nanamation Artworks

Here are 2 new Nanamation artworks that I finished a few weeks ago. They should be up on my store for purchase sometime next week. On the left I call it "Pixie". It's a different style I have been drawing and playing with. I think I like it. The other one is "Peacock Geisha". I always loved peacocks so had to incorporate it in my drawing.

Cancel of Comic Con San Diego

Sadly but true, I will not be going to Comic con - San Diego this year. I withdrew my name from the waiting list because it was just too long of a wait.

I hope to make it to next year's Comic Con!!

Second Year at WonderCon 2008

Wondercon was great!  This was the second year I did Wondercon and I would say the 2nd year was a lot better than the first.  There was a lot of famous comic artist. It was also good to see Daniel and Dawna from Steam Crow. It was nice to met and chat with Debbie from Bumper Boy. Cute Stuff!

2 new Nanamation Characters

Once my shop is up, you can purchase these prints (12x18 poster size)or email me if you want them sooner.

Nanamation on waiting list for Comic Con 2008

It looks like I am on the waiting list for Comic Con 2008. I guess filling out your application late Dec 07 is considered pretty late. I definitely learned my lesson! If I don't get to go to Comic Con this year then I may find some local shows or just spend the summer working on new Nanamation characters. Here are Tim and me at Comic Con 2007. It was our first year at Comic Con and we had a blast! This is where Tim (who loves caricature art) got to meet artist Joe Bluhm He does some amazing and funny caricatures. We loved his art so much that we had him come to our wedding and draw the guests.

But anyway if we can't make to Comic Con 2007 then most definitely we will be there in 2009!

* New Site - New Art Gallery
