I'll be running my artist alley table at Supanova Perth this weekend! You can find me at stall 31 in the artist alley.
It'll probably be my last convention of the year, as work things are getting pretty busy.
New prints (since Oz Comic-con Perth)
Colouring in pages (there's new ones, but not pictured)
Anyway, hope to see you there!
Hey guys~ My partner and I are flying out to Melbourne for Oz Comic-con this weekend! I haven't run an artist alley stall in Melbourne since Manifest was a thing (I think it was 2010!), so I'm really hyped!
I'll have artwork poster prints, mini prints, pins and colouring in pages for sale. Here are a few of the prints! I'll be bringing some older paintings too, as it's been so long!
Colouring in pages - these are printed on thick Quill board and are tested for colour pencils, markers and watercolour.
Pins! I'll have the Doctor Who set, these Pokemon ones, Ghibli, Avatar and a bunch of other types.
So yep, if you're going, you can find me in the artist alley, stall 26, near stage 3! See you there~!
Just one more day until Oz Comic-con Perth! I’ll be there with a bunch of new artwork posters, mini prints and pins! I’m also trialling a new thing - I’ll have some mindfulness colouring-in pages of some of my lineart pieces.
Oh, and speaking of Oz Comic-con, I’ll be going to the Melbourne one this year! I haven’t been over there with my art in a good few years, looking forward to catching up with old friends too!
New prints this year:
Just look for 7th Heaven, near the cosplay area:
The artist alley has moved to the level 2 in the Grand Pavilion (where the panels and screening rooms were last year). Alas, no view over the race course this year!
My stall is "7th Heaven", along the right hand side. Stall number 7 even, I'm sure someone had fun with that.
I fly out tomorrow, so if you'd like to preorder any prints or pins, please let me know by tonight! For info on preordering, see my last journal: Preorders for SMASH! in Sydney
I'll be at SMASH! again this year, with tons of new art posters, mini prints and pins!
Unfortunately last year I ran out of a number of prints and had no way of printing extras overnight while in Sydney, so I'm offering pre-orders for prints this year!
1 A3 print: $7
2 A3 prints: $12
4 A3 prints: $20 (any extra after that, $5 each)
I'll have the majority of my prints from the last three years or so - if there are any older ones you'd like, just ask.
Prints come in a plastic sleeve and I'm happy to autograph if you request it.
Mini prints (4x6 inch photo size)
$2 each or 3 for $5
1 pin: $2
Ghibli set: $5
Avatar Pin set: $7
Doctor Who set: $16
Doctor Who set + Donna & Rose: $18
To order, just send me a DA note with your name and what you would like! Please pick up your order from my table at SMASH before 3PM Sunday.
See you all in Sydney!
I'll be running my art stall as usual this year, with a bunch of new prints and pins:
Here's the map!
In addition... the flights are booked and the table is confirmed! I'm coming to SMASH! in Sydney again this year!
SMASH will be over the August 8-9 weekend at the Rosehill Gardens. I can't wait to catch up with my cosplay and artist friends and meet more of you fine people! I'll update with more info when I have it.
Swancon (2-6 April)
Swancon's the first convention I ever went to - it's a small (200-400 people) convention of all things geeky that takes place in a hotel. Kinda feels like home and it's drastically different to the big conventions. This year the guests were John Scalzi, Kylie Chan and Anthony Peacey. I think the highlight for me was hopping onto the world building panel with the writers, to assist by drawing a world they made up on the spot on the whiteboard! We ended up with a mountainous, low density, three mooned world of flying marsupial Octogoats. The second photo is me looking super evil at the ball, with the fan-made GoT throne.
My other highlight was actually the last day, as I got to hang out with old friends (and new ones!), play silly card games and attend some great panels. Finally, I was super honoured to win both the audience's choice and judges choice in the art show! Thanks so much! Also, thank you to everyone who bought my prints in the art show!
Here's my little booth on set up day! Unfortunately I didn't take any photos during the convention itself. I keep expecting conventions like Oz Comic-con and Supanova to hit their peak, but they just still seem to be growing in size. I think I lucked out this year with the corner booth, even though it would have been nice to be closer to the main artist alley. Many, many thanks to Doug for helping out!
Fortunately, there were a few quieter times of day where I was able to get guest's autographs! I really wanted Billie Piper's autograph, and finally had time on Sunday afternoon! I brought along the print I'd had autographed by John Barrowman last year. I'm always pretty anxious when I have a print that I've painted of the actor/ess, particularly if it's one they might have been seeing throughout the convention! But Billie was SO SWEET! She seemed genuinely excited that I'd come to see her and brought her one of the prints and said I'd made everyone's eyes seem so kind. DaaaaaAAAAAAAHHH~~~!!! *fangirls*
Although, she seems to have written "Beautiful werks!!" XD
Also, I thought I'd give a shout out to a few of the amazing artists who were there this year! You should check out the works of Angelina Lim, Austen Mengler, Miki Price and Ink and Pixel!
Freedom Fall will be back, alongside our new project, Dead End Alley - a virtual reality zombie hack and slash game. You can try it out on the oculus rift at our booth. We're near the indie arcade, opposite Media Molecule.
So yep, would love to see you there! We also have some lovely new Freedom Fall merch, including laser cut dog tags, prints, badges and limited edition box sets.
It's only been a few months since Supanova, but I'll be back in Sydney again for SMASH! It's one of my favourite Aussie anime cons, so I'm really excited that it's moved to being two days rather than one! For the first time in ages, I'll be running a stall there, so look out for my 7th Heaven art stall in the artist alley! I'll be bringing prints and kanzashi, with my best friend, who will be selling her handmade origami crane earrings.
I'll have a bunch of new prints, as well as some older favourites that I've never sold in the eastern states before!
By the way, we've also added two new levels and hard mode!
If you miss out, I'm sure we'll be on sale again in the future - I'll keep everyone in the loop when we are.
Update: I'll be flying out tomorrow morning, so if you'd like to preorder any prints, please note me before 9pm tonight.
For the first time, I'll be at Supanova Sydney as well as Perth! \o/ Sydney Supanova's just one week away (June 13-15), so exciting! (John Barrowman! Stan Lee! Grant Imahara! So much fangirling!) Perth is the week after, so it's the 20-22nd!
I'll have prints of most of my recent work, along with a few older favourites. If you'd like to, you can pre-order by sending me a DA note with the prints you would like, your name and which city you'll be at.
Standard A3 prints are $5, but if you pre-order, I can also print high quality, dye-ink A3 prints on 300gsm gloss photo paper for $10. As usual, if you order four and you can have one extra print for free.
