Wow! So much has happened since my last journal. I feel like I've been neglecting this page since I've been so busy with my photography page.
Well, ACEN photos are all finished, currently working on photos from Anime North (which was AWESOME!!! as it has been for every year that I've gone to AN).
And I just got back from Colossalcon in Ohio. Was my first time to this con, and it was AMAZING! It was at a resort that had 2 waterparks and a petting zoo!! OMG! So many animals! Parakeets, Giraffes, Zebras, Warthogs, Bunnies, Jackrabbits, Camels, Goats, Deer, Antalopes, GAH! So many!
The Giraffes were the best! One followed us as we walked around it's pen and came up to us so we could pet him. Lol their tongues are SO long too! XD
I went to Colossalcon with my friends and , and we roomed with some amazing people at Colossalcon, like , Ackson, and a whole boat load of others. Everyone was very nice and great to hang with. It was basically 1 of 2 rooms that were the Canadian contingency of the con. Most of us were from the Greater Toronto Area, a few exceptions were from other areas, like Ottawa or London, but it was cool getting to room with a friendly and familiar group of people.
We got the to the con on Thursday (I drove for the first time to the US), and went to the waterpark for the evening. Next day I had 2 shoots scheduled, but when I wasn't shooting, I was helping out kaiser-mony with her table in Artist's Alley. She and Enter-Stinky were cosplaying Articuno and Moltres (my old cosplay from AN 2010) for the weekend, though they were in their kigurumi's for Sunday because we had to leave fast and early Sunday to get home.
I had 2 more shoots on Saturday but none on Sunday, which was a huge relief. Merch-wise, I picked up some badges for me and kaiser-mony that were Avengers related (she got the Loki badge, I got Iron Man and Thor, hehehe! My Avengers buddy) and I also got BECK: Mongolican Chop Squad for $24, and I got a huge Avengers movie poster for my apartment when I move back in September. Otherwise, I didn't spend much, just for food and gas.
Hahaha!! Live to Rise = song of the weekend (Yay Avengers! XD It was my alarm clock for the room.)
But yeah, it's been a very good month and a half since I last updated. My co-op placement is going SO well, cannot even begin to explain. Everyone at the studio is so chill. They even invited me and the other intern to an art showing at a brewery that was happening by the CN Tower. The artists I think were all graduates of the program I'm currently in, so it was very inspiring to see where they were now. Got to mingle with lots of artist types and man was the art beautiful!
I'm trying to get back into drawing a bit this summer. Usually I avoid drawing because I'm so burnt out by school, but with my co-op, it's inspiring me to get back into my art and do stuff for myself.
So hopefully I'll have some new things to post up here in the near future.
In the mean time, my photography is going well, you can check out newer posts on my other DA page LiquidCocaine-Photos
