Back? Maybe, Probably… Hopefully.

Hi world! I know, I totally suck at keeping you guys posted, but I promise: I do have a reason for all of this. To give y’all a (mildly) brief overview of what has gone on these past couple of months, keywords: crazy & hectic.

Last time I was here I was heading to San Diego for SDCC… well, it happened and it was everything I expected and hoped for, and soooo much more. I had the pleasure of going for Bleeding Cool and, once again, I was given the best opportunity ever and had the most amazing experience.

First: the city was so beautiful and the people are incredibly nice. It still feels like I was there in a dream and not in reality. I met many amazing artists/creators and made new fantastic friends whom I had the pleasure of dorming with. I didn’t purchase or take much considering I had to travel with a limited amount of baggage, which was already fully packed with more clothes than I should’ve taken in the first place… seriously, travel light, guys-it’s not worth it to take too much crap. I will be posting the links I contributed to BC and talk more about the whole trip/experience.

A bit before heading there we put up a site (Old Man Geek and I), which is still on its way up- but we are working on new original content and many projects to get it up and running full-steam: www.oldmangeek88.com, to which I contribute and edit for. Go check it out! I will be, also, posing more about this and link up to my contributions. I am currently working on a bi-weekly project called Moonie Monday, in which I talk about the new Sailor Moon Crystal episodes; I’m hoping to expand more on these posts to cover more of the Moonie-verse like products, merchandise, freelance and fanart, … I am, also, putting together a sekrit project to bring more beautiful artwork ibto the site- artists I love, be prepared to hear from me soon!

Also, the new season of Doctor Who started and Old Man Geek and I were lucky enough to get tickets. We waited in line for over 5 hours and we were rewarded: we got to see Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi, Jenna Louise Coleman, and Chris Hardwick in person. It was amazing! Oh, and Old Man Geek won me an Adipose Pen, woohoo!

NYCC‘s Heroes Night and Villains Night also came and went, and they were both amazing. Let me start by saying that with only a couple of drinks during Heroes Night I left way more buzzed than I have ever been– and I won a New York Super Week card and a t-shirt… for Villains, I didn’t win anything, sadly, but I saw many friends and made so many new amazing ones that I still feel so happy and warm inside. I love events where I can be myself with all my fellow geeks. Thank you for those wonderful nights, ReedPop!

So let me see… what else has happened since. Mostly work, job-hunting, seeing my friends to keep sane… oh, I sold my first commission and my customers were so happy with it. I swear,  that brightened my life. I was so nervous the whole time I was drawing/inking/coloring, it’s why I think took me so long; but I was pleased with the way it turned out. Achievement Unlocked: Freelance Artist Ale!

I also got new artwork (which I shall expand on later, on another post): one from the amazing artist Miss Kika (Liz Lorini) and the shirt to match, and a beautiful piece and art book by the wonderful ZambiCandy. I got my first Loot Crate ever this month and it was so packed with awesomeness that it has convinced me to keep getting moaaaar! (:

I know: it is so much for just one post, but I promise I will expand more on each subject whenever I am on short breaks… you shall, all, hear about my love for my Nerdist Hoodie, how disgusted I am with all the Milo Manara cover problems that went on (not the art but people’s reactions to It), how amazing and inspiring Guardians of the Galaxy was to me, artwork and books I’m reading… everything really!

See you shortly, guys! And thanks for all the support♥
