Jungle Hot
Have I ever mentioned how much I hate the heat? Makes my hair frizz, makes me sweat, and it's hard to draw or do needlework when your hands are sweaty. Yup, that's right, I said draw. I've been doing a little drawing, mostly designing stuff for new needlework pieces, but my hands keep sticking to the paper... makes it difficult. I usually trace designs from my books -- I have some Celtic dogs I'm drawing right now -- but I drew a wyvern earlier freehand, looking at a picture in one of the books. Came out really nice, if I do say so myself.

Anthrocon went really well. Wolfie and I went down to Philly last weekend for the biggest East Coast furry convention, and we both displayed artwork in the Art Show. Wolfie sold nine of the twenty pieces he brought with him (ten general, ten mature audience), and I sold my "Winged Lion of St. Mark" for a nice bit. I also got Honorable Mention in the Art Show, which means that while I didn't get many bids, people did notice my work. I think that means more to me than the sale.

I put up the website for my embroidery last night; it can be viewed at http://ursamajor.8m.com. It has examples of my embroidery, including the lion... the scan came out really nice.

Wolfie drew me a lovely Chinese dragon that I'll be doing for Furcon. That's a West Coast furry convention, held in January in San Mateo, California. Ought to be interesting; never been to Northern California, and all I saw in Southern California is desert and mountains. Wonder if there's an In-N-Out Burger up that way? They make the best burgers, fries, and shakes... mmm mmm mmm!

Ooh, I just looked... there's one in San Francisco! One thing I learned about cons... you can forget to eat. Forgetting to eat is bad, mm-kay? Dunno about you, but it gives me really evil headaches that take hours to subside.

Things are going good. I'm happy.

Except for the heat.
