Getting ready for Dragon*Con...... [Jul. 17th, 2009|10:06 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Got all my paperwork in by the 15th, whew! It's always a scramble, especially this year.

Matt & I are getting ready for Dragon*Con - http://www.dragoncon.org - in Atlanta (Septemer 4th - 7th this year).

Exciting news - I am of course down in the Art Show again this year as always - but this time I'll be in my own special area! Instead of being in the long rows of galleries/tables I'll actually have my own separate little "island" in the art show - my table will be in the middle of my own booth area with all my art show panels all around me. Should be a great setup, I'm very thankful!

Art show of course is again in the Hyatt Regency at the very bottom level.

So this year takes a little bit extra planning - in the past at Dragon*Con it's always been table along the wall + panels out in the middle in the gallery area, so the booth/island layout this time is a bit different. But better! You can't miss me, hehe - I'll be right there!

Matt is already working on some phenomenal frames & triptychs, etc. for the show, and I have MANY new original paintings planned. I'll also have tons of canvases, prints, figurines, jewelry, merchandise & more as usual. This should DEFINITELY be the best Dragon*Con ever, I'm excited. It's such a fun convention too, I love the hotel & love going with Matt to Trader Vic's, etc. And that Atlanta Aquarium - I love it.

Tigrillo (our little feral refugee) is eating well and using her litter box! She's even gotten out and explored the bathroom a bit, she was in the bathtub this morning, crouched low with her ears down. She keeps hiding her head behind a hanging grey towel too - I think she thinks we can't see her when she does that, lol.

I'd better get back to painting - "Rainbow Sherbet" is the new fairy painting I'm working on now! Those of you on My Facebook can watch me post in-progress shots while I paint - just check in my Mobile Uploads folder up there!

remember how Ginseng used to sit in the bathroom window and her tail would hang down and we'd say it was a giant spiders arm?

I would so love to go to Dragon Con. I love your Zazzle shoes. Zazzle is such an awesome place. I'm not the best or most well known artist in the world, but I sell stuff there quite regularly. I think it's because they offer such wonderful products that you can't find elsewhere.

oh yay!! I'm so happy with the way you & Matt are introducing your kitty to her new home!! So many people don't understand how important it is to have such a slow introduction! I love that you guys are very caring kitty parents :D

Oh my yes. She's a very wild little thing and completely terrified of every noise. It might even take a month or two before we introduce her to the rest of the house - we'll see how it goes.

I love kitties so much, I knew I had to take her! She came to us, after all (well, lived behind our waterfall in the backyard, lol).
