I'm still desperately looking for a ride to DragonCon, if anyone is passing through the KY or TN area. I am compact and travel light, and would be eternally grateful to anyone who could maybe help!
Check it out!

. That kind of boggles my mind, because her stuff is awesome. o__o Go give her money!
I'm close to being done with Artslam
; I can't believe how quickly the summer has gone by!
because I'm a horrible masochist
I'm diving right from one project into another. I'll be participating in the Sketchbook Project
this year! I tried doing it last year, but didn't complete it for two reasons: 1. The moleskines got sent out really late, and 2. I just couldn't get into the randomly assigned topic I had. This year, however, you can choose your own topic from a list, and I picked "Adhere to Me". The funny thing is that I didn't even realize why the phrase appealed to me so much until later, when I was writing down some ideas. "Adhere to me" is a line from The Decemberists' song, Red Right Ankle
, and since they're maybe my favorite band ever, well - clearly I was subliminally influenced by their awesome.
I'll be traveling at the end of the month! I'm apparently very weird in that I love air travel, especially when I'm by myself. I adore being completely anonymous and having so many opportunities to people-watch, and flying in planes is super fun! I never had the chance to do it until I was like, 22, when we moved to Japan (that was a hell of a first flight, let me tell you
), but as long as the flight is less than 4 or 5 hours, I'm a happy camper! Aaaaanyway. I'm leaving on August 23 to visit my mom and step dad in Pennsylvania, then my mom and I are going to drive over to southern New York for my grandpa's (paternal side) memorial. Then we'll be driving to Upstate NY (represent!) to visit my Gram (maternal side) and other relatives on that side of the family. I haven't seen any of them since Nick and I moved back from Japan three years ago, so it should be... interesting. I'll be flying back on September 1.
So much work to do before then!!! D8
