Countdown to rewrite: 8 days
Finally... the CONduit people posted the dealer's room list at the end of last week, and we're on it. And we're pretty much set. We've got Jaron's business cards, copies of Villages, Game Crafter stuff, Nikki's book previews... and my art prints.
It took us about three hours at the print shop to get them all, because there was only one person working, tons of customers, only one functional color printer, and tons of pictures to go through.
We had fun, though. Just seeing these in print form makes me so happy I could almost cry. Plus the guy who was working there was super nice, really impressed with the Zelda fan art, and promised to buy one if there are any left after CONduit is over. :) I kinda feel like just giving him one for free--he was so patient with my indecision over how many to make and what paper to print on and what size to make them... and let me stay to cut out the 5x5" prints after the store actually closed. People like that make my day.
Well, anyway, now that getting those printed is out of the way, I'm not stressed about this any more, just excited. It's usually a subtle thing for me; no jumping around or screaming at the top of my lungs... but I'm ready to meet people, attend panels, play some games, talk geek, and maybe buy some cool stuff.
I've got all sorts of new art to show off. I said before I made a few specifically for the con, as well as the girl in the middle of the pic above, which is actually concept art for a children's book! I also helped Nikki redesign a symbol for her book Harbinger, and the cover looks totally amazing. This has already been an incredibly productive year for me... CONduit starts tomorrow, and then there's only a few days left until freedom from work allows me to rewrite Tsirash to my heart's content.
Yay! :D I hope to see you soon!
