Wow… Its been 6 months since I made a post. That’s, well lets be blunt, embarrassing.
Well Gearskull Studios is back and better than ever. Still on a teaching high from Artfest (Ill get in to that later) I’ve started several exciting things that should come to fruition soon. So, like a newly repainted billboard, watch this space. Exciting things should be happening soon.
Artfest. What can I say about Artfest other than it was simply amazing. I was well received by my students and every one of the finished their projects. Not an easy feat if you are new to working with metal and leather and then turning them in to a book. I’m proud of all of them and will have some pictures their work up soon. That being said, I have a message for my students: I forgot to take pictures of all your journals. I caught some of them at the show and tell but I would like to have a record of my students work. If you could please send me an email with a picture of the journal that you made in my class that would be amazing. I think my email is listed somewhere on here but in case it isn’t its gearskull at gmail dot com. Thanks again.
In other news, Teesha and Tracy have put me in charge of First Thursday at the Artfest Annex. Its gonna be an amazing time. I’m still working everything out for Thursday next week. If your in the Seattle area, you should come by the Artfest Annex at 89 Yesler Way in Pioneer Square. Like I said, Its gonna be a fun time.
It’s been a long winding road the past 6 months, with much, much more to come.
As time flies by while I try and split mine it about nine different ways, I feel like I’ve been super neglectful of my online presence here at the blogity blog homefront. I’ve said it before, but I do actually mean it this time, I’m going to update way more. I keep wanting to do these grand updates, full of prose and pictures and ideas and whatnot. After hearing that this is why I don’t update more often, Trista told me I was being dumb and that short updates are kinda where its at; as to keep people informed. Then when I have time, or something grand to say, then make a big post. Well, I fought that idea for a long time and I was wrong. She was right. I’m sure that’s not the first time and it’s sure to not be the last.
So yeah short updates. Ive been working my butt off, literally AND figuratively, to get everything ready for Steamcon. I’m super excited and really looking forward to seeing what my cohorts in Artists Alley are going to have. I scoped out their sites but I’m sure it will be much different seeing their stuff in person. I really need to get a costume together and may need to call in some outside help. So yeah. Things are awesome and I’m really looking forward to Steamcon and then Journalfest right after it.
