"con recovery"

[Piro] - 15:35:00 - [link here]

[still a little behind this week, but i've been posting a bit here and there on my fredart blog - latest blog entry is today (thursday) at around 1pm. I think i need a little widget here that links the latest fredart blog update, to supplement the mt rantage. Ok, back to work on the comic... -- piro]

I suppose there is little getting around the fact that when you take 4 solid days out of my normal schedule, delays are gonna happen, and they did with a vengeance last week. :)

Acen was a good show, and i have a writeup in progress, but... i think i'm going to switch over to working on the comic. I'd like to have that done in some semblance of a reasonable time tonight.

That said, if you took and decent pics of us or of MT related stuffs at the con, please send them to me (or better, links to them :P) The sketch above is as close as i got to the Piro and Seraphim comic i tried to do for friday. It's an amusing image, if nothing else. :P

I did want to toss out a few quick links, as they are related to Acen - as i said, i wasn't able to make it to the webcomics roundtable on saturday, and still need to find out how it went, but i'd like to quickly link two other webcomics that took part in it, just for your casual parusal.

I actually have a Ghost Girl Kimiko t-shirt that i got a year or so ago (i'm not sure how! I don't remember them giving it to me :). It's a nice shirt, actually, i still wear it :P Nice stuff, check it out. And no, this isn't Nanasawa moonlighting in another webcomic... :P (EDIT: okies, nice to see the GGK back up, and moved to new hosting. Heh, sorry about that guys :)

The other link to check to day would be for Paradigm Shift. It's a beautifully drawn comic, and a good read too. Also, I have a lot of respect for a site that has a working Character guide AND Story Synopsis :P

I did not get a chance to meet either Bob or Dirk at Acen, and that bums me out a bit - i was able to get 20 min to wander into the artist alley and that was it on Sunday. Relaxing and visiting other creators is part of the fun of going to cons... or it used to be (sniff) I sneak it in sometimes. :)

Ok, back to work on my pathetic excuse for a webcomic... :)

Oop ack!
