Oct 5, 2015


Long time no post! I can't believe it's already October?! I mean the year is almost done. Where did the time go? We have finally some-what settled into our new place. There are still about 10 (or so) boxes that still need unpacking but I have my computer set up. And that's all the really matters! I should be back to blogging at least once or twice a week.

I decided to participate in InkTober. Mainly because I had realized that I haven't drawn, sketched or painted anything in weeks.... or more like, months! If you don't know what InkTober is, it's where you do a drawing (an inked drawing) every day for the month of October. Every year I forget about InkTober until it's almost half way through the month and then I'm too lazy to do anything about it. But not this year! I'm posting my daily Inks on my Instagram (Justin is also participating. You can check out his drawings here.)

In other news, we are leaving very soon for a week long trip, (Our first time in Jamaica!) so I don't know if there will be Wi-Fi there. If there is I will try to keep posting. If not, I will be flooding peoples feeds with a weeks worth of doodles when I return.

Below are my favourite sketches I've done so far.
I loved how this one turned out. I was using Justin's fancy markers. He doesn't have a brown fancy marker, so I couldn't colour in the stem of the pumpkin. It's kinda bothering me... but whatcha gonna do?
Totally inspired by Sailor Moon. (as usual) I just wanted to draw something with a 'light source.'

Is anyone else participating in InkTober?

Fan Expo 2015

Normally I have a big long post (full of pictures) about Fan Expo a few days afterwards but If you've been around lately you'll know that we moved into our new place 2 days before Fan Expo this year. So it was crazy! The move itself went well. We hired movers (which I have never done before) but they were such a big help and the whole thing was less stressful because of them. Then Justin's Mom and Sister showed up the next day, we were barely unpacked but we made it work.

My cameras are all over the place and most of them packed up still. So I didn't vlog and I didn't go around taking cosplay pictures. Actually, I barely did anything this year... after ComiCon I felt kind of burnt out from all the conventions. I usually feel excited about Fan Expo but this time, I just wasn't feeling it. So I decided to let Justin have the whole table this year. I didn't take any time off, so I only came to help out after work. On the weekend I showed up a couple hours after the show had started. I spent most of our first 2 weeks unpacking and trying to get stuff organized. There is still a lot to do but it is looking a lot better now.
 Justin decided to do a raffle for on of his paintings this year. You might have seen me posting about it, here and there. The raffle went well and he hopes to do another one next year. The convention over all was good. Not our best year but still profitable. It was the first time they set up the expo during a long weekend. I feel like the big vendors didn't do too well because of that but Artist Alley seemed to have always been busy.
The one thing I really enjoyed at Fan Expo this year was getting to try out Cuphead. It is so freaking cute! I can't wait to own it and play it every day. I love everything about it.

P.S. Still some unpacking to do. I had to order a new desk (because my old one is too big) So right now I am not set up. Hopefully I will be up and running in about a week. For sure, I'll be posting somewhat regularly by October. I miss blogging!

Fire Hooping + Moving & Other Stuff

Long time no post! I feel like it's been forever since I posted something on here. I've just been so busy these last few weeks. My Grandma is visiting from Poland for a couple of weeks. (Look how cute she is.) I quietly celebrated my 27th birthday. I fire hooped for the first time ever. (Little video here and here.) I started stretching my ears and we found our next apartment!!
I feel like there is something going on every weekend. And every other weekend I take the bus home to hang out with my Grandma + family. It's starting to feel too 'busy' for me but I can't really complain because there are months in the winter time when nothing happens and I'm so bored!! ha.

Anyways, fire hooping was awesome! I knew about it last year but I wasn't too confident in my hooping abilities then... I'm still not the best hooper but I can at least keep the hoop up! If you're into hooping at all. I totally suggest you try fire hooping. It is really fun and after you get to say you fire hooped! Not many people can say that. I really want to go again but I think I may be too busy to go. We shall see...
For apartment news, we found a cute place really close to work. We like where we live now but the building is starting to fall apart (like nails coming out of the floor, cracks showing up in our walls and barely any water pressure!!) and worst of all...we haven't had an actual landlord in about 4 months!

So we started looking and we found a place we really love. It's be smaller than our current place but there are so many positives. Like; It's a new building, huge windows so it's super bright, the kitchen has an island, laundry in unit (I'm too excited about this part), Dishwasher, I'll be able to walk to work, I'll be able to walk home for lunch! We are super excited! We move in September. A few days before Fan Expo, so it's going to be a crazy week for us. If you don't see me posting in September it's because I'm unpacking.
Also, Tania and I are going to Wayhome this weekend! I'm excited because I've never been to a real concert or any sort of music fest. They are advertising it like it's going to be very hipster-y/hippy. Think... sitting on a blanket with your friends, all wearing flower crowns, smiling, laughing, all wearing clothes from urban outfitters. But I have a feeling it's going to be very dirty and smelly. I'm picturing garbage everywhere. Over-priced food and water. Huge line ups to use a gross port-a-potty. The hand washing stations running out of soap! NO!

And on top of that Tania and I will be camping there for 3 days, 2 nights with no showers! That's right. No. Showers. They are charging for a shower pass that you can only use once a day. We decided we'll just 'manage' and save some money. Haha. I'm assuming lots of people will be doing the same and if I'm wrong... then they better stay clear of us!! :P
