Arisia is over

First, the art show report:
Ok, so I didn't sell that much, but I didn't do half bad either. I sold one copy of each of the four prints I had there, plus at the last minute I sold Dryad to none other than Andrew Looney!

But best of all: Gaia won the Judges Choice Award!!!</a>

And then there were the games: Star Munchkin, lots and lots of Volcano (made it to the next-to-last round in the tournament), MEGA Volcano (MEGA Volcano! MEGA Volcano!), and Pikeman (another Icehouse game). I bought two more Icehouse stashes so I can finally addict people on my coast to Volcano as well.

And the panels: as usual, far more looked interesting on the schedule than I actually made it to, but I did make it to the two polyamory panels and a discussion of printmaking for digital art, which were all quite interesting. I did *not* go to the Livejournal panel, though LJ was mentioned in both the poly panels and at least one person had [username]@livejournal on her name tag.

And speaking of Livejournal, the obligatory people-I-saw list (in no particular order): tikva, pancua, wyndam, fraterrisus, ubiquity, wandelrust, the_gwenzilliad, pixel, plymouth, eustaciavye, antimony, dphilli1, ts52, awfief, mycroft, jadasc, and anyone else I forgot. And the Loonies. And Zarf.

And, of course, the stuff I didn't buy: leather arm-dragon ($75), braided-silver tiara ($20), lunch money t-shirt ($20), perky goth t-shirt ($20), Kids For Cthulhu! Tentacle-lickin' good! t-shirt ($20), leather Bast mask ($180), and more gorgeous artwork than I could fit if I were to wallpaper the Pentagon with it ($[something ridiculous]). Including the not-for-sale cover painting for Samurai Cat (!!).

And the things that didn't fit into any of the above categories: Pop-Tarts, drum/dance circle, lots of silly ribbons, my dragon wings (which came off pretty well - didn't enter the Masquerade, but a number of people told me I should have done so :), six people sleeping in two twin cots and a queen-size bed, baby-sucking toilets, scary elevators.

And finally, a few choice buttons, ribbons, and quotes from the weekend:
-Cats are poetry in motion. Dogs are pure gibberish on speed.
-Bisexual, proud, and queer of it.
-Vanilla. Monogamous. Sorry.
-Bisexual poly switch: I'm not indecisive, I'm greedy!
-"I'll just lay it out there and see what I attract." --fraterrisus, referring to a "game", he says. uh-huh. sure.

Hmmm, leather arm-dragon? I wonder if this meant Meredith the Maskmaker was there, or if someone else is also making them. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the latter - they're very fun to wear. I have a leather arm-griffin of hers. She also has headbands, belts, masks, earrings, pins, and small dragon heads for keychains. Very pretty.

at the last minute I sold Dryad to none other than Andrew Looney!

That's awesome! One might even say MEGA Awesome! Ask him for a testamonial. :->

And congrats on Gaia. I always thought that was one of your better pieces.

It was really great to see you! Next time I'll purposely refrain from posting at least one interesting thing on LJ so I have something to surprise you with!
