I apologize for my lack of show updates, this month has been a whirlwind (to put it lightly). The first part of the month my parents were out of town and I was on kitty & plant duty, then I went right into show prep.
So here are all of those updates rolled into one entry!
ChicagolandZ [ June 12 & 13, 2010 ]
This was my first time in the new location, despite the low sales I had a good time. I met Mike Holman, Heather Price & Cherokee Hall, such a fun group. And it’s always a pleasure to be seated next to Scott Beaderstadt. MANY kudo’s to Jimmy Decker for putting so much effort into this show and making sure that the guests were taken care of.
Geneseo Music & Craft Festival [ June 19-20, 2010 ]
First the drive out to my in-laws was… frightening… there was so much rain and it was coming down so hard that I began thinking it was a bad idea to leave the night before, but we made it there in one piece. (in the video I asked my husband to slow down… that grinding you heard was our traction control kicking in because we were hydroplaning… I was getting really scared.)
I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures on Saturday, people were lining up before I was done setting up.
For the first time in 4 years we didn’t get a single drop of rain… I was ecstatic. Perfect weather even though the forecast called for an 80% chance of rain on Sunday, which never happened.
It was great seeing and chatting with all of my regulars, and it was a pleasure meeting the new customers as well.
Cyphan [ June 25-27, 2010 ]
This was Cyphan’s Year ONE show, I had a pretty good time, I was next to Bob Stevlic and chatted with Jeffery (Kitty Zombie). I really believe next year will be HUGE, Chicago really does need it’s on brand of SciFi/Fantasy Convention. And hopefully there will be some official Kitty Zombie artwork in the near future. *wink*
Not many pictures, but I did get to shoot a little movie before my batteries died.
I had to slow the footage of the robots down by half because it was way to jerky if I hadn’t.
Sadly I never got over to see Nicki Clyne and Jewel Staite, but I did get to see Svengoolie (he was signing in our room), after his signing he walked around our room, he stopped to gander at my artwork, I was pleased. ^_^
A HUGE Congrats & THANKS goes out to Mike for all of his hard work on making this show happen.
In other news, I will be at Chicagoland Entertainment Collectors Expo Sept 9th-12th. Though because of my husbands job most likely I’ll just be there Saturday & Sunday. I will be donating 5 original sketch cards to The Pediatric Oncology Treasure chest Foundation, plus I’ll be donating an original Small painting for his Saturday Auction/Raffle.
Lots of stuff to catch up on… need to put the show stuff away, and get to work. ❤
