SquatchCon is Port Angeles's very first comicon. This is me with my Ka-Blam tshirt and some of the first cosplayers to show up, on Thursday. Ka-blam is the best print on demand company, especially for floppy comics, with almost 80's prices!
This is what the organizers say: “So weirdly enough, we're going to be looking for another venue for Squatchcon after all. Between the outdoor issues and hallway crowding, the building owner felt that it was literally too successful for our space. Stay tuned!”
Next year, the convention plans to split into two simultaneous events, SquatchCon, and NerdCon. Who plan to have bowling leagues and a playoff during the convention.
You gotta attend in 2023.
That first night, we had Drink and Draw at Bob's Studio.
|I was able to give this one to the cosplayer. He loved it.|
This post will be updated as scheduling comes in.
Will Emerald City Comicon 2021 - December 2-5 - happen? Do we know? Since we can't, I got me a 4-day pro badge anyway. They're not expensive, so Just In Case works.
I'll be in Seattle for four days - Thursday afternoon, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The first two days, I'm staying away from the convention, because, you know, COVID. So Thursday and Friday, if you don't do the convention, we can say hi in person! I'll be organizing meet-ups, parties, and listing events, whether they're part of ECCC or no. I go home Monday morning.
If you have any event you'd like me to attend, or a dinner, or a party, let's list it here, so I can get really organized.
See you in December! OOH, Christmas decorations.
|Jim, Yellow Bear, and |
Teeny Puppy. Buried with him.
His name was Jim.
He was already a full-grown cat when we got him, so in 2021, he was at least 20.
BUT - his weight was good, and he was happy.
True, his pupils didn't expand or shrink at the same time or rate, and at night he wandered the house yelling, with a stuffed toy named Yellow Bear in his mouth, all of which signaled dementia. Well, I don't know if Yellow Bear was part of that, but he participated.Jim had some kind of large mass in his belly - possibly in his spleen or liver - but he was too old to have an operation, and the vet didn't think she could reach it anyway.
He loved to sleep under his red light by the stove.
We kept him home until he passes away, very quietly, lying on comforters next to the stove.
Till the last hours, when he called for us, we were there for him. He even purred.
In our house, we have a saying: "I want to come back as one of my cats."
We should all end up so good.
This is getting odd. It's one thing to see story ideas or characters that resemble each other, because there's been a lot of genre-borrowing over the centuries.
And then there's some very specific stuff that is so oddly the same you start to wonder.
My comics, The Desert Peach, and Stinz, have had a world-wide audience for years. I'm beginning to wonder if other creatives who know my work - especially writers in much more recent film and animation - are throwing little Easter Eggs to me. I would be so delighted if they were.
I can't prove this. Just take a look and think about it.
ZOOTOPIA: There are a bunch of stupid wolves guarding the secret project. In Stinz, there are a bunch of bachelor wolves my fans call The Stupid Wolves. They even look somewhat like the ones in Zootopia - and they're about as bright.
I run 1-hour Zoom meet-ups, mostly for learning music, having a drink with friends to loosen up, just having fun.
I may occasionally run other sorts of art-related Zooms.
Nothing fancy, no pressure. Show off or ask for advice. Questions welcome.
