Black and white: Two views of the world.

In this journal you will find:
o1. Ramblings, musings and observations about people and life.
o2. The odd meme and a few youtube videos tossed in.
o3. EYECANDY WHOOO...in the form of doodles and some finished artwork.

If you would like to add me please do the following:
o1. Introduce yourself...don't be shy, I'm not prone to biting...unless you're made of chocolate or something.
o2. It's not an absolute must, but at least try to comment regularly on my entries. I'm sure you'd want the same.
o3. DO NOT REPOST THE ARTWORK! I'm not claiming to be a perfect artist, but the things I make...they're like children. One does not like having their children abducted.
o4. Same goes for locked entries. I'm a private person.
o5. Bonus points if we have something in common. Friendships usually start with common interests!

With all of that in mind, leave a little comment saying that you've added me! And if you're bored, here's my older introductory post and an outdated contact information post. Enjoy!

.HACK//Sign: Life is a road...and I wann

Well it's been two weeks, May has come and gone. Now it's time for, a very special...Livejournal Convention Report Special! In order to make this entry special, there will be links to music on youtube, rage comics and internet memes for maximum comedic and entertainment value. Before I launch head-on into this entry, I just want to extend a big thank you. Thank you for all the people here on livejournal and elsewhere that supported me in my Artist Alley aspirations over the years, thank for pointing out what things I need to improve upon art wise, what things I needed to tweak as I added the finishing touches to art that was printed(I'M LOOKING AT YOU entropyx♥!), and for all the people who were excited about me doing this. If I'm to be fair, I'd even give some of my coworkers an honorable mention in this regard. Nice people still exist...They really do!

Anime North Day 1: Friday

Now to start things off, we need to be in a relaxed mood, so pretend this is a tv show and this was playing as soon as I woke up. That faithful Friday, I was in an absolutely perfect mood...well, crazy excited but otherwise perfect! I have to admit, I was walking with a little extra swagger as my suitcase, prints and other equipment was loaded onto my mom's van. As we drove off, I hooked my iPod to the radio and just blasted every upbeat song I had(mostly video game and anime themes for effect), to keep that excited mood going. I went to AN with a work buddy of mine, a fellow named Francis, so we were feeding off of each other's excitement and mom was wondering if we really were in our 20's with the way we were going on kept reminding us to not get into..."mischief". When we finally arrived at the Marriott where we'd stay, we were seen off, I demanded a good luck hug from my mother and the promise that she'd pray for me to not make an ass of myself my success. If I remember correctly we arrived around 12-12:30ish, so we got a little lunch from a nearby Subway after dropping our bags down and unpacking a little.

Then at 2:30 we head over to the Toronto Congress Centre(where half of AN's events, the dealer's room and artist alley) since I had to check in and start setting up the table for 3. Now about walking to the congress centre, where our hotel was located is a 30 minute walk from the centre. When we actually arrive, despite wearing comfy running shoes, I was certain that my toes were bleeding if not rubbed raw! Added to that, walking with my cooler for all the water I took with me(lol water on rollback!), my money box, portfolio case for the prints, banner and all the other little doodads that I need to secure things to the table...it definitely doesn't make for an easy walk. Something I'd pay for in the following week, with a bruised nerve in my left shoulder, that I'm still healing from right now!

Around 3:15-3:30, my table partner, the lovely kinopia and we got to work on the table stand. I have a new found respect for the artists who go to multiple conventions throughout the year, setting up the bloody stand alone is a job and a half. But...I was prepared! Over the months from learning I got a table, until that faithful weekend, I bought enough supplies for setting up a table, and all those supplies were in my little tool box that got stares. Why do you ask? Well it went something like this...

Me: Can I help with anything?
Kinopia: Yeah just keep joining the pipes together and we're good 8D!
Me: Okay, let's do this!
Kinopia:...why do you have a hammer out?!?
Me: Making sure everything is secure*whack*! STAY SECURE PIPES ARJOLWDJOQAJSO AOJS A! *hammers like she's angry*

After a while though, other artist kept coming by to borrow tape, my scissors, my sharpie...I'm thinking I need to walk with extra tape and charge a small fee to use it. By the time 5 o'clock came around, when the Alley officially opened, I was all out of tape and had nothing to hammer! As people started to file in, something wonderful, magical and stupendous happened...my first print sale ever. In the two hours we had to setup before con-goers started filing in, convention staff and other artists were looking around the tables sizing up the competition and the fresh meat, and I noticed out of the corner of my eye, a few guys pointing out my stuff. Remember, all of my current print stock is video game related, and the games I chose to make fanart of, have a larger male following. Not going to lie, it was a nice little ego boost to hear people talking about how they'd come back for specific prints I had. But the actual first sale...man, when that guy came up to the table, I couldn't believe it. When he pointed out the prints he wanted, I was professional...but still couldn't believe it. When the money was handed to me...it...was...AMAZING. Like really, really, amazing! Amazing like...HOLY CRAP SOMEONE ACTUALLY BOUGHT SOMETHING I MADE!!! HELL YEAH!! The initial sales stage was clear and I felt like a million...no, a trillion, zillion, kajillion bucks. Ironically, my mother called a few minutes later to see how things were going, and I'm sure you can imagine that phone call...

Mom: How are things going, honey?
Mom: What? You sold one of your pictures?

And then we both screamed on the phone, then I heard people in the background screaming for me...my family is awesome! The rest of the afternoon was spent with me grinning from ear to ear, with shakey hands. One thing I noticed, around our row of tables, the row in front and behind me, didn't really sell much. It seems like for these 3 days or more conventions, the Friday is where people look out for their favourite artists, and keep an eye out for things they'd want to buy. Either way, I'll remember that first sale for the rest of my life...

Anime North Day 2: Saturday

My day started off at 6:15 in the morning. Why so early you ask? Well, for one I was starving hungry! By the time Francis and got back to the hotel room, it was after 11, the lobby restaurant was close, and my feet were killing me, and I was just too tired to look for an open restaurant. One the bright side...I SOLD STUFF!!!!!!! So we had instant noodles he brought with him for dinner, also courtesy of Wallyland! So that morning, being starving hungry, and having forgot to fill out the room service form for breakfast, I pulled on my dressing gown, pulled off the stocking I had on my head, to keep my hair tidy(yes, I sleep my pantyhose on my head, so sue me!), slipped on my running shoes and headed to the lobby restaurant again. No one seemed to mind that I was walking around in my pj's, it wasn't like I was walking around in anything skimpy. And these were some damn cute pj's! I learned there was the option of ordering from a menu or going for the buffet, I chose the buffet...and went to town. Asked for a two sunny-side up eggs, couple slices of toast, got two plates of sausage...8 pieces of bacon, a banana. I figure if I'm the one paying for all of this, I was going to get my moneys worth, and I was hungry! One thing most people don't know about me, is that I love, love, love, traditional breakfast foods. I'm not even kidding. If I pass by one of those all day breakfast places and I have a little money to spare...I will purposely not have breakfast just to enjoy the all you can eat stuff. So while eating half my weight in sausages and bacon, I imagined what kind of adventures I'd have today and how my mother would kill me for all the salt and remind me that I come from a family that has high blood pressure problems and the importance of smiling and selling my work and making friends!

Met up with kinopia at quarter to 10, we brought our stuff out that we hid under the table the day before and it was show time! Another thing I notice about these 3 day events, Saturday is the day people really dress up in the alley. If you weren't in cosplay, a lot of the female artists just dressed up in their best casual, semi-formal gear. Now I HAD PLANNED to do the same...I had packed my dressy skinny jeans and 3 plaid, tunic tops. Problem was, it was hot all weekend and those outfits just weren't right...did I mention how the temperature in the alley would fluctuate between being really warm, to freezing. So instead of my tunics and skinny jeans, I just work capris and a top. I definitely am going shopping for a few nice outfits to wear in alleys in future. And I'm determined to cosplay again, just that I want to get into better shape and either commission someone to make me something or coax my seamstress mother to make some kind of gothic lolita outfit or something nice...Around lunch time things really started to pick up and I got the digital camera out and took photos of any cosplayers who came buy to look at stuff. One cosplayer, dressed as Franken Fran and I got into a nice, little chat. Then, she asks me to draw something in her sketchbook, saying she likes to collect drawings from the artist alley people. So, I calmly say, alright, I'll do it! Not sure what exactly, she'd like me to draw, I ask her if Fran is okay and she was so happy for that. She pulled out her cell that had Fran as I wallpaper and I went to work. 20 minutes later, she gets a chibi Fran, asks me to sign it, which just made me feel so professional, and the swag...it just turned on! Humble swag...mind you! The hours marched on with trips to the bathroom, walking around to stretch the legs, then the sales got slow...like really, really slow. I was wondering, what happenend? Why aren't people buying my stuff? Is my art...that bad? Am I going to be the only one who only a couple prints? Despite having all these questions keep turning over in my head, I kept a straight face, pulled out my sketchbook and started to draw. And people came back! So I then, out comes miss iPad, open up my youtube channel, play a couple colouring process videos and bingo! I don't know about you guys, but it seems like people, really like collecting business cards. I don't know if it's because they saw me drawing, or the videos, but one of those two things, or both of them, made people take a card...some took two of ours at a time. One person, felt moved to take six cards. It was a good thing that I had 500 of them made for this!

Afternoon comes along and I'm really starting to worry about my lack of print sales, and starting to think I should have made little trinkets or offered to do on the spot commissions. It's funny how things just fall into your lap sometimes...this asian dude comes up to the table and he's eyeing my work, and Kinopia's pokemon art, she happened to be busy drawing chibis for someone. He looks up at me and yells "DRAW ME 8D!!". Now livejournal, I'm not a fast sketch artist in situations like this. I have to plan out what it is I'm going to do and nine times out of ten, a rough idea of an image forms in my head, and I try and draw it out. But this...this...was new. I tried to talk the guy into letting me take something home, let me lovingly ink it digitally or traditionally, go all out with my digital painting and make something pretty. After all, colouring is my strong suit, as I've been told. But he wasn't having it, and I was having, reservations as it were. A few people around me just said go for it and so I did it because people told me to ahhhh! So I slipped on the ol' smudgeguard, whipped out the electric eraser and bam! Started drawing like a madwoman! I was really worried though, about the anatomy, not making the sketch all polished like I usually try to do, but when I actually showed it to him, he was so happy. Seems like I had nothing to worry about! Don'tcha just love it when things turn out nicely like that? I sure do! From that experience, I've learned that I need to make myself available for comissions somehow! Most enjoyable ten dollars I've made! Saturday night ended with a lovely fettuccine alfredo pasta, with shrimp and garlic bread, taking in the Really Lame Anime panel, and finally finding and hanging out with labcoat and her friends for an hour and a bit before finally going to bed. Good times!

Anime North Day 3: Sunday

Another hearty breakfast! This time...WAFFLES!!!! They were these, itty, bitty ones where you have to eat a couple to feel full. So I got a couple of those, lots of syrup and butter, bit of scrambled eggs, sausages and FRUIT. It's important to eat healthy and not a total glutton, and have a warm cup of tea. That Sunday, I was hell bent on not walking all the way down to the alley! I just wasn't going to kill my feet again! Satuday, I tried going on one of the shuttle buses that takes you to and from the congress centre, only to learn, from a somewhat rude bus driver that only convention staff can use the shuttles. I have a mind to email them and ask if that's true or if this guy was just being an ass. I sure hope it's the former...So Francis and I waited for the bus and saved our bodies from melting in the sun. Unfortunately, the ice in my cooler melted so it looked like someone peed in the seat. And as I'd walk, there was a trail of water. Nice impression to leave my fellow artists with...but I assure you, I HAVE NO BLADDER ISSUES! I was potty trained by a very capable nurse, who happens to be my mother, so there :P!

Another slow day sales wise, and no one asked me to draw them or draw in their sketchbook! Poopy! So I took more photos, played videos on the iPad, and gave out a lot of business cards for some reason. I guess it's good that people like the design and how glossy it is. Made another sale and then labcoat came by, and gave my 11x17" Etna print a good home. Having done that, I had to give her the friend discout ;D! Yes ladies and gentlemen, discounts exist if you know where to find them. Things were pretty quiet in the alley, as quiet as they can be with thousands of people coming and going. A few of my favourites on dA came by and asked how things are going the day before, so I returned the favour. Bought an artbook, a print, complimented people on their outfits and did the whole networking thing. I thought there rest of the day would remain quiet, until...


Now, my mom and older sister said they wanted to go to this, but I never took them seriously on it. For one, neither are into games or anime. Mom keeps calling anime art "those 'chinese' characters Leah draws' and I think my sister's exposure to it, would be whatever my nephews and niece watch at home. But there they were, with my little niece...and I hid under the table. Actually, I didn't hide, I was just really surprised. As for my niece, well she's going around telling people about her aunt who is a amazingly famous 'cartoonist' XD. Feeling generous, I gave her a print(d'awwwwwwwwww!), and now, I have to give my nephews prints or they'll be jealous LOL! After a while, I marked down the prices of everything and only managed to get a bunch of looky-loos and people who collected cards. Got up, stretched my legs, tried to buy a hotdog but they were out, so I was a sad panda bear...but my family got my Swiss Chalet haaaaaay! As things wound down, I went around, introduced myself and exchanged business cards. I even traded or gave out a few prints to a couple people. When the alley finally closed, I gave kinopia a huge hug and said we need to do this again next year. And next year I'll have more stuff to sell and I just might do commissions on the spot!


o1. I would have liked to have sold more than I did, but the fact that I did it is just as important. Actually, money wise, I made about the equivalent of a week at Wallyland in 3 days. Further proving how deplorable that place really is!
o2. Met some awesome people, including deviantart's shilin, my table partner kinopia, ka-ho, ikeda and chowdown among others!
o3. I'm so inspired to draw any improve like you wouldn't believe!
o4. I can safely say I have a lot of support with this art thing now.
o5. There are a lot of people who want to buy prints from me o____o!

So what happens now...?

Well seeing how buttons and other small trinkets seem to be what people are gravitating towards, I went down town and got a button maker with my AA money. I have a list of things to make buttons out of on my iPad but if you have any suggestions and ideas, PLEASE post them here! Also as suggested by entropyx, I'm going to try making a little comic, perhaps about my experiences at work or with retail in general! Also, I have another convention to prepare for in September, so I better get to work! Would I ever go to a big convention artist alley again? Ya damn right I will! But I have to make revisions to how I transport my art and equipment(I've actually bought one of those hand truck/cart things), how the art is presented, how I dress and other things, but yes, I want to do this again. I need to do this again...if this could be a new tradition for convention season, outside of just taking in panels, I totally want to do it. Am I happy I did it? I SURE AM! I guess it's true, if you put in the effort, and believe you can do it. Great things will happen. So long as you...believe!

PHOTO TIEM!!Collapse )

Here's hoping to AN 2013 artist alley!
23rd-May-2012 07:38 pm - ANIME NORTH 2012
Blue Badger: SOON

Hello livejournalers! Or perhaps I should say, people of tumblr who are taking a break from reblogging! Either way, I hope everyone is doing well. For me, it's a a little under 48 hours until Anime North commences once again, for the 2012 convention season. I present to you the 10 pieces of fanart that I've plugged away at for a year and a half. I'm all packed up, and today I got my eyebrows, hair and nails done...so my body is ready(my mind is getting there too, I'll feel more like this is it when I see the convention centre).

No convention announcement would be complete without a table map. For me, I'll be seated at table E06, so for any of you going this weekend, please stop by, I've got lots of prints and might try take home commissions! I'll be posting photos of my facebook and my fanpage for my art and also my new instagram. So stay tuned and hope to meet some new faces in the alley!
Utena: Lost innocence.
...Perhaps I should have made a new year's resolution to update this thing more yes? Anywhoo, when last I updated, it was early January and I listed out my plans for the year, especially the art related ones. Now here we are, days away from the beginning of March. March is somewhat important for me, amateur artists in and around Toronto and ones outside of Toronto, who can travel here, with little to no problems. What am I referring to? Early March is traditionally the time that Anime North opens it's Artist Alley(known as the Comic Market) registration. And the day for that registration opening is this Friday. I'm sure you all know what I'm going to say next right? Wish me luck, pray for me, invoke any supernatural forces that will work in my favor. Just use the power of positive thinking and let's hope it all works out. I won't pretend that I'm not nervous about this, after all I'm essentially competing with 2000 or more applicants for one of 100 tables, but somehow I don't feel as nervous. Maybe it's how I went about preparing for this event, or the fact that I've been steadily churning out and sitting on completed artwork, I just feel a little more prepared. One thing I did differently, just like I said I would in my con report, I ended up writing a little email to one of the Comic Market directors. Rather nice lady actually, and she wished me good luck with my application this year. So maybe...just maybe she might remember my email address and the fact that I've asked. From mid December to the tail end of January, I'd pop onto AN's site on my iPhone, iPad, laptop, pc or anything that could load the site properly to list the Artist Alley registration day. The closer it was to February, the more frequently I'd check. Obsessive I know, but I wanted to be prepared! And when the day was finally announced, with the wonderful world of Google Calendar and syncing to my iDevices, I have an alarm set to go off at the moment my email is supposed to be sent. Don't get me started on how much I use Google Calendar now a days...

Going along with the whole inquiring about how the registration process goes through, I've even gone so far as to ask other, more experienced artists about their experiences, especially if any of them have had tried applying and failed more than once. I guess it should be no surprise but I'm not the only one who has had hopes of appearing in the alley, only to not even land a waiting list spot(I heard a story for one lady who makes prints and handicrafts who hasn't been able to get in for a while). Like me, most of the artists had concerns about how artists are selected and weren't thrilled with the whole lottery, most importantly everyone was really encouraging and hoped we'd all meet each other during that upcoming May weekend, and I hope we do.

Then there's my registration email...I've had this ready for a good, long while. I have all the documents pertaining to my ticket purchase, artwork samples, the whole 9 yards. About two weeks ago a Comic Market FAQ was posted on AN's forums and I made sure to find myself on that thread, armed with questions. As end end result, I ended up re-writing my email a couple of times and it wouldn't surprise me if I end up rewriting it a few more times before Friday...

Lastly, there's something to be said about confidence and being positive. With that in mind I've told a couple of people outside of Livejournal land about this project. Before only my mother knew and I sort of mentioned it to my dad and stepfather. Then I told my older sister and her reaction was to literally tell me that it was about time I did something for money with my drawings, and wanted a print. Then next thing I know, mom tells my aunt who was visiting from England(and of course auntie wanted a little something), then my grandmother...next thing I know, my supervisor at work is talking to me about conventions and she wanted to see what I do, and she ended up showing her son because he likes anime and I was all shy and telling her to stop complimenting me! Are any of you guys really secretive about drawing with people who don't draw? Finally, I posted about it on my sketchblog. I figure, why not? I've put in a lot of time preparing for this, even if I don't get a table at AN this year, there is another con I could go to and there's other conventions in 2013. Might as well be proud!

In the end, I'd really like all this work to pay off...

Here"s what I"ve been up to...Collapse )

Here's hoping Friday turns out well!
3rd-Jan-2012 08:41 pm - 2012: My plans.
Edgeworth: Pint sized hero!
Whelp! It's been three days into 2012 and I have been thinking and reflecting on the year that just came to an end. It's been a pretty good year for the most part and I'm looking toward this new year as a chance to try out new things and continue doing the stuff that's working. One thing I really hoped to accomplish towards Christmas time, was that I would have finally been able to leave Walmart. Though I didn't accomplish that as I wanted to(especially with stores only hiring for the Holiday's while hospitals/labs having hiring freezes), I'm...actually not depressed about it despite what was going on for nearly 6 months! I'll keep tying to look for something else though, I'm hell bent especially if that Mayan calendar stuff is right! to move on and do better things professionally and personally! You know how I've mentioned a couple of times that I do volunteer work at this hospital? Well I can't go into a lot of detail without locking this entry, but what I can say is, for 2 years now I've been a research assistant and I love it. Apparently the doctor I work with loves things to because, she's been dropping hints for a while about applying for a job there, saying if she had her way, she'd hire me to work with the other undergrads that assist her in writing research papers and conducting research for the papers, or that she'd pull a few strings to see me hired by someone. Sadly, as with other places this hospital has a hiring freeze going on and because of unions it would be difficult to hire someone who's off the street but it's something. So with that, I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

On the art front, I can see improvements were made in 2012. I'm not getting stuck with anatomy as much when it comes to sketching things. Actually, I find myself visiting anatomy reference sites more, putting in the extra time to make sure things look right and make more anatomical "sense". As a result, when it comes to the digital inking stage with Paint Tool Sai, I've found myself going back and fixing my sketches, and with traditional inking, I'll sit there with my electric eraser and look over stuff before I bring out my pens. Bottom line: Leah is more careful with her anatomy. As for colouring, I've learned a few new things thanks to artists streaming their work or me just experimenting with stuff and it's had good results...I think! So let's take a look at the end results of my efforts shall we?

The Art of 2011!Collapse )

And now for the important part, my plans for 2012! I'm hesitant to say "resulutions" because some of these you can't exactly complete in a year!

My 2012 Plans!


o1.A little while ago, I had an epiphany...I want to make this art thing some kind of side career! Now this is something I've thought about for a very, very long time, but I've always thought you had to be one of those crazy talented, super young, insanely popular people on deviantArt/online to be taken seriously when you say, "I want an art career."..But with age, experience and being exposed to different art styles, I've learned otherwise. So with that in mind, outside of the usual anatomy improvement/style development/I need to get my name out there. I have one idea that I plan to put into action once picture number 9 is coloured or all of them are finished. An idea that could make me a little money while I'm at it, I'm sure you all can guess what it is. If not...it's taking commissions! But any other ideas or suggestions on this one are welcome!

o2. I'm going to make an effort to be a little more prolific this year, or at least produce enough new art to fill one of those "year in art" memes!

o3. Buy better art supplies! Livejournal, I have a confession to make...maybe because I'm a mostly digital artist, and can make things "prettier" in photoshop, but I own some really crappy pencils, erasers and other stuff that I've been sketching with for a while. A good chunk of my time is spent darkening my sketches so that I can actually ink them and I know things would be a little easier if I worked with darker pencils but I'm a bad procrastinator who can't find the "time" to look for 2B mechanical pencils :D!. Luckily my birthday and payday are within days of each other, so as a gift to myself, I'm doing a little shopping on dickblick, jetpens and stationeryart.

o4. Break out of my habit of drawing on printer paper! Okay from the time I started making little doodles with my crayola markers as a little kid until now, I've mostly drawn on printer paper. I've tried doing the traditional sketchbook thing, the first two sketchbooks I've used are sitting in my box o' art supplies, not even halfway used, because they're big, cumbersome and their pages are crappy and stiff. A word of advice...do not buy sketchbooks from Staples! Fast forward to 2010, I went on this shopping spree for sketchbooks! I've been wanting to use those sketchbooks and they're smaller than the sketchbooks that I tossed away. So I decide to lay one out on top of my scanner, thinking it's about the same size as a sheet of printer paper(which is around 8x11"). WRONG! My sketch books are 9x12" which is bigger than the scanning bed! I've tried looking for 9x12 scanners with no luck so far, and I really don't want to chuck out these sketchbooks...any ideas? Either I use these or bust out my sheets of cardstock and sketch on those, but I wanted to save the cardstock for something.

o5. I want to make a comic! Hence me saving my cardstock!

o6. Finish my website update!

o7. Maybe actually draw anthro art and post it on furaffinity...?


Finish my backlog of ps2/ps3 games! And also I've going to dive into the world of steam games.


o1. GO OUT MOAR AND BE SOCIAL DAMMIT! With that in mind zylice, YOU, ME, UMMM...How about some cake 8D?

o2. My mother thinks I need to smile more....perhaps she is right. Even charicatures of myself, do not smile, especially in relation to where I work!

o3. I want to join a gym or rejoin the gym I left...but I can't afford it! But I do have a couple barbells at home, I will get my epically flat tummy for summer!

o4. Get my driver's license! You know what? I want my own ride! I want a corvette! And I think, if I get a license, it might make a good bargaining chip in getting said corvette for a birthday and/or Christmas..."Mom, dad, I have my G2, I am an upwardly mobile, ambitious, young, caribbean Canadian, of mixed afro-asian decent...AH DOES NEED DEH CORVETTE LIKE YUH DOES NEED DEH WATER AN PLENTY, PLENTY FOOD! OH GOD NUH WHY YUH LAGHING?"(protip: my impression of native Trinidadian speakers does cause plenty laughs)

o5. Lastly, one thing I'd like to do, but hope it isn't seen as arrogant. I would be tickled pink if I could print, frame and hang some of my artwork. Over the years I've seen and heard of a few artists doing this and thought it was cool. Heck, my older sister ran off with asked for one of my prints...because it matched the colour scheme of a nephew's bedroom XP.

That's about it for me, what do you hope to accomplish this year or in the near future!
