I leave for Archon / NASFIC / TuckerCon in about an hour, if I can get it all packed and if it will all fit in the car and leave enough room for my passenger dragonet2.
I’m packing lots more stuff this year. Original watercolors to hang in the artshow, prints of them for the print shop, a supply of my older prints for my artist alley table, a supply of bookmarks and magnets to sell at the table, and the big honkin’ wooden box that houses my table-top display. And a friend’s box of art I’m delivering to the show. And dragonet2. And my suitcase! Can’t forget my suitcase!
Here’s my programming schedule for the weekend. I probably won’t make the 11 pm one because I need to be at the Yard Dog and KC 2009 World Con Bid parties. (Which one gets the evil twin and which one gets me… Hmmm….not a hard decision!) and the last one on Sunday because I need to get back to KC before I completely poop out from exhaustion.

*smiles* Unfortunately finances have killed my ability to make it to the convention this weekend.

We missed you… but from an artist’s POV, it was a fairly quiet weekend.

I had a sneaking suspicion that I wasn’t missing much. Not a busy event eh? Everyone was at world con I bet.

Saving up for Worldcon, at the very least. And I suspect that Conglomeration in Louisville KY is next weekend, we lost a few attendees from that side of the region. One speculation is that the date change and the increased membership cost kept a lot of the locals and a lot of the younger fans away.

Ya. Now.. I’d much rather have gone to Worldcon myself. Only because I’ve never been to Japan. ^_~`

Archon dealer’s post is up
It was fun meeting you at Archon/NASFiC this past weekend. I have just posted the “Dealer’s Room” section of my event report, and I included a link to your LJ. Drop by and take a peek if you have time.
