Clockwork Alchemy 2012! (pre-event!)
Hey Kids! :) It sure takes a lot of prep for a 4 day event, but I think half of what I’ve accomplished are things that will apply well to future events (and Dark Victorian fun). Clockwork Alchemy 2012 in San Jose, CA, this coming Memorial Day weekend (beginning Friday and ending Monday), is really shaping up. Find out details and how to get your tickets if you’re local, HERE.
There will be such exciting pastimes as airship racing, mechanical fox hunting (this fox will shoot lasers back at you), dance lessons, 19th C. martial arts, AND (among many other fun things requiring music and frolicking) ARTISTS EXHIBITING IN A MAGICAL, MYTHICAL, TIME TRAVELING BAZAAR.
Therefore, this artist/writer/whatchamacallit is bringing Stuff.
Dark Victorian ART!!!
MOAR DArk Victorian ART!!11!
MOAR Dark Victorian BUTToNS GAAAhhh.
Oh, and some leather & steel flash drives, loaded with all three e-book files of THE DARK VICTORIAN: RISEN. Namely, epub, mobi, and an Illustrated PDF (plus free goodies).
The DARK VICTORIAN: RISEN e-books on disc, of course!
And I made myself this (blurry) paper fan. DID YOU know that during Victorian times, there was a ‘fan language’ as well as ‘flower language’ and whatnot? I won’t be signaling anything, especially since this isn’t a folding fan. But there will be lots of bosoms, corsets, and bustles, so … *fans self*.
All pertinent papers, rental car, inventory, outfits (hidden cache of foods and waters), complimentary freebies and candies for customers, etc, are accounted for and now I’m really happy to get back to my BONES manuscript. I look forward to having a venue to share Dark Victorian with more new readers—-and again, I WELCOME and appreciate those reviews, mentions, and Likes (and Pins, and tweets), so Thank You! But all in all, you know it, I especially will be happy to get back on track and Writing again. Clockwork Alchemy was good motivation for getting a few RISEN illustrations done. 1 of Helia Skycourt, 2 of Art (and Jim), and the 4th will be Helene Skycourt; the 5th should be Manon. Of the black and white work for the Risen story itself, I think I’m up to illo 4.
Looking good, yeah? If I go to ten … well, I’ll share later what going to ten illustrations, mean.
HEY! I learned how to tie a dressage cravat.
The cravat tied and worn for Clockwork Alchemy is not guaranteed to look like this picture. :D
I will see you there! Everyone take care, and if time-traveling, safe journey and wishing you much fun upon reaching the destination! :)
All the best,
