My gallery is very mixed bag, but that's due to the fact that I lack talent with a pencil and have to make do with what I do have. Inside you will find literature, cosplay, digital coloring, photography, comics, photocomics, and all manners of silliness.

Random from My Characters by Other Artists

Gift art and commissions of my original characters, all from wonderful artists! And yes, I'm aware that most of the characters in here are wolves. What can I say? They're my favorite animal.

TFCon

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 4:09 PM
It's a 43-hour bus ride from Tucson and Chicago and vice versa, and it was not without incident. It wasn't until the final leg of my journey that a bus driver asked, no, demanded to see my ID--and even as I was in the process of pulling it out, started screaming at me that I either show her my ID or she wouldn't let me back on the bus. Keep in mind, this was a reboarding, and I had all my stuff on the bus. I was the only passenger she IDed, too, and as much as I hate to play the race card, the only thing that set me apart from the other passengers was my being Mexican. I emailed a complaint to Greyhound, and they promised to deal with her, and they're sending me a $50 voucher for my next ride, though I don't anticipate traveling again within the next year.

But the sleepless nights, bumpy rides, having to go into Texas, and asshole border patrol stormtroopers were all totally worth it to attend TFCon and spend the weekend with my oldest friend. I got to Chicago the perfect time of the year--fall is absolutely gorgeous! Being an Arizonan, I had only ever seen it before in jigsaw puzzles.

I got to meet quite a few awesome people--James Roberts, Venus Terzo, Dan Gilvezan and Alan Oppenheimer (two hilarious guys), Brendan Cahill (whose work you can see below), Sarah Stone and even Seibertron and WaywardInsecticon. And I bought soo many toys. I just wish there had been more Beast Wars merch at the convention, but I guess it's a good thing otherwise I would have come back with no money at all. But I met two little girls there at the convention who were looking for Beast Wars toys, one who got so excited to find Tigatron, but ultimately wound up getting Silverbolt. Made my day to see kids still enjoying my favorite childhood show.

James Roberts is a super guy. I told him he's a personal hero of mine because he too got his start writing fan fiction. We talked a little about the authors who inspire us and I recommended one of my favorite sci fi novels to him--surprisingly, he doesn't read a lot of sci fi. And on Sunday I had lunch with him (well, I sat down and ate while he just shot the breeze with fans in the lounge) and chatted about Transformers and Doctor Who with him. He shares my views on Moffat, and we snickered a bit about a certain previous writer whose name is now mud in the TF fandom. I also got him to crack up at my Rung joke. I just wish I didn't look so goofy in our picture.

And Venus Terzo... Oh, Venus, such a sweetheart. I asked her what she felt about Blackarachnia's relationship to Silverbolt and she said she appreciated how BA remained a strong independent character, didn't get reduced to a simpering love interest like so many other female characters. She sounded like she's still very proud of her character. Beast Wars has had a more profound effect on my life than any other TV series, and I told her how it got me into Transformers, which got me into RPGs, which got me into writing, which lead me to become an aspiring author--and she wished me luck!

After the convention, the organizers had a panel asking for feedback. When I mentioned my two-day bus trip to get there, they gave me a TF Prime Dark Energon Wheeljack figure! So my first Transformers convention was a roaring success, and I can't wait to do it again. One of these days, I'll get myself a gorilla costume and make myself an Optimus Primal cosplay. Although now that I have a Death's Head figure, I kinda wanna do the Seventh Doctor and keep him in my coat pocket.

Oh yes, and on the bus ride home I sang classic rock songs to a two year old to soothe him. He was enraptured. Now, I'm glad to be home, and I'm richer for the experience.

There was a pause. Then Twoflower said, “You see, last night it occurred to me, I thought, well, the thing is, all this travelling and seeing things is fine but there’s also a lot of fun to be had from having been. You know, sticking all your pictures in a book and remembering things.”
“There is?”
“Oh, yes. The important thing about having lots of things to remember is that you’ve got to go somewhere afterwards where you can remember them, you see? You’ve got to stop. You haven’t really been anywhere until you’ve got back home. I think that’s what I mean.”

No problem! And we seniors are no more special than anyone else. We've just been a little more active around here is all. With a little effort and community spirit, you too could become a senior someday!
