Back on Earth

Got back from AC around 4:00, climbed upstairs and passed out for a couple of hours. I had a great time at the con, and sales were overall better than expected. The only unhappy thing about the weekend really was last night in the Zoo, when someone had mixed alcohol, drugs (type unknown), and neurotic attacks, and ended up being taken out semi-comatose on a stretcher, with her uncooperative companion being escorted along in handcuffs. A few furs who are EMT's in their daily life jumped in to assist, while a few of the others of us on the scene assisted with crowd control and general "please-disperse-nothing-to-see-here"-ing. Unfortunately, at any sort of gathering of this size, there is a certain amount of inevitability to such scenes; I just hope no permanent damage has been done, although I doubt I'll ever find out either way.

On the artistic front, my output at this con was something of a mixed bag. Some of the pieces I did, I felt were quite good given the venue, but I still have a tendency to be very rough and sketchy. Everyone who got some art seemed pleased with it, however, which of course I was glad to see. I also had a lot of people whom I'd rarely or never spoken to come up and tell me how much they enjoyed SJ and wish me luck on getting back on schedule. As I told them, the good news on that front is that the big project I've been working so hard on for the past few months finally got turned in (at least for the initial round) this past week, so hopefully that will free up my mental bandwidth (and my weekends!) for some creative work again.

There was also some progress re: NeverNever, which sorely needs attention. Most of my projects have basically been "on hold" since Further Confusion, so there wasn't that much new for me to cover with my co-conspirators, but it was still good to touch base and make sure we were all on the same page.

And now, back to work. Alas! But let's hope for a nice con bounce. :) Productivity would be a nice change. ;)
