Laurie is giving no subtle hints that she's not thrilled about the idea of me going to MFF, due to the expense of AC, D*C, and the impending move. The only way to keep peace in the household is to arrange for there to be a surplus of money.

I have a couple of possibilities for that, which include art auctions, freelance work on the side, getting merchandise off the ground at Dragon*Con, and, y'know, begging.

Art auctions is iffy, due to time constraints. Freelance work I can probably squeeze in starting in October, once the move is out of the way -- but that will be too late for MFF. It could go towards FC in January, I suppose.

Merchandise at Dragon*Con is a possibility. My t-shirt maven says that if I can get art to her by early next week, she'll see what she can do about getting shirts ready by mid- to late-August. It's a tight schedule and might not be feasible, but I'm going to try.

I went out this evening after my counseling appointment and got a bunch of magazines for reference: I plan to do a new, drop-dead gorgeous Tiffany pinup for a new shirt design. It'll probably be in a similar vein to this, but with sharper coloring. I'm open to suggestions, if anybody has one!

Of course, the problem with the t-shirts is that first I've got to pay back the shirt maven!

Anyway, the way I see it, just about the only way I can get to MFF without lots of monetary fretting from my better half, is by defraying enough costs at Dragon*Con to be able to say, "Yeah, we can afford it!" If I can get either Dragon*Con or MFF to pay for themselves, then both are possible. If not, only one of them is, and Dragon*Con is already a done deal.

Oh yeah, buttons! I forgot about that. I gotta do some of those, too. *rummages around for his notes*

I'll get this worked out somehow. Just wish me luck! Meanwhile, sleep is in order. G'nite!

The Same Thing We Do EVERY Night, Pinky...

Did a bunch of roughs for t-shirt ideas today; I really like three of them, although HantaMouse suggested and I concur that one of them would be better as a color flyer -- which I might also try to do.

I am trying to decide how risque it should be. One of them has Tiffany wearing nothing but an oversized men's button-down shirt a la Jane Fonda in Barefoot In the Park -- which doesn't show anything that one of her bikini pics doesn't show already, but somehow manages to be twenty times more rrrrroowwrrrrr.

The other is a perspective shot that basically has Tiff lying on the ground facing the viewer -- you see her face and arms and hair, and her lower back and knees. I could have it be a racy pic and have her nude, which would basically allow you to see the base of her tail where it meets her spine. Or I could have her wearing a sun dress or something along the lines of the ROWR Magazine cover. I'm not sure which would (A) be better artistically, and (B) sell more t-shirts. I'm open to comments, if you have any.

I'm going to work at least one of these up as a full-blown picture for the T-Shirt Maven tomorrow. Unfortunately, that will kill D&D for this weekend, since I am supposed to be the DM next. Alas and alack, but I must prioritize somehow.

I won't go into a long rant about magazines here, but I will note that it's very interesting the difference between what women's magazines say is sexy for women, and what men's magazines do. Women's magazines are all about allure; men's magazines are all about sleaze. It's bizarre. :)

Frankly, sleazy women make me go "Eeeew!" and yank my paws away like a cat reacting to flypaper. I have never understood the appeal, and guess I never will.

But then, I have odd tastes, generally. :)

Well, that's all for tonight, I think. Catcha later, all!
