Kero asleep

Blur...?

I went to bed at 11:00, dropped off to sleep fairly quickly, woke up at 6:00 with the alarm feeling bright and perky ... had breakfast, took a shower ... and immediately felt more worn out and dead-dog-tired than I have for a long time.

WTF, mate?

So now I'm at work with that slightly-nauseous feeling you get when you've been awake waaaay to long, wondering what my stupid body is up to. :P

Con Centration

D'Oh! A post in somebody else's LJ just reminded me that I haven't finished the Tiffany Skibunny pic for the FC conbook, and it's due by Dec. 1 -- so I better do that tonight, week off or no!

While I'm at it, I should probably get my plane tickets tonight, too. Got the hotel room already. Hmm ... any new merchandise for FC? Must ponder!

Space Fantasy That's Really Space _Fantasy_

Some recent posts over in worldmaking have left me pondering the idea of space fantasy that stops pretending that it isn't fantasy and instead takes that aspect and highlights it ... e.g., wizards in spaceships, planets ruled by demons, that kind of thing. The D&D spinoff Spelljammer is an example that comes to mind ... probably Star Wars works here too, although it often at least pretends to be SF. Lots of anime uses it.

I'm curious what people think and how they feel about it. Is it neat? Boring? Intriguing? Stupid?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Siberian Tiger In Her Natural Environment! [artwork]

Woohoo! Done, done well (if I do say so myself), and done a week before deadline! Could anything possibly be more gratifying to an artist?

Well, yeah, accolades and tons of money, I suppose, but three out of five ain't bad atall!

In case you're wondering, I'm talking about my conbook image for Further Confusion 2004. The theme is "The Great Outdoors," and to that end, I present: Collapse )

Feedback welcome! =)
