I forgot to mention before that the Repose Portfolio is SOLD OUT. Caps for those who only skim by information. No more will be made thus no more will be sold. Cheers to those who picked it up, hope you are happy with it.

     People asking me what upcoming conventions I might attend; I only attend one convention per year at the moment and that is Anthrocon. It is a small convention which allows me to basically take a vacation there and relax a little.

  For those who went to Anthrocon and were like 'Hey you didn't do a con report, brah'...the thing is...I don't really DO much at the convention. I don't go to panels. I hang out with my friends when I can and walk around. I don't know a billion people there since I don't really get involved heavily in community stuff. SO! here is my con report-

    I arrived early at hotel (axerindustries.com/axernyr.JPG) and hung out with my friends which include but are not limited to kiefer, nitro (axerindustries.com/nitronyr.JP…), artie, matt burt (axerindustries.com/mattnyr.JPG), etc... Played video games (axerindustries.com/gamesnyr.JP…) and didn't work. Met up with people I hadn't met in person such as Kami, Ken Singshow, Seel, Vera etc. Played more video games and ate food and didn't work. Then I ran a sales table that was positioned to stare at eric schwartz (axerindustries.com/salesview.J…) (axerindustries.com/axerconcirc…)  for 3 days and worked but only lightly. Met a lot of nice people( axerindustries.com/peoplenyr.J…)...but none nicer than Crono (axerindustries.com/crononyr.JP…) or cooler than jack Sparrow (axerindustries.com/jacksparrow…). I took pictures with people where I always look ridiculously awkward...such as with Jason Canty (axerindustries.com/cantyaxerny…) ...my buddy Fossil (axerindustries.com/fossilaxern…) and Kurt Batz (axerindustries.com/kurtaxernyr…). I take it easy at cons so I don't really do sketches and such there. Hung out with the Angry Viking Press guys to talk about some future work (axerindustries.com/angryviking…). I was on the 14th floor and everyone was so lazy that they avoided the stairs like the plague...so I used the stairs a lot (axerindustries.com/stairsnyr.J…). I avoided the gathering place (axerindustries.com/aughnyr.JPG) most of the time due to the noise and discomfort. I drew stupid faces on vegetables (axerindustries.com/durr.jpg) and ate food and hung out with friends and drew a badge of my friend on fire (axerindustries.com/artiebadge.…) and eventually went home. better than last year and i look forward to next year. Hopefully I'll hang out with more people next time.

   Getting back to work now. Cheers~

your obviously thinking it's no big deal...but it is for me...because the man you saw, is the man who cured me of my disease, the man who saved me from an eternal mental block, the very man who first got me interested on anthro art, he was the one who gave me the biggest inspiration I ever had in my life, he was my first HERO!!!

Maybe you should tell him that, then.

to me he was the man who ignored me cuz my art didn't have enough porn in it.

to tell you the truth, I don't really give a rats ass about his art, I'm just happy that I can draw again without bashing my head into the wall, I still have bruises on my forehead!

I'm not concerned; it comes down to politics. I'm not Old Guard, and I don't do porn just to get noticed so I don't end up in a lot of the art circle jerking. Better for it, too. I can't say it doesn't make me chuckle, though.

That's where I got stuck a long time ago, trying to cater to that Old Guard audience while also trying to evolve into an actual "respectable" artist - it's been a long time coming, and if I could do it all over again I would have never done a single commission (at least where/with whom I had done them before), simply so I could start off with some idea of what -I- wanted rather than what -they- wanted. I wanted to put the worlds in my head into images; they wanted fox people with hard-ons.

i dunno , ijust always wanted to domy own thing. it's more work an thats why people shy away from it..less money ,more work, ppl getl azy blah blah but it always works well.

Hahaha!!! Awesome man! A pity you have to work so hard all the time and only get the Anthrocon off, but awesome.

Haha, I didn't get what you meant by looking awkward until I saw you and Fossil, but the one with Kurt seemed fine.

I hope maybe... tch... JUST maybe I might be able to go to the next Anthrocon.

Anyway, hoping someone gives you a bit of a break and yet still hoping you get plenty of time to further your own interests.

Best con report I've ever read. Short, and it's got pictures!

Yeah it was brief meeting ya, but I pretty much did the same as you...relaxed at the hotel, hung out with some friends, and whatnot. Wasn't actually at the convention much this year. If I go next year, I'll hopefully hang with you n' the gang a bit more.

I didn't actually hang with the AVP much as they were working their tables and I was working mine..i avoided the noise party in shawntae's room the nights prior and didn't get a chance to meet up and chill later since everyone was in a rush.

Maybe we can do things a bit different next year. I know you're about privacy and chillin in your hotel room away from the craziness. Given what AC is like sometimes, that's understandable...I like quiet. :) Still would be cool if we'd all do an art jam one night, or just go out for drinks.

Well I don't usually draw at conventions..and I don't drink. If we got out to a decent place to eat to shoot the shit for a while, though, that would be fine by me.

Maybe one of these "years" I'll be able to come up with better conversation at your table instead of staring at you like a slab of steak. (not that you're slab-like in shape)
When I get within 5 feet of your table I feel that *giant eye sparkle* thing begin. ^^; I think I'm allergic to ya.

XD you do you look so awkward in all the pics. Which is odd since you don't normally look awkward(based off of when I met you at AC '06).

And which SSBM character were you playing :o?
