Denver Comic Con went really well. I was only there on Sunday, but I got to meet up with several Oatley Academy students - always a blast! I took copious notes on booth set ups since Raul and I will be sharing a table this year at CTN. :)
I've started a SECOND OniSan so even if this puppet doesn't turn out well, I will still have an Oni to show in November. Raul has started digitally sculpting the puppet's faces. I should have some process photos soon - of both versions.
Painting Drama 1 started up the same weekend as DCC, so I've been busy busy on those homework assignments too. It's a challenge, but it's totally blowing my mind with awesome!
We went to see Raul's family for the 4th of July. It was...adventurous. I particularly enjoyed climbing over all the boulders and trying out a s'mores shot. This weekend he'll be going back to pick up his dog - a 14 year old chihuahua named Tito. Tito didn't like me the first 5 or so times I came home with Raul, but I think he's significantly less grumpy now that his hip is doing better. Hopefully he doesn't find our lifestyle too boring or lonely.
Now I need to wrap this up since it's Raul and my anniversary and we're going out for dinner. Thanks for hanging in there, everyone. I'll be posting more artwork soon!! :)
