Started my new job today. Got to sit on my butt watching videos for 8 hrs.This was apart of my orientation. Tomorrow is when they really put me to work. On my way home I saw a beautiful rainbow over my neighborhood. I took a picture of it.Maybe its a sign of good things to come.
Well Luis pretty much got our badges for Fanime this year. The good news is that my job will give me Memorial Day off or a day during Memorial Day off. So I'm hoping that I can get all of Friday through Monday off.I know its a lot to ask considering I just started the job.But I did tell them about Fanime during the interview and I still got the job. Fanime hasn't open table registration yet. My buddy Edgar and I did go down to San Jose to check out the new renovations done to the convention center.All I can say is Wow!. A lot more space inside with 3 new huge ball rooms and actual seating upstairs on the concourse. The outside of the convention has a really good setup that the cosplayers will love. I hope the con organizers go all out this year and take full advantage of all the space available
As far as projects ..
Kill La Kill line art is done and ready for color but I gotta scan it
Mikasa from Attack on Titan is %60 done.
Harley Quinn is still a work in progress
Sailor Mercury is still a work in progress
So things are ...progressing. I just gotta get in contact with my colorists to see if they are on board for some color commission work. The good thing is that since I am making my own money I don't have to get Luis's permission on what should or should not get colored. As far as our business arrangements I am just going to keep things as they are for the rest of year. I owe Luis a lot for all he has done for me over the past for years. So I am not going to be an asshole about things this year. But next year I will be evaluating on where I want to go with my art. Whether or not I want to continue selling my art at cons. Or if I want to continue to help Luis grow and expand Blue Baby Art.
One major goal I would like to have for Blue Baby Art is to publish an art book. Doujinshi style
. The art will feature all the Blue Baby artists artwork and collabs .As well as maybe a few short comic stories. Its definitely doable if all of us put some work into getting it done.
