Geek Love 2012

Actually saw this couple at Comic Con! They were one of my favorite cosplays. Here are a few more photos of some other costumes I liked!

 Met up with a few friends of mine while working the Bolt City booth!

 Cock that HIP!

 We found Carmen Sandiego!!!
Overall, Comic Con was pretty AMAZING!! It was my first year going, and helping out at the booth was so much fun! I got to meet a lot of the Flight artists and made so many new friends. It's just awesome to be in a place where you can geek out with a total stranger and become buddies by the end of the conversation. XD

Keep an eye out for Amulet 5: Prince of the Elves!

On a completely different note: I'm going to be at Comic Con this weekend! It's my first year going, so I'm super excited. Make sure to stop by the Bolt City booth and say "hello"!

Cardboard Monsters

So... I've been hoarding cereal boxes in my apartment for the longest time. It's about time I do something with them!

Siren O Siren

Was watching the Dark Shadows movie a few weeks back, and really loved the dark eye makeup for the vampires. Though...somehow along the way, I started drawing sirens instead.

Monster God Sketches

I feel like I should have a proper name for these guys. They're like lonely puppies with nowhere to call home. Any ideas?

Behold...the Water Gods

Something I've been working on in my spare time.

Shanghai Part 4: The Final Chapter

Thankfully, our flight home wasn't scheduled until later that evening, so we had time for a little more exploring. I desperately wanted to visit another temple, so I was very happy we got a chance to stop by this one.

Apparently, you're supposed to throw coins into the top tiers. Because I suck at sports, it was a true victory to get a couple in.
This statue is HUGE! I had to crane in order to get a proper pic.

Before going to China was even an option, I happened to read a book about Chinese luck symbols. Due to a pun on certain words (which you can read about here), bats are considered very lucky! Therefore, it was a secret joy to see them carved all over the pillars. 
 A little funny to think that this beautiful golden temple is in the middle of a busy city!
 After the temple, we went to the top of the Shanghai World Financial Center...or the "Bottle Opener" as the librarians called it. It's the fourth tallest building in the world!

 It was really creepy being so high up! 

 There were these clear openings in the floor where you could see all the way to the ground floor. It was really nerve wracking! I tip toed around like a duck, afraid that I would somehow fall through!

...And that was our trip! 12 and a half hours, 3 reality shows, and 4 Muppet Movies later, we were back home in the states. It's hard to believe the trip even happened. Such a spectacular adventures, how could I ever forget it!?
Thanks for putting up with all my picture spam. More illustrations coming soon!

Until Next Time!
