|05:39 am - TL;DR|
LJ informs me it has been 16 weeks since my last entry! More shocking to me is that I have any friends left at all, so sincere thanks for keeping me on your list!
A couple things have happened during my absence: graduated from art school, freelance illustration, blah blah. Now that I'm like, part of the real world or whatever, I'm straight up terrified and pretty much flying blind. The more I put myself out there the more confused I get! Prime example: worked the Parsons table at MoCCA. Being BEHIND a table for the first time was a weirrrrd experience for me - it's a whole different game back there! Apparently there's a certain etiquette and stuff, like there's 14 different salad forks, and I'm sure I soup-spooned a couple people by accident. Still, always a lot of fun and I'm pretty sure it just gets bigger, better, and sweatier every year.
Another comics note - does anybody know of a font software, preferably the free kind, that makes your own handwriting font? Ideally it'd use multiple variations so that the letters aren't totally uniform all the time, but that's the least of my concerns.
I'm also trying to start up a more professional 'big girl' blog at http://berylsays.blogspot.com/ but xposting seems kinda redundant and varying content means double the work right? Some of you out there must keep separate blogs or tumblrs or whatever you kids are into, I could sure use your pearls of wisdom! (I was going to say xangas, but I hear they're so five seconds ago) Anyway I'm not quite sure yet if this is my triumphant return to livejournal, but as of right now I intend to at least um, resurface. Make some sort of reemergence. I don't know, just don't give up on me yet!
And finally, to hopefully make this worth your while, a bunch of my friends and I and 200 other artists, literally! are in the DIME BAG 3 show at Giant Robot which opens this weekend. If you're in the area, stop by and say hi at the reception Saturday night. Invite follows, + a teaser of the piece I submitted. CLICK IMG FOR THE FULL!

Check it out! This is the girl baby name popularity trend according to Thinkbabynames.com - apparently there were a thousand of us running around in the 1950s, and then we died out altogether.

Ok so basically Garage Band by Gipi and the movie Rockers (2003) - graciously provided here at tobenaitsubasa - have seriously rocked my life and inspired a slew of messy watercolor sketches.
...which you can see some more of at the all-new overhauled v2.0 berylsays.com !!!

Remember me? I knowwww don't be mad I haven't been particularly vigilant keeping this up. I'm putting a lot of effort into, um, graduating from college and it sucks but it's almost over and that's what's really important.
So I've been working on this comic about my trip to China. It's about my experience as a dumb American in a country that is and isn't mine. (Those characters on the title page are my Chinese name.) I'm a little bit embarrassed about the whole thing, I'm not sure what people will glean from it and if they will make fun of me, but I've put a preview under the cut. Plz take a look and we can discuss it later, ok? ( Read more...Collapse )
