Catching Up

Soooooo.... I went home for Father's Day and Dad told me off for not updating my blog in over a week. I was shocked becuase:
a) I didn't know he read this (hello Dad!)
b) I didn't realise it had been so long!

Sorry! You've missed all sorts of things!

So, I still need to type up something about MCM Expo but the main thing is that it was very good fun. Thanks to everyone that came by! Some people even came to my table saying they read People I Know! What the what?! Amazing.

What else have you missed? Well, I've been catching up with Game of Thrones at a BFF's house who is lucky enough to have both a television and Sky Atlantic. It's really complicated but good fun. Oh - but it's a bit gross and saucy! Don't watch it if you don't like things like that.

I did a drawing for Picard Day!

The washing machine broke and I had to visit the laundrette...which was expensive and harrowing. But not as harrowing at my rendition of Paparazzi at work karaoke! We went bowling beforehand (I won the second game with a score of 146) and I actually had a really fun time. I should start doing more social things I guess... I also sand Don't Stop Believin' from Glee, Life by Des'ree and Lay All Your Love by ABBA. It was a bit awkward though since two of the people there could *really* sing - and they're the worst people to be with at karaoke. Bleurgh.

This week had a very bizarre moment when one of my drawings really blew up (for me at least) across Tumblr. My drawings normally get two or three notes/reblogs/likes but the one I uploaded on Tuesday currently has over 13,000! What. The. Eff?! I know that this is small fry for big Internet types, but it's HUGE for me! I'm kicking myself for not writing the website address in the corner of my drawing (that won't happen again) and I can't get my head around how popular it has been. So thanks to everyone that reblogged it and what not. I hope I can make another drawing soon that is equally as popular!

I also went on a fun trip to the Tate Modern with a new pal. It was really raining and my shoes broke but it was worth it just to see a lady do some dancing in the Turbine Hall, only to be chased away by a security guard. Until he appeared, we weren't sure if the dancing lady was an artist or not. Hooray for Modern Art!

FINAL RANDOM THING: I set up a SoundCloud for some of my old songs! YAY!

My Birthday: Part 3

So, in today's drawing, the wizards give me a magical makeover as a birthday gift...

I had good fun coming up with all the things I think they'd give me so here's a rundown:

Wizard Week 2011: The Final Few


Remember a few weeks ago when it was Wizard Week 2011? I hope so since it was so much fun. I received a few wizards after I'd written up the final entry and although it's no longer Wizard Week, it would be a shame to waste them... So here they are!

This double wizard party was sent in by Matt - someone I met at MCM Expo some time. Matt really likes comics! And you know what, I think he must really like wizards too, except for the second wizards being dead. I think Matt gets bonus points for one of his wizards using his beard as a bird-holding device. What a good idea! Thanks Matt!

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with W... Yes! It's a Wizard! This one was sent in by Hurc who I know through Twitter. I love the book that this wizard is holding - it's totally the sort of book I would buy, especially because magic seems pretty confusing and must be tough. it's also refreshing to see a wizard with a gem on the end of his staff. Gems are important! Thanks for wizard Hurc!

So...this is possibly the final wizard for Wizard Week 2011 and lucky for you, this beardy beauty was sent in by Stuart. And look at his little pointy feet! In my mind, wizards always wear robes but Stuart's onto something - trousers and pointy shoes would make a lot more sense. I mean, you could move around and you look like you could be in a band! And what an amazing beard! Thanks Stuart!

So yeah - that's probably it. I hope I didn't forget anyone! Thanks again to everyone who sent in wizards - I really appreciate it. And I hope you enjoyed yourself!
