I took forever to make this post, but it’s finally here! Thanks to my table partner Kido for making this map upon my request (cuz I’m a lazy procrastinating turd)! 
I’m at Anime Expo Artist Alley once again this year! The alley moved to Kentia Hall this year. There are a ton of signs though, so please follow them downstairs from the lobby to the alley. We are at B41, as indicated by the map. I’ll have my usual prints and charms, as well as a few new Pokemon buttons (including the new starters). Probably most exciting is I finally have the 6th generation of Pokemon, Kalos, ready for sale! I will upload sometime this weekend! (I know I've been totally not on top of anything at all and I'm super out of it right now. I'll be back soon, I promise!) Hope to see some friends there!

Hey friends! I'll be at SacAnime Summer at table AA27 this week! Probably should have announced it sooner but I remembered in the midst of packing. Here's a table map! 


I'll be next to :iconhasuyawn:, who is at AA26. Come visit us and say hi! I'll have prints, charms, buttons, blankets, and pencil bags! It's my first SacAnime so I can't wait to have some fun. \o/

After a lot of stress and hardship, Fanime 2015 is a go for me! hasuyawn and I are at different tables this year, but next to each other! Come visit us at tables 913 and 914 and say hi! We love friends! \o/ I'll be selling prints, buttons, pencil bags, and my Pokemon blanket! I'll also do on-site sketch/lineart/watercolor commissions.

Also, I know I've been MIA for well over a year and I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things over summer. I'm super busy until June so most likely I will not get around to uploading things I've been drawing. I've been active on my Tumblr, fishenod. Check me out there! 

Hope to see some of you at Fanime! Cheers!

CONS 2014!!

Hey guys! Long time no see! I'm sorry I've been crazzzyyyy inactive. School's killer and now I have many other distractions on my plate as well. Just an update so you guys know I'm not MIA or something. 

I will be attending 3 cons this year and selling at their artist alleys! such excitement
Anime Conji - San Diego, April 18-20 with :iconatomicmangos:
FanimeCon - San Jose, May 23-26 with :iconhasuyawn:
Anime Expo - Los Angeles, July 3-6 with :iconhasuyawn:

I'll post maps once I get them. I would post the map for Conji, but there's only 35 tables in the whole alley so picking me out isn't really hard. I'm in the middle of all of them though, so don't look on the outskirts for me, haha. 

Really disappointed I didn't get anything drawn in February...I was hoping to do the month summary meme this year, but I guess I'll have to wait until next year again. :'( (or I can just skip February I guess)

Back from my Cruise!

First of all, I wanna thank all of my watchers. I hit over 700! You're all awesome! Thank you so much for your continued support of my artwork. It means a lot to me and is a great present for the holidays. :iconpandarunplz:

And sorry for the Pokemon spam. I was supposed to upload them everyday, but I got lazy...22 days ago. Hah. I've been uploading them to Tumblr though, which is where it counts more I guess??

I stuffed myself silly on the cruise. I probably gained like 372463846297 pounds. The weather forecast for the day before we were supposed to dock back in Houston, Texas, was really bad. Heavy fog and thunderstorms, apparently. Well, we definitely saw the fog. Not much else to see other than the fog. :U The captains tried to get us back the night before our original arrival to try and beat the storm but really heavy fog set in. Then they told all the passengers that we would need to stay on the ship for a whole extra day because the port closed and refused to let ships dock. So my parents canceled our flight home and booked it two days later. Then the next morning, our original arrival date, the captains told us the port reopened and we would dock that morning. Which meant if we didn't get our flight back, we would be stuck in Houston for 2 extra days.

Luckily for us, we got our flight back. :'D Basically the seats we gave up...no one took them. So we just got them back, LOL. AT NO EXTRA COST, THANK YOU SOUTHWEST. So I got home on time and boy, am I happy to be home. I was kinda sick of the ship But mostly because I had no wifi for a week SERIOUSLY GUYS THAT'S THE WORST THING FOR ME. I THINK HALF OF MY STUFFING WAS STRESS EATING TO FILL THE VOID FROM LACK OF WIFI.

tl;dr Almost didn't make it home on time because of shitty Houston weather.

I'm trying to decide what I wanna get done during this break. I don't actually have much time left. Only two weeks. And most of that will be spent with friends...but I hope I can cram a picture or two in??? Or you guys can just enjoy my Pokemon spam. Ha.

Anyways, I hope you guys have been having a great holiday so far! I wanna try and do a New Year picture! I'll seeeeeeeee.

Stay awesome,
Alexie

GOING ON A CRUISE

Probably no one cares since I spend years replying to messages anyways, but I just finished finals and am currently at the airport to fly to Texas to go on a cruise. \o/ I'll have no wifi for about a week, until the 22nd, so I definitely won't see any messages until then. I've been doing the 30-day Pokemon challenge on my tumblr though, so y'all should totally check it out if you haven't already:

fishenod.tumblr.com/tagged/art

I've completed every drawing for the next week and queued it to upload everyday, so if you wanted to see more Pokemon art from me, it's on there.

See you guys in a week!

Cheers,
Alexie

Nevermind! It was :iconyuumei: who posted it on her public facebook. Thank you so much! You're so great. ;A; The comments people wrote on it were so wonderful. I'm glad I was able to teach others about a beautiful, beautiful thing that I hope will never disappear from our world! Coral reefs are really just too important!

So today, I just suddenly found a oddly large number of faves and extra comments on my flash comic, "Beauty Through the Haze." I didn't get a DD or anything, so did someone post it somewhere? Cuz I didnt put it up anywhere. xD So...yeah if someone can tell me how that happened, I'd appreciate knowing, since I'm glad the message got passed around. I wasn't trying to spread it until I completely finished coloring it though haha. ^^; But thank you, anyways! I'm glad people are seeing the issue of coral reef destruction and thinking about it! Truly! C:

When you buy posters/prints from conventions, or just anywhere in general, what do you look for? You can just answer the following questions, or just give your own reply.

Points to consider:
1) Do you prefer pictures where the character(s) is just posing? What kind of pose do you look for?

2) Do you prefer pictures where the character is interacting/confronting another, or actually doing something with the background?

3) Would you buy a picture if it's sad, but speaks out to you? (Like, would you want to hang it up?)

4) What kind of franchise (anime/manga/game) do you look for in your prints?

5) Do you like single shots or group shots?

6) Anything else?

I really appreciate it if I got some feedback. xD Thanks!

~Alexie

Hands down. That was the best 4 days of my life.
I don't feel like recapping all the happenings of this weekend, so I'll just list out all the friends I met!

Firstly, I met an online friend for the first time at a convention, :iconjoyfulldreams:. I'm sorry I didn't have as much time to walk around with you Becca! Maybe next year...but I find myself super reluctant to leave my table for long whiles of time until almost closing time. But girl, so glad to have met you!

I met :iconaidou: at the BOE offices while getting my permit. She's SUCH a good crocheter. I bought her Oshawott chami. Well actually, I requested it from her, and she saved it just for me. I'm going to do a picture for her later as well. xD Stephanie, it was so awesome seeing you again! Didn't get to hang out, but we were both so busy. I wish you and your fiance happiness in your upcoming wedding!

Now this list is long. Like, REALLY LONG.
:iconyuumei: :iconbluebirdjoy: :iconcerise-angel: :iconguavi: :iconhearst: :iconlittlecloudflower: :iconsilverfang-kiba: :iconsorestian: :iconwhyming: :iconwildicebell:
I dressed up as a Knite and had to amazing honor to  meet yuumei She is just the sweetest and cutest person ever. She seemed to be rather proud of my newfound hippie ways from APES. I can say so much more, but that would take a while. She was just really awesome, ok? sorestian became one of my new friends. He was our photographer, and was one of the people who I never stopped talking to, haha!
I also got to finally meet Guavi bluebirdjoy and Cerise-Angel after talking with them about the gathering and seeing their amazing Knite costumes. Bean, why are you such an epic Sen? And you were all so good at the Masquerade! I don't care if you killed every person in your skit, you were still really awesome!
I paled in comparison because I didn't have lights for my kite. THAT WAS SO STUPID. I didn't order them in time! So I was kinda sad about that, but NEXT YEAR. I'LL HAVE THEM.
I basically spent a majority of the Artist Alley after hours bumming around with the lot of them. Honestly, I've never had so much fun in my life. Going out to dinner(twice) with them was one of the funnest and most childish experiences in my recent years. I felt like I was a little kid around them again. It made me so happy.

I got to give some little art gifts to :iconcartoongirl7: and :icone1n: They are such awesome people as well. I wanted to say "hi" to them more, but they always seemed so busy, and I was awfully busy too. But I'm glad I had the honor to chat a bit with them and greet them once during the con.

............

Just a brief overview of my con experience. Table-ing was fun, amazing, exhausting, and stressful. I think I barely managed to cover the costs of my prep for the convention, but at least I have experience. I'll know better next time!

I'll put up pictures sometime next week. I have so many of them though. Hopefully I'll find around 10 good ones to put up.

One word to describe my Fanime time?
There just isn't one. It was too amazing for words.

Cheers!
Hip hip!

Quickie update~

Journal Entry: Thu May 5, 2011, 7:45 PM
:icontransparentplz:


Hiya guys, Alexie here!

So my AP exams are over, but I still got SATs on Saturday.
Blarg, I don't even know how I did on that test. I feel like my score could go either way. Knew I shoulda studied more! XD

But my main reason for posting this is to tell you guys I won't be posting up art (or very unlikely) for the rest of this month, and probably for a bit of the beginning of next month.

This is partially because of Fanime, and mostly because I'm working on a massive school project, which involves art. I'm doing the art digitally, and this will be a really great practice for me in using digital art, drawing scenery, and drawing from different perspectives.

Point is, look forward to something really awesome sometime in the end of May and early June. (At least I hope it's awesome?)

Commissions will be on hold until June(As I've said for a while now, I'm sorry people who commissioned me!), and I may or may not update my Fanfic until June. I'm thinking maybe I'll post up a short little filler chapter for the lulz, and as a way to let people on Fanfiction know I'm taking a short hiatus to get some stuff done.

In any case, I'll be working on this project o' mine!
Peace!

My print samples came from the printers today!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 28, 2011, 6:33 PM
:icontransparentplz:


My business card is pretty damn gorgeous, except they didnt full bleed it like I said to. Oh well, that's easy enough to fix.

Aspiring Champions was printed darker than I'd like, but it looks pretty good, so no complaints, I guess. xD

Johto came out beautiful, all things considered. The coloring looks pretty smooth, although the red sticks out like a sore thumb, but its fine.

The problem is Kanto. Compared to Johto, it looks pretty ucky. But not enough to be a HUGE problem. My main concern is that a bit of the Pokemon on the far left and a smidge of the ones on top get chopped off. THAT definitely needs to be fixed.

Otherwise, I'm pretty damn satisfied. Seeing my stuff printed on nice paper, and BIG paper for that matter, makes me rather excited. I can't wait for Fanime!

But first, I should study for my exams.

HELL YEAH, BIZNATCHES, I GOT MY FANIME TABLE!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 18, 2011, 3:47 PM
:icontransparentplz:


YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT! :iconstuberosum: and I are sharing a table at Fanime, and we just got approval this morning! Apparently it was first come first serve, and the tables sold out the first day. Then they rearranged the floor plan to accomodate more tables and did a lottery to pick out which artists got tables. I bet there was a ton of extra tables added. We got totally lucky.

So I'm totally excited. I still have a few things I'd like to finish by Fanime, but with AP exams coming in 2 weeks, as well as SATs, my hands are totally full. xD Ideally, I'd LIKE to be done with Johto before April is up. (Finished the lineart!) But we'll see.

Thank god I'm already 1/3 of the way with sketching Hoenn. So hopefully I get everything I'd like to get done in time, and still ace all my exams!

Not to mention some last minute touchups on my Fanime cosplay.
So much to do, so much to do...

But for now, I HAVE MY TABLE, AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS.
Fanime is going to be AMMAAAZZZINNGGG this year!

Lots of cheers!

Just thought I'd put it out there. Touko, White, Hilda, whatever.

I fricking love that girl's design. I don't care what people say about those slutty, jailbait shorts of her, she's fricking awesome.
Which is why I'm going to cosplay that whore I love so much for Fanime.
Yay!

Speaking of, I hope my friend and I get that Artist Alley table. There are apparently not many left...Sigh.
Best to keep up the good spirits, eh?

Cheerio!

Well actually, I came back on Saturday, but I've been busy busy, and still am! I have a MOUNTAIN of messages to get through, not that I'll complain, since I still can't believe my picture was the #10 most popular on dA at one point. xD It was just too awesome. THank you guys!

I'll slowly reply to all the messages this time around. I'm only going to thank the people who added me to their watch list. I can't hand out 2000+ llamas. I'm sorry guys!

Ah yes, a quick word about the cruise. Basically, I napped a lot in the sun, ATE SO MUCH DELICIOUS FOOD, MY GOD THERE WAS FREE FOOD 24/7 AND IT WAS SO DELICIOUS AND I COULDN'T STOP EATING AND OH MY GOD I MISS THE FREE FOOD SO MUCH. And yeah. I went to Mexico! I got a new dA ID too.

Anyways, just letting you know I got back, and will slowly get things back on track!

Cheers!
