After talking with the current con-ops fellow, it would seem that I'm back in the saddle again to do A-Kon's badges and staff shirt.
Yay. Sort of yay.
They want something else, no more Geishabots, "it's time for something new", apparently branding means nothing. Also they want a male mascot along with a female one...sounds like the militant yaoi crowd demanded a change. It would seem that some of you that responded to my last journal were correct about the way things are going, but they don't want to lose all of the old A-Kon crew( most of which have quit or moved on), and were seemingly happy to have me do the work.
But I've got some ideas, and we will see what transpires. But I'm not going to bust my ass over this, and my geishabots will still be made for me and y'all to enjoy here on DA and over at Pixiv. The robot girls may also have a new enterprise to be a part of soon, if all goes well...but I cannot share any details at this time.
But Aki, Uma, and Hitomi...as far as convention work is concerned, they are retired...but their adventures will still continue in artwork.
I've just finished a very well received piece of art for that USAF intelligence flight. They were extremely happy with what they got, and wanted me to visit them.
Sadly, they were in Maryland, and I'm here in Texas, and I really don't have time for a trip. They also promptly paid me, with a note that I earned every penny, and will be sending me a couple of the t-shirts and a group photo.
Happy customers and new fans.
So, back at it...A-Kon back in the job cycle, got my submission to issue 34 of North American Furs to work on, I've got some things to do for my villainous patron...The Supreme Dark Lord of the ELofE, some more SF hardware, more aliens, and of course more girls.
