I feel like I have just finally come back to earth. Getting the True Loves 3 book done, going to TCAF and VanCAF getting a new store set up. It took a lot out of me.
I had a sketchbook that was almost finished so I didn’t take it to TCAF. It took me until this weekend to finally get back to it and fill up the last pages. I did my traditional self-portrait as the last drawing.
I did this drawing from this video from VanCAF. Now I notice myself sitting with my hands this way strangely often.
Speaking of VanCAF, here are a few photos.
Look at that crowd! Look at Colin Upton! Look at Amancay! I hardly talked to Amancay all day Saturday, but then ended up sitting with him at the Storm Crow, which was great because he is an awesome guy and we had a great chat.
Ah the Storm Crow. I had heard all the local nerds talking about this magical nerd bar, but had never quite made it out to check it out for myself. It did not disappoint. D&D themed menus. Medieval weapons on the wall. Never sports on the TVs. So beautiful! And a Game of Thrones map in the washroom.
It was not until Tuesday night that I finally felt grounded after months of focusing on getting True Loves 3 together and shows and so on. I was colouring this week’s True Loves, and still had time to go in the podcast I was enjoying so I found a photo to draw on Julia Wertz‘s website. The podcast was this episode of the Duncan Trussel Family Hour, which featured the return of Pete Holmes. Another of my favourite podcasts is his You Made it Weird. I really enjoyed their conversation, and just spaced out doing the drawing. And the next morning I felt AWESOME. Alive again. Roaring and punching the air. So that was good.
