So 2012 is over.

Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish.
lissa_quon: (deadhead)
Sorry for radio silence I have been busy either working or being ill. I got sick a few weeks ago and was in bed for a good week or so trying to shake it. Even now I'm still fighting some congestion and coughing fits.

Then the holiday season for retail started up and so I haven't had much time to post here due to work.

This is just a reminder that Foolish Mortal has a print store - while I haven't had a chance to update it; if there is anything that you've seen here on the blog or posted on the Deviant Art page that you would like to purchase feel free to drop me a line and we can probably work something out.
lissa_quon: (hmm)
So like I promised an art post.



This is part of a series that I guess I'm working on.

Greetings internet.

Once again sorry for the internet silence. I tend to have a bad habit of wandeirng off and getting wrapped up in things.

Not much to report. I'm hilariously in a bit of a rut again. Around this time last year I was unemployed and getting to the end of my rope. Shortly after that things started looking up. I had a job, some steady pay, and Plans for the Future.

Now I'm damn near unemployed and sort of getting glimpses of that rope again. All my plans fell to the way side, anything that looked like it might work out has fallen apart and I feel like I've just run a full circle. At least this time I have a working scanner, which is an improvement from last year.

I might soon get back to The Project that got set aside in the flurry of broken tech, holidays, retail during the holidays, family drama, various medical emergencies, the great moving fake out, con season, and something that might have been a minor break down. 2012 sort of kicked me around pretty hard.

I also get really shy about showing off anything I write. I write - I create - I world build and spin little stories. I can show you drawings of it all until I'm blue in the face and have no concerns. The second I start trying to explain who these people are or what they do, I get nervous and clam up. I get scared that I write badly, that nothing makes sense, that no one will read it, that they'll read it and hate it. These are actually problems I'm working on in some fashion or other.

That said I haven't really had much to post on here. I do not believe in airing out my problems and right now I've got little else to share. So like I said - please forgive the radio silence. I'll try to get an art post up soon.

Right now as it stands Foolish Mortal and Co. are scheduled for:


Aggie-Con- Bryan College Station - March 23-25th

We'll be in the Dealers Room selling prints and buttons and commissions and other snake oil.
I'll also probably have some stuff thrown in the Art Show.
So if you want to own some original Foolish Mortal paintings this could be your chance.



Comicpalooza - Houston - May 25-27th -

We'll be in the Artist Alley, no word on our location yet. Will update when we get more info.

A-Kon - Dallas - June 1-3rd

We had to fight off hundreds of other artists in an epic Battle Royale but we did get a table for this year's A-Kon and managed to keep most of our limbs in the process.

UPDATE - WE WILL BE IN THE UPSTAIRS SECTION - look for us up in section E

San Japan - San Antonio - August 10-12th

The Apprentice managed to survive another epic registration battle royale and scored another table.
Yet another Texas con, (you totally can't tell we live here), this will be out first time attending this con so I'm excited to see how this goes.

More information to be added as I get it.


I'll post more as I get them ironed out.

So it's been a while since an update in here. I decided to fix that.

I survived my con season so far. Not much to say since it all sort of forms a blur. Doing two large consecutive conventions will do that to you I suppose. Thankfully I've got until August to rest, restock and recuperate.

I will say they went very well. Well mostly things went alright, one day I might share the story of The Business Card Debacle and the Tale of the Executive Suite That Never Was. But other than a few hiccups I had lots of fun and met lots of awesome folks. I also drew a lot of ponies. Boy howdy the amount of ponies we drew. It was sort of a relief to come home and draw stuff I wanted to do that was very much NOT a pony.

Speaking of ponies here's any art post.

Welp greetings - not much going on here. Still trying to stay sane and work. Also trying to stay focused on the work I need to do, instead of what I want to do. This is actually very difficult for me right now.

It feels like I'm spinning so many plates right now. And of course me being me - part of coping with my plate spinning is adding silly stuff I WANT to work on to my work pile

With that said lets have an art post.


For starters have a sad Ned Stark pony.
I can not guarantee that much else underneath this cut will be better. )

Anyways that's all I got for right now. I need to back to work on commission stuff tommorow. So while I'm still up I'm off to work on silly things I want to work on that no one will want to see or buy.

So I declared today a mental health day and worked on some personal stuff today.

So we have an art post tonight,


Drew this yesterday on a whim after reading a few too many political newsletters about how contraceptives and abortion with destroy life as we know it.

Me being me vented and translated this into steampunk gynobots.
Sadly this probably won't get finished, I got her innards designed and then realized I couldn't get her face right, or figure out what the mechanic looked like.

and something actually finished and not vaguely political beneath the cut )

Anyways thats all for now, I think I'm going to go to bed now and collapse.

Alright so now that I have my mea culpa's out of the way, lets have an art post.

First off, have an ATC I worked on after OD-ing on Game of Thrones.



Click on for bigger and better things )

Welp that's all I got now, that's fit for human consumption. There will another post of more stupid stuff...at some point in the future. Not sure when exactly.

Sorry for lack of updates. I think 2012 will probably be marked as "The Year Lissa ran around in circles trying to accomplish so much and achieving so little." I've been working my part time job, working on the commission pile and trying to do as much as I can for con prep (most of this time is spent brain storming and then gnashing teeth.)

I've got a lot more riding on this con season than my usual mix of sanity and hope. I've thrown my lot in with a few friends who have decided to pool their limited funds together to try to rent a place to live in at the end of the summer. While this is more economical than just moving out on our own, this still requires some capital. So I'm doing what I can to raise my funds - the only way I know how. Sadly the only way I know how to is to draw things and pray folks want them.

So for the TL;DR crowd. Lissa hasn't updated since she is busy trying to raise funds to move out, and has little of interest in life happening worth reporting.

So I'm sitting here at 6 in the morning listening to cheery cheery Jazz music while nursing my printers along to try to bulk up my print stock. My to-do list is miles long and I have no idea where it ends. Con season is here, and it is here in full force.

Me and the apprentice have a convention at the end of next week. We (at least I was I do not know about the apprentice) are sort of caught flat footed on this since we were sitting on the waiting list fat dumb and happy, not expecting to be called, our next convention a blissful happy safe two months away. Our number got called and we couldn't come up with a reason to say no, so here we are scurrying to get everything sorted and handled. Her with school and me with my mom's doctor's appointments, my job doubling my hours for this week and other rot.

Anyways, while I'm panicking and chasing tail lets have some art posts.

And still nothing new for the print books )

Well I think I've finished up all the printing I can do for the moment. So I'm going to slump over into bed for a bit before I go out and run the 500 errands I need to run.

So there has been a wee bit of a delay between postings. Like I stated earlier 2012 pretty much has been brutal already in the 20-something days it's been here.

I've been tied up with many life problems, and probably will continue to be for the next few weeks. My mom is going in for major surgery and that is taking up a lot of my energy and concern.

That said, here's some art post I have managed to do in between panic attacks and work.

it is a bit sparse this time )

That's all I got this post, I can not guarantee any sort of post or arts anytime soon. I've got some commissions I really need to get gone by a certain deadline so I will probably be having to focus was energy I have on that.
