Thanks for all the welcome backs from my vacation! Makes me feel special indeed! It was tough going back to work since 6 days off isn’t enough!! Plus, we were so busy having fun that I need a vacation from my vacation.XD I have today off though so that’ll be good because I need time to catch up with some artworks time…having done anything in that department in a loooong time. My pal, Angie and I came up with this great idea for a short manga that was inspired from us going to the Renaissance Festival. We thought it would be a cool story if an elf from the real “Renaissance” time happened to go through a portal or something and ended up in the middle of a Renaissance Fest here in today’s time. Here he is, thinking he’s just in another village but then he’s seeing cameras and weird clothing and fairy wings for sale and weird food items, etc. etc. and trying to figure out what’s going on and what these “contraptions” are. We thought it would be cool since Tokyopop holds a short manga contest every year and that would make a good story but we came up with enough ideas to make this into a long-running manga too if we got enough fans. So yeah, I was going to come up with some concept art for the main elf character and stuff. Should be fun!
Anyhoo, I thought I’d share a few pictures I took on my vacation. This first one is the outside of the Eastern State Penitentiary (considered one of the most haunted places in the country), I think the building itself is all cool and Castle-like:
The door closest to my camera is the one that started shaking as I walked past it (more details on that ghostly experience in my last post):
For those who watched ‘Ghost Hunters’ on Sci-Fi, the walkway on the right is where they caught the black form walking towards the camera:
I have tons of pictures from the Renaissance Fest but here’s one that I thought was cool…it comes from one of the acrobat shows performed:
This last picture is SO one of my favorite pictures ever. We got a guy to get a picture of all of us at the Ren. Fest and I love it since I consider this group my closest friends and it’s super rare that all of us are together at once:
