   Its been two months, where have you been, what the hell are you doing?
Its true, I don't think I've updated a new piece of art in two months. So what have I been doing you ask? S A K U R A C O N! ! !

For those who don't know Sakura Con is the 8th largest anime convention in the world and Seattle's one and only Anime convention. Being that this convention is my only local outlet into the world of Anime it means a lot to me every year. This year I am going for the gold. As you all might know I am teaching the Photoshop and Website Seminars at the convention, but what you don't know is that I have entered the Mascot Design contest and the AMV contest! On top of that I am selling prints in the Art Show!

WOW! Any way the deadline for submissions for all the Sakura Con Contests is Feb 28th. I just submitted my 3rd Mascot entry 15 minutes ago! It was such a taxing part for me to do. I really want to do well in the competition and the competition is extremely hard to win so I thought why not triple my chances and make three mascots? Each one took over 20 hours to complete and each is unique in its own way but also supports the conventions Spring theme and unique genres of anime. Talk about really expanding your horizons.

On top of all that my friend and I entered the AMV contest last year and won our catagory. This year he didn't want to enter and he was the brains behind the last one but because of our success last year I made my own AMV this year. Its include Haurhi Suzumiya and the songs are from the Across the Universe Soundtrack. It isn't amazing but I hope its good enough for competition this year.

Finally I've been doing school work and launching a new version of my website Space-Cowboy.tv I am also taking 19 credits this quarter which is my second to last quarter before I graduate college with a degree in graphic design and new media!

You know what . . . I think I'm just going to pass out. Lol, Any way for those of you wondering where I've been I hope this explains it. I still have a long way to go before the convention too. I need to finish my classes in school. Continue my job. Prepare old work for sale. Make new work for sale. And prepare my teaching materials for the Seminar.

Sakura Con is going to be a very big deal for me this year, its fun and challenging but because I am teaching this year its also professional experience for me. Wish me luck! I've got a hockey game tonight then I'm going to pass out and hopefully wake up in time for work tomorrow.

Yay, finally I finished my new version of Space-Cowboy.tv. It requires the flash player but I think its really cool. I would love to hear feedback on it if you guys have time. Here is the link.

As for the whoops, the links that I have above with direct links to fan art here and desktops here well . . . I forgot to load those images onto the server during the transfer so I'll get those up asap.

Can't wait to hear your guys' opinion.

   Sakura Con
Well its official now so I imagine I should announce it. For anyone that is going to Sakura Con in Seattle, March 28-30th, you should come to my two seminars.

I am going to be hosting two how to panels at this years Sakura Con! The first one is a how to guide to anime and photoshop. If you like my style or have a style of your own that you want to adapt for the computer I can help you. I have 7 years experience with Photoshop and at least 4 years doing anime. I'm really excited about teaching this year! I hope to see some Otakuites at this panel if you guys can make it, it would make my day!

Second panel I am teaching at Sakura Con is a how to panel on making your own miniature fan website for that favorite show you just can't get enough of. This is going to be a bit more difficult to teach in an hour but I promise that when you leave you'll be able to have something up on the web about your favorite anime show and you'll have me as a resource for life.

I'm involved in a couple other things at Sakura Con that I will announce later on but as for now . . . YAY, I'm so excited to be a presenter. I really hope I can meet some of you at the convention and most importantly I hope you all can learn something from me. After the convention I'll post my teaching materials on here so everyone who is interested can enjoy! Well back to work for me, this whole month is devoted to preparing for Sakura Con!

Between now and then I have to complete the hardest quarter in college I've ever had. lol I don't know what I am going to do.
