Much to say in this long-awaited post! It’s been so long that I had forgotten the RandomSunshine.net domain had expired earlier this month and I had to renew and wait three days before reactivating it on Tumblr again. Oh, silly domain. Anyway, more updates and today’s doodle after the jump!
It’s been over a month since my last post?! Well, that’s just unacceptable!
Truth be told, I’ve been awfully busy the last month with life in general. That, and massive writer’s block. I have many things lined up and have much to tell about what I have done in the time I was away including what I worked on for the second Side Project post! I did yet another piece for the San Diego Natural History Museum (also referred to as “theNAT” which will come into play later in this post) to coincide with their newest exhibition all about insects! More after the jump…
When I’m not creating random drawings for my own amusement (and occassionally for a certain red-haired comedian), I work part-time at the San Diego Natural History Museum in Visitor Services (AKA the Front Lines/The First Person You See When You Enter). Last summer, I was approached by the museum art director to tackle on a special project: work on an old pencil sketch and color it digitally.
Anime Los Angeles 2013 has come and gone with the first Artist Alley event for the new year. This was my second time at ALA and along with fellow comrades Mylene and Lester (their first time at the event); we braved the crowds and set up shop at Artist Alley. Despite me arriving on Day 1 fighting a cold (which I do NOT recommend doing; I looked like death on Day 1) and a number of small snafus, we managed to make it through the three-day event and make it nothing less of amazing.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out on the Interwebs!
*Pictured above is a Kid Conan drawing I did for Team Coco featuring sidekick Andy Richter and La Bamba of the Basic Cable Band last year. It was used last year as a commercial bumper and was used again on last Monday’s episode (12/17/2012). Thanks, Team Coco!!
Before signing off to enjoy the holiday, a quick announcement! I will be heading up to Anime Los Angeles in January for Artist Alley! I was on their Wait List for about two months and finally got the invite to sign up earlier this month. I will be with fellow art comrades and mingling with all you awesome anime fanatics so if you’ll be at the LAX Marriott, come on by! I’ll have more info when we get closer to the event (which is in two week!) so be on the lookout. Until then, have a Happy Holiday and Be Merry!
After many questions and requests, I’ve finally decided to do the unthinkable! I have opened up pre-orders for the two (yes, TWO) prints featuring Kid Conan: Blimp Pilot and Jeggings. More after the jump!
These two particular pieces were what really launched Kid Conan and were on display at the NYCOCOMoCA gallery and are currently on view at the digital version of the COCOMoCA. They have also been featured as bumpers on CONAN in the past and the Jeggings drawing was used as a vending machine design used during the CONAN’s week of shows in Chicago.
Right now, I’m taking pre-orders for both prints and am currently looking into an online print shop to get them done. I have it set for a limited print run but will be more than happy to increase it should the demand for it rise. Click on the following links to learn more about each item and to pre-order - Kid Conan Blimp Pilot and Kid Conan in Jeggings.
As an added bonus, all small and mid-sized prints are now on sale! Look for the “On Sale” banner attached to certain prints to receive a very sweet discount. For prints and all other items, head on over to Random Goods to see what’s up!
So I want to start expanding and start showing off the awesome talent fans have.
Going to start off with a personal favorite, Random Sunshine.
In the Team Coco world, Venus is known for her “Kid Conan”. Her art has been featured in the Coco MoCA, Conan bumpers, and t-shirts!
Along with Conan, Andy, and the Flaming C, she also has the other Basic Cable Boys, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert! Stickers and buttons galore!
There’s also Pokemon, Anime, Team Persona, and more!
Thanks very much for the shout out!
