No one said what the V in V-day had to stand for. I chose velociraptor.
Happy V-day / anniversary, otacracy. I love you!  :)

Are you jelly?!

THIS IS SO PERFECT I AM SCREAMING

Alchimique, is that you and Yumedarling in the 5th pic? (With the eating of foods?!)

First off: All these individual pictures are so lovely! 

That’s me as Tsukimi in the pic with all the KBBQ but yumedarling wasn’t part of this group (she does make a very cute Kuranosuke though!). But amberemerald (Kuranosuke), mangaka-chan (Chieko), onelani (Mayaya)  ruffleshuffle (Bamba), and vesparada(Hanamori) were! 

Also Patrick Seitz at the end of the table joined us for part of that time since he worked on the American release and wanted to check it out. :) 

My friend Hye has started a tumblr too! Go follow her for cute art. :D

I need to draw more. After I claim more free space! 

Found this special fella in the store on a high shelf. I thought he was missing an eye at first.  #valentine #dog

Don’t forget! It’s good low-pressure comics fun. I usually pre-make some panels so I don’t have to think too hard. Mine from 2013 are up here as well as on the forum.
Like John Campbell said, you don’t have to draw a lot to enjoy making these. It’s a fun journaling exercise, and even really simple doodled figures can be a nice little snapshot of your day.
(On a separate note, I set physical goods &amp; digital download stores up over the weekend! Official announcement later, but open to tumblrites now :) )

Ack! At least seven of those hours will be spent at work, but maybe on my breaks I can at least jot down what to draw when I get home.

AHAHA I teach art classes on Saturday. I&#8217;m going to die but I&#8217;m going to try this.

One of my students is an Attack on Titan fan. Just a hunch.

Gahh so sorry those scans are yellow… these are super old, like from 3 years ago.  But I found these on my computer, and I figured I’d start out with something I’ve loved for a long time. ^^  Time-skip CCS is a reality in my mind… (also Eriol/Tomoyo)

CUTIES EVERYWHERE. 

FRANDS.

Follow my friend Alice! She’s new to tumblr and is uploading her artwork to share WITH THE WORLD.

I’m loving her Card Captor Sakura stuff atm. 

Back from Anime Los Angeles 2014

Back from ALA and hello to all my followers old and new!  If you swung in here because you came by my booth in artist alley, thank you very much! I’m so happy that my art made you happy one way or another (since many also gave me sad faces about the Mami print. Haha…)

Anyways, I am Val and I am a 20-something gal living in southern California! I cosplay, roleplay, and do illustrations of various things. I also am a contributor to Defective Geeks, a lady geeks blog and podcast. 

I’ve been a huge anime/manga fan since the 90s but I love both retro and recent anime. And magical girls! 

Right now there’s lots of reblogs on my blog between art but I’m planning to organize it a little better. 

I did some chibi art to add to my selection for this artist alley but what I really wanted to do was either an Ace Attorney or a Kaiji print. I didn’t have time for ALA to really get a composition I liked but perhaps Anime Expo is a better deadline since my work schedule is kinda crazy these days. 

My fandoms (the short version):

Current: Ace Attorney, Attack on Titan, Free!

Forever loves: Code Geass, FKMT, Fullmetal Alchemist, Nadia, Rumiko Takahashi series

Cheers to you all. <3
