*squints miopically into the light*  
Umm, hi folks? *waves*

Sticking the RL update behind a cut, 'cause not everyone cares:

I'm a little tipsy right now, so this could be interesting :P

Wow it's been a while since I posted... a lot has been going on in my life:

- Went to Melbourne for a week - it's a very cool city, I'd never been there before. A lot of it is much like Sydney, but with less Westies. I was struck by one thing, though: Melbournians don't know how to dodge! In Sydney everyone has this little bubble of personal space that they guard with their life - you just DO NOT bump people on the street, everybody instinctually dodges everyone else, and it all works out just dandy... but not in Melbourne. People just... bash into you, it's weird...

- Saw Tool live. OMFG*flailyflail*. It was amazing, absolutely mind-blowing. Saw Muse the night before, and though incredible in their own right, they didn't hold a candle to Tool.

- Was asked to do some more convention art for Farscape - Last year the Farscape fanclub in Italy emailed me about doing some stuff for their first con. I think they saw the stuff I did for Aussie TaScape, or know someone in the local 'Scaper scene (tiny though it is lol). I did a rather rushed D'Argo picture for them, and they very awesomely sent me a print of it signed by Anthony Simcoe (their guest for the con). This year, they've got the lovely Virginia Hay coming, and have asked me to do a Zhaan image for them. I've never drawn Zhaan before: I'd really like to do justice to her - not just to Virginia, but also to the incredible makeup - and give these guys something really special.

- Got pilled up - realised my efforts at fighting depression on my own weren't going terribly well, and finally saw somebody about it. After fighting the idea for a while, I finally caved and decided to have a stab at medication.  Sweet monkey jebus on a pogostick, it's awesome. I haven't felt this good in years: I've spent so long knowing that I should be happy, but just not being able to feel it, and wondering why. It might not be for everyone, but it's sure working for me *happydance*.

- Worked. Xmas was it's usual evil consumerist self, but I was lucky enough to be working in the stockroom for most of it. My wonderful manager realised how close I was to either throttling the next obnoxious customer I encountered, or quitting, and so offered me a full-time gig as a stock-bitch over Xmas. It rocked: especially the day the state manager visited and we were playing Rob Zombie on the stockroom stereo - facial expression = priceless *grin*

In BeanieLantis news, I've set up some prints over on DeviantArt (who have recently introduced free prints accounts - awesome!). They do standard prints, as well as canvas, mousepads, mugs, coasters, magnets and postcards.

It's not all the images yet, just the ones that can slip through copyrights easily - ie: no recognisable insignia etc. Hopefully I'll get some more up soon, but I think I'll have to edit the images a bit (namely remove the Atlantis patches from their arms). If anyone's got any requests for images they'd like to see as prints, just drop me a comment and I'll see what I can do :)

BeanieLantis Prints

Hopefully I'll have some new images soon - I really haven't drawn much of anything in recent months, but I hope to get back on track soon :)

So glad you aren't dead! I've been worried about you.

Welcome to the pill club! *uses her bottles as maracas* Glad they're working for you.

uhm, on my own Beanielantian front, not much has happened. But I tend to be a slow worker, so it's not really anything to worry about.

Aww! *feels the love* :D

LOL - I'm the queen of slow working: I made a cast of a friend's belly while she was pregnant, and I finally got it to her for the baby's 1st birthday... kid'll be in kindergarten by the time I make the little hoodie I've promised LMFAO! :P
