On Saturday, Small Angry Monster and I drove up to Beacon, N.Y. and attended the Dream in Plastic Custom Toy Show opening reception. We had tons of fun, met lots of cool peeps, saw a variety of art, and devoured cupcakes. Ok, specifically, I devoured cupcakes. A plethora, as it were. It's a weakness, I tell you! A WEAKNESS! Regardless of the presence of cupcakes, I'm glad to have taken the trek. ^.^
Carbon Fibre Media and Argonaut Resins provided tons of positive O'Bot feedback. I was given the green light to post a small sneak preview:

I've also put money down on a table! It's official! I = vendor at Chiller! Haha, this next part is sad but true. I'm super, uber excited for this because it gives me an excuse to do Halloween-related artsy stuff well before October.
Ok, all. I have a dentist appointment this afternoon and need some time to gather my strength to show up.
Haha, you think I'm kidding. Well, I am.
There may or may not be tranquilizers involved.
You all have a great day! Stay nerdy and remember to wash your paint brushes in cold water only! Otherwise you'll weaken the adhesive that keeps the bristles in the brush, and they'll less likely to be perfect and neat and smooth and more like your hair when you've taken a shower and fell asleep before it had time to dry.
Yeah. Like that.
