Comic Conventions

Man, I really wish I signed up for SDCC this year, but I WILL ( and I must, my precious…) sign up to attend it next year, hopefully with an artist table.

But I still have CTNx this year in Burbank Nov 21-23, which I’m sharing a table with my friend Phylecia Thompson: http://artbyphylecia.tumblr.com/

And I haven’t heard back from APE con Oct 4-5 in San Francisco, but I sent in registration for that recently. So we’ll see.

And for 2015, I have lined up a lot more cons since I was successful in my tester run so far this year, and I already have confirmation for Wizard World Cons:

Portland - Jan 23-25, 2015

Sacramento - June 19-21, 2015

San Jose - Sept 4-6, 2015Also sent in registration for WonderCon 2015! and will do San Diego CC as well. If anyone has some requests for Cons in California (or close to California) let me know! ^_^

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

13 out of 36…

23 out of 36

Your score on this test was 30 out of 36.

I got 35 out of 36, which might be my best test result since I was 14. I bet a lot of comic artists would score really highly on this test since it’s all about facial expressions. Pretty interesting!

I was hoping for a higher score, but I did get 30 out of 36.  I would think animators would really score high on this.

here’s a little preview of the chibi Game of Thrones piece I’m working on.
Chibi Daenerys!!!! i’ll probably offer shirts and prints etc of some of the characters by themselves, but the official giant piece with all of them will be a while from now. ^_^

UPDATES! Woo-hoo!Hey Everyone!  So I know I&#8217;m not quite as active as I used to be (mainly cause I&#8217;ve been working a lot to pay the bills ) But here&#8217;s some updates on things I&#8217;m working on/ finished recently, even if sometimes I can&#8217;t post updates on it quite yet.  1. &#8220;As You Wish&#8221; Print - Feeling Blue this last week meant watching The Princess Bride, and decided to spend the last weekend painting for fun. Prints available on society6.com http://society6.com/nicolemales
(also put up my little chocobo sketch up there too! ^_^) 2. &#8220;Hershey the Hungry Dog&#8221; - A kids book i&#8217;m working on about my family&#8217;s dog who ate everything that was edible. I&#8217;m in the sketch and painting stage. There&#8217;s posts on my tumblr Plan is to self-publish, sell online and at cons. http://nicolemadelineales.tumblr.com/ 3. &#8220;Destiny of the Marked&#8221; - if some of you have been following a while, you know this project has been on and off for a while. I&#8217;m in the re-writing stage&#8230;again, but here&#8217;s some issue covers and main character painting. It&#8217;s going to be a long term, on-going series, which is probably why the first episode just never feels right. What if I set it up wrong??!?! OMG! *freaks out*  The main jist is a young woman discovers the supernatural from another world, while dealing with her Mother&#8217;s illness. (lots of coming of age stuff in there and spookies- and taps into how I felt, and dealt, with death at a young-ish age when my own Mom passed away, which is why it&#8217;s also difficult to write, but I feel it might help others going through similar stuff). http://dotmcomic.tumblr.com/ Well that&#8217;s it! Hopefully I&#8217;ll post more regularly in the future! Stupid life..

UPDATES! Woo-hoo!
