I've been working like crazy for the APF. I think that I'm going to have about 140 cards in stock! There's going to be cards for all sorts of games. I don't know that much about any other card games besides MTG. I have some cards that have Yu-Gi-Oh pictures and I have made a bunch of Pokemon cards. I will also have a few cards that reference video games, and some awesome playmats.
I am going to be arriving in Birmingham at some point on Thursday. The Festival will last from Friday to Sunday.
So I've been hanging out in Daytona Beach, Florida waiting for the SCG Orlando and just having a mini vacation. I started working on Shadow Boxes. They are coming out amazing! The first one that I did was this Iona artwork.
I really like how it turned out. As always it's kinda hard to get the 3D-ness to show up in a still shot photo. I'm planning on doing something that isn't totally Mtg related for the Alabama Phoenix Festival because of variety of people that will be there.
I finishes a couple of playmats for this weekend too. My favorite on is the 'Most Interesting Man' one that I did.
I figured that it was appropriate with the new miracle mechanic from the newest set. As of right now I have 4 other playmats that will be at my table in Orlando this weekend. I'm going to try to get another My Little Pony playmat made, because I love having one on my table.
If anyone has ideas for shadow boxes or for funny playmats let me know. I love hearing what you all have to say!
So I just came back from Providence RI this Monday. I had a great time there! The people there were awesome. I went to a store called The Temple. ( http://www.thetemplegames.com/tg/) The store had a really cozy feel and the people were very nice. I believe every Friday the store owner cooks hotdogs and hamburgers for the FNM'ers for free.
I now have all of my pending commissions in the mail. So if you ordered something from me lately it should be on it's way!
The next event that I'm going to be at is Orlando Fl. Then I'm going to the Alabama Phoenix Festival in Birmingham Al. I am going to try to have a bunch of cards and playmats for these events. I am providing a playmat and 3D card for the Alabama Phoenix festival.
I need to make some cards that deal with Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh. If anyone has ideas for these card games please let me know.
I had a great time at the Birmingham SCG open. I got to meet a bunch of new people. I've never had a Magic event in Alabama before so this was something new. When I was planning my trip I thought that it was going to be a 16 hour drive, so I planned on leaving Thursday and driving through the night. I had everything packed and ready to go and then I found out it was only an 11 hour drive from where I lived. Which made the trip even better.
On Saturday I forgot my camera so I wasn't able to take any pictures. There was a guy who commissioned a baby Jace that came out amazing and I wish I could have taken a picture of it. However I do have a picture of the Conley Woods tokens that I made. I really like how they came out.
I also was invited to go to the Alabama Phoenix Festival in May. I will be located in the Gaming building. Also, I will be contributing to the prize of the Magic tournament. This convention looks like it is going to be a bunch of fun. If you think that you'll be in the Birmingham area May 25-27 you should defiantly check it out.
