Post ECCC 2018

It is always hard to get motivated to do things after I do a convention (here after referred to as con.)  It is not usually the physical exertion that gets me, it is being much more extroverted that I naturally am.  I liken it to being hung over from staying out to late for a few days in a row.
Today was the “hang” over day.  I could not get my eyes to stay open until 10 am.  My spouse was even worse.  I could not get myself to cook real food or dress in “real” cloths (wearing pajamas all day FTW.)  I read the comic books I purchased.  I highly recommend Bones of the Coast.  It is anthology of horror stories that takes place in the NW. I also picked up Aaron Alexovich’s Stitched.  Cute and I cannot wait to see what happens next.  I eagerly await My Black’s Don’t Match #2 from Drew Rausch.  I just cannot seem to remember to go to the website and read it.  I much prefer the book versions anyway.  I got another anthology, short monster stories, some were cute and some were scary.  I enjoyed it but I picked it up because it was 1, an anthology 2, the cover glows in the dark and 3, Aaron Alexovich did the cover art.  I already shelved it and, being the slug I am today, do not feel like getting up to get the title.
I also acquired several books.  By acquired I mean I did not pay for them.  They were given to me or left for “dead” at the con.  The Lok by Tommy Rice, looks promising. Grunts was given to me so I could “go on a blind date with a book.”  Two others were left in the Alexandria RPG Library and have yet to be unpacked and read.  It will happen.
I got a few peaces of art.  You will want to check my Instagram @bycarissac to see what they were.  The lazy slug in me is to tired to pull them over.  I picked up stickers for the first time.  I did not have a lot of money left on Sunday and I really liked a few things by some of the artists.  I have no clue what to do with the stickers.  I am not going to put them on my laptop.  I would lose them when it dies.  I might just put them on the wall of inspiration as space filler.
I took pictures this year!  I do not usually have a brain cell left at the end of the day to do that.  I saw some awesome stuff.  I love the cosplayers.  They are artists and brave.  One year I would love to do a cosplay.  Time and money and self confidence are not on my side right now.
Time to start on a new piece of art.  I am going to work on something for a contest for the Badass Art Group over the next few days.  We have to create a monochromatic piece in purple.  My favorite color.
Night all!
