moratory [adjective]

(MAWR-uh-tawr-ee) - authorizing delay of payment

that's weird. i woulda thought that word had something to do with death. i learn new things every day! =)

as we gear up for another out of town event, i just realized i never posted last month's Supergirl: Last Daughter of Krypton radio show cover for this would be for episode #47. it really did have a person in a cow suit protesting a burger joint in the story. i didn't make it up! =P now why the chibis? i dunno. i was inspired i guess. right before i drew this, that tragedy of the tsunami in japan happened and i couldn't help but reflect on the huge influence that anime and manga has had on my art. Sailor Moon and Ranma 1/2 were really what got me started on this career path and without it, i'd probably be deeper into Human Resources and utterly depressed. and even though i am well aware that japanese culture and art have far more to offer than chibis, i just couldn't help but think of doing an homage of some form. anyways, i think it was a pretty big hit with the folks that are doing the radio show so that's always a plus! =P
speaking of the tsunami and japan, my hubby theFranchize and i are thinkin of running a commission sale down the road where 100% of the money we get from it will be donated to either American Red Cross or some Japanese relief fund. we've yet to decide and talk more in detail. but once we get that squared away, i'll be making an announcement here, deviantart, and whatever other social networks i can get my hands on. =P

like i mentioned earlier, we're heading out tomorrow on another out-of-town event for Big Heads Little Bodies Caricatures. this time we're headed to Salisbury, MD for their annual Pork in the Park BBQ competition. couldn't turn down this invitation to participate! it's gonna have lots of happy, well-fed people and hopefully we can get our hands on some of that yummy BBQ! =) all i can say is that it's a good thing i gave up beef for lent instead of pork this year. WOOHOO! we finished up all the pet expos we're attending this year. we have one more pet-related caricature event in october but that's more of a gala. nice and fancy. so before we head out, i'm just posting a few of my fav caricatures that either my hubby or our colleague/jerry's BFF bryan "the flash" turner did at these expos.

OH! and did i forget to mention that i am going to San Diego Comic Con this year with a PRO BADGE?!?! WHAAAAAT?!? hell yeah, that's totally happening. i got my approval from the con for professional status a week or two ago and i couldn't be more boosted if i tried. YAYS!
