Comic Con!

How weird. I returned to my blog after an absence to discover I had a bunch of posts set to private. Did I do that one night in a fit of editing, or was I setting them to private each time? Sometimes I confound myself.

Anyway, hello. I suppose it's been awhile. Work is, well, work. Travel is, well, non-existent. I had been determined to be quite a jet-setter this year but that hasn't come to pass. Perhaps in the second half of the year, eh?

Until I figure out how to take a much deserved vacation, I promise to be blogging more. Among my topics... tada! Comic Con! Who knew, right? I will actually be attending this year. Again: who knew?? My cousin will be there in a professional capacity and has a badge for me. I've always been intrigued by the spectacle, and as someone newly into graphic novels and indie artists and designers, I'm sort of excited! Granted I know Comic Con does not cater as widely as festivals such as MoCCA or TCAF do to the independant artists, I know there are some out there. I hope I don't get trampled by Twilight fans and Spiderman fanboys as I try to make my way to these indie artists' tables. :)

I've only been to San Diego a couple of times, and never really in the Gaslamp. I wonder what there is to do for when I need a breather from the show? :)

I spend way too many mornings scrolling though this site, simultaneously laughing and feeling sad.

Oh my.

The always lovely, well-kempt, and totally stylish Audrey over at A Lovely Escape shared this cute decor idea-- framed fortune cookie fortunes! Honestly, I read mine, laugh, and toss them in the trash but this is such a great, unique idea. Very cute.

Pretty watercolors by illustrator Bernadette Pascua.

I've recently become addicted to this site Who What Wear. Recently, Refinery 29 struck up a conversation with the site's co-founder, one Katherine Powers and visited her California home. Here's a glimpse into her at-home style. I dig it.

I love it. I look around my own cluttered apartment and though I fancy myself to have decent taste, I feel like I'd need some extensive assistant from an expert in order to stage it to look halfway as awesome as a home such as this.

Sarah Glidden Prints

Comic artist Sarah Glidden recently caught my eye.... She's a member of the Pizza Island enclave of artists in Brooklyn, and a friend of mine had recommended to me her book, How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less because I had mentioned wanting to immerse myself in some more non-fiction graphic novels (it's a great book, btw).

She's apparently selling some prints of her work on her Etsy shop. Take a look, will you?

And stop by her blog; I find her updates most interesting. :)

I just love this!

It's in Etsy seller Scottieinacanoe's shop!

Lots of other great vintage finds in there too.

Resurrecting an old blog.... again!

I feel like I only come out of the shadows just to say I'm bringing my blog back to life, only to let it fall by the wayside immediately.

No more! Promise!

"Say Trin", you may be thinking, "Where DID you go?"

Well, I was immersed in work. I worked a lot. Like, a LOT. Too much. As it turned out, while I was excited about my work, it got to be too much for too little reward. As in, I got paid poorly, and when my supervisor left and was replaced, that supervisor didn't appreciate what I was doing. Work sort of became a nightmare. Then, the production company sort of fizzled. They literally ran out of money to pay people. I am still owed, 8 months later, $3000.

Um... what else......ohhh! Yes, and I also moved. My relationship ended around the time my work ended-- while it was amicable, the whole changing-my-entire-life thing sort of stressed me out. And then what did I do? I moved! It was a knee jerk reaction to things changing so abruptly. First, to take a breather and gather my bearings, I moved to just outside of Atlanta, GA, and lived with my cousin for awhile. That was a great way to upheave my life, actually! It was like a vacation, while I plotted my next move. She owns a little coffee shop and I helped run things for awhile. Then, I did what any crafty, art-loving, self-respecting hipster would do: I moved to Brooklyn.

That's where you can find me now! I am once again logging videos and doing editorial work in a production studio (crazy hours but way better environment!), living with friends in Fort Green, traipsing around the city. Life is crazy, but it's a good crazy.

So let's get this blog off the ground again, shall we?

I feel like I've expanded to about three times my usual size after Thanksgiving.

Monica made 6 different pies for our feast. 6!

Guys, I can't even handle thinking about all that I ate. I'm spending the rest of this week on a treadmill....
