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.
