    Made it home! I'd like to give a special thanks to TSA at DFW for doing such a stellar job of damaging my models after I'd asked them to be gentle... Otherwise all is well.
  2. Very last minute but I am 100% in again if I can be. 🙂
  3. Arrive: Wednesday, Aug 31st, at DFW airport around 7pm Leave: Monday, Sept 5th, around 8-8:30 am for an 10:56am flight. Embassy Suites hotel. Sadly I think that timing means I miss the Meet and Greet. but if anyone has cooincidental times and wants to Uber - that'd be cool!
  4. Who are you calling paranoid? It's me right? You're all talking about me!!! But really I do love Friend Computer and will endeavour to be the best clone I can be.
  5. This was a great video and I'm so glad to see Scott go back to this kind of content. What I found interesting and have experienced taking on commissions was this sense that even when you think you know what you're going to do on a piece (he points out he's already done models for that faction at the start). The scheme evolves as he goes. Like he said, I think the reverse might have been a bit more interesting but one key thing for a lot of painters is how effective leaving parts of the model black can be. Scott is not a fast painter as he's said before but for many folks that first model is already a great result for the table top. Going back down the ladder, I'm sure he'll produce a stunning ten minute model
  6. I'm so glad you liked it!!! Also +1 on Daiso - absolutely incredible store for hobbyists.

    We did ~500 on Sunday then just pushed through on Monday to get back to Cali. Flying is definitely looking to win out next year. Great to meet you as well!!!

    Do not recommend driving 1200 miles in a day... Even when you earn 'bonus hours' by driving West... Home safe none the less! Think I'll fly next year 😂
  9. This was my first Reaper Con so I think my perspective is more comparative to other cons than post years. Generally there is a wealth of accessible activities and everyone is super friendly. Stock levels for most vendors and the bucks store were a bit of an issue but I think this was a product of it being 2021 more than anything else. The vendors I spoke to seemed to be selling well beyond expectations. As an artist in the alley I have to say it felt a bit of a weird space. I don't know of any other con that runs this in quite the same way. Many of us artists are not pros and not using the con as a business venture buy rather teaching for love and so being seated at a table in a relatively quiet section of the hall is often less appealing than hanging out with our friends. Many of the artists this year also added extra classes due to how quickly things sold out. so were even busier than usual. I actually loved having a dedicated space to sit and paint but also felt weird about feeling tied there - like going to a paint and take or chatting with friends was against the spirit of the thing. I don't really know how to address that. Maybe have a smaller alley with artists there for scheduled windows? But then I don't know if the pros want a permanent presence... I definitely missed a big closing event. Not sure an auction appeals to me but something to close out would've been great. A map in the booklet would've really helped as would more communication outside of twitch but these are fairly minor for me.
  10. I'll be pretty much at my table in artist's alley all day tomorrow or chatting to other artists for anyone that's still missing me on their bingo... Or missing my wit, charm and British accent whichever 😜
  11. Risk of water damage adding a new dimension to forum bingo!
  12. Hey y'all I'll be at my table on artist's alley the rest of the evening. Fancy check mark if you apply alcohol 😜
  13. We're on our way! Been making a few stops en route...
