(no subject)

I really need to get a new set of icons going on here. These ones are random and painful like...2006.

I'm not sure what best to post, so I'm gonna just...start with a basic intro post. And feel free to ask questions! I love talking about my self!

So my name is Terra Necessary. I live with my wife Be and roommie/bff Sarah, and the three of us make up the Atomic Pixies. We have been selling art in some form or another at cons since around like...2005? Awhile. Right now we focus on art nouveau style prints, and working on getting our comic going. We live in a suburb outside of Denver with a lot of cats and a lone dog. I'm originally from the Mojave in southern California, but have live in Colorado the majority of my life.

I work with kiddos a lot and love it! Through Pop Culture Classroom/Denver Comic Con I do reach out to teach kids things like literacy and basic math skills through helping them create comics and board games. I also work in Family Preservation, making sure kids get to visit their parents and/or siblings while in the system.

Fandom wise right now my life has been consumed by Yuri!!! On Ice because fuck 2016 all I want it gay ice skaters. I also really loved Westworld, and am still sorta in my return to weeb stage of life with rereads of a bunch of Clamp serise and a greatly slowed Naruto rewatch. And I've been working hard on upping my coming reading, especially more fringe stuff (So, a lot of Image) and enjoying that (Pretty Deadly has my heart right now.) I've also been trying to read romance novels so I can write romance novels (probably for Kindle) and....man. I have had issues finding something good.

Right now I am working on a bunch of art for Colorado Anime Fest (We have 2 steven universe pieces, FMA< an Akatsuki, and a YOI one planned) and THEN I am trying to get like 35 drag queens drawn, plus a handful more of prints for Ru Paul's Drag Con in April I AM SO EXCITED. It has been way too long since I have been in So Cal, and I am staying with our bffs in LA, and seeing two other bffs at the con. One I rarely get to see and one I haven't seen since she left denver. I'm just...really excited.

My life goal right now is to try to start getting money and debt under control, and get moved to the west coast. Probably around Chico or Redding, or somewhere in that 5 corridor. I have a good support system of friends in No Cal, and then more friends and family all up and down the coast. But my wife is chronically ill, and we need disability to come in before I think we can do more than just tread water. Still, I'm really happy that treading water is getting to be a comfortable normal.

I feel like I recognize that art handle; you guys wouldn't have been at GeekGirlCon in October, would you?
myrmidon: ([at;] fuck yeah do the thing!)

Ugh, it's such a good con. Probably my favorite out here every year. I thought I bought art from you guys though, and I was right. What a weird small world.

(And that's entirely fair, the election screwed up a lot.)

Yuri!!! on Ice was a good thing about 2016, it is true. Also, is there such a thing as a good romance novel? (I kid... kind of.)

What kind of board games do you help the kids make? That sounds really cool.

Ooh, I just googled you guys and your art is really nice! STALKING ON TUMBLR NOW.

I'm slowly working on my backlog of things I need to watch/play/read/etc but YoI is on that list so ... soon! And you remind me I need to add a lot of Clamp to that list.

And good luck with the life stuff! Adulting is hard, but I'm glad you feel comfortable at least. ♥

I think the only Clamps I've read are xxHolic and Legal Drug? And I don't think I finished either (tho iirc they hiatused the latter and never started again? Or something?) So I have ... many choices, so rec away!

Also, let's talk romance novels and YOI sometime! I work with digital books, 80% of which are romance so maybe I can help you find some good stuff?

LOL I have had those realizations come upon me as well. Most recently with Gravity Falls. I had been seeing gifs everywhere and only watched the series last fall. Suddenly everything clicked.

Yeah we should definitely chat. What genre of romance do you prefer? Historical, contemporary, paranormal, etc. We have a little of everything, though some genres we only have in our backlist (like sci-fi romance & YA)

I have History Maker stuck in my head and I don't mind. I love this show so much.

HAAAHAHAA YESSSS I love it.

I LOVE THAT SHOW

I'm not, really but I can go on to chat with you, just probably not until late tomorrow or sometime on Sunday/Monday. This is a crazy busy weekend for me.
