Art Suplies

I swung by Jerry's Artist Outlet in West Orange, just to check out what they had in stock. Ended up picking up a bunch of supplies for almost dirt cheep.

Canvas panels: 12 6x8 for $0.72 each, 12 8x10 for $0.88 per, 12 9x12 for $1.01 each. All told I paid $31.32, which at list price it would have cost me $69.00. How could I not buy em?

Oil Paint: 38mL tube of Alizarin crimson for $2.99, list price $6.25

I am definately going to keep an eye on this place and keep and the other open for sales and discounts.

DragonCon Aftermath vol. 1

Dragon*Con is over and I am exhausted. I had a fantastic time, but it took a lot out of me. Handed out most of the portfolio teasers in person, left a couple of stacks around various places around the con.

If you are visiting from a business card or a booklet that you got while at the Convention, welcome. I'm going to be making a list of all the people I got cards or fliers once I get home and sort through it all. Pictures will be up on Flickr about the same time.

In other news, car's in the shop. Transmission was rattling, next the battery's acting up and power steering is gone. Then the engine starts over heating.

Turns out that the problem was a worn belt and busted tensioner. Should be fixed up sometime today or early tomorrow. I ought to be on the way back to NJ in the next day or two.
