I love work. But, work is work. Trying to keep work from keeping me from making work. Make it work

This last froggies post is dedicated to the amazing assistants that I had a chance to work with. Jeremy Menard, Brandon Sanderson, Michelle St. Vrain, Laura H. Drapac, Brian Dunn, David Gerhard, Nic Jenkins, Kate MacNeil, Adam Peterson, Elise Robbins, Rob Stephens, Anh Ta and Richard Wenrich, I couldn’t have asked for a better group to work alongside. Thank you for working your asses off, for embracing the Frogman’s craziness, for late nights in the studio, for eating all the seaweed snacks I so didn’t want anymore, for 3 nights of Star Wars drinking games, for dragging me on stage to sing the best/worst karaoke songs known to man, and for being the best #machoprintbabes ever. Our crew is a serious contender with the Lord of the Rings cast for being Team Awesome and damn, I feel lucky to say that.

Oh yeah, MAPC!
So it’s been over two weeks since MAPC, but I thought I’d share a few pictures anyway. This is the first conference I’ve attended since working for Gamblin Artists Colors so the interactions I had were a lot different from when I was only promoting myself as an artist.
First night started off well as The Print Factory printed and gave away prints at the opening reception. (They printed with Gamblin’s Quinacridone Red and Portland Intense Black relief inks, by the way :)
Glenn and I got inky with visitors to our booth and for the first time ever Gamblin sold apparel. I ordered color-mixing coveralls as giveaways for a raffle, doubting if folks would even be interested, and to my surprise people loved them! (Gamblin will be raffling them off at every conference from now on. We’ll also be sticking them in an upcoming webstore.)
The Bump It Mafia portfolio I participated in last fall was on display in the themed portfolio exhibits. (Mine’s second row, last column) I’m still so proud of my friends who put it together and of all the talented ladies who participated.
I didn’t get to show work in the Open Portfolio sessions this year which is my loss because it was rockin’. Next time, next time…
One of the most exciting parts was during the flight from Cape Girardeau to St. Louis where I got to sit in the co-pilot seat of an 8 person plane. It was one of the few times I’ve stayed awake for a trip that lasted over an hour!
