|Escapade: call for art!
The Escapade Art Show wants YOU to submit something this year! Everybody's got a talent and this is a great way to share the joy!
Need some ideas? Check out the Virtual Art Show on Tumblr to see some of the art from last year! (http://escapadecon.tumblr.com/tagged/Escapade-Art-Show
Mostly, we really want to see people add a fannish twist to the kinds of things they make already: recipe books, underwater woven baskets, crayon drawings on the back of cocktail napkins, etc. We're a talented group with a wide variety of interests - let's celebrate! Everybody can make art! Everybody should make art! (and then submit it to the art show! woo!)

My brother finally got around to seeing Pacific Rim last night, so I was reminded of these doodles from a couple of months ago. I was having fun with fancy watercolor brushes in Illustrator, but then apparently forgot to post them. I think they turned out pretty cute, though. :)

|WorldCon 2013 Art
I attended WorldCon for the first time this year. It was a good excuse to go to San Antonio and hang out with friends. I have a lot of thoughts on the convention ... there were good parts and bad parts but I'll leave the details for another time.
Our movie group obtained a small space in the art show. For my contribution, I did a mash-up of Chinese paper cutting styles and classic SF subjects. Enjoy!

The 37th Frameline LGBT film festival was awesome! This year was a great one for documentaries; lots of really fantastic films!
Short list of favorites here, brief reviews of everything I saw below the cut.Favorite Documentaries:
- The Secret Disco Revolution - just like it sounds, an alternative history of Disco and it's surprisingly subversive effect on culture, politics, and the music industry
- I Am Divine - a fantastic biopic of Harris Glenn Milstead, of John Waters' movie fame
- The Battle of AmFAR - all about my new hero, scientist-activist Dr Krim and her partner-in-AIDS-work, Elizabeth Taylor
- Out Here: the Queer Farmer Film Project - simple and powerful interviews with queer farmers around the country
- Interior. Leather Bar. - a thoughtful and experimental exploration of identity, sexuality, art, and perception; reminiscent of Exit Through the Gift Shop
- Ian Harvie Superhero - ridiculously funny transman stand-up comedy concert film
Burning Blue - like Top Gun, but with more realistic and tragic gaynessFavorite Short:
The Man That Got Away - singing and dancing and tragedy, oh my!( All the movies! )

|The Importance of Being Earnest
A friend I had lost touch with contacted me a few months ago with some questions about the Earnest photo book
. He and his wife had been fellow members of a writer's group type thing where we all shared our creative projects. There was a novel, a murder mystery dinner, a children's book, the Earnest book, and other projects. It was super fun and provided critical motivation and guidance for the formative stages of the book. The questions were thought-provoking and I had a surprisingly good time reliving old memories and making up answers!( Answers below the cut ... )

|SGGK: Middle English version is complete!
I finished editing the images for the Sir Gawain and the Green Knight photobook! The English translation is far from finished, but the Middle English version is done. Whew! To be entirely accurate, I actually finished editing last February, figured out printing stuff in May and the book's been available on Lulu since July of last year, but I hadn't managed to get up the gumption to make an official announcement until now. I am such a procrastinator. I know this about myself, but sometimes it's surprising how easy it is.
For that small handful of people who might actually want to own a copy, the book is available through Lulu
If you want to learn more about the project, the production diary can be found on my journal under the project_bravo
tag. Looking back at the first entry, it's hard to believe it's been 5 years since it started … time sure goes by fast! Thank you to everyone who helped with the project and also for being so patient as we continue to creep ever so slowly towards the final version.

Noah's Ark! In space! That was enough to hook me, but the story had so many fabulous surprises in store beyond the set-up. I was expecting something cracky and instead it was profound and thoughtful and wide-ranging. Deeply awesome.

Title:love on top
Pairing: Eva / Doug / Xavier
Continuing the Goon theme, here's a trio fic, with brilliant Eva point-of-view. Everyone feels completely in character and it's awesome and happy. Yay!

Title:Two Man Advantage
Pairing: Doug Glatt/Xavier LaFlamme
Summary: Eva's a nice girl, but she's not big on commitment, and it turns out that's exactly what Doug's looking for. He's just been looking in the wrong places all this time. Nobody ever accused him of being smart, after all.
Goon! I watched this movie while I was falling head first into hockey fandom last year. It's awesome! You know what else is awesome? Yuletide, for delivering new Goon fic. This one was pretty satisfying. Woo!

In a recent-ish Homestuck update
, Karkat has an extremely cute new accessory. It looks like he's alchemized his old crabtop computer with a wristwatch and created the fabulous crabwatch! It's unclear whether this recreation also has a holographic speaker crab feature, but it's pretty awesome-looking nonetheless. Fans are so awesome!
