Last weekend was one of the best I can remember in a long time!
I traveled to the spectacular Austin, TX to attend conference for TX art teachers! It is just so cool to have so many artists and art teachers in the same location! The conference was located in the convention center downtown, which also happened to be the same location as the Comic convention. This was awesome not only b/c it makes life interesting to see a group of people dressed up as characters walking around being awesome, but also because my sister’s very entertaining and talented boyfriend and his friend had a booth there for their comics (http://skweegieisland.blogspot.com/) so I got to spend time with my sister and experience that a little bit. While in Austin, (besides art workshops) I attended a trained cat circus (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tuna-and-The-Rock-cats/84494939571), saw a band that plays video game music on guitar/bass/flute/drums, and ate at a restaurant where the likes of Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa, and loads of other cool people played back in the day! I must say, it was hard to come back to Houston after the amazing-ness of Austin. Here are a few pics:
