The title surely doesn't describe what you 'might' think. 8D
Not too long, I wish it would've been longer.
But this is how the amazing Eurofurence went past this year and I'm still trying to rebound from the everlasting Post Con Depression that hit me more than hard. And I must say that this year's Eurofurence was the best I ever experienced so far, because of all the amazing people I got to spend time with and because I often took time to simply roam the convention and not to curl up in the artist alley to miss out on the greatness.
Thanks to simply everyone who came by my table to buy prints, commissions, honey and mead (hope you liked it! I drank half a bottle and was trashed)! <3 I still got plenty of homework to do which is stacked on my table right next to me. I will make sure to make the waiting time justice.
Thank you so much for your incredible patience, for your support and for the love.
This EF was the most intense for me as I felt I never got involved into the community so much before. To all the ones, and there were so many, who came by to hug and greet me, to have a short or longer chat, the ones who got to know me in real for the very first time, I'm simply blown away by your kindness and for the huge recognition! Thank you!
The convention comprised many huge and mezmerizing events of which I feel so happy to have either been a small part of or simply for attending to witness what can be realised when there is a great team that works together with all efforts.
I simply must mention the event Bitter Lake that has simply blown me away. I rarely forget to blink so to make sure not miss out one single amazing detail.
The outcoming of the project is worth more the enjoyment you get when you watch the movie and listen to the complement soundtrack composed by FoxAmoore - you can actually see the endeavour and the striking love the entire team put into the project and all I can do here is to congrat all the members of the Bitter Lake team for creating and realising something awesome as this!
Thanks a lot for the inspiration!
Also the Kung Fur Hustle show has knocked my socks off! Not only that the martial arts input was absolutely striking but it also shows how much courtesy Eurofurence has to make such an amazing show that is fully dedicated to Charity. I also got involved a little (for the ones who saw it, it was quite fun XD) plus I had the chance to get to know Jim Martin, who has a tremendously inspiring mind and who always popped up with great ideas and visions.
The world needs more crazy minds that have the power to make it even more colourful.
Another big surprise was the Artshow Manager's Choice ribbon placed above I am Here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the feature. <3
As incomplete as I am, I think the image was, too. I'm soon going out to find a frame that truly suits the original painting. I hope I can carry this image along with me to make a longer and bigger journey soon.
As well as roaming the convention, getting to know wonderful peeps and sometimes having way too many drinks, I got to hang around mostly with FoxAmoore and Osfer to have inspiring ideas that gave me shivers. Thanks a bunch for all the lovely ideas, visions and Amarula. ;3
It can't be any sweeter than every idea and conversation we came up with!
Plus I think I experienced the most epic thunderstorm in front of the hotel with you guys!
And a big thank you to Kebi and Ardent for their endeavour to provide us artists with coffee and breakfast during the Dealer's Den! We surely wouldn't have survived it without you sweethearts! x)
Thanks, Cheetah & Nightfox as well as all the members of staff for yet another striking Eurofurence!
I would make a huge list of icons of all my friends and people I met again/for the very first time, but my time is running out as I need to get my stuff packed for a huge Scotland trip that starts off tomorrow.
I'm actually going to gather real life refs for the comic "Myre" and already collected a bunch of proper equipment to hopefully get out the best of what I see there. My mind will again play tricks on me, seeing the actual characters cross the landscape and playing a real visionary movie in front of my eyes.
More stuff is yet to come! Stay tuned! Stay inspired!
A big thanks to all of you and much love!!! <3<3<3
