I'm running my own convention: RAMSCon! It's a small one-day affair. The best part is Tiffany Grant is the guest and she'll be doing a panel.

Voting for SXSW 2012!I've submitted a proposal for SXSW Interactive 2012: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/9447
Public voting for it has begun. Please go there and vote it up! The competition this year is even more heated than before!
SXSW Interactive 2011Here the details on my presentation:
Name: Interactive Comics: Techniques to Enhance Math Education
When: 5-6 PM, Friday, March 11
Where: Rio room, Hilton Garden Inn, 500 N IH 35
I don't get to present at the main site (the convention center), but I'm hoping interested folks will make the trek of a couple blocks.
My presentation is in pretty good shape. I'm sprinkling a variety of webcomic templates throughout to add a bit of pizazz to the slides. It helps that everything I'm presenting on is material I've discussed before, though never all at once like this. Overall, I think it'll go well!
SXSW 2011!The Create a Comic Project will be giving a presentation at SXSW Interactive 2011 in March! This is a major milestone for the project and a fitting way to celebrate its coming 5th year. More details as I have them.
Otakon 2010Here's info on the Otakon 2010 event:
Make a Manga Tournament!
When: 7-10 PM, Saturday, July 31
Where: Workshop 1
Show up early since there'll only be one this year and the room fills up FAST. Judges for the event will include :iconkuroitenshi13:, :iconsailorptah:, :iconshinigamieon:, and Kittyhawk from SGVY.
I'll be at the ASHN meetup with :iconsailorptah: as usual and helping out with an 18+ workshop Friday at 10:30 PM in Workshop 2 with :iconstrawberrygina: and :iconjennieb:.
How this account worksThis account is the official account for the Create a Comic Project. As such, it operates under limitations. I only fave artwork that I am/plan to use in the project. And since the project is for all-ages, I do not, as a rule, fave artwork that wouldn't be appropriate for children. (One exception: if the art can be easily modified into a child-safe state.)
Another reason I won't fave a piece is because, while I would like to use it for the project, I wouldn't be able to. Biggest reason for this are watermarks. I don't use art with big watermarks since those come out in print and basically make the templates look meh. I understand why artists use them, but I really don't have the time it takes to remove watermarks from templates to make them usable.
Another reason is free floating text on the image. I remove all text from art and comics to let kids fill in their own. But if the image has text outside a word-bubble covering it, it can be as time consuming as watermarks to remove. Word bu
NYC AdventureI'm currently in NYC. I'll be using the project as part of a tutoring program. I may also have monthly sessions with children from families of other graduate students living on campus.

PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
