This, I mean, HEXXP is what the hell I've been up to, at least, the maid cafe portion of it XD  Yup, it's the 2nd Annual sci fi/fantasy/gaming/et cetera convention!  Heavy on the "et cetera" part ;-)  It's nice to have Yunyun on board as well, especially since it's a new maid cafe set-up (affiliated with Animaid Cafe from Cali)!  So if you want to check out the maid cafe & get some katsu curry (mmmm, katsu curryyyyy), or other stuff at the convention, it's coming up Sept. 30 (Friday) -Oct. 1 (Saturday)!

Okay, done pimping.  Back to your regularly scheduled talking bubbles time!  Ooh, look at the pretty lights!

This Week Saturday:

(reposting Moosubi's post)
The Art Center is hosting an Estria Foundation Graffiti battle on Sept 3rd, noon-7pm. They are interested in having workshops as part of the activities available to attendees, no pre-registration, sign-up day of the event.

Linekona said we could do our normal stuff- drawing demos, tones, pens, etc. They also mentioned calligraphy and screen printing as areas of interest.

2-4 for the mangabento portion of the event

Next year Linekona Display:

We mostly decided on a theme: Nakama (with a little help from my friends). No stringent guidelines except this -- instead of you deciding what to submit to display, ask your friends. This can be done in any way you wish, but the choice must be made by a friend.

Apparently drawing is a social art and perhaps social is the way to go for confidence-boosting. So have no(t as much) fear and send your submissions!

Next year Japanese Cultural Center:

Theme is Childhood Memories. What was the anime you were watching when you were young? If you're still a child, no problem -- you're making memories now! If you only got into anime/manga from adulthood, send those memories in too!

So there are two exhibits that have been confirmed but no date has been set for either.

Linekona
JCCH sometime in 2013

Ideas for JCCH
Exhibit title: ?
Theme:
Childhood Memories
I was thinking of tying the theme to each of the festivals done by jcch to make almost a calander of events. This would have a side effect of creating a marketable product for the museum (I suppose the childhood theme could be a calender too- this could also tie into the genre of woodblock prints that are collected based on some sort of theme

Format:
JCCH want to do a juried show
I suggested generating interest by holding mini contests several time to build interest and awareness in submitting entries

Suggestions for time:
JCCH thinks summer is better for the show because more kids are off and could possibly come
JCCH also wants to coordinate with Kawaiikon and possibly ask them to host the contest at the kon- maybe we could do it at Honolulu festival too
Someone suggested doing it before the kon to generate interest in purchases at the kon

Post ideas please!

I got one from a friend of a friend :D  It's an HP LaserJet1012 with an ink cartridge & bottle.  Otherwise, I could put it into the general stash, wherever that is (or whoever has it :-).
 
 
15 May 2011 @ 07:14 am
cut the length in half from this past workshop to 2-4hrs
get the cost down to at most $10
advertise the following:
basic drawing skills (like we did today)
character design
backgrounds
inking
coloring w pens
toning
layout
computer drawings
editing
writing/scripts/story ideas?
All that should cover a wide variety of needs

4 wkshops, 1 per qtr, focus on a couple ideas each session but be there to help with any of the subjects. Locat at TCM, JCCH, Academy Family Sunday, Linekona, & or UHW, tie in the contest, exhibit space at TCM, Academy or JCCH, UHM Convince paper to publish, get UHW to host the website and help manage it. Get someone to host the show at Neighbor Islands. Get done by kon and redisplay it there. Get someone to publish the best stuff for free in a limited run compilation book as part of the prize. try to get ayumi to get her friends to send stuff frm japan.

submit response, ideas to this

Subject: Kawaii Kon 2011 plans?

Hi everyone,

Jason here at the Star-Advertiser ... with Cel Shaded winding down its
in-print run, I'm going to be using my last few columns to promote what's
going on at Kawaii Kon in a few weeks. If you're getting this email, that
means I've seen you at the con in the past, and I need your help! I'd like
to know: What's going to be new with you at the con (and/or the groups you
represent) this year? Even if you aren't going to be there, I'd like to know
as well.

If you could reply to this by the 23rd, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for
your help, and hope to see you at the con!

Following is tentative reply:


Mangabento will once again take up an entire back corner of the kon.

The usual fair will be there: Yu Xian and kigennaiteiru will be doing commisions with me filling in occassionally. Some prints and manga will be available for sale to.

Hi-O Kitty is back with her etched fan art glassware.

Kaimuki High School's Anime Club will selling their wares.

And of course will have a place for people to hang, draw, and probably game (video), Go, and Opencanvas. If anyone needs help with their own work ask us. We will have some art supplies people can try.

Comments? Dennis- wot u doing?

Hi all,

Buma is finalizing the details for the Honolulu Festival (Convention center, 1st floor) What I need to know is who is available to help and when.

Coloring/ Do it yourself manga Panels/ Rabbit Face Origami

3/11 Friday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
3/12 Saturday: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
3/13 Sunday: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Buma is asking us to do a simple origami activity which I have posted below. We're also going to be doing our usual coloring/ manga panels etc.

http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-rabbit-face.html

Photobooth

This event will run for the entirety of the event, however on Friday and Sunday it will be a do-it-yourself photobooth, people will take their own pictures and all we'll have to do is move the props around, i.e. speech balloons, wings, sound effects, etc. It shouldn't require that much attention on these days.

On Saturday however we'll need a bit of help, at least three or so people.

3/11 Friday - 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
3/12 Saturday - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
3/13 Sunday - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Thank you for reading! Remember emergency MB meeting to finish props for the photobooth on UH Manoa campus Sunday 3/6 1:00 pm, meet at the Art Building.
