Super Nova and Other Such Things

Well, for someone who doesn't have a job, I've been pretty busy this week! Mostly I've been doing social sorts of things, meeting new people and all that. And it's been pretty great! I must do more of these things.

Choir practise, QUT Queer Collective screening of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, parent time, Sprinkl (a creative networking group) and Super Nova were all the highlighting events of this week. And tomorrow I'm going to see 'A Cat in Paris', a feature length french animation. Joy!

Super Nova was pretty damn great, I came away with about a million billion business cards and flyers of a lot of things that I'd like to check out. As well as some amazing art by Ben Templesmith. Seriously though, so many things and artists to check out now! There's some pretty great local talent in Brisbane. And I definitely want to check out the Brisbane Quidditch Group. :D

Also, next year I totally want to share a table with someone at Super Nova. So friends, I'm putting it out there, it's just an idea right now, but let's Super Nova it up next year!

Speaking of friends, it was so great to see so many friends at Super Nova! It was just lovely to catch up with people, especially people that I hadn't seen in a while/ages.

Although while I was at Super Nova, I did manage to make myself ill in some way. I blame the sun. I was standing outside in the sun for quite a while in order to get in and when I made it in it was pretty hot and crowded. Combine that with no lunch or water and you get a Lex who very nearly passes out. x_x Or perhaps my friend Jarrod is so manly he made me swoon.

Well, that's enough talk! Time for some art:
It's Snow White! I quilled her using paper and I really want to turn her into a necklace. I'm going to coat her with resin, get a metal loop to attach her to a necklace and test her out. If she's sturdy enough I'm going to quill more necklaces and put them in my Etsy. :)


And here's Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. :) She shall also become a necklace!

That's all for now, I need some more rest, that sunlight sure takes it out of me.
