3/29/14 Sacramento Draw Meet

There is a Draw Meet in Sacramento, Saturday, March 29th! 

When: 12:00PM - 5:00PM

Where: Arthur F. Turner Public Library (Click on link for directions!) 

Bring your own art supplies!
We will do our best to provide you with some supplies, but we are mostly a gathering point for artists to hang out and draw. 

The Library has bathroom facilities, and there are plenty of places to get food in the area, including a Cafe in the Community Center next door, the Subway across the street, a taco shop, convenience centers and a whole ton of other businesses!  

Come join us! You don’t have to draw to come, a lot of us don’t mind people watching us! :D 

  • Also please remember to be on your best behavior, we are not liable for you or your actions. We are a Safe Zone and will not tolerate harassment of any sort. If you start acting inappropriately I will ask you to leave and then ask management to ask you to leave, so please just be civil and awesome. :] 
  • If you come dressed up fancy/in cosplay/in something fabulous, we may end up drawing you! So dress to impress! (but be careful about cosplay cause it’s not a convention setting, so my recommendation is to be subtle) *More info about this to come!
  • We are hoping to add some fun art activities, stay tuned for more information!

And as always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Anonymous sent: I saw someone last quarter at a booth event thingy with something that looked like the candy swirl juju thing made of paper was this an HS reference purposely being made?

I may have performed at that event…did it look like this?

I don’t know if it was on purpose or not, but there were a lot of them in the room…

Sacramento Homestuck 4/13 Meetup!

kargrub:

It will be on Sunday, April 13th, and all Homestucks are welcome! It’ll be doubling as a birthday party for Jocelyn and myself, so I’ll be bringing a cake. First come first serve, but please bring your own lunch or eat before hand! Any allergies on the topic of the cake can be taken up with kargrub.tumblr.com

Location: William Land Park, across from the zoo

Time: Sometime around 11-11:30 am

Rules:

  • Greying up is welcome, as long as you SEAL YOUR PAINT.
  • No drugs, alcohol, the usual no-go’s.
  • Please be kind to others, I don’t want to ask anybody to leave.
  • Shhshh my tumblr and facebook don’t exist to my parents, so if you want me to be able to go to any cons or meetups ever again, don’t talk about mine please! Say that Jocelyn made the post, or that you saw it on Deviantart, so that all suspicion can be averted!
  • There’s probably going to be some children around in the park next to the picnic tables, so please be classy and don’t swear too much around them.
  • Ask the cutie before you touch the booty or hug them as I’ve had personal experiences of people slamming into me with a hug and freaking me out. It’s not fun if you don’t know it’s coming.
  • NO REALISTIC LOOKING PROPS. Zillyhoo’s or sickles are fine, but make sure it’s nothing that could be taken as a real weapon.
  • Just have good manners in general!
  • If anyone wants to bring soda or a pinata or stuff of the like, don’t be afraid to!

I hope you all can come! C:

Anonymous sent: I've been walking around campus with a Derse dreamer t shirt now and then or MC Spade shirt and nobody has come up to me yet or made a Homestuck reference to me.

It’s hard to find Homestucks on campus from my own experience! I think I may have seen a Derse t-shirt before this quarter but I couldn’t tell from afar for sure ): Awesome Homestuck gear though! I’m jealous ono

Anonymous sent: Is it just me, or did a lot of people lose interest during or after the hiatus?

The Gigapause is definitely taking a toll on all of us.

Soon though. Soon we will rise up again.

Updates:

Sorry for the inactivity lately! Because I was not the original creator of this blog, I wasn’t getting notices for asks or anything and only recently was I made the sole owner of this blog. So now I will go through the ask box and answer asks, as well as revamp the blog a bit.

As always, feel free to message me any events I may not know about or have posted so I can spread the word, or send me shout-outs of Homestuck sightings on campus! Unfortunately I can’t organize a 4/13 meetup at UCD because of other engagements, but I will reblog as many local meetups as I can find! :)

I may need another admin to help reblog events, but I will post details about that later.

2/1/14 Sacramento Draw Meet

sacramentodrawmeets:

There is a Mini Draw Meet in Sacramento, Saturday, February 1st! 

When: 12:00PM - 5:00PM

Where: The Naked Lounge (Click on link for directions!) 

What makes this a mini draw meet? Well, it’s only a couple days in advance to the actual meet, since it’s a last minute thing for a friend who is going away and would like to hang out with some artist buddies! So I don’t expect a big turnout cause it’s so short notice, but please come if you’d like to hang :) 

Bring your own art supplies, we won’t be providing any! And bring a couple of bucks to spend at the cafe so they let you use the bathroom. 

There’s a park across the street from the cafe if you wanna walk around, and a couple of food places all around the area if you get hungry! (and if you’re not a fan of Naked Coffee, there’s a Starbucks across the way)

Come join us! You don’t have to draw to come, alot of us don’t mind people watching us! :D 

  • Also please remember to be on your best behavior, we are not liable for you or your actions, if you start acting inappropriately I will ask you to leave and then ask management to ask you to leave, so please just be civil and awesome. :] 
  • If you come dressed up fancy/in cosplay/in something fabulous, we may end up drawing you! So dress to impress! (but be careful about cosplay cause it’s not a convention setting, so my recommendation is to be subtle)

HERE is the link for Fanime’s hotel booking:
https://www.cmrhousing.com/FANI_6A/welcome.aspx (I edited the link from last year to find the new link)
DO NOT go through http://www.fanime.com/
There would be TOO much traffic and the site would be unaccessible.
Fanime outsources their booking to CMR because they have the servers to back up Fanime’s traffic.

So BOOKMARK the link and on Feb 10th at at least 9:50 AM BE AT YOUR BLEEDING COMPUTER/LAPTOP to book a room because it opens at 10 AM.
Rooms GO FAST.
Last year the thurs-mon rooms went in less than 20 minutes.
