At the end of every month we have an art walk downtown here in Plainview,Tx. It's great to see what people you see so often can really do.
Brony con in Baltimore or baltimare, it was fun, being in Road Island where I real I'm the only brony there,being almost over whelmed with bronys and pony merchandise was so wonderful, thank you all for brightening up my yearLa la la la

I went to two actually. I went to a convention called Otakufest in Cebu where I live and another one called Medieval Day.

Otakufest was pretty fun (kinda). I was by myself most of the time so I didn't know any of the people. There were some artists there but I was shy talking to them cause they either looked really busy or didn't understand English (which is a damn shame cause I can only speak English).

Medieval Day was a bit of a downer. It was fun because someone made an Iron Throne replica and the Game of Throne art there was bloody fantastic. But only problem is that there were freaking anime cosplayers. I have nothing against cosplaying, but please leave your school girl/maid outfits at home. I wanted to see suits of armor...not your super kawii outfit

I visited the Gallery of the Pictures of the Year and I was really impressed and like it a lot. It's always interesting to get some background information of pictures you like :nod:

SCC, MCM and Anime-Con. Thoroughly enjoyed them all. Planning to go to a more local convention in November.

There is a huge art festival in my town every year. As far as I'm concerned its the biggest event of the year.

I went to a place a couple states over, and we were at the masquerade and my best friend won! She was a zombie bride. She put on the makeup in our hotel room, because they lived locally and hadn't gotten one, and they didn't want to mess up their car with fake blood. We never got the stains out of that towel... Anyhow, I had one of the least noticable costumes there. Last year I won my division for an awesome Zita the Spacegirl costume. This year it was Annabeth Chase. I had the necklace, the shirt, and the fake dagger, but there was a zombie bride, and Link from Legend of Zelda, and multiple superheros, and characters from Candyland with real candy on their costumes, and it was epic! I went to a fiction writing class, too, and it wasn't that good. It was alright, but it used a form of plotting that I don't like...

I went to the GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art), in Brisbane. That was pretty cool because Cai Guo-Qiang's "Falling Back to Earth" exhibition was on and all his work was incredible. Here's a link to some photos of the show if anyone would like to see his art, it's very good!…

I went to a comic con in Minneapolis, wizard world last weekend. There were a lot of sweaty nerds there, and I saw some of my favorite characters. I was kind of disappointed at the lack of cosplayers, but there was a guy with an amazing iron patriot costume. I would so recommend going to a con, and I would love to go to next year's comic con.
PS William Shatner and Karen Gillan was signing autographs, but they were $40 each.

We did New York Comic Con, Baltimore Comic con and a few other small ones along the way.  Lots of fun and a great way to get rejuvenated by interacting with fans, and making new fans and friends.  Gearing up this year to also hit Boston, either HeroesCon or Wizard World Philly and a few others.

My art was displayed in the Batanical Gardens in Alabama. It went on display and i sold copies of my painting signed, and it went on display for 2 1/2 months. I met other artist as well! I certainly learned a thing or two!

KuroNekoCon anyone? 2013 summer there was a kid cosplaying as Link, whose companion was L, and who participated in a foam sword contest. People kept hugging L, like fellow L cosplayers. LINK WAS ME, IF YOU SAW ME. you probably didn't though... let me know if you did!

i went to meet the true master BROM @ on march 30th , it was out of my expectations, (it was like a costumed ball in a real chapel with guards dressed up as the swiss guard), where everybody did an incredible effort to make their costume look like it was supposed to be in a movie, some spend over 6 months to create theirs, there where models of goth magazines, professional photographers clothing designers, from all around the world, truly amazing, go and google Viona Art or Viona IElegems, she made all this happen.
I had a chat with my hero Brom got him signed two books by him and got me a copy of a painting. He's wife Laurie Lee Brom was also there, and she'salso a truly gifted artist. I'm allready looking forward for the next gala nocturna!!! That's how i met Brom .

They get pissed off if you start stripping in the middle of the convention but beyond the security throwing me out and the arrest I'd say it was a pretty good day.

There aren't just comic-cons out there.  My local library hosts art group displays and photography club annual galleries.  Not all of it is too my tastes, but there are always gems to jump start the imagination. My town museum often has travelling exhibits.  I live in a small town, but I've seen Dave McKean originals for The Sandman, Picasso etchings and Japanese prints of the original 'Wave'.  You'll be amazed what you can find, if you look - that should be my motto, or maybe someone who's cooler's motto.
