So I'm sending Valentine's cards to anyone who wants one.

I have extra that I bought this year, and also envelopes and watercolour paper and paint and pens and pencil crayons, so I will also take art prompts*, though I guarantee, like, nothing about that fill. (I might take a sideways turn and sketch you a dragon instead of a person or write a drabble or send you a mix instead of doing that visual art thing.)

If we are not mutuals on dreamwidth you are likely getting something without a return address from me, and if, you, too, would like to retain an aura of mystery - I've enabled anonymous asks on my tumblr so you can send me your address there. (A non-anonymous dreamwidth message is another option.) Anonymous or not, I won't keep a digital copy of your address and unless we start up a correspondence I won't keep a paper copy, either.

*I'm doing my Femslash February thing right now so prompts about men are likely to be interpreted as fandom prompts or a character type - I don't make or consume fanworks about men in February

...and those are the technical deets, I think. Let me know if there's a thing I've forgotten or something else.

I am excited to do a productive thing that is not communicating with government and is happy and slightly silly and joy spreading. I also really need to do art things because art is good for me and an outlet - when I start art-ing in areas of my life where it's not really called for that's a sign, I think.

I also really love Valentine's Day, because I run that the way I want to, basically, so: love letters or fan art or flowers or cards for friends and whatever I want. Generally I tend to celebrate it in the same spirit I did when I was six. I do what I want and it makes me happy. It's nice; I recommend it.

Last year was the first fannish Valentine I've sent, I think - there was a store bought card that I had to add supplementary fanart to and then sign as a fictional character. I spent a lot of time giggling, I think.

So, yep: love and joy and Valentine's Day! Let me know if you want to be on my mailing list for that this year and drop me an ask or send a dreamwidth message with your address and maybe an art prompt. (I won't do dudes but I may have some hunks of Canada pin-up art postcards around, and I will do international mail.)

So, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival is May 9-10 this year and I am planning on attending. I went last year, too, and it's one of my favourite geeky events of the year. I mean, tomorrow is free comic book day, but I am way more excited about TCAF. It's like this really fantastic book fair, basically. There are comics and prints and buttons and stickers and postcards and all kinds of great art things and it all just makes me really happy.

So, I will be buying some things and am likely to be tempted to postcards. (Sometimes there are really pretty free ones that artists give out as promos, too. I think I mentioned liking TCAF.) Would anyone like me to send them a thing from TCAF this year?

I am down with snail mail, so, if you would like something you can send me your postal address and I am happy to spread things around that way, or, if you would prefer, I can take a picture of it for you and send it to you that way. (I've done that for my friend with the unreliable postal system and it's like a virtual tour of your mail? Like, it's great and also odd? Unusual formatting, it is a thing.)

Let me know if you're interested.

I got a con report in the form of a postcard in the mail today, and am going to a con this weekend, so, would anyone like a postcard?

TCAF is my favourite of the few cons that I have been to. It is free, it is in a library, and it's... essentially a really awesome book fair? ...and there is a lot of amazing art. I am very much looking forward to it and am absolutely going to end up with postcards because aaaaaart.

I am excited and into the whole paper and snail mail thing, so, if anyone wants to send me their postal address that would be cool, or, alternatively, if you are more comfortable with digital things I could send you a photo? (........aaaaaaaaaart.) Let me know if you are interested.
