IlluxconJust wrote up a bit blog on michaelbielaczyc.com about my experiences at Illuxcon.
For those who are unfamiliar, Illuxcon is a convention of Fantasy and Sci Art Masters, Illustrators, and sculptors. The attendance is small, limited to other artists, students and collectors.

Gencon 2010 Wrap upSo man, was gen Con fun!
Wednesday we got down and loaded out in the unbearable heat. Luckily they had the AC on inside so it was not as bad as it could have been. I think it was so hot they realized someone would die if the AC was completely off. After set up, I hung out in the hotel room with all our hometown buds Grant Cooley, Sam Flegal, Matt and the rest of the Aradani crew.
After a fun night, but not enough sleep, we started out on Thursday in the exhibitors hall. I had my own art table this year, so i was pretty nervous about doing well enough to afford it again next year. Thursday was slow for me. I sat around and got to joke around with other artists, but had no sales. I got a little scared.
Thursday night we got to go play True Dungeon. The whole crew was friends, so this was a blast (and thanks to Justin for the true dungeon tokens which helped us through) . It is part DnD, part Larp, part puzzle solving, and a whole lot of fun. We dressed in full costume a
Connooga and more...So we had a blast as always at Connooga, the room parties were crazy this year. We were glad to get to hang out with some old friends and become better friends with others. Me and Paul were on a couple of good art panels and got to chill with some great artists, Mark Helwig, Larry Elmore, and Billy Tackett.
Me and Laura heading into the Bellydancing panel in our Steampunk costumes. she is trying out the new contacts she got at the show.
If anyone is on the fence about attending Connooga next year... do it! Everything was great, good panels, good parties, great dealers room, and great guests.
Next we are working on getting ready for MidSouthCon. At this con me and paul have aton of panels, as well as hosting the Saturday night dance party.
On a costuming side, I am working on my second set of steampunk win
Updates: Chattacon, new art, masks, ect.So we had a blast at Chattacon. It was so good to see all of our friends, Robin and Andrew from Faerystone Creations, the Hypericon Crew, and all the rest. Both nights we partied like satyrs on a midsummer night, and got to wear some of our newer costumes. Paul won People's Choice in the Art Show, and I won best Fantasy costume in the masquerade.
You can find pictures of our adventures here: http://aradani.com/photogallery/thumbnails.php?album=54
I am also working on a bunch of new projects. The Jungle cat mask (for Avatar Na'vi costumes that everyone is asking about) is finished, the silicone is curing in the mold right now. The latex version is finished as well. Tomorrow we are having some snow (hopefully) so besides taking some costume pics out in the weather, I will be taking photos of those new masks.

Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
