If you follow my Twitter, you might know that a month or so ago I was lucky enough to be asked to send some of my needle felted Adventure Time fan art to be a part of the Adventure Time Experience fan gallery at the New Children’s Museum during San Diego Comic Con. It was such an exciting experience for me to have my felties in any kind of gallery setting -- I was flattered to be included alongside so many talented folks, celebrating such a mathematical show.
Also exciting was finding the above picture of my stuff in the exhibit in the write up on one of my favorite comics blogs, Comics Alliance! Probably this represents my fifteen milliseconds of fame.
A couple days ago my art made it home safely, and I was happy to find that they had sent the gallery labels for each set of work back to me with my artwork! I love the illustration on these, it's so cute and whimsical. Hot Dog Princess also approves.
AND THEN! A few days later, I found a mysterious package in the mail with a big Adventure Time label on the front. What in the what! Inside was this totally awesome Finn tote bag, a Jake necklace, a keychain, and the bossest thank you note ever!
A hero of art! Why yes thank you. And all in rhyme! What a super surprise -- it was a pleasure just to be included in the exhibit. I've already worn the necklace to work a few times. Because I'm totally an adult and professional. Yes.
The Cartoon Network really went above and beyond here, I want to thank them for really providing such a terrific fan experience for me! I can't wait for the next fan art whim to inspire me... maybe finally make that Lady Rainicorn...
