Comic con 2010 pt2

I got an opportunity to meet one of my top 4 divas of all-time Lita. I've actually now have met 2 out of my top 4, Lita & Victoria, now only Trish Stratus and Chyna left to go (well hopefully Trish).

I gave her one of the WWE cards I made and took a pic (cost me $25 bucks unfortunately). It was a cool moment.
Then I met former Diva Miss Jackie (I'll elaborate more on that on my other blog ) and saw some of the other pro wrestling legends, celebrities and artist. I do wish I got a picture with Linda Hamilton and Adam West but both of their booths were extremely crowded as you might expect.

So the paper stock for the WWE cards, is a little thin. I asked my mom to pick me up some 4x6 card paper if there was some at her job and I would give her the money. She did let me know what kind of paper they had, and I said okay. Would I didn't realize was that they were individual photo sheets.
I didn't want to complain about it, cause she was so tired when she came home and she bought what she saw. I should have been much more specific or went myself to see what was available. It's all good though. I printed on them anyways. The first pic came out a complete mess, but after a few adjustments all twelve pics printed great.
Now I just have to put them with a heavier stock so that I can sell them at Comic-Con next week. We'll see how it goes.

-So I'm out Nellz Nation.

WWE cards

A preview of the WWE cards I've been working on to show at Chicago Comic-Con in two weeks.
Hopefully I can print front and back on these. So far they're looking pretty good to me, despite my tablet acting weird as I work on them. I'll probably have 12 total ready for the show, and some more uploaded on here a couple weeks after.

Check out two of the cards on my wrestling themed blog-SmarksexyLovin

My kinda girl...

This is from last year, when Sucker Punch actress Abbie Cornish was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, to promote her movie "Bright Star". He cracks me up when he watches a clip of her rapping and is shocked that she's pretty good, considering in the US she's only known for doing art house drama films. She went by the name MC Dusk during her rapping days as a member of Blades of Hades. In another clip from that show, she showed some graffiti she did.

Cute face, accent, an action movie coming out next year, rapping, tagging. Sounds like my kinda girl...except for the whole dating Ryan Phillipe while he was married.

BTW, Her group, Blades, finally got a record deal. I doubt she's still apart of the group full-time, but she might get a featured appearance on their album. Her mentioning them on tv, no doubt helped get them noticed by a record label.
