LEGASP. You've got an art thief at so and so page!Answer:
I'm glad you've taken time to inform me, but I don't really care so much if my own artwork gets stolen (it's frequent anyways XD). The best route is just to quietly report it. Unless they're using it for profit, then that's a whole other issue.

Do you use references for your illustrations?Answer:

Hey why don't you ever reply to my notes??? *FUME FUME*Answer:

How do you prepare for conventions?Answer:
Quite possibly the worst person to ask about this. You can do prints and stuff at Staples or Costco or a photo studio.
