It was wonderful to spend Isabelle (now 94) and my birthday/summer solstice with friends drinking from the Fountain Of Youth (yes, from the1500’s) in St. Augustine Florida! The peacocks and history were amazing and it looked like a tropical paradise. Plus lots of nautical knowledge and celestial navigation. Five stars!

Drawing from Life: Comics Fiction & Memoir
Friday July 19th, 11:30a.m. - 12:30p.m.
Memoir has become a genre central to independent comics—but personal history influences the work of cartoonists in many different ways. This panel brings together creators and from vastly different backgrounds who mine their personal experiences to create memoir, fiction, fantasy, or something altogether new. Includes Simon Hanselmann (Megahex), Ulli Lust (Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life), Dame Darcy (Meat Cake), and cartoonist, editor, and comics scholar Trina Robbins.
GOTH MERMAID EYESHADOW PALETTE
Vegan and cruelty free I tested it on myself first! (I was my own bunny)
The colors are hand-picked with aqua, and white glitter for mermaid looks and to be fun and glamour / drag but the sandy beach inspired part is for nude looks and day wear.
The black glitter and black matte for goth looks and evening and the deep magenta can double as rouge.
That way you can use one palate for everything which makes it easier for us who travel a lot to only have to bring one thing.
