For any of you who are friends with me on Facebook, or follow me on tumblr
, you'll know that I am soon heading to Asia for a bit. And by "soon", I mean the 7th of March, and by "for a bit", I mean a year. I'm heading over there with a friend of mine, Fern, who has a copious amount of relatives in various countries, and we'll be working our way around the whole of Asia for 12 months plus.
It's not really a year long holiday, or a gap year backpacking through Asia as we'll be working in every country we're in, restaurants, bar work etc, at some point we're going to be working with Elephants which is going to be pretty bloody amazing I imagine. I'll be bringing my camera though, sketchbooks and all that jive because its going to be a year in an entirely new culture. My Storm Trooper figurine is coming with me as well, as i'm terrible at posing for photo's so he'll be doing it instead. Not sure what to call him yet
So that means you probably won't be getting any updates from me for a long, long time. Which, I know, Is going to be hard to deal with, what with my frequent posting and all that, but i'm sure you'll survive. I'm going to be making a tumblr account as I can update it by text and whatnot, and i'll slap the link up when I have it set up, if anyone is interested in travelling Asia from the comfort of their own laptop.
It also means no costume pictures, costume plans or costume related posts for 12 months. As, obviously, i'm not going to be anywhere near my regular con scene. This sucks balls as I have a lot of people who I only ever get to see on the con circuit and i'm going to miss them terribly.
So for now, this is an early goodbye from Eric, and I'll try not to get myself deported.
