Retro Gaming Expo 2017
I snagged myself a table at the Retro Gaming Expo I'll be there on May 27th 2017 ! For more information, go to their website
. I hope to see you there!
I've been accepted into Minicomi's Artist Alley this year! This convention will be held at 1 Athletes Way on July 8th, 2017 from 10am to 5pm. For more information, go to their website
. I already have a host of brand new prints lined up for the convention, as well as the card games and pins I usually carry, so I hope to see you there!
Tsukinocon 2017 was INSANE! I was super busy & had a lot of fun! I didn't accurately guess how insane the pokemon pins were going to be! The project was a huge hit! by the end of the convention I was completely out of pin parts (I make the pins to order) and was selling them right off the boards :S!
I also ran a draw that was a huge success to raffle off my old Pokemon pin board! I was suprised at how many people wanted to enter the draw! in the end Gavin was my big winner! I was so glad to be there and hope I get to go again next year!
Halloween Expo 2016
Event was an organizational disaster, but I did get to bond with a few of the other vendors over the mutual suffering, so that was nice :)
Note: putting vendors outside during the most highly publicized and hyped storm of the season is NOT a good idea.
And while it didn't work out, I will try to see the bright side,
-I didn't catch a cold.
-I met someone else who played magic (considering the very sparse attendance, that was actually quite cool! :3)
-I got to playtest a kickstarter game
-Every other convention I attend will be better than this one.
So, while this was not a success, I will continue trucking forward
convention went very well! Much better than last year! I will be giving them another shot next year. many people stopped by and picked up their favorite pokemon pin, or a print (sold more original prints than I expected ^.^) also sold out entirely of my Sans print :3
I also met a ton of interesting people & got to high five some fellow mystic players. got to gush about cards with some magic players & picked up a copy of Symetra!
I applied for two jobs to paint book covers (crossed fingers)
As well as submitting my novel to Edge publishing for examination! (the guy who I gave the manuscript to recognized me later in the convention and I had one of those 'Senpai noticed me moments')
overall very fun & profitable weekend
this lovely (haha) photo was my booth, you can't see the stuff on the sides, but w/e. I also don't know when wez took this picture but this is probably the worlds worst photo of me -.- my expression is NOT indicative of how I felt over the weekend :P
thanks to everyone who stopped by & I can't wait to see you all next year!
Anime Evolution 2016
things went very well! (probably partially because my table location was really good) I sold out of almost all my cards! And sent many happy pokemon go players away from my booth with team banners, buttons and various pokeballs!
I even managed to sell a few of my original art pieces (suprise!) and met some magic players too!
overall things went very well. AE staff was very disorganized at first, but throughout the convention they seemed to get their stuff together and took care of us in the artists alley.
I even did a few quirky commissions! (will be posted when I get home)
it was overall a very gratifying and rewarding experience. will continue to attack the convention scene with renewed vigor and inspiration!
and thanks again to everyone who stopped by my booth, and even just looked and appreciated some of the stuff
Tsukinocon went really well! covered costs and even made a little bit (which for an artist is really good!) I'm going to keep trying at conventions, but with the small surplus I'll be purchasing some things to improve my booth (mostly just so it looks a little less like a chaotic mess!)
