Otakuthon 2014 Roundup

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 26, 2014, 7:24 PM


Otakuthon came and went again and I couldn't be happier that its over. Sorry but I'm exhausted. X_x 

It was my first year selling my work. Now, generally first-timers either come out at a loss or break even. I made a profit, and not a nice one at that! Not only that but as it was my first time, I had about 5-6 prints and one of them sold out! It was the Rawrizard, not surprising. I managed to get some market research done, if you will, as to which Pokemon people would like to see next year and I'm making a list of which ones to draw next. 

Pokemon won't be the only thing I'll be drawing. I met someone while at my booth and the mention of an old underground Canadian 90s icon lead to us skipping merrily down the explosion of nostalgia that ensued. I scared him because every single show he'd mention, I either started singing the theme song or remembered the names of characters therein. It became a game that we played during the rest of the con, where he'd walk by my table and mention more and more obscure shows to try to trump me. He couldn't, but I made a new friend, which is always nice. <3 This experience gave me the idea of making prints of nostalgic shows, like Cybersix and Monster Hunter, for example. 

Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish my Delphox cosplay on time, but Greninja was a huge hit! I'll be starting work on my cosplays for next year soon, because i realized this year that preparing for a con, that is, planning what prints/buttons to make, actually drawing them and getting them printed, cosplays, budgeting, its a lot of work and I would really prefer to spread that out over the course of the year. With that in mind, we've already started dreaming up ideas. I am definitly making a Yang costume as my viking sister Ariel will be going as Ruby next year. 

More plans to come but for right now, I'm taking a week off.

Hello! Been I while, hasn't it? I was wondering if you could look over my gallery and see if I've improved?
Sorry to be a bother, but I kind of made a bet with myself that one day I'd impress you.
