Oh man. What a weekend.
This was my first time running my own table at a BIG convention. I’d helped out at Monkey Minion's table last year, and five years ago I had a run at Kumoricon, but never anything like this. I was totally unprepared. I ran on a grand total of thirteen hours of sleep between Thursday night and Sunday. One of you jerks gave me a nasty cold.
AND I WOULD TOTALLY DO IT AGAIN IN A HEART BEAT.
Everyone who came by our table was absolutely incredible and I am so honored that you’d take the time to look at my goofy art, and blown away that y’all spent money on it. Thank you so much for supporting me as an artist and nerding out with me over robots and monsters, and in many cases, tolerating my ghastly screeching over your stunning cosplays.
Thank you so much to my boothmates too, cultplanet and smiling-grouch and Nastasya, who put up with my scatterbrained ass all weekend with the grace and patience of saints, all the while dazzling the world with their own incredible work which everyone should look at immediately.
And thank you to David Willis and Gail Simone for not calling security on me when I came over and mumbled awkwardly and all but threw things at them and fled. They are both lovely, lovely people in real life, and unlike me and my muppet-armed fidget-ry, both totally cool as cucumbers. They radiate coolness, like a tastefully-applied cologne made of social skills. It’s incredibly helpful when you lose the ability to do words.
All in all, it was an incredible experience. Needless to say I’ve already signed on for next year. I’m also going to Rose City Comic Con, so if you’re a Northwest local, hopefully I’ll meet some of you again there!
In the meantime, thank you everyone for making this such a fantastic convention. May the next one be even better. <3
