Katsucon sent me the map for Artist’s Alley today.
Here it is. I’ll be at table C7, marked on the map in red. If you turn left from the entrance you should be able to spot me.
I’m going to draw an ashcan comic about Heroescon. So much weird stuff happened.
I’m back in Raleigh. I got a Rental car on Saturday, and it’ll probably be going back to enterprise on Tuesday. I was really super scared I’d hit something on the way home because I couldn’t really afford the extra insurance, I was exhausted, and for part of the drive it was raining so hard I may as well have actually been driving underwater. Actually, no. Visibility would have been better at the bottom of a lake, and it probably have fewer idiots driving around without their lights on. I actually pulled over for a little while and turned on my emergency flashers, as did everybody else who wasn’t an idiot.
Also I stopped at a gas station to pee and they had a hibachi place in there.
I got the shrimp, It was pretty good.
Hey guys! If you’re going to be at HeroesCon, or if you’re near Charlotte, NC, then you should come see me this weekend! I’ll be at table AA-25 in the 600 block of artist alley.
I’m also teaching a panel on self-publishing at 11am Sunday in room 201!
Apparently I’m too lazy to make my own post but I will also be there. Pickles and I are sharing a table.
So, Uh, just throwing this out there: If I were to try to put together a webcomics panel/lecture thing for conventions, what kind of thing should I focus on?
My social anxiety may make it unfeasible, but is there anything about the way I do comics that you’d like to hear me talk about?
As promised, some other stuff. The scan is pretty crap, sorry about that.
Anyway at Katsucon I needed a sample art to demonstrate my sketching abilities. I used to have a binder of art for this, but I got rid of it because it took up a lot of space and very few people commissioned me. I replaced the binder with this drawing and a small sign that reads “Sketches $5 and up” That seemed to work better.
Unfortunately it got coffee spilled on it so I’m going to have to do another one for the next con I go to.
level-headedscout replied to your post: Would you be doing commissions while at a convention? I ask because an acquaintance of mine is the convention manager for Stellarcon in High Point and I might be able to get you in.
It’s a pretty small convention that’s put together by the Science Fiction Fantasy Federation from UNCG and is held currently in High Point. I’ve actually received an answer from him and am trying to forward the info to you.
Wow, that was quite fast. If your friend would like to contact me I pretty much get all my email at this account these days: firstname.lastname@example.org
Even my skyscrapsoup email addresses forward there.
ninjagrape answered your question: So I guess my con plans this year are now …
Maybe Otakon? But I recall you saying you wouldn’t be going because it’s too expensive. (Sorry to hear you got rejected for Animazement.)
The problem with Otakon is that it’s far away and expensive. Animazement is right here in Raleigh, where I live. Getting to AZ and covering the booth, my badge, gas to get there and back and any food I’m going to eat would cost maybe $200, tops.
Otakon badges and tables cost twice what Animazement’s do, plus I’d need a hotel, plus driving to Baltimore, plus some $50 for parking. I could go to three or four Animazements on what it costs to go to one Otakon.
So, uh, I guess I’m NOT going to Animazement. This would have been my 13th year attending, but my Artist Alley application was rejected. My roommate got rejected as well.
Apparently I was good enough last year but not this year? WTF? I’m really angry right now, and glad we decided not to get a hotel this year.
We may still be getting a one day pass on friday so we can go to anime hell. Our friend Phil runs it and it is the best thing.
