Woo! What a ride! Anime Boston was amazing, as always! Met some fans, sold some comics, and reveled in all the Tiger & Bunny, No.6, Sailor Moon, and Revolutionary Girl Utena love that I seem to represent. That's some A+ taste you kids have. Muah.jsheaisaninja
and I had a rad time, spent most of our time sitting at our tables in the Arist Alley. But when I did get to escape (besides that quick jaunt to the dealers room to secure me some kevinbolk
swag and, I kid you not, an actual animation cel from the Nick cartoon Doug
[be still my heart]) I was poking around the rest of the alley as best I could.sakkysa
was kind enough to stop by and buy an original off of me, though I repeatedly failed to make contact with her for the rest of the con until we were both exhaustedly packed up and heading home. I managed to score three of the masterpieces on this beautiful catalogue fav.me/d4sg1je
from the wildly talented Yutaan
. Had some excellent chatty-chats and secured a sketch commission from the super-cool tacofiesta
. Saw the ever-precious jiggly
, promised to buy a copy of the new Paul Reveres book and proceeded to forget (oh God forgive me forgive me I'll get one at MECAF I swear!) Oh, oh! And then I saw JD, one half of ScuttlebuttInk
and that rocked like 900 of my socks because OMG MSF! I'm making connections with other webcomic artists, see, WATCH ME BE A PROFESSIONAL. I also hassled strawberrygina
, but alas, she is super cool and will not remember me.
IconRoll! In order of appearance:
And I bought Utena, Yugi, and Barnaby off of this sweet deal right here:
Anyway, what's next? I finally get a little breather, and then I am off to ROFLcon roflcon.org/
at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts! I wont be exhibiting, but I will
be speaking on a panel about Fangirl Culture. I'll post more details about that soon. I will also have copies of PoC available for purchase in some informal capacity. More on that later, too. This is going to be a wild con- have you seen the guest list? Chuck
will be there, along with the Vegan Black Metal Chef and the lovely lady from My Drink Kitchen. And the Double Rainbow Guy!! WOW!
Thanks for a lovely weekend, to everyone who I saw, annoyed, bought from, sold to, geeked out with, and facilitated my being there.
