hello lovelies <3
I'm not 100% back from the dead from all that went on at Aki-Con this year, but that being said, this year was fantastic and I had more fun than I can remember!
Here begins my post-con bullet point recap. My mind is still too scattered to think in paragraphs, so hopefully this will be easy and fun to follow along.
This year, my table mate was
. She was an awesome art buddy by the way, and for those who came by to her side of the booth, you'd know that her bookmarks are super!
We scored a nice spot right in the artists alley entry way. After lugging ourselves out of our warm beds at 6am, I suppose that was our best reward. We were prepared and brought thermoses of hot milk tea too, so we were sufficiently caffeinated before the masses came in.
WE WERE NOT NEXT TO THE ROCK BAND ARENA. THIS SHOULD ALREADY SPEAK MILES.
This year, my side of the table was all about stickers, buttons, and commissions. Most popular this year was Inuyasha
(as a sticker), and Puff Cat
(as a button). I'm stoked because both of these were debut items this year, and I'm enthralled that they were well received. (TwT)
This year's commissions ranged from bishoujo drawings of Oh My Goddess!
, to chibi couplings, to sexy bishounen bust-ups. I even got to draw a fox lady in a wedding gown! To Erik who commissioned me --> I hope she said "yes"! (>w<)
I have officially decided that almost everyone in the Artists Alley is just AWESOME. The amount of AWESOME involved here cannot fit this journal entry, so let me just say I really, REALLY enjoyed meeting all of you (again), and thank you for being my neighbors for 30-some hours this past weekend!! I could not have survived without you.
My new (and re-newed friends)!
And also shout-outs to Janet and Dan from Prairie Knoll Stitchery, and Alicia from GeekyGifts! COMMISSIONS / TRADES
----> are open!
I do both print AND custom sticker commissions. Traditional and Digital mediums are both available! Prices will vary.
Work in progress:
1. Chibi couple portrait | Travis
2. Keith Goodman chibi | Jennifer
3. Policeman England portrait | Veronica
4. Switzerland / Poland chibi stickers | Kayla
5. Dahlek | Bearnostic (trade)
Again, thank you everyone for a fantastic year, and I hope you all had as much fun as I did. For those interested in Akicon 2012, I highly recommend it for the sheer purpose of Artists Alley! And please feel free to message me with any questions. <3
