Whew... back from AAC. AAC was a very relaxed weekend. Met lots of awesome, enthusiastic anime fans and other artist alley people.
to name a few. I forgot to grab cards from a few others -.-;;
Great news ♡
Morie the Witch has reached 70 copies sold o_o I only ordered 150 copies of the first book so..... I am hoping I can get the second issue in production before the remaining 80 copies are sold. Thank you everyone who has read the book so far!
And in NEWS
My next convention is Youmacon. Last year I really wanted to go, but not only did I miss sign ups, but I wasn't confident that I could make it there by car. This year.... o_o I am going going going. Should be tons of fun, many new people to meet since I've mostly been going to conventions in the north east and have met most of the north east people who are artist alley regulars.
After this, the last convention I have for the year is AniMaine in South Portland, ME. :3 It should be a smaller convention, but smaller conventions are very fun to be at. :3 And I haven't been to Maine since PortconMaine a couple of years back (I went as an attendee, no table. They only have a dozen tables, so it is really hard to get in!) so I'm very much looking forward to be able to meet Maine's anime crowd
And in 2015!
I am already invited to Kotoricon in Sewell, NJ in January; Katsucon in National Harbor, MD in February; Awesome Con in Washington DC in late May; and Anime Midwest in early July. o.o considering the comic book's production rate, I may attend a few less conventions compared this year where my motto was basically "if it's a convention, let's go to it".
^^ I'm also considering my pottery work more seriously and considering all-pottery non-anime conventions o_o which is a bit saddening to me since I have been drawing for three times longer (~17 years) than I have been throwing (~6 years) -- and therefore consider the drawing more essential to the core than throwing, but I am happy to be able to make things that make people happy either way.
But my ultimate goal in life is to produce comics o_o that, I think, will always be true.
But I'm also open to the idea that one can pursue more than one ultimate goal in life.
Thank you everyone for your support and enthusiasm.
Y'all are the best.
