Unfortunately, due to some changes in their AA Application process, it looks like I won’t be selling at Fanime this year. My apologies to anyone who was looking forward to seeing me there!
I’ll be at Fanime this weekend, table 37! I’m afraid I won’t have any new art, my hard drive just failed and I lost everything I was preparing… OTL
BUT I’ll hopefully have some new bow ties, and will be taking commissions all weekend! :D
A tiny how-to guide I had available for people who bought my bow ties at fanime. I figure I may as well post it here for free! It isn’t very well drawn, unfortunately, as by the time I got to drawing this my hand was actively seizing up and I had to take multiple hour long breaks, but it gets the point across. :)
Hahah, what a convention. :) First of all; Hello to all of the fanimecon people! Thank you for stopping by my table, chatting with me, or buying something. :D With your help, this was my best year in the artist’s alley yet! Meeting new people is one of my favourite things about cons, and I look forward to seeing you guys again in the future.
Now, to less interesting things. As I said, I sold better in the artist’s alley this year than I ever have before. But man, my sales were weird. I sold less than twenty prints over the course of the convention, and my usual best-sellers didn’t sell at all. Strange! The bow-ties were a great success, I sold out of Police Box, d20, and I <3 Yaoi. Only one steampunk damask sold, though, and none of the argyle or sushi bows sold so I /may/ retire those designs depending on how they sell in the future. Everything else sold between acceptable and well - I think I still need to figure out the ideal pricing on fridge magnets, as they sold really inconsistently. Oh well!
All in all, despite being stuck behind a table the entire time I had a great time at fanime. I might not post a ton in the upcoming month as it is going to be a very hectic one for me, but I’ll be working hard to have some new merchandise prepared in time for Anime Expo! I hope to see you guys there!
