Hello my lovelies! I am way overdue for giving you guys and gals some updates. I fell behind on all of my social media and art projects by a whopping three months because I've been working my butt off between Panera, teaching at the college of Saint Rose, teaching every Saturday, and doing the Plattsburgh Comic Con. I also adopted an adorable yet very rambunctious kitten in August. I love her, but she's a hyper handful! Suffice to say, I apologize for spamming you all with three months worth of back logged art and what-have-you, but I wanted to get everything caught up so I can spend the rest of this month focusing solely on the Inktober Challenge. I did take a bit of a break in August after that comic con because I was getting burnt out. I stopped my Sunday Sketches and pretty much went radio silent on all my social media. Heck, I didn't even take much time to browse what other people were posting. This is probably the second time I have been on my PC since July >.>;
Anywho, the Plattsburgh Comic Con was sort of a bust. I broke even and made back the table fee, the gas, the printing costs, and my hotel room money, but I didn't really sell a lot or make any profit which was a bummer. It was very slow and there wasn't as much traffic as the Saratoga Con. I did meet some really cool artists though, including some industry professionals. I got to pick their brains and learn a lot of great stuff that I will be applying from here on out at conventions. I don't know that I want to do the Plattsburgh con again. I think for now I will just stick to Saratoga and maybe look into the Albany one too. At least those are closer to home.
In other news, my Saint Rose classes in July were a huge success. I had around 60 students and all my classes were pretty much full. From some of those kids I gained students for my Saturday classes, and each week I seem to have a crew of regulars, and occasionally I see some new faces. The freelance teaching business has been slow to grow, but it's definitely gaining some traction.
Right now I just want to get through Inktober, work on creating my own comic (for real this time, I'm actually going for it!) Then I have to prep for the Saratoga Comic Con in November. I always have so much on my plate, so if I fall behind again, I hope you guys understand and don't abandon me ;.; Thanks for reading!
