And also some late con reports



Last week, I finally finished my amazingly late con report for Aki Con. It's 8200+ words long, but only the last two sections are really important. The tl;dr version is that Aki Con is a shady business that doesn't really care about its customers, and I hope people think twice before supporting them in the future.

I also finished my IKKiCON report, which is far less drama-filled, but still manages to be 4000+ words. I think IKKiCON is the convention I've gone to the most number of times (3 as an artist, 4 total). It's kind of nice to have that since I've moved around too much in the last few years to make any other con a constant.

Anyway!

2013 CONVENTION SCHEDULE

:bulletgreen: ECCC (Mar 1-3: Seattle, WA)
:bulletgreen: Sakura-Con (Mar 29-31: Seattle, WA)
:bulletgreen: Comicpalooza (May 24-26: Houston, TX)
:bulletyellow: A-kon (May 31-June 2: Dallas, TX)
:bulletgreen: Everfree NW (July 5-7: Seattle, WA)
:bulletyellow: Kumoricon (Aug 31-Sept 2: Vancouver, WA)
:bulletyellow: Rainfurrest (Sept 26-29: Seattle, WA)
:bulletgreen: Jet City Comic Show (Nov 2: Tacoma, WA)
:bulletyellow: IKKiCON (Dec 27-29: Austin, TX)

(:bulletblue: Attended; :bulletgreen: Confirmed; :bulletyellow: Pending)

I am really, really nervous about ECCC because it will be my new "biggest con ever" and still outside my comfort zone in terms of genre/audience. I really want to have a new minicomic or something by then, but I dunno what to do for it. x__x Really looking forward to Sakura-Con though because I will get to hang out with Dr-Kara and theartboss and torikat again.

New on the list are Everfree NW, which will be my first pony con (I'm stupidly excited for this, you don't even knowwww) and Rainfurrest. I haven't done a furry con in ages, so I'm kinda looking forward to that too. I'm technically still on the waitlist for a dealer's table at Rainfurrest, but I'm feeling pretty good about moving up on the list. Even if I don't get a table though, I'll have stuff in the art show and will be attending.

The rest of the schedule is pretty similar to last year. Fingers crossed as always for A-kon, and hoping I actually get into Kumoricon this year?

I guess that is all for now...I have a billion things I wanna draw, but the hardest part is getting started. <__<

I might try to hit up Rainfurrest, but I need somebody to room with. ^^;

If you don't mind shuffling back and forth every day, you're welcome to come stay in my future cramped apartment*? 0:

* I'm moving in July, so I dunno how far I'll be from the con exactly, but still probably ~20 minutesish.

You would really let me stay with you? ;__;
I'll have to buy you dinner/drinks or something in exchange, but I'll start making plans. I've never been up to that part of the country so the commute isn't a problem.

No info is up yet for Otakon's AA, but I dunno...Otakon was really stressful for me last year, so I'm not too eager to do it again so soon.
