It's not too far away, Jan 15-17. There is something special to us about Ohayocon. It was my first anime convention, or convention in general I ever attended, back in 2011. It was the first convention I ever sold at, back in 2013. Although looking back now I don't really think we were really quite ready then for what we were getting into, but you have to start someplace, and they were gracious enough to allow that. I'm incredibly thankful for that opportunity, and that they have continued to do so the past four years. Hopefully my skills have increased at least a little bit since then, and that I have learned a thing or two about selling at a convention. But the one thing that has not changed is the excitement waking up in the early hours Friday morning and loading up the car and heading to Columbus. From the smell of convention center, The hotel (usually the Drury), The food court ( will miss Noble Romans pizza, not because it was that good, just that it was a tradition), running into all my artist and con friends (usually taking a long walk and getting Chicago style deep dish pizza at Fabians), and everything else that is familiar about it, Ohayocon is like an old friend I get to see once a year. And guess what, it's not too far away
Goodbye 2016. Hello 2017!
Well this seems like a good time to do a brief year in review. It was a good year. We did some new shows, Anime Central, Wizard World Cleveland, and Heroescon among others. A big thank you to our local comic shop, Bill's Books and More for allowing us to set up there on free comic day, as well as the various other times when they have had sales. It is always a good time working on commissions, eating pizza, and chatting up the staff throughout the day. I bid a fond farewell to Otakon in Baltimore, there will never be anything quite like the feeling of that convention in that city. It was my second anime con that I ever attended, and it was al
Anime Central is coming up and after that Tricon!!
Anime Central will be happening May 20-22, and my excitement is off the chart! I've never been to the Chicago area, ever. So this is providing a great reason to check it out and sell some comics to an audience we have never reached, previously. Brandon's been wanting to do this one for a while. Last year we didn't quite make it in, but thankfully this year it worked out! We should have some new books, as well as a few new prints ready for the con. If anyone one is going to be out there, stop by the booth and say hi. We always love meeting fans! And two weeks after that is Tricon! It's an absolutely fantastic comic convention ran by true comi
Cons, cons, and more cons!
Okay that makes it sound like waaaay too many. This saturday Mar 21st Brandon and I will be at Animarathon in beautiful Bowling Green Ohio! Okay I've never been there but I can imagine it will be quite nice. We will be hanging out, selling books , and doing our normal shenanigans. Then a tiny week later Mar 28th I will at Gem City Comicon in lovely Dayton Ohio with the Broken Icon Comics crew promoting the upcoming Traitor's Grace miniseries as well as doing commissions and whatever dirty jobs needs done! Then two weeks after that on April 11, Tricon in Hunington West Virginia! Brandon will be there as well as Broken Icon Comics. So in one ar
Ohayocon 2015 and other news!
Well it's almost a month until Ohayocon 2015, where we will travel to the Columbus convention center and sell some comics! We should have a new version a Zokusho volume one, with over one hundred pages of new or changed artwork, as well as a sketchbook and Crossiers that will further explain the world of Zokusho. Brandon and I have been wanting to do this for a while and we finally set forth on this quest eight months ago. It was along journey, but I believe worth it. It should make it a lot easier for someone to pick up the volume and not have to wonder why is this or what is that, because it is explained. I should hopefully have Shadowviel
