Yep yep, Sakura Con went well last weekend! Hellooooo to anyone who picked up a business card and followed it here :D It was awesome meeting new people, and also meeting people from DA! There ought to be DA member shirts, where you can print your icon on them....I probably met still more awesome people without even REALIZING it. o_O

I was happy to find that a good number of my originals sold this year in addition to the fan art ^_^ And sort of happy/guilty to find that people still remembered Undertow and are wondering about updates (THERE WILL BE SOME, I SWEAR). I have some prints left over, but I have not yet learned the secret art of mailing them without mauling them! Maybe someday.

:3 Okay, back to reading my latest manga acquisitions and catching up on sleep!

I'm A genius! after obtaining one of your awesome prints in person, you gave me aforementioned (yes it is a word) Business card. And you see, I took said business read it, and after an incredible journey through time and space I finally unlocked the secrete of the card! The Deviant ID at the bottom! Which I then Typed into the search bar and was lead here! To this very page! And, well here I am. Genius obviously @_@

Sorry if that was annoying, I'm Random like that. Thanks for Signing my copy of your art for me. I thought it was going to Hecka Extra $_$ Its was also nice to share a conversation and slow down for a second ^_^

I wanted to go, but they wanted $35 just for me to come in on Friday! I really only wnated to come in and check out the artists alley, and I thought a Friday only pass would be cheaper.

I work in the building next door, and wanted to come in and see the dealer's room and artist alley. I was expecting $15 to $20, and at $35 I wouldn't have had any money left over to spend :(

Maybe next year.... sounds like fun. I did see some awesome costumes outside in the buildings plaza at least!

Yeah, I think Sunday's the cheapest (the con only goes 'til 3pm so it's really just a half-day). It is kinda pricey though - $35 for one day, and $40 for 3? Not much choice there T_T

Well, paying at the door was $60 for the whole weekend. Next year I'll just register in advance (couldn't do that this year as I've just moved up from Utah and I'm still kinda broke....)

Ugh! I didn't know you were there! I was in the Artists Alley as well. The air was being recirculated so badly there, I came down with laryngitis on Saturday around noon. It got me so bad, I had to take today off from work.
How were your sales? Mine were weird. I made lots of sales on Friday, did ok on Saturday and bad on Sunday. Usually, I make more $$ on Saturdays. :(

Oh hey yeah! I think I caught a glimpse of your art :D I barely left my table, so I only got to browse AA for a little while...sucks that you got sick!!! I noticed the air was SUPER dusty...you could tell when they turned on the fans, and it wasn't often :/ Hope you feel better.
My sales were not so hot on Friday, but picked up quite nicely Saturday, and Sunday was surprisingly busy too. (Usually Sundays are my worst...I wasn't too optimistic for an Easter Sunday, but I guess it worked out!)
In general though I thought the new location really hurt traffic...my sales went well enough to make a nice little profit, but it was only a third of what it was from the Skybridge days :/ Kind of disappointed about that part.

I have mixed feelings on the new location. Yes, it was nice and huge, but it was way out there. I hear that they might move the Artist Alley to the registration room next year.

Ooo, I hope so! The closer to the dealer's hall, the better, in my opinion. Being on the 6th floor, opposite end, behind all the panel rooms...with very little signage until you were already THERE...painful for us poor artists :( I am glad they're offering more tables, though, since they sell out in a matter of seconds. @_@

I agree that the AA location was unfortunate this year. Didn't have a booth myself, but hiding you guys all the way at the top wasn't kind -_-

I love the idea of having a way to identify fellow DA subscribers! I think next year I'll be making myself a badge with DA's/my icon on it^^

Grats to those of you who did manage a profit =D Hope it was enough to satisfy your own splurge purchases^^

:D DA icons on badges = great idea!!! I think I'll do the same!

I tried to curb my spending so I didn't blow all my profits...only bought 3 mangas, and commissioned a crochet plushie from one of the tables behind mine (she had great stuff, I couldn't resist!)
