And now here's the second convention this month: MiniComi!
It's a one day artists market (inspired by the comic markets in Japan) that's gonna be happening this Saturday (July 19) in Olympic Village in Vancouver, British Columbia. The event runs from 10:00 am 'til 5:00 pm and it's totally free to attend (yaaaay, free shows!). There's gonna be quite a few workshops from bead crafts to origami, cosplay walks and even some live music performances which should be pretty cool.
I'll be there with all my artsy wares (mini-comics, prints, buttons, bookmarks, greeting cards, sketch cards etc.) so come on down, don't be shy and give me a shout! :-)
Well, look at that! I've got not one but two cons happening this month! First one is (well, like the title states) The Summer Festival! It's happening this Saturday (holy crap, that's tomorrow!) at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia from 2:00 PM 'til late. Did I mention that this is a totally FREE event? Yeah, that's pretty freakin' awesome!
There's a really cool vibe to this one that I'm really looking forward to experiencing. It's like an anime convention meets a summer fair complete with carnival games, watermelon smashing and raffle prizes to be won...including a brand spanking new Wii U with "Mario Kart 8" because hey,
I would've called this entry "Uberweekend!" but alas, there were only so many letters I could fit in the title.
Anyways, have I got the weekend lineup coming up!
First off, if you happen to be in downtown Vancouver from 4:00 'til 8:00, head on down to My Sister's Closet where I'll be making my buttons on site as part of their Prevention of Violence Against Women Week events. It's a really great cause and it's absolutely worth checking out. For more information, check out this link.
Secondly, I'm coming back to Fan Expo Vancouver!
No, I won't be selling my art but I'll most definitely be roaming the convention crowds geeking out with the b
