So Nerdfest 2013 has come and gone, leaving me with my first ever experience of having a table to sell my comics and art.
What can I say? … It was both mind-boggling and amazingly fun. When me and my boyfriend finally arrived we got straight to setting up our table after saying a quick hello to Naniiebim. I felt rather inadequate and vastly unprepared when I compared my own table to fellow exhibitors and artists who had their tables piled with merchandise whilst mine looked rather bare. But it seems it was fine in the end 😀
As the day went on, I really could not have been prepared enough. Business was going very well all throughout the day with people really being interested in WILLOW and the Free! Iwatobi Swim Club stickers being a massive hit 😄 I’ve never had such a chance to speak to so many wonderful people before. One couple even asked my permission to have one of my prints as a tattoo! Seriously for my first convention, I couldn’t have asked for anything better!
I wanna give a huge shout out to all the wonderful artists I met and had a chance to speak to, especially naniiebim, antisnow , MikeJackson, BikerScout, constancearmitage and puddingvalkyrie! Everyone just made my day!
I simply cannot wait for Doki Doki Festival now! 😀
I am very sorry for my lack in updates here on this blog! Please forgive me! So what have I been up to?
