Well it's been a while since my last entry, just been busy with work and school as always. Anime Expo was pretty exciting, by my speculation there was even more in attendance this year. I got to set up my new equipment for the first time and it looked way more professional then my janky white cages
. I was a little out of the way this time, closer to the corner but I did meet a lot of interesting people. Some of the people I had met at Fanime also paid me a visit at AX, always good to see old customers. Btw, for future reference feel free to chat it up with me, I think I'm a friendly guy haha.
Anyways AX was a good venture both for financial and leisurely agendas.
As for Kintoki, little bit on the slow side but I had fun just kicking my feet up and relaxing for a change. It was a good break from the chaos that occurred at Fanime and the hectic-ness of Anime Expo. I know I should have talked to my table neighbors more but I'm still a little bit on the shy side when meeting new table artists. I'll say this much though, they were really nice people, they gave out food a lot o.O. Next time I'll be sure to bring something good to share.
I also debuted my completed New Age Blue Spirit (I wanted to wear it to AX but sadly the chest armor was not completed yet) and signed up for a photo-shoot. I am very eager to see the photos, the staff over at "At a Whim Photography" were really professional. I'll post them up as soon as I get them.
Lastly, Future Conventions
I am confirmed for Japan Expo which takes place on August 23-25 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Table Placements haven't been confirmed but I will update this journal entry once I get it. I am going to try to create some new art pieces for this event but it's a 50/50 at the moment since my desktop pc hasn't comeback from the repair shop yet.
Currently, I am looking for more conventions since when it hits the second half of the year, conventions start to slow down. If you have a suggestion, feel free post it up on this Journal or send me a note.
