: Handmade Cards and Crafts
Now that Fanime 2012 has come and gone I have to say I'm both sad and relieved. I had such a GREAT time! I got to meet some awesome people, hang out with some awesome people, and then it was over and it was total sadness. It was especially sad since I apparently got some nerd flu/allergy hybrid that is still plaguing me. It totally knocked me out for most of last week and it made work really...tough lol. But thankfully my work is awesome and they were really understanding (even told me to go home a couple of times). I'm still not feeling great and it's been very up and down but it's definitely better than where I was earlier this week. (Fevers are not fun, just sayin')
Thank you thank you to everyone who came by my table whether you purchased something or not! It's always great to just know that people are interested in your art and crafts and randomness.
You've made this doodler's ego explode a few times here and there and it's a really great feeling.
I really hope I can get a table at FAnime again next year. I've been going to that thing for ages (6 yrs now? More?) I still remember the good ol' days when it was tiny and held at the Santa Clara Convention Center and Artist Alley was literally 10-20 artists in the alley between the different rooms. Crazy sauce. And it's all thanks to
who started it all for me.
I really got inspired to do much better art and have a less ghetto display but I just wish I had more time. It's really tough to compete against all those young artists who are younger, more talented, more practiced, and a lot cuter haha. I need to figure out better angles to set myself apart since my doodles definitely aren't going to do it. I just wish I also had more table space! I had all this jewelry I wanted to sell but had no place to put it
2'x6' tables are way too tiny. I gotta admit, one great thing about smaller cons like SacAnime and SNAFU is that I get my table space. I have to pay more for it at SacAnime but in the end I guess it's worth it.
So my next con is August 31-Sept 2nd at SacAnime. I was thinking about doing another one in between if I could but just realized I have to put my nose to the grinder and study for that stupid ugly TEAS test to apply for nursing school. Blegh. Someone save me from this tragic life and be my Sugar Daddy (or Mommy, I don't discriminate) so I can doodle and craft for the rest of my life. I'll totally make it worth it *cough* So I may go dark again whilst I study but I'll definitely throw in a new print and some new buttons. And of course, MORE ONIGIRI! I have already been chided for not having Loki as part of my Avengers set and I definitely need to do more Marvel/DC ones.
I am ALWAYS open to new ideas for Onigiri so please please tell me who you want to see! (Especially if you'll buy them *cough*) =3
Commissions OPEN but only for Long-term projects! I am too busy at the moment and can't promise a finish product except for a few months from now. If you are ok with that please NOTE me
If you like what you see in my Gallery, please also check out my Scraps. It's...scrappy but there are a few things i like in there ^.^
