Videos and conventions

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 21, 2012, 1:55 PM

I've uploaded a new drawing video of one of my latest pieces ^^
:star::star: :star::star:
I've preserved everything to the best of my ability to demonstrate what it's like for me to work on a detailed piece for 30 hours. It's not meaningful to watch it in its entirety because it gets repetitive really fast, but I've always wondered how something like this would be like for a lot of artists I follow, so I figured I would make one myself. More info about the video is in the video comment!

And there are a few other new videos as well in my channel that I didn't post here about (:

I'm starting to apply for conventions for this year. I had intended to go to anime boston but decided against it last minute ): The first confirmed convention is Anime North in May! I'm applying to a few others too but seeing how fighting for space in AA these days is a bloody battle to the death, I'm going to wait until I have confirmation and payment processed for each con before saying I'm going haha ;; I wish there were more cons in Canada because going to the states sucks LOL... I hate being treated like a criminal ugh

Other updates

tables for fanexpo are already open, I got mine and it's confirmed. but they are getting really expensive tho.

I'll be going to boston, but the tax rule made things complicated for alot of people. I add to get a us tax number (waited 2hrs to get the line since I'm a canadian resident.) process was long, but boston is really a good place. you should try it once. but tables are hard to get too

Treated like a criminal? You mean the border control? XD
Yeah, the US is unfortunately pretty pyscho about such things these days...

Saw your new video! I drew alongside it. :3

;A; Sorry our border people treat you like a criminal. I don't understand why they let in people that need to stay out but give harmless visitors a hard time. WHAT IS LOGIC?
Good luck with all the applications and everything!!

Aaah I wish I could go to Anime North... Maybe next year.

Have you considered trying to go about the guest approach at conventions?
You're so well established on DA and with your comic that you might be able to.
I think you'd make a great art guest.

I think you'd be required to run some panels though, but that could just go towards help spreading your work more and meeting new people :)

don't guests need to get invited XD? and that wouldn't change anything about the trouble I encounter at the border either @_@
Spoonful0fcats Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012
I believe so. Maybe if you inform your followers "If you'd like to see me at a convention near you, request to see me as a guest :) !" or something of that sort?

I wish the whole border system wasn't the way it is...What happened last time? They don't get all suspicious because of your luggage do they?!(which is..uh artist alley stuff :< ! )
