Winnipeg Tox Expo 2015

where: Viscount Gort Hotel, Winnipeg
when: September 20, 2015

Just a one-day local con. Because I procrastinated so much in reprinting the sold out posters/buttons, I only sold the left overs…. last minute prep, no stress, no expenses, got profit. That’s the best thing I like about local cons haha.

I’m almost out of silk posters and I dunno if I should reproduce them coz I don’t even try to sell them as much as I did when I first have them. I’m being considerate with the buyers.. when I see them concerned with their budget, I offer them the better deal…. which is the regular poster or a smaller print but I always have my silk poster samples ready but yeah.. I was kinda pointing out the cheaper deals… wrong marketing strategy.. :( but oh well, at least they are happy with it and I only lose bigger profit. Only serious fans would buy my silk posters now haha…. and to that one guy earlier who seemed to just bought it just because…. lol… I dunno.. we had a tiny conversation and he seemed nice so he bought one… haha thank you mister! he’s one of the most memorable guy today because I did not understand our conversation and he just ended up buying.. lol.. he did not seem like he’d buy something when he first came to my table haha.. Also met a mother of a Disney artist? WOW… I hope her daughter will love that White Night poster and maybe talk to me……. hahaha *im serious!* Met a bunch of amazing people… including yaoi and hentai fans?! wew……. I dunno how our topic got there and normally talked and laughed about it.. lol.

Anyway.. seriously, I need to work on a new display and new things to display but my heart is still not ready to let go of those Sailor Moon and other illustrations.. we’ll see.

Next con is Anime USA in Washington~ now I really need to reprint posters…. >v<!

Cargo:

I finished my setup early, some idle times and when I got tired of greeting people… no seriously, when I greet them, they go away… omg! but when I just draw, they stay and watch……. it’s not comfy to draw while people are watching… but anyways.. here…

River City Expo 2015 Review

where: Viscount Gort Hotel near Polo Park, Winnipeg
when:  June 21, 2015

Just a 1 day con and it was during Father’s Day and Manitoba Marathon. The con is from 10am-5pm but people started coming around lunch time. It felt like there’s only 4-5 hours sales time. I saw familiar faces and repeat customers (thank you thank you for always trying to buy everything!! lol..) but majority who bought from me are new to my stuff… and probably why I did well despite the not-so-good day was because I’m the only anime booth?……in a comic and toy expo.. lol.. why not? I tried and sort or earned my hotel fare for Otakuthon on August.. but anyways, the admission today was free but there’s not so many people…. because it’s just a not-so-good-day so I guess those who knew about this con went there to buy some cheaper stuff than normal. The table beside me was selling everything in 50% off! Well, it’s fan appreciation day so I kinda gave away some free stickers too.. haha.

The night before the con, I was doing some last minute mounting and counting of the left overs to sell.. lol.

06212015_00And because it’s a fan appreciation day and I kinda honored that, I sold bookmarks/postcards/pins for a $1 each.

And did I mention I was there since 7am to setup my table? Yeah.. I finished my setup after an hour or so and ate breakfast then started scribbling. I ended up finishing 2 pieces today just because there’s just too many idle moments so might as well draw.

06212015_02I’ll get them ready for Otakuthon.. I’ll be working on the others while monitoring some game management jobs and a game design project that I recently accepted. Details about that project next time~ for now, rest and sleep.

Once again, thank you Winnipeg buyers. This’ll be the last con for this year in Winnipeg but I’ll be back next year or the year after for newer artworks!

 

Next convention: Otakuthon – August 7-9, 2015 @ Palais des congrès de Montréal
