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…

Winnipeg Comic and Toy Expo 2012

where: Canad Inns Polo Park, Winnipeg

when: March 3-4, 2012

my first con this year.. it was small and cheap but sales went well.. i was the only anime artist in the place….. >v<! that really made me feel out of place coz everyone’s selling comic stuff and not much related to anime.. duh…. it’s a comic and toy expo… OTL but it was worth going since the point is to make some profit.. now i can buy my roundtrip to toronto for anime north.. heheh…. @v@

I was planning to make my set up like in c4 with the cages on the side for my posters but i was busy fixing up my applications to game companies so i was not able to prepare for this con.. i cant find the cages i used before so i just used the stands…. it was an easy set up.. and luckily the table was good enough without a table cloth coz i didnt expect that a hotel venue wont provide clothes for tables.. XD anyways.. the only downside with this set up is that i wasnt able to display all my posters… i had way too many images for posters.. >v< but some of them are out of stock anyways and at least the table was big enough to have space for the stands.. i got a huge stand behind me displaying bigger posters.. it was useful and im happy to sell some old huge posters coz of that.. *^^*

i wasnt able to take lots of pics coz there’s not that many people.. but here are some pics in my facebook album

Something unexpected happen in this con.. I guess im used to people taking my pics but a guy came to me asking for a couple shots.. he then emailed me with the pics saying my pic was in the monday’s Winnipeg Free Press.. (where? in the news paper!) >v<

special thanks to Paolo and Janine for manning the table with me.. and to James for buying the newspaper.. lol.. =P

eeh… what else to report….. there’s a lot of antique toys and super sale manga from $4 each or 3 for $10.. nothing much caught my interest other than the sailor v manga.. but i didnt want to buy an on-going series so i’ll wait til the box set is available.. =P

overall, it was pretty much a successful con for me.. i didnt spend anything on my merch.. everything was just the left overs so the profit was great so now i can re-order stocks and print new images and a plane ticket for the next con.. @v@

next con: anime north..! im excited i got the full table but will probably share to a friend who’s in the waiting list.. unless they get lucky, i can occupy the whole table.. :>
