Reflecting on the Crunchy

Welp! I can add another notch to my Artist Alley experience with Crunchyroll Expo. In short – my sales were fair, but I had a lot of fun as I did with the year I was doing Fanime. I met some fabulous artists – even some I’ve been following ’round the interwebs – so I had some slight star-struck moments.

Why yes, we ARE artists!

Though my friend and were a bit  more prepared setup-wise, we did still feel like amateurs. Because – WOW, if you’ve been to any Artist Alley, you know there are some impressive displays! But this time, we had a good stock on variety and I thought our table looked pretty good.

The fun part.

Oh, a bit of this and a bit of that…

The crowd itself seemed a bit more mellow than I expected, but perhaps that can be attributed to this being the first con from Crunchyroll. That did give my tablemate/pal and I some time to peruse the rest of the convention.

The Exhibitor’s hall was cool, but I was absolutely more impressed with Artist Alley! It was a very humbling, but also learning experience – I’d chat with a few of the fellow artists, get some tips on printing, supplies, setup, and just generally praise their work because holy cow…there are just some AMAZING pieces out there!

This being my third tabling experience – I’m still ever a rookie learning the ropes. Do I want to do this again? Absolutely.

But until my next table, I’ll continue to improve my work and hope to keep in touch with the fellow artists I’ve met!

No, THIS is the fun part. Taking EVERYTHING down. Sigh…

If you weren’t able to come say hi at Crunchyroll Expo, I’m always on Twitter and Instagram!

Getting Crunchy at Crunchyroll Expo

It’s that time again! My THIRD time tabling at an Artist Alley. This time at Crunchyroll Expo August 25-27.

For the past few months I’ve been working on new pieces to feature on prints, buttons, and…wha…keychains!

If you’ve seen my last post, I’m toting a bunch of these guys along and hope they’ll find new homes.

G’day.

I hope you’ll come by if you’re attending. I’ll be sharing the table with my pal & fellow artist – and she’s got some great stuff to check out too!

Of course, I’ll be tweeting and Instagramming my happenings during the con.

But if you’re not able to attend and you’d like to support what I do, come visit my Etsy and Ko-fi pages – any contribution will definitely help wrangle in supplies and will put a smile on my face knowing my stuff makes you smile!
