July Update: AX Recap and

Hello everyone!

I'm so very sorry about the late, late update! I've been caught up with so many things since Anime Expo and I wanted to be in the right mind to write this when I came back. I suppose now is the best time if any. 

I tabled for the first time at AX this year! So crazy, I had never thought to do so for my first year tabling, but it was a great experience! I got to connect with more people, meet more artists, and exceeded my past sales at AX. I could probably go on and on, but I'll list some other highlights:

:bulletpink: I exceeded my previous cons sales without commissions (maybe it's the eye contact. =))!
:bulletpink: Sold out on my Korrasami and Clannad prints! 
:bulletpink: Attended the Special Fate/Stay Night (UBW) event and just stared in awe while Tomonori Sudo (character designer) drew.
:bulletpink: A patron waited for more than an hour for me to return from the Fate event to get my 2nd to last Clannad print before it sold out. That's some dedication, it's beautiful. T_T
:bulletpink: Met, disovered, and/or traded with amazing artists (some of which I've followed on dA for the longest time) like:
:bulletblue: SilentReaper (thank you for the Stupidfox postcard! I'm happy you liked my CCS print. :blush:)
:bulletblue: Weee (aka Raemz) weee_desu@ twitter (traded a poster from her for a friend for CCS) :aww: She's so sweet!

:bulletpink: lenthemuffinman (Thank you so much for the trade! Love the Sora print and Groot charm!) 
:bulletpink: Got some cute cat ears with bells and purple parasol which would go nicely with my yukata. 

My only regret is that I didn't meet and talk to as many artists as I would have liked. I was too busy manning the table. =( Next year for sure though! And YES, I'VE BEEN CONFIRMED ALREADY FOR ANIME EXPO 2016!!! Can't wait to have more than twice what I have now with improved skills + artwork and get another chance to meet more of you! Yayyy!!! 

And why do I seem so confident that I'll be bigger and better next year? Well, because I know art is what I want to do for as long as I can still hold a pencil. Maybe even longer. I want and know I will improve as long as I don't give up and keep fighting for my dream. I've recently signed up for Levelup on, something that I've been meaning to do for a while now. Concept art seems to be the closest type of art I want to master, and given that I have very limited formal art education, I'm sure Levelup with be very beneficial to me. It already has. Feel free to check my studies on my other social media above.

 So to conclude, thank you my old/new watchers for joining me on my journey:

And to every watcher and supporters I have, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! I wouldn't be pushing as hard as I am if it wasn't for your support. :heart: :tighthug: :hug: :glomp:

2 more weeks until Anime Expo! Who's going this year??? (I am at Artist Alley B29, and I'd like to see you there!) 

4 deviants said No, unfortunately, but I wish!
2 deviants said I am! Can't wait! :excited:
1 deviant said See you there! :w00t:
No deviants said No, cons aren't my thing. (Or AX isn't my thing...)
