Conventions. Trade Shows technically (or so my state comptroller refers to them as). Over the last 6 years or so, I’ve been attending a lot more of these as an artist. Mostly I do a lot of character images, and portraits, at Japanese animation and game conventions (yes. Anime Cons, to you fellow otaku) under the table name “That’s So Cute” Buttons… because I put the artwork on buttons.
And people say they’re cute.
… Anyway. I attend a lot of cons along the east coast (And I’m always looking for new ones, big or small). I’ve also been trying to include some comic specific — or, in one case, online media — conventions, which will probably wind up under “Rival Hearts”.
So, here is a look at my busy schedule so far…
