It’s been a long summer for sure and yet, it went by in a hot second! Bob and I are spending the fall season “homeless” in Texas, with plans to travel to California, Mexico, probably back to NYC, London??? and maybe even Taiwan again for a minute, so we decided “why have an apartment?” SO I’ve spent the last week or two slowly filling orders (I’m lucky and thankful) while also slowly filling in the shop with new items I came out with during this con season! How exciting!
One thing I’ve noticed that is starting to deeply disturb me is the ATROCIOUS LIGHTING in every artist alley ever. Like, I get it that we’re always in a convention center or hotel, this isn’t really like a shock but it’s starting to bother me. Whose prints look good in this lighting???? Look at me. I look like an alien who has just eaten the blood of an enemy (ie colourpop avenue ultra matte lipstick) (side note: do not recommend that lipstick)
I’m currently getting ready for AnimeFest (my last Artist Alley of the season, as of now) but I also just got back from Mechacon- seriously doing back-to-back conventions is insane. I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off here trying to scramble together a whole convention’s worth of stock BUT I’LL MANAGE. In the meantime, have some Mechacon feels!
I’ll start off by saying that ANext was fine, and I almost met my goal and certainly came out ahead. But I’ll then go on to say, “meh”- a meh heard around the alley.
