Holy cow, was this a crazy day. Thankfully Id already lugged my crap into the artist alley the night before, so I was fully prepared in that respect, but after setting up my meager table, I knew not what awaited me:
And to start off… woo yeah, slow going. people barely each stopped to look at the prints, almost as if they were afraid of some sort of punishment for touching it! I’ll have to find a friendlier way to show off the prints next time.
The comics were getting some good look-over time, though I began to doubt the idea was good. After I while I started to get really bored while con-goers waddled about the floor, and not looking at my stuff, Kara, Witney and Cali, my partners in crime, assured me that friday’s were always slow, and it always picks up on Saturday.
While this may be true,I became extremely restless, and decided to wander the floor with my good friend Tom, who I’d known for years via the information super highway, and so we decided to visit the dealer’s room to find the true treasure I was searching for:
After that small spurt, and a recharge of the tummy-tank, I was back in the alley, and I’d learned that some folk had stopped by to see me! And they left their names on my guestbook.
So, I started sketching Captain’ K’nuckles, since I really didn’t have anything going on, and I left the sketch on the table, and THAT caught people’s attention! Suddenly people would actually stop in their tracks to see me! I’d stumbled on a secret weapon…
But then I decided to go get inebreated with Tom and watch the dub of Evangelion 1.0, and that was pretty sweet. Afterwards, we were going to a panel about voice acting, but the line was too damned long, so we decided to part ways and get some sleep.
A perfect end to a perfect day! Perhaps tommorow will show prominence?! FIND OUT SOON!
(Note: The Otakon Experience is atleast 10% time spent waiting on lines to see something, it’s a must, since there’s about 30,000 nerds running about the damned place!)
