I maybe should be writing a prologue after set up tomorrow, but it will be a pretty busy day and I don't think I will have time to sit down and write a proper entry. I don't know how this convention will go. I am getting nervous about it as the time approaches. I am always excited about conventions when they are still a ways off, haha. Last year, Rose City was a bust for everyone in our social circle. If I remember correctly I only sold two small prints all weekend. But I had fun tabling at it anyway, it was my second convention; but my first 'major' one. I had fun talking to people and running around to look at all the merch for sale. And speculating why Adam Hughes looked so miserable across from us "I have to draw beautiful women all day, what a drag..." haha.
Since Jake and I are sharing a table that isn't that big to begin with, we decided to make our display a little taller than usual, I hope this wont prove to be completely disastrous, haha. Prints of Sexy Birdo falling on everyone's heads, chaos ensuing. Last year we thought we had a fairly good table location, even though we didn't sell much. It was right in the main aisle where everyone first walked in. This year our table is in what might be the worst location in all of Artist's Alley. It is literally right at the mouth of the celebrity area where people will be lining up. I know what you're thinking, 'But Jaymz, don't you want people lining up and stuck in front of your booth forced to look at your stuff?' It sounds good in theory, but my experience has been that when people line up for something else in front of your table, they are just blocking traffic and they don't buy anything because they're saving their money for whatever they're in line for. But who knows, maybe everyone in line will see Sexy Birdo and want ten copies for friends, haha.
I'm planning to dye my hair today and get a haircut tomorrow so I can look my finest for everyone, I hope some of you will be coming to the convention so I can meet you. I will have copies of Split Screen as well as my Willem teaser comics and a buttload of prints. I wish I had some Devil Spy stuff to promote but as of right now, I don't have anything. I will be sure to update my business cards after this show since the old ones only have links to Willem and Split Screen, but I do have some Deviantart flyers too.
In other news, I have been working on comics and writing over the past two weeks. It's nice to be back in the swing of things! I have written a lot more of Willem but it's still not nearly enough, haha. I'll be wrapping up Lightspeed Lad's little flashback in the next three pages or so. I love drawing LL the most, so I'll be a little sad when I have to move on, haha. But I am looking forward to drawing the rest of the team again, especially Moonshadow, he is just so small and cute and such a pain in the ass. And it shouldn't be too long 'till we get into Willem and (part of) Wallflower's backstory.
What else would you guys enjoy seeing from me? I am open to suggestions (not requests, mind you!).
I'll be writing another journal entry after the convention to let y'all know how everything went. What are your plans for the weekend?
