I went to the County Pop Culture Con in Greyslake, IL last weekend. It was the slowest con I’ve ever been to so far. I broke even on my table, but in general it wasn’t that great in terms of sales and the distance to travel to the venue.
I filled the time drawing some “test” commissions to warm up and get myself in the flow of drawing. One was to pander like the Deadpool Marker Art, another was for my own amusement with Jotaro Kujo with all of his hats, and another was to see if I could do it quickly like my Detective Pikachu sketch.
My mediocre time doesn’t mean it was a complete bust, I saw some decent cosplay and I made decent enough sales and learn about what’s necessary about my table and how to prep better.
