My Time at Comic Con Revolution Chicago 2019

I had a decent time at Comic Con Revolution Chicago 2019! This convention was a smaller convention than I thought it would be but it was alright.

I shared a table with ScottyArtz and it was okay. We mostly just riffed on cool art, video games, and he explained hardcore Super Smash Bros. play to me.

I sold books like Incident at the Game Store and Shirley’s Day, butI sold very little art or comic books in general to overcome the costs to buying the table space and travel expenses be made.

I also managed to knock out a commission for Mochireru.

I saw some decent cosplays of characters I actually like. I’m not big into cosplay stuff, but usually I take a picture if the character peaks my intrest.

I got a cool new haul, courtesy by Brian Babendererde, EB Mead, and Andrew Taam.

Anime Central and More!

I went to Anime Central 2019 last weekend to hang out and enjoy myself for once. A friend of mine offered me one of his extra passes, so he convinced me to stop by.

It was an overall more satisfying convention to me compared to when I went last year. I bought plenty of stuff like a Jojo Plushie and a bag piece and blank white skyn to draw on from Equilibrium USG.

I touched back with a few personal friends, got some help and feedback on my comic work from someone I frequently look to for advice, attended an interesting panel about Japan’s Doujinshi scene, tried out the XP-Pen display tablets at their booth and did some digging for new conventions to attend soon and best friend tried an anime dubbing audition with Bang Zoom! Entertainment.

I’ll drop another reminder that I’ll be at County Pop Culture Con on Saturday, May 25th at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Greyslake, Illinois and Comic Con Revolution Chicago on Saturday, June 1st and Sunday 2nd at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center Rosemont, IL!
