First of all… four year olds do not belong at anime conventions. πŸ˜€ Kim did well for most of it, but there were periods where she became very obstinate and upset. Thankfully, today was the only day she had to be there. πŸ˜€ It was cute when she was helping me put magnets on the comic book rack and giving me books to put on it.

Second, … I’m happy that my neighbor is Antarctic Press. πŸ˜€ Even more happy that they don’t mind that I’m their neighbor. I got to spend some time chatting with Rod Espinosa, someone whose work I greatly admire amidst the few comic book artists/writers I admire… ok, it seems like I tend to think well about all of the ones I meet personally. I have several copies of his books autographed, but I never really follow comics outside of collecting them at conventions. Even when I like them. The last comics I’ve bought are the Mouse Guard (Thank you, Jasmine, for the first set. πŸ™‚ and a couple of Independents. I’m just usually too busy to even remember I like something and then to buy it. :/

So far, the convention has been great. I’ve sold a few books… and my husband sold a free pen to someone πŸ˜€ I find that a bit hilarious. He sold it for $2 and hoped I wasn’t selling them for $5. I’ve been giving them away to people who say they are readers. πŸ˜‰ I think I need to make pens to sell next year. I’ve completed four commissions and have two to finish, one that I’m working on as soon as I finish this post.
