Hey everyone! This is my attempt at doing at least one post a week. Since we just got done with our first con of the year I figured this would be a good opportunity to talk about our time at SwampCon 2013.
It was pretty rad, surprisingly. When we set up last year we didn’t do too well, but we couldn’t complain since it was a free table. This was their second year doing the con, and it was much better! Saturday was super packed and we did a lot of business. I was surprised because I went in thinking this was just another anime con, and we weren’t going to make any money, and I thought we had learned our lesson on that. But nothing could be further from the truth. There were a lot of people there who really dug Kate’s art and our comics! RAD!
Kate also had the opportunity to be part of a panel discussion about comic book publishing with our friend Andre Frattino. I didn’t get to see the panel (since I had to stay at our table), but I heard it went great. After the first day ended, we went out to eat with Andre and some friends at Reggae Shack. It’s a Jamaican themed restaurant. I had the boneless curry chicken. It was spicy.
Day 2 was a bit slower, but I had the opportunity to scetch out some Hall Monitors pages. Kate got a few commssions, which can be seen below, and we sold a good amount of prints and comics. Overall we made way more than I expected, considering the heavy presence of anime at this convention. We’ll probably be back next year… if they’ll have us.
That’s about all I can get away with typing while I’m at work. I should probably get back to doing worky things like work. See you guys in the next post!
