The bad: None of this is actually has to do with the Con proper.
a) I overslept a bit and missed my shuttle pickup to LAX, and had to take a taxi instead.
b) I had a big steak dinner on my first night in Charlotte and clogged up my hotel toilet that evening.
c) Still fine-tuning the cross-country show traveling, I brought change of underwear and only the clothes on my back to maximize space for everything else in my luggage and carry-ons (whew).
d) Didn’t travel with my banner.
e) Didn’t have issue No.3 of Unstoppable Tuff-Girl ready.
3) People like my stuff - of those who stopped at my table.
2) A table facing the back wall isn’t as bad as you may expect (if you’re close to the middle of the room).
1) Made contact with several artists with whom I hope to collaborate on an upcoming project.
- My Supergirl and Batgirl team up art (ink and color pencil, see below) donated to the art auction was awarded to only a starting bid of only $100. (What?) Since I’m not likely to be bigger name by the 2015 Con, I’ll have to do something bigger and rendered to win higher bids.
- Free buttons continue to be snatched up by passersby’s, but poor ‘Little Tuffy’ buttons continue to be last picks.
- 15 collector sketch cards themed with character mash-up of Disney Princesses and Marvel heroines and Femme Fatals turn heads and bring smiles. (Note to self: do more sketch cards ahead of cons, do more mash-ups, do more sketch card themes). More on this in a future post.
- Elsa and Anna from Frozen continue to be popular requests for commission sketches.
- Got to spend about 20 hours in Atlanta following a 5 hour bus trip from Charlotte. I ate a lot here and viewed the Dream Cars exhibit at the High Museum.
