So today was the day I attended VANCAF. A little conventiony type thing for artists and comic artists from around the area. Going into it I didn’t expect much, but I was totally wrong. The place was packed! 2 large rooms with hundreds of artists. Some I recognized and some i never met before.
Everyone was super nice, and I mean REALLY super nice. Had lots of talks with fellow artists about this and that. Found a few who share the same art style and content as me. Believe it or not there were actually a few NSFW artists there. I didn’t think Id actually spend money there, but everyone I met was so nice I couldn’t help but support them. Got a few prints and some awesome buttons!
After talking with this one artist, I asked him how much it is to get a booth there. He told me if you split a table with someone, its only $40. Which is nothing, I honestly thought it would be at least $100. Seeing all these wonderful artists and all, make me think. So next year I’m going to sign myself up for a booth.
Thats right, I’m actually gonna get off my ass and get my work out there. I’ll need to select my best works for prints, get business cards made, but I’m sure it’ll be worth it. Seeing those people gave me confidence to do this and inspiration for me to take things slower and work harder. So until next year, I’m gonna be focusing on the stuff that I want to put out there and only the best. (Commissions will still always be open btw)
I’d like to also thank the following artists who I had a wonderful time talking to and you should probably follow these people. (I was the one in the Decepticon shirt if you remember me)
