Virtually a month after Kentokyocon, I’m heading out to a con again–this time in Atlanta, GA.
Preparations were not without hitches this time, however. I was only able to have one new picture done in time for printing (I had wanted two), neglected to check my business cards until it was too late to order more, and had a general sense of inferiority setting in, feeling like I wouldn’t have enough of anything and wouldn’t be interesting enough to people walking by.
But a lot of good is coming out of this experience already, and it’s hardly even begun. We’ve ordered and/or picked up lots of new things such as clothing, a paper cutter, a rolling cart, and more that should help make this con go even smoother for us, even though they are small things. (And I have plenty of new things to write reviews on too!) We have realized big, mental roadblocks that have been causing us to sabotage ourselves in our respective walks, and our goals, and perhaps now we will be able to move forward at a pace a little better than a snail’s crawl.
For this weekend, we are praying for good health and, of course, good sales, as I’m sure everyone else is! Of course I hope the other artists do well too. ^^ But I am also praying that we will be able to take what we learn, realize, and have already realized from this trip back home and put it into action. This will be our fourth con (third if you count MTAC twice) and each time we go, we learn a lot. Each area is different and has different tastes, for example; different prints sell better at different places.
Anyway! We arrived yesterday and today we’re just hanging out. In fact, the only thing we have to do is pick up our badges; everything else is optional. We may set up our table but we aren’t sure yet.
Starting tomorrow, I’ll be here–table 1072!
I’ve picked out a few panels I may try to go to, but I should be at the table for most of the time. ^^
If you’re free and in Atlanta this weekend, please come by!
