I am doing a terrible job keeping this updated you guys ;A; I'm so sorry. I used to be so good at this!

First off, thanks to everyone who stopped by at JAFAX, DashCon, and Otakon this summer! It's been a crazy few months, with work being a nightmare and prepping for more cons than usual... so...

It's time for an episode of THINGS YOU MISSED IN THE WORLD OF JESS!

:bulletyellow: Went to JAFAX! What an amazing weekend! I'm definitely adding it into my yearly con schedule. The people were wonderful, the space was wonderful, the whole thing was wonderful. Good all around!

:bulletyellow: After JAFAX was the now infamous DashCon. It's been a month and by now, you've seen all the rumors about what happened at the most disastrous convention ever put together. I can tell you that most of it is true (though I can't confirm if someone peed in the ball pit. But the ball pit existed.). As an attendee, I heard people had a good time despite the craziness. But as a vendor, it was awful. The best thing about the weekend was hooking up with so many other artists and griping about what a trainwreck the weekend turned out to be. I hope the staff gets a lawyer for next year's event... if there still is a DashCon 2015.

:bulletyellow: On the ride home from DashCon, as my roomies/studiomates and I were griping about the weekend... ToxicStarStudio and I got an email from Otakon, saying there were a few tables left. We jumped on the opportunity and got in at the LAST MINUTE. I had hoped to spend July reworking my webstore and figuring out new products for you guys, but instead I had to crank out a bunch of original art as fast as possible to make my portfolio more even for Otakon's 50/50 policy. It was a crazy few weeks, which led up to...

:bulletyellow: Otakon itself! I was super excited going into the weekend - it's the second biggest anime convention in the country, and it's been around forever and has a huge following so I thought it'd be a very profitable weekend for me. Little did I know this year was going to be a bit of a disaster. Registration took two and a half hours JUST to get my artist badge (and attendees were in line for longer! FOR PRE-REG!); we had some issues with one of the staff members (which I won't go into detail, but let's just say being bullied is NOT a good way to keep your artists coming back); and due to the registration issues, sales were dismal at the start of the weekend. Not going to state numbers, but let's just say I did about as well as I did at YoumaCon this past year - a con that's 1/3 the size and 1/3 the distance for me. I had to take a week off of work for Otakon, and it was not worth it. I most likely will not be returning to Otakon for some time. The good news, though, is I met a ton of great people who loved the new work I cranked out, and I met a ton of great artists! I would love to do more East Coast cons for sure - it's an area I don't get to visit very often, so if you'd like to see me out there just let me know and I'll try to get into some cons in that area!

:bulletyellow: And now the present! In a 9 short days is Geek.kon, right here in Madison. I don't have a lot of work to do (just some restocking!), so it'll be a relaxing week of prep before a small local con. Also, IcyPanther1 is coming to stay with us that weekend! I'm excited for some nerding!

I think that's all kids. After Geek.kon is Youma and Daisho to round out my con year. Hope to see you there!

I tour the Midwest anime convention circuit with my bffs and studiomates ToxicStarStudio and rainbowpunk10 - sometimes we go by "Skulls and Rainbows", sometimes we just go by our usernames, but at all times you can call me "Jess".

This one time I got mildly internet famous for some weird meme, I think it was the "Keep Calm" thing? I don't know. Totally weird though.
