This weekend I attended my first real comic convention. Well, by attended I mean participated. I got a booth and attempted to sell my artwork. Overall, the convention was a success. Not because I sold a lot of product; I didn’t; but, because I learned a ton about the process. I met some great creators as well.
It’s a grueling process. These conventions. When I first arrived I couldn’t help but notice how awesome all the artists were around me. I was immediately intimidated by the level of talent. But, as I started to settle in, and met some of the creators, I was extremely pleased at how helpful everyone was. I mean, at the end of the day, we are each other’s competition. But, there is a genuine want for each other to succeed.
The overall goal I had set for myself, last year, was to get 15 poster pieces together and to attend MegaCon in 2017. So, it’s pretty much a given that I’ll achieve that goal. After that is complete, I’ll move on to the next.
Anyway, I’d like to give a big shout out to Bohdan, Gabby and Daniel. Two great creators who taught me a lot at this year’s Supercon Retro. Here are their Instagram’s. Give them a follow.
