Stamps I Support

(Renovation in progress)

Back from the Crystal Fair and watched EG-FG

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 28, 2015, 5:26 PM

-and what a weekend it was! The only thing that really sucked about it was that my seasonal allergies were acting up (of all the weekends for that to happen). I had learned a lot about being a vendor. Here is a more detailed list of how things went.

Friday: Arrived early to set up my table. I already had an idea of how to set it up, but it didn't go according to plan. I was still able to make a presentable display. The first day was kinda slow. I sold 0 prints. I think all I did sell was 3 sketch commissions and a button XD It seems for con-goers, Friday is the day for going into scope-mode. Makes sense, right? After the vendor halls closed, I had to go fake being the GoH for the Crystal Ball XD I had no idea it was that night and thought it was Saturday. Luckily, I had my dress-clothes, just in case. At first, I hesitated because I didn't know what I was supposed to do or say, but once things got started, I was able to cut loose. That's one of the best things about cons, you can really be yourself and no one is there to judge you. I'm glad I did this, it really helped me come out of my shell.

Saturday: I was naturally sore from the Ball.  Things picked up a little more. I sold more buttons and sketch commissions and a few prints. Afterwards, I hung out in the halls and waited for the voice-acting panel with Lee Tocker. I made a sketch for him featuring Steven Magnet, Mustachioed-Snips (reference to Boast Busters and Gummy) and he was kind enough to give me a free autograph in return (usually you have to pay for that at conventions). He's a really nice guy, very generous. He spent a lot of the con promoting and supporting the available charities. How appropriate that he gave a voice to Steven Magnet as he interacted with Rarity, the embodiment of generosity in Friendship is Magic:Part 2. I was great meeting him!

Sunday: It went about the same as Saturday. Sold a few more prints and some more buttons. I FINALLY sold a couple of my "WAZZUP" badges. I wasn't going to take any more sketch commissions originally, but I didn't have much else to do, so I took a couple more before the vendor hall closed. After that, was the Charity Auction. There was a lot of great stuff. I managed to snag an autographed copy of A BRONY TALE by Ashleigh Ball. My framed-picture of the  crystalized versions of the con-mascots sold for $50. At least it raised money for charity, that's the main thing. I think over all, the charity auction raised of $1000. Respectable, right?

So, I didn't do as well as I had hoped for being a vendor. I had hoped to make about $500, but only came about half-way close. My main disappointment was the fact that I didn't even sell 10 of my prints. My biggest seller was apparently my sketch commissions. It seems that a lot of the other vendors didn't sell very much. This is a small convention after all, nothing like Trotcon or Bronycon, I presume. Plus, for me, it was a learning experience. Though I fell short of some of my expectations, I find myself maintaining a positive attitude about this experience. At least I still have plenty of prints to sell for next time ( I will make sure there is a next time), I don't have to worry about adding any of this for tax season, ect.  So yeah, I don't have a lot to regret from this. I'm proud of myself for finally getting out there, making my existence known, I was able to get the attention of a couple people that gave me business cards soon after. As far as I'm concerned, this experience was worth the time and effort I spent for it. I look forward to my next table.

After the Crystal Fair ended, I went home and watched Equestria Girls: Friendship Games on my DVR. WARNING: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS It wasn't bad. In my own opinion, it was about as good as Rainbow Rocks. Crystal Prep Academy seemed to have some *ahem colorful characters, though it seemed that some of them didn't get as much screen-time as others. I expected Crystal-Prep-Twilight to learn a lesson about realizing when you have the wrong kind of friends, but it was nice to see the CP Students had some humanity in them when they saved some of the other students. It was interesting to see Sunset Shimmer and CP Twilgiht play role-reversal at the climax. I don't really understand why Twilight became the raging-she-demon when she didn't really have any evil-intent, unlike Sunset did. But maybe it was the influence of Principle Cinch and the Crystal Prep students that made it so, it was clear that they had some darkness inside them. I just have to say I LOVE Sunset Shimmer's new sun-goddess form! That and RD's pep-rally song! So overall, I say that Friendship Games was decent at least.I didn't expect Princess Twilight and Human-Twilight to meet so soon. So what happens next? I also just can't help but wonder if we're ever going to find out what happened (if anything) to the original Canterlot High Sunset Shimmer. Maybe we'll find out in the future.

Okay, I'm done!

I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and I've always loved it. My main interest in art would have to be cartoons. Some people may see cartoons as mere means of childish entertainment, but I believe that cartoons are as legitimate as any other art-form. They have the power to make us laugh, feel, and think, just like any other form of art. My love for cartoons has also contributed to my interest in furry art. Lately, I've been drawing fanart of my favorite videogames and other media, but I hope to make my own webcomic with my own characters and become like the artists I idolize. I also enjoy video-games including Sonic the Hedgehog and Kingdom Hearts. I'm currently in college, working towards getting a Bachelor's degree and hopefully will be able to land a career as a animator, cartoonist, or freelance artist. I still have a lot to learn even as an adult.
