Break Time!

All time for a blog break! I've been working during any free time I have to make inventory for my artist alley table at Otakon. If you're in Baltimore or going to Otakon hop on by! Since I was taken off the waiting list two weeks before the venue now I must furiously work work work and I have no idea where my table is >_> or when they will give me that information! Above is one of my little images for the cards I will be selling. Link from the beloved Zelda series is one of my favorites! I think this is perfect for him and me. =D

I've made about 10 or more designs that showcase my love for anime, games, kawaii and quirky ideas in general. I opt to make cards because to me you can do more with a card... if you like it you can frame, if you want to you can send it someone, you can hang it anywhere and it comes with an envelope. Multifunctional art =D! I won't be putting these up in my shop until after the convention.

I've also been making tiny felt pins and right now I have 24 completed and 9 cut out and ready to be stuffed and sown together. I'm very nervous as I don't think I will have enough inventory since it's for 2.5 days... there's always the chance that they won't sell but I rather be safe then sorry =/.

One drawback with having a table is that you miss roaming around looking at cosplayers, panels and other entertainment. I'm grateful to my significant other for staying with me at the table even though I told him he can visit other things if he wants to. Some of the panels I'm interested in going to is the ones about cosplays like "how to make/photograph/make up" etc and the crafting ones like "how to make kawaii" etc. I think those would be very interesting! I also want to see some of the special screenings of anime like the hyped up Evangelion 1.0 I think that's what it's called.

Anyways going back to work work work!

Until next time... hasta manana!

Remember that you too, like the heroes, need a break!
