Wow it's been a year since I last updated this blog. I even attended Otakuthon last year but never blogged about it. :/ And now, another time at Anime North has come and gone! The weekend passed by so fast... I brought my 3DS and a tablet to work on some writing, but I hardly had the chance to touch any of it!

I was telling people that I've been tabling for 8 years now, but looking back at my 2015 con report, apparently this was my 9th! One more and I'll be ten years in!
(and then I can retire?) o_0 As usual, con prep was hectic and crazy and I didn't make nearly enough merch, but still had a good time.

Short con report will be short! I just got back after a shotgun trip to Toronto for Hallyu North. The con is new so it was small and not very well-organised, but I liked how chill it was. I left early both days because food and sleep were calling me. Toronto transit, however, was seriously out to get me that weekend. The construction and detours were really annoying, but I made it in one piece.

Another year gone by! I can't believe this was my 8th year tabling in the artist alley. I think this was probably the toughest and most intense con prep I've ever done. When I heard that I got a table, I wasn't able to work on anything because I was too busy with school. My program is a one year intensive, so the workload for the winter semester was ridiculous and I worked a good 2 months nearly 7 days out of 7 in the conservation lab. I had two plush commissions pending that I was only able to finish when I went back home to Montreal for a 2 week break at the end of April. I then had Ottawa ComicCon at the end of that "break", and had less than 10 days to prep for Anime North. During the last week, I pulled 60hours while juggling school. o__0 I was seriously sleep deprived, but I had a great time!

I can't believe how fast 2014 flew by. It's been quite the eventful year! The last time I blogged was for my Otakuthon con report... since then, I moved to a different city for school and I've been studying full-time in an art conservation program.

Otakuthon has come and passed. I must admit, this was probably my best experience at this convention thus far. In the past, I've always been part of their artist alley and I noticed that compared to other cons, the sales and overall experience wasn't all that great. I've also never done much at a con in general, aside from sit at a table for the whole weekend. This year was very different because my buddy Alice came down and we did all the things. Hosted a workshop, got an autograph, watched a screening, shopped in the dealer's/AA, cosplayed, hung out with friends! I also had a few commission deliveries.

Another year gone by! This year felt weirdly different because they changed the layout of the TCC. I think we were actually better placed than the Dealer's Room; people seemed quite confused on where to go.
