What a lovely convention! I was honestly surprised how nice it was. I mean, I didn't really do anything except for work in the Dealer's Den and then go to Closing Ceremonies. Oops! But despite that, I had a wonderful time. This con was a breath of fresh air for me after only having gone to FWA for the past few years. FWA is so huge and seems to be mainly a "party con", whereas Fangcon reminded me of the first Megaplex I went to years ago: small and everyone was willing to talk to everyone. It really felt like being among a bunch of friends. I don't know if that is just a side effect of being a smaller con, or if it had to do with the different kind of people who attended this one. The crowd was a lot older than the crowd at FWA usually is; I think I only saw maybe three underage badges the entire con! Everyone was also so incredibly polite! Most people I meet at furcons are polite, but the people at this con were some of the most polite I had met at any con.
Now, unfortunately I didn't take a single picture at the convention. Boo.... But I did get to go to the Birmingham Zoo the day after the convention and took a ton of pictures there! A big thanks to the zoo and to Fangcon for the free tickets!
Some of my Favorite Badges from the Con
I have to thank everyone who commissioned me both at the con and for take-home work! You all are amazing people and so creative with your concepts and character designs. I'm going to be busy for awhile thanks to you all! Everyone who got a take-home commission has been contacted, so if you still haven't heard from me, email me ASAP!
Like I said, I am going to be busy for awhile with the take-home commissions! I also have an art show coming up that I need to do some paintings for! I've never done an actual art show before, nor have I sold my paintings, so I am super excited-nervous! It's going to be a busy next month for me! If you're in the Rome, GA area on November 11, come check out my art (and maybe buy something) at the Artist Expo!
