I really like the ToyCon staff, they are really nice, and most of the vendors are nice too. I enjoy doing shows, getting out talking with people, discussing art, pop culture, movies, and music.
Half way into working on this Chewbacca piece I began to get frustrated that I didn’t have the proper browns, and was wishing I had painted it instead. I will probably redo it at some point. I stayed up way too late on Friday working on it, then finished it about 5pm on Saturday. I scanned it and stuck it in my prints layout. Then I put together a special prints package for the show on Sunday. By the time I had everything done it was about 6 – then I ran to the printer.
About 1230a as I was cutting down the 5×7 prints for that special prints package, that’s when I realized I was missing two of the prints for it. I stopped by the printer after the show to get them printed up, I will be cutting & assembling them today and listing them in [ my bigcartel shop ].
I didn’t get done with show prep till 230a Sunday, got up at about 5 and left about 630a and stopped to pick up breakfast with some much needed coffee, I got to the Bridgeview Community Ctr with 15 mins to unload, park the car and set up.
After the show, on the drive home is when the tired hit me. When I got home, the husband helped me unpack my car, I got my flash drive & paper then drove to the printer and got my missing prints done. He (long time employee there) apologized, by this time I wasn’t mad, he let me know that my regular guy had found a new job and let me know who was on the print staff now. *sigh* looks I have new people to break in. =)
So much to do today, back to getting commissions done and out to clients.
