Count – I – Con Day 2

I’ve been doing shows since about 2004, and this one… yeah, we’re just going to chalk this one up to ‘a learning experience‘. Total loss..  Lots of hype, but that’s all it was.

So artists if you’re approached to do this show, just beware, it’s not a good show, especially if they want you to pay for your booth.

On to new and better things – Sketchbooks will start going out this week as I get sketches done. Plus I have a few paintings I’d like to get done before I dig in on Halloween work for The Haunted All Night Flea Market : Freddie, Jason & Regan MacNeil (exorcist), also have some cute Halloween type art to do.

Lots to do!

Next show:
Chi-Pop-Con Oct 7th & 8th – in Carol Stream
Wheaton Haunted Flea Market – Oct 22nd.

Here’s a little story video I took for my instagram of my friends Kurt Dinse and Rob Hogan.

Count – I – Con Day 1…

It’s been a really long time since I’ve done a show that was this bad.  From what I’ve been told last year it was a really good show, that’s why I decided to do it.  Even if Sunday turns out to be a good day, it’s highly unlikely I’ll be returning next year.  It’s a long drive, (1.5hrs one way) and a lot of work to not make any money.  I talked to friends of mine also working this show and they’ve said pretty much the same thing.  No one’s really buying.

I’m not sure what the issue is, maybe they didn’t advertise enough or maybe sales are so bad because it’s following on the heels of Wizard World?

All I know is I need Sunday to be an awesome sales day.

I really need a new phone, one that takes better pictures.  I’m so tired of the pictures I take with my phone being out of focus.

While I was having no sales, I worked on one of the Pre-Order Sketchbook sketches.

Even this one looks blurry. =(
