SMASH! 2013 :)

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 19, 2013, 6:35 AM


hello! :) i'm a bit late, but thank you so much to everyone who came by our stall at SMASH! this year!! 

it was me and :icondonkatsuramen:'s first time selling! we were CMYK and we were really scared, but it turned out really well thanks to all the lovely people who stopped by. :') THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

i was an absolute dork and i forgot to bring EVERYTHING this year. i was so stressed and panicked about drawing and getting stuff ready for the stall that i forgot about bringing anything else. I FORGOT TO BRING A CAMERAAAA!! and i really wanted to get morita-san's autograph but I FORGOT TO BRING MY BOOK FOR HIM TO SIGN!! :iconlazypoolplz: so yeah, i was an epic fail. (i stole these photos from DonKatsuRamen.)


somehow we sold stuff!! i really didn't think people would buy my Digimon prints because it's so old school, but they did. i had two different Digimon prints, but they both sold so i was incredibly happy! :icontearplz: and i had some really enthusiastic conversations with fellow Digimon/taiora fans. :')

and both my bags sold! hooray! :D i had a lot of fun making them, so i'm glad there were people who liked them. please take good care of them! :')

i got a lot of commissions, so i was pretty much drawing the whole day. i was asked to draw a lot of (shippy) Persona 4 for some reason. :P i've never played it but now i can easily draw the main character off by heart, haha.

i wanted to look around and talk to people though! but i draw much slower than i thought, so i didn't really end up leaving the table or the vendor hall all day. OTL 

but :iconkamifish: visited at the beginning of the day and bought stuff and it totally made my day!! cause she's kinda like my hero so yeahhhh haha. 
it was also really great that my friends :iconna-ku: :iconhforhiraeth: :iconijustdontgetit: :iconyaya-chan-x3: came by, even if it was just a short while. thank you guys, i really needed that moral support!! :')

i wanted to meet some other artists, but i didn't end up talking to anyone much, i must've looked really anti-social, sorry!! :iconrazycryplz:
we were next to lalage|Jia-Ling Pan and their art was so incredible!! i chatted a bit to hwei in the morning and she was really nice. :) 
didn't get a chance to talk to :iconpoporetto:, he was so busy! it was also nice of :iconry-spirit: to come say hi to us afterwards, even though i was really really awkward, sorry. OTL

in the end, WE SOMEHOW DID IT!! like, we totally broke even and covered our costs and made some profit like no waaaaaayyyy:iconpapcryplz: 
it has been an incredibly stressful and panicked couple of months in the lead-up but we made it!! it was definitely worth it in the end and i learnt a lot! thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way, and thank you to everyone who visited us! :D THANK YOU!!

maybe we'll be back someday, who knows? :)  but for now, this is CMYK signing out! XD

hi popo! that's okay, you guys looked really busy all day! i was going to visit earlier but you guys already had a bit of a crowd. :)
i was mostly stuck behind the table so i also didn't get to walk around at all, so i only just managed to run over and get a badge during the last 10 minutes or so. OTL
hope your smash was a good one though! :D

I visited your table during SMASHcon and took a card to remind myself to say hi to you here!

HI! Great job during Smash!
