Plump Mondays No. 21- Supanova Edition





So on the weekend I manned a table at the local comic convention (Supanova) here in Brisbane, showing my folio, selling my book and some prints. Its was a fun couple of days meeting people and showing my work. I had a blast seeing how people reacted to my folio(my pug and my ewok were especially popular).

A big thank you to all the people who came over and enjoyed my art, a bigger thank you to the people who bought my book or bought a print. But the BIGGEST thank you goes to my friend Lach who let me share his table and if it wasn't for him, none of it would have happened!

Both days were very busy but when I wasn't talking to people I was able to do a few sketches seen here, but nothing like what Lach was able to do. Wow! I really hope he post his sketches from the day on his blog. Every time I turned around there was another massive drawing of something mind-blowing.

Overall, I am so glad that I did this. I feel like I have been living in a little bubble with my art for so long, only showing it to family, friends and co-workers and it was incredibly inspiring to see how people react to my work having never seen it before. I even made a little money which is always nice :). It looks like I'll be heading down the the Sydney Supanova as well!
