Well folks, Supanova 2014 on the Gold Coast has come and gone. Sales wise, I didn't do very well, there were a lot of window shoppers just like last year. But also I didn't have anything new out, thanks to a couple of co-workers going out on holidays during the month of March and I had to cover them. Four weeks of work, mainly 3am shifts & late night shifts as well, and having only 3 days off during those four weeks? That's casual work for you. :/ I also did notice that more than half the attendance were from Brisbane anyway, so unless you have something new out it's kinda pointless. Probably next year, I'll skip the Gold Coast event and do the Melbourne one instead.
But I still had a good time hanging with fellow artists, going out for dinner and drinks with the crew, having a spot right next to the Phatsville Guys, meeting other artists and other contacts. I got to meet the people that ran the Brisbane Pop Culture booth and they are organising an Alternative Comic expo in late June, so I'll be applying for a spot for that event. I got to bring the Xenomorph Spitter piece to the event and inked it up, and got to sell it. That did lift some spirits up.
So now it's back to reality returning back to work, and cleaning up my yard...
I'll just be continuing on with Zenyaku part 2. As I said before, I'm going to work on the pages traditionally as a whole, then work on the digital parts all at once and upload them as a whole. Plus do some stuff for the next Phatsville and Groovy Gravy which will be released in November. Do some more fanart to show off. I'm also in talks with Timothy Gill www.miles-prowerx.deviantart.com to do some collaborations, I've asked him to do some colouring for the ever-so-wrong Sonic Dirties strips, I'll be doing a couple more of them, enough for a 8 paged freebie, hopefully in time for either Oz-comic-con (Brisbane) in September or Supanova in November.
Yeah, I'm going to be busy for the rest of the year...
