Big thanks to all who stopped by at Anime-Zing!
You guys made this con a lot of fun despite the poor turnout. I got to meet up with some artist/dealer friends, as well as many friends I met at Spark. You kids are all super cool.
Unfortunately, Anime Zing really hurt everyone I talked to in the dealers room and artist alley. Many were told falsified numbers and that is very unprofessional. The floor staff & con suite, however, was amazing and helpful.
I could rant more about this con, but I hate being so negative. To put it short, I won't be supporting any cons under the same conchair/circuit. At least not until some major changes get made and positive feedback is claimed.
Aside from that, I am looking forward to seeing so many of the same artists and dealers, and Iowa friends at Anime Iowa coming up at the end of July. I miss you all already.
In other worlds, I received a proof for a compilation book I'm working on and man am I excited. I will try and get an order for Anime Iowa, but realistically It will be debuted at Wizard World Chicago.
I got a few tweaks before I print a solid run but I will keep you posted
