So the last couple conventions were terribly slow for me, compared to previous ones, and proved to be more costly than profitable in the long run. It also seemed that interest in my prints has waned slightly, perhaps because many of the attendees who had a desire for them had already bought them previously. Therefore, I’ve decided that it might be time to take a bit of a hiatus from conventions. This would give me time to update and refresh my inventory.
And for everyone who gave donations to see certain pokemon drawn, don’t worry, I still have those on hand, and I still intend to paint them. I will continue to work my way through the Starter pokemon for the eventual artbook, which you can still help support and add your favorite pokemon to it through my Patreon.
For those people who are still interested in getting copies of my work, I’m looking into setting up something online for people to purchase prints. That means they’ll be available year-round, not just at select conventions. I’m also planning on getting a button-maker with what I’ve been able to save up, so I’ll have more than just paper prints available.
If anyone has any suggestions for their favorite online print and merchandise services, I would appreciate it. Also, feel free to shout out names of other conventions that you know of and enjoy. I’ll take it into consideration for when I hop back into the convention circuit. I may still occasionally drop into a convention or two, but overall, I’ll be taking a break from them.
I’ll post updates as I go!
