So Toracon was interesting. The people were great, and the atmosphere was more laid back than some other cons I’ve been to, but despite my littering advertisements everywhere, I’m not sure enough people knew I was there. I would, however, really like to thank the few people who bought my posters and talked with me a little about my work. You guys are awesome.
I’d also really like to thank Yuko and Ananth of Johnny Wander, especially Yuko who actually talked with me for a while on tips for new webcomic artists. Hopefully I will see you guys at more conventions in the future! (Also happy birthday Yuko!) If you guys happen to check out the site, let me know what you think! I hope I didn’t come off too nervous-like, as I’m a huge fan. (I don’t think I even formally introduced myself, I’m Tim by the way. Fail.)
I don’t think I’ll be doing posters again for a while, not until a few people actually know the comic better at least. I would like to be getting out there selling something, however, as I always share a table with Anii at conventions anyway. Let me know what kind of merch you’d like to see! I’m doing Otakon this summer for sure, but if all goes well, I’ll be able to get the time off for Connecticon as well. I’m crossing my fingers.
Anyway, I hope you guys like today’s comic! I spent all day Saturday and most of Sunday at Toracon drawing it, and I think it turned out really well. I know the whole thing looks a little more vivid than I usually do, and that’s because it’s a dream. “Why do the dream scenes get to be more colorfully drawn than real life scenes?” you might ask. Good question, you’ll have to wait a bit and see! Maybe one of these days the comic will actually be about something! Hmmm. By the way that cat is based off of my own critter, Magic. I don’t own a dragon or a dinosaur on which to base drawings on though. I know, right? Shame.
To any of my new readers, glad you could make it! And to my friends who always remember to check my updates, thank you guys.
That’s all for now.
