Convention is Over and I am Sad

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 9:44 PM
Because I am straightforward and to the point.

But yeah, Kawaii kon this year was super good! Sold lots of pins, hung out with friends, and just... generally had a great time! I bought a handful of stickers and pins for myself, too! Also a pad of derpy sea creature post-its.

I dunno, Kawaii kon means a lot to me 'cause it's pretty much the only time I get to show off my artwork IRL and it's just generally great to see everyone show their interest in something most people usually keep quiet about. Although I wouldn't change my major from bio to art, every time I have a table at artist's alley, the less I wanna do science-y things and more I just wanna draw and make people happy. Even when people weren't buying my pins and prints, my artwork at least made them laugh or smile. And that felt great!

I dunno, I just thought I'd jot down some thoughts since today's free premium day and I can use journal skins for a little bit.

Ooh, also, here's a little picture of me at my table with my Raccalope hoodie. It was tiny, but, it got the job done. Sometimes less is more at conventions, especially if you're just starting out. The Paopu Fruit were made by my friend and she also had Pokeballs, but she ran out of them on the first day.

So, yeah! I... would advertise my pin store again, but I actually sold all my pin materials and I gotta order more. But I will let all of you know when I have the things again. Woop woop.

Now if you excuse me, I have three days of Game Grumps to catch up on and a Calculus exam to study for!

Hey people of the internets! I'm pickles-4-nickles, but you can just call me Pickles. I'm shy, Chinese, and I love cartoons and video games. As you've probably noticed already, I'm working on a webcomic, but sometimes I draw some fanart here and there. Anyway, have a look around and thanks for stopping by!

By the way, I'm also a Biology major with lots of work to do! So, if there's a dry spell of art, which is... pretty much all the time, actually... Do not fret! It's just me studying religiously.

I read all the comments you guys leave me! If I don't answer, I'm really bad at socializing and I just don't know what to say. But believe me when I say I appreciate all your feedback! C:

Also! I've been seeing lots of people reposting my work without my permission! If you want to use my stuff please ask me first! Thank you!

YouTube: I occasionally post LPs and stuff there!
Tumblr: I'm more active on Tumblr, actually. I post lots of doodles and fanart!

Sorry for all the favorites, recognized your Octodad piece from when I ran into it on tumblr and then went through your gallery only to fall in love with your art style :,D Really love how cute and expressive everyone you draw seems to look, no matter if it's fan art or original art.

Keep up the awesome work gal.~ Looking forward to more :>

I had planned on drawing you something for your birthday (since you are one of my favorite people on dA) but I got really distracted today with friends so I'll probably have it done by the end of the weekend. I hope you have a good birthday!!
