Home from FWA! And State of the BCS address

It seems the notes, emails, PMs, comments, and other things piled up, especially while I didn't have email... if you have a commission with me, note that I'm working both on a new cartoon called AMi: Thought Bubbles and a Greek Mythology artbook (70% voted for! WOOHOO!) and I'm utterly swamped with other commitments so they end up being squeezed into whatever free time I can manage.

I have a lot of stuff to do and scan... sales at FWA were ridiculously small, at least for me and what I usually bring in. I made about $200 via commissions and $200 in profit, and I spent around another $50 on stuff for myself while there (Last Unicorn comic, IDW MLP comics 1+2, The Confectionaries) If TJA wasn't footing the bill, I would have made no profit and they only had, like, 2 sales while there. Ouch.

I'll have to dip into my own funds in April and May for Anthrocon (plane tickets!) and Bronycon and pray I'm not too late to reserve a table at the latter, since they want $125 and I only have until March 31st to reserve for one.

I never got enough people getting my cheap $25 FULL COLOR badge slots to afford it this month. There's still 3 left, hint hint.

So I'll be busy busy busy, but what else is new?

It was nice seeing ya at the con. :3 I actually really wanted to buy that Midna and Twilight mouse pad, but didn't have the money. >< Oh well. Hope you have fun at anthrocon though. :D Also...they had mLP comics there? Awwwww...I didn't see any. ><

They were right across from my table in a large box, carried by LegionPress! I only spent $5 for an original #1, and $4 for a #2. Not bad.

Well, I'll be bringing my Midna mousepads to AC, like Keychains, they move pretty well. I will also likely be trying to snag a place to make me some custom T-shirts too but it totally depends on my Offbeatr!

The Offbeatr pays for the artbook BUT it also frees me up from trying to personally shoulder that cost only on the money I make through commissions plus my disability benefits from bipolar... aka that thing that fucks up my sleep schedule and consistently nice social interaction so I can't hold down a dayjob none too well, especially if it's way below my creativity level, it just stupifies me.

Huhu, after my project successes, they will determine the course of my year. I will probably be aiming to get enough funds for my own scooter and applying for local jobs again if it's shortlived. I wrote kind of an abstracted essay about success on Twitter but it boils down to: try to be honest and stick to your principles and be prepared to work for it constantly, it's never easy.

.....I'm not good at looking, it seems. XD I didn't even notice it.

I overlooked it several times too. Display does count for a lot, doesn't it? It does make it super hard to travel, though... bringing it up by both car AND plane was no fun.

Oh, and it's not mousepads, but it's up on the store for other products here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/buttercupsaiyan/works/...

I still have some left over, 1 or 2. You want to buy one later?

Probably next month at the soonest. Only have a few dollars in my bank account. I might be able to buy something as long as its under 30. But even then.....yeah. Unless I can get myself out there and get a job, things are likely to be QUITE lean.

Hmm, I know how that is! I have exactly $25.62 in my bank account and bringing my luggage home was $25 which will leave me with $0.62 after that clears. I wasn't kidding when I said money was tight!

Needless to say, I'm heading over to the bank today or tomorrow to remedy that pronto. Paypal taking 4-5 days to transfer is just too much!

You were a busy beaver during the con. Kudos to you! Maybe I should draw more pony work to get the kids salavating?
