This year Anthrocon was amazing for me. Many people were complaining about technical problems on this edition of Anthrocon, it is understandable that the staff should help to make this to be perfect, but in the end is us who make the con great.
I had a blast, it was even more awesome (for me) this time than the last year or even two years ago, but this is a subjective opinion. I met many old friends who I didn't expect to see there, I also made new friends, met new incredible people, I used my fursuit SO much!! You could saw me on saturday in fursuit almost all the day, from morning to afternoon and also at the rave.
I'll write a complete journal about all my Anthrocon experience, soon. I know that probably you are thinking it's too late to talk about Anthrocon when it happened 3 weekends ago, well... that is also part of my experience, that it didn't get over after Anthrocon, I continued a big adventure after it, all around United States and Canada <3
But about this picture... probably you know that this year's theme was Baseball at Anthrocon, or "take me out to the ballgame", and at the con we could see many furs with their baseball uniforms, baseball bats, caps...
Personally I don't understand very well baseball, I just know the basic rules and that's for Wii Sports, haha. But for some reason I like that people get involved to a fanbase of any sport: baseball, soccer, football, basketball... (and specially I love mascots and costumes).
Talking with a friend about what could I draw for Anthrocon, with baseball related, he told me about an experience between a family who are fan of a soccer team, and how they live that fanaticism, so I thought it could be a great idea to picture a family living the sport.
I really love the result. It is completely done with color pencils (primsacolors).
It was published in the Anthrocon's conbook, and the original was auctioned at the Anthrocon's art show. Thank you very much to the person who purchased it <3
The baseball team on the picture are not the Chicago Cubs as many thought, they are Los Charros de Jalisco. (The baseball team from my town)
