Behold, flash book v2.0! Now with water color effects and curvy page turning! (flashbook .fla here: [link])
Press SHIFT to toggle the squiggles on and off.

Previous reports: 2010, 2009, 2008

Alright, so two weeks after the event, I've finally gotten the report finished!

Most of what happened (and some of what didn't) is documented inside, but here are some extra notes:

- There were actually two (or more??) Hatsune Miku cars, none of which attempted to crush me and none of which had pigtails. But, with the power of art, both can be done!
- Sorry =Raburabbit, I totally forgot to come back for you guys. =_=; Thanks for the button, though! It is now on my backpack, making it MANLIER.
- I actually encountered the R2-cup holder after lunch, but I figured "hey, I am already doing everything wrong, so..."
- Food trucks are exciting, but next time I will try to not buy tiny tiny tacos.
- there were quite a number of panels this year that were not what I expected them to be, such as industry events that were focused on western animation, or a Miku conference that was more on history and polls than on...I don't remember what I was expecting from that one, actually.

The Miku concert was pretty cool! The reason I would not attend another, however, is not because of the dancing guy (he was not actually a sight-blocker), but because after an hour of watching it, I felt I had an adequate experience. It did not disappoint, but I am satisfied now, and would not regret missing the next (unless technology advances such that she can start attacking the crowd directly).

The deviants I met at AX!
and sorry, I think there may have been another 2 or 3 in there, but I didn't get your names!

Here's a copy of one of the things I drew in a guest book! [link]

Well, that's it for this year. I'll be attending the next, and maybe this time I'll table? I think everyone we met in Artist Alley told me to do it - some more emphatically than others.

I saw the same balloon-helmet guy when I went there. I got bummed out the next week because that's when i figured out that they had her concert...

i went to AX for my first time this year!! i also went to the miku conferance. it was boring!! and the dude presenting there crossplayed so well that everyone there thought he was a chick until he said something. they were laughing at him(the poor guy) i wanted to get mikunopolis tickets in the stand-in line but didn't realize that we had to be there 4 hours before the concert. i didn't hear about the suspicious package though.:shrug:
JohnSu Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, okay, good. I'm glad I didn't sit through the whole conference, then.
ilikedrawingstuffs Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011
That staff member looks strangely familiar,or it could just be me.

And who would turn off the squiggles?The squiggles made this Flash that more fun.I love your sense of humor.
lilythescorpio Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2011
LOL XD I had the same concert experience : )
Please come over behind my table next year to take a pic with me, and take some freebies, plus the ones I owe you from this year. I will try to draw more and better in the meantime. I got an AX table to hold up my end of this bargain, so the rest is up to you.
JohnSu Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I should be tabling next year, so the likelihood of that will be much higher!
lilythescorpio Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2011

Hey, what row were you sitting in by any chance? Cause you might've been sitting behind my friends and I.
MagicianCelemis Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011   Digital Artist
@_@ AGGH!! So they did sell Miku tickets on-site!! I've heard rumors about it!! D8
Wait--was the guy who was selling them actually looked suspicious and had a van nearby?? Or was it official??

LOL I thought the suspicious package had tacos in it, since it could of been a scam made by the foodtrucks. 8DD
JohnSu Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the tickets were from the staff, inside the hall
MiharuZee Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Student Digital Artist

I went to the Miku concert too~~ Were you a part of a group that was chanting, "SIT DOOOWWWN~~!!" to a group of people blocking the view of others by standing? I was right in that area and I felt bad for them >.>
JohnSu Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, but I did remember a chain reaction of people standing up in order to see over the people standing up
