Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)






































My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.

Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.

MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself. But I'm glad I finally finished this so I can go back to drawing other things / playing games without feeling like I should be doing something elseOHYEAHSALESTAXES.

amg this time i visited you at AX! :D
before i arrived at your table, i kept telling myself "don't waste too much money until you go to John Su's table" x"D
so i luckily restrained myself until i got there

lol i probably looked really suspicious and way too nervous and excited XD
i was so happy and glad i met you this year 8D 
too bad by the time i arrived at your table a lot of the drawings i wanted to buy sold out //well to be expected by how awesome your art is~

i srsly love reading all your conventions 'goes to' xD they're always so fun to read
maybe next time I'll bring some food for you too lol like candy or chips? XD
