My word, it's been a while since I've written up one of these! After chapters of motorcycle accidents, hibernation, and playing KanColle, I finally muster up the time and urge to write up another one of these deviantART journal entries--and, really, all this is an update for KyokoPro Studios' plans for the new year.
All I can say for sure is that the next three conventions that we'll be attending this year will be: Katsucon in National Harbor, Maryland; Anime Boston in (you guessed it!) Boston, Massachusetts; and Anime Central in Rosemont, Illinois--in that order. For all of the above, we'll only be participating in the conventions' respective Art Shows, where we will be displaying and selling four framed, 20-in.-by-30-in. pieces for silent--and, potentially, live--auction. It's an experiment based off of our past records of doing extraordinarily well in Art Shows for cons such as Anime North's in Toronto, Canada and Otakon's in Baltimore, Maryland, as well as our only option considering that we didn't manage to make it into any of these con's Artists' Alleys through sign-up.
So, if 2013 was the year of the Artists' Alleys for us, then it looks like we can count on 2014 being the year of the Art Shows instead. I'll still be attending all of these conventions myself, but don't expect to see me behind a booth too often this time; you'll be much more likely to see me behind a camera. (This is also going to be the year that my CMVs finally get to truly shine! I can feel it in my bones, doods~!
