Fanime 2011 ~end~

At my table ready to go.
Big thank you to everyone who stopped by and said hello. It was a whirlwind weekend of little sleep, no breakfast, and having a crazy amount of fun talking with people who love art and anime.

There were a lot of great costumes that passed by my table. Took as many Avatar cosplay pics as I could!

I meet and talked with the great Gorgonist while I was there. A super sweet person who was kind to talk to me about her latest children's book and give great advice. Check out her beautiful illustrations on her blog.

Talked with a friend from the past, Megamoth, an artist AND an instructor in the ways of comics, manga, and anime!

Even got to chat with awesome con goers that remembered me from past cons. One was sporting the King from my Queen and King button set!

My favorite moment came from a girl who spotted a warning sign placed within my portfolio. It indicated that the next pictures contained nudity. She liked it so much she purchased it!

Drew on a few people. Woohoo! 
 Such as trollface on a Vampire Hunter D cosplayer's hand.

Bob and Tsukasa
Want to do a shout out to Bob and Tsukasa who are a part of Cafe Verfuhren. These two were the kindest people I talked with during my time at Fanime. I wanted to take the time to SPAM their kindness and their Japanese “Butler” and “Dansou” cafe that pampers their guest to treats and cuteness.

A big hug to my table neighbors, who were kind to give me food and provided laughter when we had to sit for hours on end. Thank you Emily and Danny! Learned a lot this year and I look forward to attending more conventions in the future.

  1. The Vampire Hunter D drawing looks great, I remember watching the movie a few years ago together with Blood the last vampire, I like them a lot :)

  2. Thank you Ana! Love old school anime - they had a way in which they told stories that feel a bit different then today.

  3. It was lovely chatting with you Melissa, we hope you can make it to one of our events in the near future.

    We have a facebook page, it's fairly new, but we're slowly adding more content to it. Please "like" us to find out what we'll be up to next!

    Thank you once again!

  4. Damn! I need to go to fanime so I can run into you. I had a table at AX again this year, but I want to try fanime. Looks like fun!

  5. You do! That would be wonderful if you were to attend, I plan on going to next one if I manage to get a table. Haha, I've been wanting to try AX. We should try to be table neighbors!
