Convention Season 2008 Planning~
n2-Anpan OMP!!
Hey everyone!

Just a reminder that the SALE is still going on strong~ Many thanks to those who purchased stuff! Our first shipment just went out this morning. I have another package or two ready to go tomorrow! We still have a lot of stuff left - just let me know if you have any questions or inquiries about stuff! I can always take more photos or answer questions.

In the meanwhile, I've been pretty busy with maintaining our book deadline for February of 2008. I definitely have my work cut out for me - Less than 2.5 months to finish 7 chapters... 12 strips each. =_=;; I just have to buckle down and work hard. I average about 3 strips with finished pencils a day... colors are another story... but I'm still working on my techniques and methods to speed things up.

Well, this brings me to the subject matter at hand - Convention Season 2008 planning.

Aside from Kawaii Kon 2008, which is a given - KS and I are considering our options to attend a couple mainland conventions next year to promote our business. (I also posted this to the nemu*nemu blog.) We have limited resources and funds - flying from Hawaii is extremely time consuming and expensive, so where ever we plan for, we need to hit the right audiences.

High on our lists are:
  • Alternative Press Expo (Nov '08)
  • Fanime (May '08)

We know there's tons all over the US and Canada - any suggestions, advice, thoughts?

Much thanks for the suggestions! KS and I have been considering the bigger cons like AX and SDCC since this past year - we totally didn't have enough time to scope out the entire joint! It'd be a great opportunity to try and promote our stuff - we just worry about being lost in the crowds. (and having enough inventory to last for 4 days~ XD;)

I, too, have not been to Fanime - but over the years I've heard good feedback from attendees in the artist alley. Not sure how that might translate over to the dealer's room though? From what I hear, they're about the size of AX maybe 5 years ago? Seemingly more manageable?

Ahhh~~ if only money and time wasn't so much of an issue! XD; Much thanks for the suggestions! :D
