Could that be the name of a convention in the title of this entry?
Why YES IT IS! :-D
That's right, folks! I'm going to be stepping back behind the artist alley table for J-Fest! It's a one day anime and Japanese culture convention taking place March 8 (that's this Saturday) at the Nikkei National Museum and Japanese Cultural Centre in Burnaby, British Columbia from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Admission is $15 per person and there's plenty of awesome stuff to go around. Not only do we have your artist alley and vendors but there's panels, gaming rooms, viewing rooms, the maid cafe, the cosplay contest and even a few traditional Japanese musical and dance performances that look super cool!
For more information, check out the Facebook event page here.
Like I said, I'll be in the artist alley selling my mini comics, buttons, prints, bookmarks, original sketch cards and greeting cards (and yes, my recent pieces "Bloodwork" and "Shibuya Sweethearts" will be in the mix). So come on down and check it out! If you see me, don't be afraid to give me a shout or a wave and flip through my portfolio...despite my potentially vampiric appearance.
It's been quite a long time since I last did a convention (that would be Word on the Street all the way back in 2011...damn, that was ages ago) but I'm super pumped for this and can't wait for Saturday!
Hope to see you there. :-D
