The last weekend of July had me heading off to ConBravo in Burlington with my selling partner Kayla and my Boyfriend Paul. We were actually expecting a longer ride to the convention area, but were pleasantly surprised when we only had half the drive time. Here is a picture of our booth set up and yes that is Kayla behind all that stuff.
So on to some awesome art news! I've got two new paintings to show, well three, but I'll post up the other one soon enough. DeadPool and Mario!
I heart DeadPool. He looks like he's just so happy and care free to do whatever he wants. He so cute I can't stand it. :P He's one of the tiny ones sitting at 2 inches by 2.75 inches and I sold them to quite a few people who wanted him as magnets. I hope he brings joy to their refrigerators.
Also another popular painting at the con was Mario himself. A Mini painting, Mario stands at 2 inches by 2.75 inches. And by popular demand was a magnet and a button! I was able to fashion a makeshift button for my boyfriend with superglue and one of Kayla's button backs. I don't think I would do this in the future as an option to customers due to the amount of time it takes for the glue to dry. However I'm looking into a way to make it work.
ConBravo is a relatively small convention, and it was only on its second year, I probably will be going to the convention next year, I found it to be a really good place to meet new artists and get some advice from the artists that have a lot more experience.
My next big Convention is in Ottawa at Naru2u in November. Hope to see some of you there!
