[quick note - seems that the Megatokyo t-shirts are starting to show up in Waldenbooks stores :) - piro]
Geh. Last year was that horrible snow storm that socked in the East Coast and Seraphim and I drove thru that mess coming home from Katsucon... for once in my life, i hope it DOESNT snow over the next few days. ^^;;
Ok, as usual before I travel, a quick and frantic rant. :) I've managed to meet my deadline (yay! Book 1 stuff is almost done! Just a few things to do when I get back next week :) so that rather annoying Dirge-esque monkey is off my back. ^^;; God, I hate monkeys. Monkeys suck. But at least I think I have my life back. Just in time to drive to Virginia to go to Katsucon. I ... sorta feel (and sound like) Meemers today. Remind me to start covering all the mirrors in this place.
Ok, Katsucon. First con of this year's con season for Seraphim and I, and as always, we'll do our best to sign, do drawings (as best I can, anyways) and whatnot while there. There's a lot going on at Katsu this year (see schedule below) but when Seraphim and I aren't at events, we'll be at the Wizzywig booth hiding behind cute fluffy stuffed things. It looks like we won't be at the booth on Friday, but there is an autograph session at 7pm Friday, so we can try to take care of you there as well. We'll be at the booth on Saturday from10am to 12noon and from 5pm to 6pm. Sunday, we'll be there from 10am to 3pm. As always, we'll try to take care of everyone. Thank in advance for your support :)
Now, the con schedule specifics are as follows:
- Friday -
Opening Ceremonies - 5pm
MegaTokyo panel - 6pm
Autograph session - 7pm
- Saturday -
Web Comics - 12pm - 2pm
Iron Artist - 2:15pm - 4:30pm
MegaTokyo overflow - 11pm
- Sunday -
Closing Ceremonies - 3pm
Be sure to come to the Megatokyo panel on Friday if you can. We're gonna try showing some photos from some of the stuff we did last year. Should be fun.
Also, the webcomics panel will have a lot of webcomic people there, including the Mac Hall guys, Vaz from Under Power", Hot Soup from Winter and Lethal Doses fame, Hawk from Applegeeks... more too (I'll update this list when I get there tomorrow :P) For the most part, I think most of these guys are brining stuff to sell (for example, Vaz is gonna have some very nice pieces in the art show, and the Applegeeks guys are brining some shirts ^_^) - be sure to support your fave webcomic artists ^_^
As I've mentioned before, I REALLY got tripped up right from the get-go this year. A lot of things came down far faster than I anticipated them to, and it's been hell on my nerves and my sleep schedule, but the good news is *I got thru it* ^_^ and it's done. The plus side of this is that rather than working on book 1 for the two weeks after Katsucon,it's done, which means I can focus on chapter 5. :) If all goes well, Chapter five will start Friday of next week (unless I need one more comic to finish off the GTC arc). Hope you guys haven't been too disappointed with MT recently - been doin my best.
A few things I keep completely forgetting about. First, a note from Dom:
“Sorry about being late on this whole thing, but American Cosplay Paradise has started its MegaTokyo cosplay contest! We're going to offer an original sketch and a couple of posters as prizes, so go here for rules and more information! The deadline is February 28, so get crackin'! Good luck"
Dom says they will probably move the deadline because it's taken so long to get announcements out. Gah, no idea when I can get a sketch done for it... Oh well, I'll deal with that next week. ^^;;
Another thing I promised that I'd link well over a month ago is 9th Elsewhere - a very cute and well done webcomic that I think I've linked before ^_^ Give it a read, well worth the visit, and tell the girls I sent you.
