With May just beginning I thought I would update everyone on the many things that have been happening as of late on my adventures around the convention scene in England. I have also been booked for a few more conventions in the coming months and wanted to let you all know about them too.

So without further delay lets begin!

HUDDERSFIELD MANGA CON 2014 - For my second convention ever it was slightly more successful then my first, didn't sell as much as I hoped for but it was great meeting new people and getting some advice on how to expand upon my stuff to sell too. Plus side its always fun to feel the awkward pain for the people on the stage during the different events during the day. Man if the announcers are nervous, then the guest will feel even more awkward being up there. If uncomfortable could be summed up in an outfit, they'd all be matching!

SCI-FI SCARBOROUGH 2014 - Single best weekend I've had in a long time, in terms of being a stall holder at a convention, I've never had such a good time before this one and was so glad I found out about it and took part! For there first convention it was amazing, so many awesome stall holders, guests and attendees which made a brilliant time.

I did very well in terms of getting my work out there and even got asked for several commissions, mixed with doing cosplay photography for some awesome cosplayer's  I met during the weekend. I even gave Colin Baker (the 6th Doctor) a illustration as a gift for just being awesome on his panel.

I also met an amazing woman called Sarah from 'Snugglepup Crafts' who wishes to make some of my work into various pieces of merchandise to see at conventions on both my stall and hers in future events. I of course have gladly agreed to so will be having badges, mugs and t-shirts made from new pieces of work I am doing for her.
