08 Sep A Week in Toronto
I’m back from my week in Toronto for Fan Expo Canada 2015. What a week!
Overall Fan Expo Canada was a lot of fun, and I plan on signing up again. The parts I enjoyed the most was catching up with old friends, making new ones, and the conversations that I got to have friend friends and fans alike.
This was my first time at Fan Expo, and it was by far the biggest one that I’ve tabled at. Overall, things weren’t as stressful as I thought they’d be, and I actually felt pretty relaxed while I was there, much more so than the commute. After this weekend, I feel pretty good moving forward and applying to other large cons.
I got a good share of commissions, a couple of them were pretty wacky, but I had fun. Seemed like the theme for Fan Expo was pandas and girls, but I enjoyed making each and every one of them. I mean, I get to draw a Hellboy and a Furiosa panda, how cool is that?
I also got to meet a lot of talented artists and see some of their work. Sorry if I missed anyone, there’s just so much talent out there!
