Yay! WonderCon!

So my second year at attending WonderCon came and went and I had a great time. Unfortunately, I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked because I was sucked into buying mode. I spent a GOOD (not good meaning good, but good meaning bad lol) amount of moola on artist goodies, but definitely well worth it.
 Look at the Uglydoll! I feel sorry for the guy inside lol
 Hey Giants/X-Men fans! Check it out (Unfortunately, this was not mine =( )

 I've wanted this ever since it came out. I love Chris Sanders
 My first Tokidoki collectible. Yeah, I'm a late bloomer.

 My first custom Foomi! What to do, what to do! That will definitely be a future blog...

And this time, I actually got to experience the "behind the table" action. My friend, Cristian, (the illustrator behind Reluctant Zero) had a space in the small press area and I got to hang out and catch up. It was definitely a thrilling experience for me seeing and meeting the people that came to the table. It left an impressionable mark on me so much so, that I have been debating all day if I should turn in an interest form for APE. And if a little 10 year old girl can have a table (if you went to WonderCon, you would know what I'm talking about) so can I, dammit!

And lastly, I just want to say congratulations and thank you to an artist friend of mine, Nidhi Chanani! (Check out her awesome work, here) She was recently interviewed for a segment on CNN. About a year ago, she FB messaged me out of the blue with inspiring advice which has helped me work on believing in my art. I try to hold on to that feeling everyday. She has had a huge influence on me and I thank her from the bottom of my heart. <3
