Tiff and I are going to be out of town next week. In the interim, I'm going to try and bang out some more work, so I just wanted to let everybody know that I'm going to be more or less radio-silent for the next two weeks. See you on the flip!
Hey, hey! So it turns out that the table location we got wasn't as good as we had originally expected. Yes, our table was directly in front of a choke-point, so we were the first thing anybody saw if they entered the 2nd room! Unfortunately, the sign leading to the 2nd room was black and white and pretty plain and I think a lot of people didn't notice it. I heard a lot of people say either that they were just noticing the 2nd room very late or that upon walking in there were a lot fewer people in there. Bob Corby who organizes SPACE heard the same reports and started announcing on the PA, "please remember we have a 2nd room". I understand, it's not their fault - these are the kinds of things that happen when you have an event at a new location, which was necessary when their previous hotel location folded without real warning. There's always a learning curve.
Despite that, this was the best event I've had so far! And I even saw someone I didn't expect to see who had bought Woohooligan Vol 1. Into Dorkness a few months ago at RathaCon. He was telling a friend of his how good he thought my first book was.
My friend Angel, who shared the table with me didn't do quite so well. We both met some cool people, but she got almost no sales. I could tell it was a real blow for her. She does a ton of conventions (mostly anime) and because she busts her ass, she always walks away with at least a hundred in profit, but this time didn't break even. (I think a lot of her product - at least what she chose to display prominently - appeals more to the anime crowd. So I think her sales really reflect a different audience at this event.) Since I wanted to be supportive, I gave her a break on her half of the gas and table-fees. I'd also like to ask you wonderful folks to have a look at her work and if you like it and can afford it, pick something up from her store to help her out with her upcoming trip next week.
Thanks, Hooligans! Stay awesome!
Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know that I'll be at SPACE in Columbus on the 18th and 19th of this month and then I'll be out of town the last week.
We'll be sharing the booth with our friend Angel Melzak.
You can get more info about the SPACE event here: www.backporchcomics.com/space.…
So this months comic updates will probably be a bit more sparse than in the past couple of months.
Also congrats to StarDragger who won our last Patreon monthly commission raffle. patreon.com/woohooligan
Stay awesome, Hooligans!
Check out the sweet booth location we snagged!
