Tracon X is over now and as usual my mood is tired mixed with sad and happy. The con was wonderful, I enjoyed it as always, but the fact that it comes to an end is always sad. It’s a bit weird to be home alone with cats after being surrounded by people, meeting and chatting. It’ll take some time to get used to everyday life again, especially after all the preparation work and planning and the con itself is no longer a part of it.
I was mostly stuck at the artists alley - but not in a negative sense by any means! (For the most part at least. I’m still a bit disappointed that I missed one concert I really wanted to see.) I really, really love being at the artist’s alley. Being surrounded by other artists and people who appreciate art is so nice. It just feels so nice when people compliment your art, but it feels equally nice to compliment others because I know and I can see how nice it feels. And of course it’s great when your art sells, it’s also a compliment of its own, but I really also appreciate it when people say it to you in person. I had a great time and people pretty much cleaned up my entire table, of which I’m really really grateful.
Usually I’m just at the artist’s alley, but this year I was also asked to be a panelist in a Nuzlocke panel, where the purpose was to introduce the challenge to people and maybe to inspire people to try it out. It was fun and I think we did a good job. The space where the panel was held was less than ideal - it kinda sucked tbh, and the tech as well. But it was still a nice experience. The space was full and people seemed entertained enough, and maybe someone got some inspiration, who knows.
Anyway, thank you for everything from my behalf! I hope that I’ll be able to do this again next year. Now I will have more time to focus on other art like commissions and maybe also my own Nuzlocke comicc as well as some gaming (WITCHER 3 AAAAAA)!
