Get accepted to college.
Research cons in the area.
Proceed to spazz because BOTH MomoCon and Dragon*Con are in Atlanta.
Cry tears of joy over guest lists while glancing nervously at empty wallet.
Chin up! I know Momocon offers plenty of free passes and goodies yearly. :D Make sure to keep an eye out for all of their contests and hope that luck is on your side?
Sorry for being MIA on Tumblr— the never ending slew of computer problems struck yet again. I hope (hopehopehoooope) that I don’t have anymore issues for a good, long while…my blood pressure can’t take it any more abuse! I firmly believe most of my problems are due to Dell cramming a bunch of equipment together in a tiny space with, like, two tiny fans and almost no venting in the case. This time, it was my video card that was sent to the farm up north.
I’ll be passing through MTAC on Saturday just to cruise through the Dealer’s and AA (and also do some shopping in the area). I’m excited to see all the goodies that everyone’s been working hard on! There’s a few panels I wouldn’t mind seeing but I doubt I’ll be able to due to timing conflicts and just not being there all weekend. :<
Hopefully, I’ll get back on track with commission work now and maybe even some new sketches/other works to toss on here in the coming week or two.
HEY ARTIST ALLEY FOLKS I HAVE A LOGISTICAL QUESTION
As far as stickers versus buttons, is one easier to produce than the other? I’m personally leaning towards buttons, but I have yet to find a good quality site that does not require a minimum order
since I have no idea of how to access a personal button maker asdljkfafds.
Any recommendations for something like that? Or a preference for one versus the other?
Stickers, if you’re making them yourself, aren’t too bad until you get to the cutting process- which can actually be painful after a long time and tedious. If you have a good _comfortable_ pair of scissors, a steady hand, and leave enough space around them to get each a clean white band, you should be okay. I haven’t found a really good quality sticker paper yet, though. I’ve yet to find a place online to purchase die-cut stickers for the prices I’m willing to turn around, add my costs, and sell them for.
Buttons, again, if you’re doing them yourself, take a little more time with the button template setup, punching the circles, assembly of the button, etc. and, y’know, the costs with owning your own machine.
Since you mentioned ordering them from elsewhere, it really depends how comfortable you are with following a provided template and/or trusting your artwork to someone else to work with. I did see some websites that offer ordering numbers between 1-49, 50-99, etc with discounts for higher quantities but some of the prices for lower quantities were just… ouch.
I purchased my own button machine because a) I’m a perfectionist, b) also, masochist apparently.
