Just wanted to write up this post to say a big thank you to everyone who attended London Anime Con on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July.
Many people showed their support by viewing my work at my artist’s table, purchasing my art products and listening to my talk “Making It As A Manga Artist” which I presented on the main stage in front of a huge hall of people!
It was my very first time giving a talk to the public, so I was very nervous and had a bad chesty cough but I hope everyone found the talk interesting and useful! Also, thanks to all those who gave me positive feedback on my work and my talk, I really appreciate it!
The event was a lot of fun, I took part in the Otaku Fashion Show on the Saturday and modelled my first original t-shirt design “Cupcake Bunny” on stage, wearing it in a casual Sweet Lolita coordinate in white x blue. On Sunday, I wore the black version of the t-shirt in a more retro-looking red x black Lolita outfit.
Alongside the launch of my “Cupcake Bunny” t-shirts were art prints, postcards, badges, keyrings, magnets, a copy of Talking To Strangers, copies of the Eyeko comic, and some CDs for sale. I’m planning to sell a wider variety of products at future events.
If anyone would like to buy a t-shirt, I will be taking online orders shortly but for now you can check out how they look when worn~!
Thanks to my friend Francisco for taking photos of my experience at LAC.
