Anime North 2014

Kevin and I selling at Anime North 2014

Hi everyone!

How did your AN weekend go? Did you go to panels, bought WAY too much stuff and partied hard at the rave? If so, that's practically what I did too!

After going to AN for 6 years, I actually got to do something completely different this year. For the first time in my life, I gained the opportunity to sell my artwork at the convention. I would like to thank everyone who came by the Cafe Delish 2014 table and supported my artwork. It has inspired me to keep working harder and make much more for the upcoming convention called Atomic Lollipop.

Based on advices from experienced art vendors, I was told not to keep my expectations too high. There's nothing wrong to dream big, just try to be more practical and realistic. Since I was only selling for a day, I played it safe by just making enough merchandise for that one day. My ultimate goal was to at least earn enough money to cover my hotel and print expenses. Surprisingly, by the end of it, I earned enough money to even cover my starting costs! That was something I definitely did not expect at all.

It was quite hard for my friends to take a picture of my table due to the back light, but here's my set up! I admit it's not that great like the ones at Comic Market. However, after visiting the artist alley, I learned better ways to use my grid squares and present my work that I will use for next time.

By the way, I wouldn't have been successful if it wasn't for my brother's help. His name is Kevin Agoncillo and goes by the art name called "Digital Ripple". You can check out his amazing work here: Digital Ripple Art

So thanks again for the support. I'm currently working on art for Art in the Open and Atomic Lollipop. I will keep you all posted on what's happening for those two events.

Anime North Prep

This year, I will be selling my artwork for the very first time at Anime North on May 24th 2014, along with merchandise made by the maids of Cafe Delish. The proceeds will be donated to charity!

Do note that the table is NOT at the Comic Market in the TCC. It's actually at the hotel, opposite to this location, called the Double Tree. I will be selling outside the Terrace Room next to where Cafe Delish is taking place. Thus, I'll be dressed as a maid using my maid persona "Nyamo".

Meet me at the Double Tree!
Be sure to pass by and say hello. This merchandise table will only sell on Saturday from 11am - 7pm. It would be super awesome if you could support us. We will be selling 50 limited edition "Cafe Delish 2014" maid prints. Get your print as soon as possible so that you can get yours signed by the maid of your choice!

See you at Anime North!

What kind of things do you like to do during your spare time?

As for me, I love to play Airsoft. It's a sport that I got into recently and boy it's awesome! Currently, I'm trying out to be a part of Covert Ops, a Canadian airsoft team. In order to be a full pledged member, I have to show my dedication to the group and become a better airsoft player. Unfortunately most of the practice games happen during the weekend which interferes with my work. But somehow, I'll manage!

John H., the leader of the group, divided the group into little groups. The team I'm a part of is called "Team Bad Intentions" so I designed a patch that would reflect the group.
