After typing that title, “busy” no longer looks like a proper word.
For those who don’t know, I’m an artist. I sell art at comic conventions and expos. It’s a lot of fun, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. There’s lots to love! You meet new people (hopefully) make a profit, and there’s always amazing cosplays to admire.
However as an artist, it involves a lot of preparation before the show.
You always think you’re ready for an expo, but as it always turns out, you’re not.
I have a Christmas expo this weekend and today is my last day off before the show. I’ve been finishing these fun little beauties, and making more of them. I still have to put together some grab bags as I tried them at my last expo and they were a hit, pick which paintings I’m bringing to sell and repack my expo suitcases. I also need to come up with a rough idea of how I’m setting up my table in case I don’t have a lot of time before the show opens. So many things.
That’s not even touching on the school assignments I still have to finish.
(Though, I got three Excel sheets coded last night and I’m very proud of myself because Excel is the devil.)
But Bev, why are you blogging when you have so many things to do? There is a simple answer; I like to live dangerously and on the edge.
One of these days maybe I’ll sit down and write out an expo guide for aspiring artists!
(Hint: don’t procrastinate like me)
