I know it's been two weeks, but I needed a little time to recover (and time to just figure out what I needed to do next!).

AWA was a fantastic con, as always, and I already miss everyone bunches. My sales were pretty okay overall, though of course I know I can always do better.

And that's just what I'm going to do. It's going to involve some risks, but honestly it's worth taking, in my opinion.

I've always felt my table lacked a certain identity...like nothing really makes me stand out. I'm definitely not the best artist, far from it, so I have to be able to make up for that in some way. Obviously comics are my strongsuit, so I definitely need to put the bulk of my focus into that.

But, I still want to be able to improve on the quality of my prints. This is where it gets a bit tricky since these are definitely not my strength. And I'm going to be honest, I'm really not interested in most of the popular fandoms out there, and the fandoms that I am interested in everyone else is making art for already (well, Jojo is an exception as I love drawing that!). I'm not going to force myself to draw something I'm not 100% interested in because it won't be my best work.
So, what's a Shadi to do?
Well, I want to put more work into making fighting game fanwork. And not just Tekken. My Cammy illustration is probably the best thing I've done in a long time, and people often remark about my Guilty Gear piece. I feel like there's not much representation for fighting game fans in the artist alleys, so I want to do something about that.

Now, I know it's a huge gamble since it's a really niche market, but I'm going to be honest; my prints don't sell all that well anyway, so I don't feel like I have anything to lose if most of my fanwork focus is put into the things I love most. Besides, I can always offer the prints for sale online if the cons don't work out. ;)

I think I've rambled for a good while. I'll talk more about my comic plans in the next entry. :heart:
