I meant to write this sooner but there's a reason for that.
and that reason is quite simply put:

there's really nothing noteworthy to write about.

that's not to say i didnt have fun - i just didnt have as MUCH as i did last year. i may have had a table last year, but not having one this year showed me i dont have a lot of interest being outside of the artist alley. i'll be the first to say that im not very big on anime - at least, not anymore. it certainly didnt help that this year's flavor was of Kill la Kill, which was pretty much the nail in the coffin of what is now my former love of watching animu. and quite frankly i will not miss it.

but that's a different story, this is about my experience at AX this year.
again, i didnt have as much fun just walking around. i thought i'd enjoy it more as i'd have more time to mingle and take photos. while i did get to do so, i didnt think too much about what else im going to do outside of that. i was already disinterested in generally watching animu, so none of the panels caught my eye. even for the ones that DID catch my eye, they were so late in the day i was already exhausted and bored i just went back to my hotel.

i've now made it a point if i was going to attend a convention, im going to have an artist table. after all, i'll have a place to sit, deposit my own purchases during the day, have things to work on, and i'll be in my favorite part of the exhibit hall. otherwise, what the heck am i going to do for 4 days? i was ready to go home after the second.

but okay, what DID i enjoy? well here's a list:
+ caught up with many of the artists/friends/folks i've mingled with years prior
+ met new artists who i hope to catch with via social networks and future conventions
+ acquired Cristina Vee's autograph and chatted with a bit
+ acquired a butt-ton of prints and art books from the artist alley
+ got nice commissions from wonderful artists
+ attended a cosplay gathering (in this case, One Piece)
+ played Guilty Gear Xrd (it was ok)

but yes, that was pretty much it. compared to last year's lists of pros, its really small. but it's not like it was a massive disappointment - just could have been a lot more fun, i think. its not like it was the con's fault - how can it be - i just didnt find much else to like.

welp, until next year.
hopefully i can grab a table too.
