Cherry Blossom Festival and Sakura Con!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 10, 2014, 2:34 PM







Hey guys! It's con season again and I'll be at the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco's Japantown this weekend (April 12-13th), and at Sakura Con in Seattle Washington the weekend after (April 18-20th). As usual, I'll be there with all of my prints, books, buttons, and cards! :)

My table location for the Cherry Blossom Festival is on the lower floor of the Japan Center, right outside the Kinokuniya book store entrance. For Sakura Con, I'll be in the Artist Alley at table 411. I was actually unable to get a table in time for this con, but a kind artist, mind-crash offered to share his with me :) We both look forward to meeting everyone and making new friends so come by and say hi! :D

I was unlucky this year we had such a harsh winter that my cherry blossom tree only had a single bloom.

Argh.... this is a testament for me to check dA more frequently. Like Trina, I went but didn't know you were going to be there! Will you be at FanimeCon this year?

I couldn't go to Sakura con this year (which was super disappointing! ;A; ) But thankfully I have an amazing friend who got a few of your prints and a book for me, so I'm really happy :)

Definitely going next year! Hope to see you there :D

I'm so glad that you came to Sakura-Con. I had been wanting to give you something ever since last year. Now that you have, I really feel as though I finally accomplished something that I was not capable of doing until just today (technically yesterday according to the time).

I won't be able to attend tomorrow (technically today), and I'm sad that I didn't get to give my proper farewell. In any case, I'm glad to have met you again. It was certainly a pleasure and a fine privilege. Thanks for taking your time to go out and sell your prints to your fans.

It was so awesome to see you at the Cherry Bloom Festival Yuumei!
I wish I could have bought all of your posters and books but I didn't have enough money (;∆;)'' I was really too excited/embarrassed to say anything other than inquire about WE, but it still was really great!
I'll be looking forward to your next outing!

Pooh... I wish you were here for the 19th... ;___; It's my birthday, and when no one was going to show up for my birthday party, I was going to go see you in SF... Oh, well, though... I'll figure out something else and just stalk you at the local convention in Summer when I'm back from traveling, as usual. ;u;

I'm happy you're coming to Seattle again.

Everyone loves the two pieces I got last year. They hang in my living room.

I was at San Francisco's Cherry Blossom Festival and didn't expect to see you there. I also didn't check my DA when you posted this. Today was such an awesome day. :3

I should have started a conversation, but my friend and I were exploring -everything-

I'll definitely stop by your table and maybe even say hi if my social anxiety will allow me. XD (if you see a long brown haired girl in glasses quietly hanging back a bit behind all the people flocking your table, it might be me. XD)
