Well, I'm here in a hotel room in Richmond Indiana, on my way back to MD from gen con and Robin's apartment. The con was huge, it was sort of like getting all the cable channels but still having nothing good on. I guess that's the price you pay for being tied to a booth the whole time. I would have liked to have gotten out and done more, maybe played a game or two, but at least I broke even and made a small profit off the masks. I don't think I'll do Gen con again, people just aren't interested in what I've got to sell and if they are, they're broke by the time they get through the entire dealer's floor to the art show in the back. It's just not a very good setup. I'm thinking of starting to go to some of the smaller, more art oriented cons though. Also, I got a lot of interest from people in the industry, other artists and even a movie special effects guy who wants to get in touch with me. (Cool!!) This means I have about a week to get a good website up. Help! Any suggestions/offers of aid? I'm willing to pay for layouts in favors, art or maybe even money. All in all, I had a good time at the con and I was happy to be able to see a lot of friends one last time before leaving for Japan. I'm still in denial about that whole thing, and I don't think I'm ready to be home. I think I have about three days of patience for the whole thing and then I'm going to have to start finding escapes. My dad (who flew out to drive home with me) is flipping through channels on the TV. Apparently I've been way more out of the loop than I thought. I had no idea the situation with Lebanon had gone this far. And I'm sitting around at a gaming convention? Argh. I have no buisiness feeling guilty if there's nothing I can do to help. ...I should be trying to find something I can do to help. I can't do art and save the world. Can I? Ok, this air conditioner is getting really cold.
