So WOW. This con was...
I got to spend time with a TON of great artists and friends, and spent almost all my time chatting, drawing, gaming, dancing (though I kinda cheated myself outta that), eating and just all around having an absolute blast. I got to meet and talk to some awesome people that I missed last year, but spent a ton of time with the awesome
(mistywolf on FA) and hung out and talked with
and got to meet a laundry list of awesome FA artists! Mistie and Dutch had an EXCELLENT fat fur panel, that in spite of AC's best efforts to hide and impede, went off amazingly and filled an entire panel room with fun and nice people for the better side of an hour and a half! Every single person that I spent time with was nice, fun, and entertaining, and if I don't go in depth about you here, please forgive me it doesn't reflect poor experience!
managed to truck his ass all the way up here, and he and I spent a LOT of time hanging out! Dude it was awesome chillin with you, drawin with ya, hanging out in general! I'm glad we were able to meet and chill out so much!
was the first guy I ran into in there, and super friendly! It was through him I got to meet other awesome individuals like
(who I'm sad we didn't get to hang too much) and all other manner of kewl doods!
was there again this year and we got to hang out and chat once more! Always nice to see him, and we did another fun little trade! We traded a fun pair of pokemon pictures and I managed to convince him to draw his first ever inflation picture >;3 got him to blow up his personal OC and he did a cute job of it! It was great seeing you again!
was there again and as always hilarious to hang out with, trade stories, laugh, and just make horrible jokes to one another! Along with
showing up again this year it was fun as hell to hang with these awesome individuals in a big ol art circle! I wish I'd gotten to chat with you all more!
Unfortunately I missed the FA of one gentleman, but his name was Mace and he was a good friend of
(who got held up and missed a lot of the con, poor bloke!) But this guy was an impressive world-builder and writer and an all around nice guy who was very pleasant to talk to! It was nice meetin you sir!
As the circle went along, I met a couple new people and traded sketchbooks with a couple of really fun artists,
who each did some lovely sketches in my book and were just fun to meet and hang out with! It was great meetin you guys!
Bangabear was another one I got to meet and talk with at length, along with
Banga was such a sweet guy, really fun to talk with and I wish we coulda hung out and traded books some time but such is life. Gill was also sweet to meet and talk with, but I'd wished we had gotten a better chance to chat! Hopefully next time, but it was great to meet you both!
was someone I didn't anticipate meeting there but I was really happy to run into! He's a member of the community that I've seen around for a long time and used to do a lotta nice inflation stuffs, but life goes on! It was still nice to meet him, and to have an admittedly touching and heartfelt convo with him about a lotta things! Furthermore he introduced me to
who no longer has a DA presence but was host to one of the websites that really got my start in the inflation realms and introduced me to the communities, so it was wonderful to get to meet both of them!
God if I forgot anything I'm so sorry! I met so many people that I can barely keep up with it all! This was leaps and bounds beyond the con last year (not to belittle it but it just compounded amazement!) and I can honestly say I can't wait to go back next year already, much less share all the awesome pictures I got from people this year and hopefully some of the things I did FOR people, which will be upcoming submissions!
It's great to be back, but I never wanted to leave!
