Boomslank going to Animazement!
After our experience at Ichibancon, naturally we were hungry for some more. Animazement is the con here in our home-town of Raleigh, and we hold it near and dear for a few reasons. First, it was the first convention we have ever attended, ever, in our lives. I remember thinking it was absolutely crazy, in an awesome way. I mean where else would you go that a life-size Pokemon battle would seem completely appropriate? By the way, Blastoise won. Secondly, it was the first place where our artist got his first bit of public recognition. We had simply set out a few posters and maybe two shirts in the art auction room. The response from the con goers was inspirational, and was a huge motivation for us to keep on doing what we love. Lastly, it's right next door. Can't put a price on that.So where was I going with this? Oh yea! So you all remember our well documented Ichibancon adventure. Well we are hoping to recreate that experience. So we are absolutely excited to announce that the Animazement jury deemed us worthy of an artist alley table! We love the artist alley because it gets us up close and personal with people. We will never forget when Vic Mignogna and Lisa Ortiz visited our table. I doubt the experience would have been half as special had we been in the dealer room. We made a lot of new friends at the last con, and we certainly hope to make more at Animazement. The con is all the way out to May, but we can't wait. Thank you Animazement jury!
