Calcon Get!

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 27, 2010, 7:20 PM
Well that was a lot of fun. You guys never fail to make me feel welcome, and to add to the amusement i had my two long time friends Vedder and Vriens there with me.

The weekend went so quickly, and over all I drew about 20 commissions. i started to use red pencil now as it is nicer to work with and I am much more loose with it. Needless to say ALL 20 of the Lolibukis sold out in the first day!

I wonder if these Lolibuki prints will make it to SDCC. i was thinking about going to Anime North in Toronto (my backyard practically) and A con in Dallas as well. I might make another print run and change something about it so that its different. All the Karins are sold and I have to come up with another print for this summer.

It freaking snowed in Calgary while i was there, meanwhile my wife was telling me about 20°c sunny weather at home with cherry blossoms.

I am so slammed with work as I have to finish colouring Ibuki 3 before i leave for Istanbul in May.

I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

I didn't know that your country have many events like this.
Mine country have only a few.
But it's nice to hear that people are that nice.

Omar, please come to Dallas for A-kon! I would love to meet you and see more of your work. I read the latest SF Legends with Ibuki and I enjoyed it!

Peace and love!

It was a pleasure seeing you at Calgary Omar. Thank you for all the hardwork that went into all the artwork I bought from you in Calgary.

Red pencil, huh? Hmmm..I've actually started noticing some art in various areas being done in red pencil. Is there a no-photo red out there, or stick with non-photo blue for scans?

Counting the days till SDCC to see the whole Udon gang.

Next year, I will try again to be commission #1. It's kinda cool pulling out the commissioned piece and seeing the 1 - 100 at the top left hand corner :clap:

Overall, an awesome con, although I have heard some grumblings about the talent portion of the con being a bit unorganized. However, artists were well provided for and I love the fact that Udon always gets a massive booth so all the artists can get face time with their fans.

Keep up the good work, Omar! We, the fans, love you for it :D

Yeah, that's why I hop from blue to red pencil and back. I think I spoiled myself with it though.

Glad ya did well, and I hope things go well for you as usual!
