Further Confusion 2011

Well, by the end it was turning into a sleep-depping haze of surreality, but FC was fun and profitable -- more fun than profitable, but of the two the fun is a lot more important. :) The flight out Thursday was largely a blur of Phoenix Wright (oh, Edgeworth, you're so bishy!), and then the rest of the con went by so fast I barely had time to stop and take a breath. I didn't get as many art requests as I expected, and I was surprised at just how many people who came by had never heard of Suburban Jungle. I sorta had the idea I'd become one of those people in the fandom that everybody knows but nobody pays attention to -- but it turns out just the opposite, I'm still obscure. Go fig!

So lesson learned here: promotion, promotion, promotion! But the good thing about that is I can fix people never having heard of me a lot easier than people having heard of me but just not giving a flap.

Sadly, this was my last con with the invaluable assistance of mammallamadevil, who is getting out of the convention biz. I don't mind telling you that I'm very nervous about the prospect of facing a table without her. The rarely-seen Mrs. Gneech (laurie_robey) will be helping at the table for Confuzzled, and at AC I'll be sharing a table with sirfox, which should be fun and demented. My con schedule after that is way up in the air at the moment.

My biggest seller at this con? The "Token Straight Guy" button. Make of that what you will!

FC, Muddypaws and you!
I was there as well, and Saturday you were my first stop!

Purchasing a book, and a "Watering Hole" T-shirt made me happy... for a time. Then I just had to get a Con-badge from you (awesome by the way) and I'm scanning the image. I'll send it to you via email on your business card.

As for discovering some have never heard of the SJ, I find that a bit astonishing. I know that, whenever I'm asked, I point lovers of comics to your site (among others that are clean & funny).

I'll be sending the scanned image today; Would you like me to also send the photo I took of you at your FC table?

And... dang! That's what I had come back to your table for, and couldn't recall.. I was going to buy one of those buttons! Well... there's on-line:-)

Cheers!

Re: FC, Muddypaws and you!
I'd love the pic as well, thanks! :)

The "Token Straight Guy" button actually sold out all of my stock, so it's going to take a few weeks to get more in.

Thanks again! (And now I know that grizzly47 = "Muddypaws," which I didn't know before!)

Re: FC, Muddypaws and you!
Sometimes I forget to mention it.

When I got my LJ account, the name of "Muddypaws" was taken so... I concocted the "Grizzly" nickname.


Hey... still a bear character.

You're many things, but a calm, collected butler with a quiet, soothing cough is not one of them!

Me too! At least we get to see the gneech soonish, after missing FC :D
It's a shame that North Wales couldn't be moved closer to Manchester though... ;)

oh btw....
if you want to add to your K&K/SH/OTF collections, send me a quick note to kerry@surfari.net. I have a couple of ideas that I can't publicly discuss....

Re: I will miss you too!
I hope I'll be able to see you there at least. So out of the con business or just out of cons period the end?

As long as I'm running gameshows at FC, I'm sure you'll be using them as an outlet for some self-promotion!
