Well Japan Expo 2 just ended and it seemed to go a lot smoother this year. I was skeptical about the indoor outdoor venue but I ended up liking the feel of it. It gave the show something that no other show in the area has. Being able to leave the hall, get some real food, and sit outside to enjoy your meal looked very pleasant. The addition of all the different food trucks also gave people a wide variety of food stuffs to pick from. All us con goers know how old nachos, a hotdog, or stale hamburger can be. Having chicken teriyaki, sushi, noodles, shaved ice, candy, and treats was a nice departure from the status quo. Attendance was up from last year and I saw a lot of new faces which means a fresh clientele from SFO and other North Bay cities. I have high hopes for this show next year with the plans and changes that are going to be put together for not only the artist alley but the show in general. To all my fellow artists out there in DA land. If you are local and you want a new show to do then set your sites on this one for next year. If anybody has any questions please feel free to message me and I will give you whatever info I can.
Next up is The Toy Havoc and Comic Chaos Show at the Alameda Fairgrounds, The Young California Building, in Pleasanton. It's on Saturday, September 13, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM with Early Bird entry at 8:00 AM for $13.00 dollars. It's a fun intimate show with a ton of parking and a nice size hall. it only cost $7.00 dollars for admission, at 10:00 AM, and kids under 8 are free. There will be prizes, contests, and me of coarse.
