I have friends who go to cons (un message bilingue!)

An announcement/ Une annonce

I’m a relative newb when it comes to being an exhibitor at conventions but I’m  working hard at it. I’m sure I’m not the only one. I had the idea when I was at the Mini Comic Con on Montreal a few weeks ago to start a Facebook group for dealers and artists who go to cons. The goal is to get feedback on which conventions are good for dealers, tips for setting up tables and pricing and find people to share tables with or maybe car pool. Most of the conversation happens in french and it’s mostly centered on cons accessible for people in the eastern parts of Canada but if you are a dealer or an artist in conventions and you are interested, drop me a line on Facebook!

Je suis relativement débutante comme exposante dans les conventions, mais je travaille fort quand même. Je suis certaine que je ne suis pas la seule. Pendant le dernier Mini Comic Con de Montréal, j’ai eu l’idée de fonder un groupe Facebook pour les exposants et les artistes qui vont dans des conventions. Le but est d’avoir du feedback sur les différentes conventions, d’avoir des trucs pour les tables, les prix, de trouver des gens avec qui partager une table ou avec qui faire le trajet. Beaucoup des conversations sont en français et on est surtout concentrés sur les conventions accessibles aux gens dans l’est du Canada mais si vous êtes un exposants et que vous êtes intéressez, envoyez-moi un message sur Facebook!

Some Friends/Des amis

I meet all kinds of wonderful people when I go to cons, and I see al kinds of surprising things. Here are some new friends.

Mike Rooth.

Mike was our “across the alley” neighbor. He spent a lot of time working in front of con goers, I think this might explain his success.

EveChat.

Eve was my tablemate. I think our themes fit well together without competing. For some reason, she has a lot of cute stuff, but her zombies were the most popular.

Catherinette Rings.

One of our neighbors was Catherine of Catherinette Rings. Her partner crafts the jewelry and she helps a lot with the sales and logistics and some of the design. We had time to chat and I had time to look at their beautiful steampunk sculptures.

Kanthara

I also had the pleasure of hanging out with Kanthara a.k.a. Karine Charlebois, comic artist and storyboarder extraordinaire.

Mini Comic-Con December 2011

There is going to be a small Anime and Comic book Expo on December 4th 2011 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at Place Bonaventure. It’s by the same people who organise Montreal ComicCon in September, but much smaller and I don’t expect any line ups. There weren’t any last year, at least. I’m not sure there is going to be much in the way of panels or activities, but there are going to be around twenty artists tables and a hundred exhibitors. I will be there, sharing a table with EveChat so drop by and say hi.

They are also going to announce the guest for the big even next September and there is going to be a big Innistrad M:tG tournament organised by Carta Magica.

Admission 5$, free for kids.

—————–

Il y aura une petite exposition d’Animé et de BD le 4 décembre 2011 de 10h à 17h à la Place Bonaventure. Elle est organisée par les même gens qui font Le ComicCon de Montréal en septembre, mais c’est beaucoup plus petit et je ne m’attend pas à des files d’attentes. En tout cas, il n’y en avait pas l’an passé. Je ne suis pas certaine qu’il y ait des panels ou des activités mais il y aura une vingtaine d’artistes et une centaines d’exposants. J’y partagerai une table avec EveChat alors passez me voir!

Il y aura aussi l’annonce des invités pour le ComicCon de l’an prochain et Carta Magica organise un tournois de M:tG Innistrad.

Admission 5$, gratuit pour les enfants.
