My next featured artist is Moonkitty! Moonkitty is another fellow exhibitor that we work events with pretty often, and have collected quite a few awesome items from. They make high quality hand made stuff not only for cat lovers (and trust me, they have a ton of cat stuff!), but for fans of plush, small items and cute stuff in general! Below is a sample of just one of the many kinds items that continually draw us to their booth at shows.

Another con friend that I wanted to give a shout out to is Shlii Kawaii Toys, an indie toy business whose goal is to brighten the mood of their customers with “cute and goofy toy designs and accessories.” After not only working a ton of events with Shlii, but acquiring quite a few high-quality, hand made items for myself and my family, I’d say that’s a goal that is definitely achieved. They have a ton of original items as well as some that fans of video gaming will appreciate as well, all ridiculously adorable! Below is just a very small sample:

Posted in Blog, Features | Tagged , , , , , , , , blog. episode 82: Featured Artist: Afterimages of Ghostfire

Next up is an artist that I’ve been meaning to feature for a long time: Julia Lichty and Afterimages of Ghostfire. I remember meeting Julia for the first time nearly 15 years ago at one of the early Zenkaikon conventions. I was drawn to her style then, so much so that years later I asked Julia to do the cover art for Feralia: Requiem of Mist, which turned out amazing! Julia is a regular at conventions in ths US and if you’ve been to a con in the northeast, you may already be familiar with her work without even realizing it – she’s done program cover and badge art for cons like Otakon and Zenkaikon just to name a couple. Here are a couple examples of her work, including the book cover 🙂

One of the best things about both writing and vending as a small business is the amount of cool and talented people I get to meet at cons. Today I wanted to feature Miniature Inspirations, who makes adorable felt sculptures. I have several of them in my house and I can confirm that they are ridiculously cute.

Miniature Inspirations are fellow Marylanders like myself and are regulars at a bunch of area conventions and festivals. (We’ve spent many a weekend in the same halls over the years!) They hand make a ton of cool stuff, and on top of that they are super nice people!

Supporting artists, writers and small business as conventions cancel

If you’re into anime, gaming or comic cons, you’ve likely heard by now about the massive amount of cancellations that are being forced to happen across the country due to the coronavirus outbreak. While most would agree that it’s in the best interests of everyone’s health, it has made it extremely difficult for the creators and vendors whose biggest source of income is conventions. We’ve been feeling it at Alicia’s Anime, as we’ve had 7 cancellations and one show rescheduled. Personally it’s also rough because cons are a great outlet for my books as well.

So what I’ve decided to do is get back into featuring artists, writers, other creators and small businesses that I’ve been lucky to meet over the nearly 16 years I’ve been doing events. I’ve been meaning to do it regularly for a while now, and this is the perfect opportunity, as many of them are struggling right now.

I’ve already featured a few: PLB Comics, Jason Powell, S.O. Thomas, & C Jakes Draw, but I have many more to add! I’d like to do at least one per day.

Lots of awesome folks to come!
