Visioncon 2017

What a fun convention!! This was my very first year attending Visioncon, hosted down in Branson, MO, and before leaving I absolutelyย had to pre-register for a table for next year. The people were very nice and pleasant, the event itself had lots to do and see, and there was so much to do in Branson, even being the off season! For anyone who doesn’t know, Branson is where Silver Dollar City is, so it’s closed for the winter and the town is kind of on vacation for the same period of time. Still tons to do and see, which I didn’t do or see because conventions still exhaust me. Oh well, gives me an excuse to go back!

For the first time ever, I opened commissions at my booth during the event, which was fun and absolutely something I’ll be doing again. It never ceases to amaze me just how creative people are. I had a bunch of unique requests, so take a look through the images below and see for yourself!

I also learned about a couple other conventions being hosted around that area that I’m going to see about looking into. ๐Ÿ™‚

Music Concept Sketches


Now that Don Quixote is just about complete, it was time to move onto idea number two. I had decided in January to do “Music Through the Ages”, focusing on a variety of tshirt designs and a poster primarily. I find it interesting that, while music has progressed, from LPs to Cassettes to CDs to MP3s, it has started returning to LPs as their popularity has been re-discovered. The concept is that each of the four characters is listening to the next evolution in music, until you get to the MP3 player-person, who’s headphones’ cord will wrap all the way around the back of the tshirt and connect into the back of the turntable on the other side of the shirt. By the end of this, I’ll not only have a neat poster, but five tshirts– one with all four and one for each select person.

Anyway, these are the sketches. It has already moved into finalization, so I’ll have pictures of that up before long. ๐Ÿ™‚
