My Life At ACen – a Look Back

May 16, 2014

There’s a thing on social media called Throwback Thursday. It’s a way to have a post that isn’t involved and detailed by just showing something from the past, usually a photo. Of course much like The Bloggess, I’m not really good at following directions so this post will be pretty detailed. My first Anime Central was way back in 2003. The specifics are fuzzy on how we found out about it but I do know that we ended up driving to Illinois with a friend of a friend (hi Nicole) and stayed at her friend’s place (hi Shannon and Rich)…

ACen – after con report

May 1, 2012

It’s amazing how long and short something can seem at the same time. Anime Central is like this – even with being there for almost a full week nowadays it still flies by. Chris and I got in on Wednesday, and after checking in to the hotel unpacking, and getting our staff schedule sorted we headed to a lovely little Japanese place up the road as suggested by a local friend. View from our room

New designs printed and integrated into the stock folder. I am now at over 170 button designs. See how I slave for you people? That’s averaging 10-20 new designs a year to keep things fresh. Make sure you stop by and see what’s new Anime Central in the Artist Alley. Table 001 and 002.

ACen

Whew. ACen is over for another year. Hard to believe it went by so fast. I am only now getting to my writeup on it, as I’ve been recovering from “con plague”. I had a fantastic time despite a few hiccups (fire evacuation!), and it was wonderful seeing everyone. We had a fair number of cosplayers (and just people wanting a souvenir) come by for their photo buttons. Next year I promise we’ll have a good stock of colors for the decorative rings so no one misses out! There was a great response and feedback for MahJong House as well.…

Thank you to everyone who came out to Animarathon! Now that the con circuit season is about to get in full swing here at Disjointed Images (ACEN in 29 days!) we’re focusing on what new designs to have on display. I’ve got some great ones already in the works, but as always, you’ll have to come find us to see them. Past designs are always found on our shop. We also now have HEARTS for the photo buttons in red and silver! These work just like the colored rings, only in a heart shape (with an open center for the…

Youmacon recap / End of year ramblings

Youmacon recap / End of year ramblings

Phew – quite the time gap between posts. To quickly fill you in: we decided very last minute to throw together a WEDDING with no budget, little time, and a big dream. That pretty much ate up any spare time we had. It was however a lovely wedding, and everything went perfectly. Not long after we came back from our honeymoon, it was time to get everything together for Youmacon. It was a great weekend, lots of our fan/customers coming by to see the new designs, and a few new people too. I got to draw a squirrel, a goat…

Whew. ACEN 2009 is officially over, and I’m home recovering. Thank you to everyone who stopped by. As usual, the make your own button corner was very popular (lot’s of Mother’s Day buttons) and we had more cosplay photos than ever before. Thank you to those who left great feedback on the forums, it’s much appreciated. See you next year!
