Anime Central 2014 advertisements, business cards, and promos…GO!!!
And here we are with another year in summary, compliments of data from the WordPress 2013 Annual Report. Just go read the report. I would have at least liked to have given some thoughts on the data as I did in previous years, but I honestly can’t muster the effort at this point. Just wanted to get this out because it probably wouldn’t get out any other way. Too much on my mind coupled with the random impulses I get. Happy New Year…I guess?
Back in the day I said I would make good on a promise to create a class for another Dungeons & Dragons enthusiast. I made good on that promise, experiencing full well the troubles of making something balanced, and still making something that felt more like a joke than something a Player can legitimately use. Mind you I’ve still yet to play the class as written and already have ideas for rewrites, so it could still be a decent class if I can just get the data to show it to be the case. Any takers? Point being, I feel it’s my duty to make something else with a bit of seriousness this time, and thought it would be fun to make a custom monster from a very popular series of fantasy games: Final Fantasy.
Something like this is nothing new, as anyone with a simple Google search can tell you. I’ve had this idea for awhile but never really committed to it, so when I saw others took on the task before me, I had to take a look. And immediately headdesked. As it is with all fandoms, a lot of people wish to spread their love of it into other mediums like I’m doing. Problem being there are a lot of people who have no business doing it, either because they can’t do the source any justice, don’t know what they are doing, or insert too much of themselves into the task. The last item is fairly constant in fan fiction…and I’m guilty of that as well. Neopets is Serious Business, yo. Continue reading
On August 24, 2013, I attended Geek.Kon 2013, the only other convention I went to other than Anime Central. Given how I’ve always written something about ACen after coming home (six articles over the years…and counting), it only made sense to write something for Geek.Kon as well, you know? Granted it’s not going to be as large because I didn’t work the convention and only went there one day on my own dime, but got to give some notice to it, you know? Continue reading
And thus we round off another Anime Central with a list of all the advertisements, business cards, promos, etc. that I have collected through my walks in the convention space and hotel. I try and keep away from sharing duplicated adverts from previous years, so in other words get yon butts to those previous posts and giver yer business to them wonderful folk. There’s an industry and fandom to support, you hear? Onward!
- 8-Bit Pixel Visions – Pixel art made with Perler beads. Commissions are available. Erin Carroll? Bravo.
- A&G Ohio – An animation and gaming convention sponsored by the Nexus Gaming Alliance. More on them a bit later.
- A Certain Scientific Railgun – It’s an anime with lots of boom n’ bang. Filled with schoolgirls. So every anime ever? *shrug*
- Adventureland – What? A themepark in my anime convention? Huzzah for variety I suppose. Also, Iowa. Continue reading
