I'm extremely happy that i was able to make it to Botcon this year. Especially considering it was technically the last one for Fun pubs.
I had brought art to sell, but i didn't really even think about it the whole time. I was swept away by everything else going on. I hadn't been to a Botcon in 13 years. I was able to meet a TON of people that i've known forever on the transformer message boards and here on DA that I've never been able to meet in person. And i'm talking like people i've been chatting and even collaborating art with for over a decade!
Since I'm in Germany for another 2 years at least, i don't know that I'll get to see those people at any other cons for a good while, but I was happy for the opportunities i had this past weekend. I came back with a renewed drive to create and a lot of inspiration. So that's a plus too. I would love to actually go back to being as productive artistically as I used to be.
I have made a lot of friends over the years through this medium and that fandom... and I had forgotten how awesome that actually is.
So to everyone I hung out with, chatted with, or even if we just briefly shook hands... thank you!
