Updates… AnimeCTX, AnimeFest, CTC GeekFest

Hey, y’all! Long time you see!

I’ve been kinda quiet on all my social media platforms due to taking on a heavy workload at my main job and also going on a couple trips. Things are slowing back down again, so I hope to start going back to doing weekly posts soon. On-wards to the updates…


I’ll be attending one of Austin’s new anime conventions the August 4-6. The same organization that puts together IKKiCON are organizing AnimeCTX, so it’ll be interesting to see how it goes. I’m presenting my Freelancing in the Manga Industry panel Saturday, August 5 at 1:30 PM-2:30 PM.

AnimeFest 2017

I’m taking a break from paneling at AFest this year because of ALL the guests I want to meet and/or attend their panels. There are going to be a few movie premiers I’m really looking forward to watching and all the Yuri!!! On Ice related stuff.

Manga Lettering

I’ve taken a semi-hiatus from accepting new lettering contracts and that is mostly due to my increased workload at my main job. I’m hoping to start accepting contracts again mid-August to early September.
