[Dragonmun Studios] A Quick MegaCon Update

Image
Thank you for letting me into your mailbox a second time this month! I received my table placement and map for MegaCon 2022 and am sending links to the floorplan as I've promised I would.  My Dragonmun Studios booth will be at Artist Alley table AA57. Information for that can be found here. It's looking like the easiest way to get to the artist area is to go along the left wall of the hall after ticketing. The PDF we were sent can be found at here . Please be aware that the show hours on there are for everyone, but the other schedules aren't. If you try to meet with vendors during those other times, it'll be an annoyance for everyone involved. I have a frequently asked question regarding some products and to answer it; no. I'm not currently taking pre-orders for the tarot cards, children's book, or Sivoa collectors box.

This seems to have allowed me to work on writing/art around the home remodeling and family stuff! I suppose I didn't realize just how much time in my day I dedicated to doom scrolling...  😅 This newfound time let me go in and restructure my Patreon tiers some. There's only two now (fun names pending), but they reflect what we discussed back in November/December regarding the sketch tier that I no longer have the backstock to fulfill.

It's really kind of hard to be in an industry that panders to whim more than necessity. As you all know, Lannie and I released a children's book on February 24th - which was her adorable kiddo's first birthday. It was also the day that Russia attacked Ukraine. All of a year's worth of build-up/planning and months worth of organic marketing just *poof* vanished in the flood of people taking to social media (and Facebook in particular) to share their usual brands of panic, outrage, and vitriol. My heart was broken on so many levels that day and I just gave up trying to promote anything on social media. I am aware that my woes are nothing compared to those of the poor people caught up in the conflict. I've done what little I can for them, but that's also kind of not the point of this letter. The point is that I've come to realize that social media isn't good for my mental health. I won't go into detail, but I decided to lock down my personal profile o
