Well I'm back now from the furry convention and it seams that I don't have AIDS...just a little bit of GONORRHEA.
Haha joke aside! I had a GREAT time, better than I could ever had imagined!
It started out pretty weird though.
The opening ceremony was on Thursday evening but I decided to come on Friday morning instead.
The travel by train took me about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
When I got there and started to look around and trying to find my table a guard came to me and wanted to see my badge.
When I said that I didn't have one he asked me to follow him.
First I thought that he was gonna get me a badge but instead he led me to the entrance and asked me to leave.
I explained to him that I had paid for a table and had paper to prove it.
I then got to met the staff and after signing some papers I finally got my badge and could go to my table.
I started to doodle some ugly drawings in that way that I usually do.
A guy came up to me and asked me if I could do his fursona in that twisted style as a commission.
So I did it and he loved it and then another guy came who wanted his fursona darkly parodied, and another, and another.
So now I drew that batshit insane stuff that I love to do and I got payed for it, heck one guy even gave me a beer.
Of all the conventions I have joined then this is the best one yet.
People really enjoyed what I was doing and called my crazy style a BREATH OF FRESH AIR.
I also got to meet the guest of honor Bryan Talbot who is the author of the furry steampunk comic GRANDVILLE en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandvil…
He was very nice, signed a book that I bought and drew me a picture.
So my first furry convention was awesome.
I expected a weird orgy where everybody crawled around in old diapers.
Sure there where some stereotypes but most of them where just simple nerds who liked to draw cartoon animals.
I was happy when it ended though, the travel by train back and forward for four days was a bit of a pain.
But I don't regret going to it and will definitely go on next years convention.
Now I must prepare for the international comic convention in Stockholm this May.
