So Many Layers by Casas So Many Layers by Casas
My poster submission for this year's A-kon poster contest. 

A-kon is a Dallas-based anime convention that has been going on for 25 year this June which is the longest of any anime con can say they've been going for and it has been MY con for the last 11 years. I believe last year's total attendees was in the high 30,000. So, it's also one of the larger anime cons in North America. 

Special thanks to :icons3rb4n::iconchoco-bunni::icongrumpythesheep::icontuskat::iconkyokochibi::iconsirferrick::iconspiketail94: for letting me use their stuff for the artist alley stuff in the background and :iconsilentreaper: for letting me stick her fox in a box and throw decorations and party favours on it.

If you get the tshirt one, let me know how it feels to have EVERYONE wearing something you drew. 

Also, take a lot of pictures of people/walking easels.

Nah, didn't get one. AX though is a sure thing. 

Need to work on stuff for that. Just realized that I have a month and a half to get stuff to the printers. 

Do you have one? We should do an exchange of some sort. Those are always fun.

I judge you as much as you should. BTW, got the book and the other stuff. I was kinda wanting something a bit more gory, but I can make do. Hopefully, I can fill that baby up with some awesome stuff and make it worth your efforts.

Haha well, at the time I didn't really know anyone that smoked. Now, of course, I have a job in which I am with around 15 smokers, half of whom smoke a pack a day. So I might be able to whip a little something up for you.

And I would love for you to draw in my book. I've unfortunetly recently decided that that design is a little too small... At the time of sending it, I hadn't actually tried writing or drawing in those sorts. Its perfect for fitting in your pocket, but its hard to fit anything decent in it. So, next time I shall be more likely to send something that's easier to draw in.

It would not the the smallest thing i drew in. I'm used to drawing on post-its at work, like the little ones.

Ahh fantastic, you can draw int his instead. Unless you have a good reason to draw in post-it-notes instead. Like, if you draw creepy pictures before anyone else arrives and then hide them everywhere. And like, no-one knew who it was. That could be fun.

I tried to replicate the carpet found at the convention since I had a picture if last year. It was a lot more complex than i remembered.
