A-Kon 23 or Greater

Post by Scott Gardener »

I've titled this thread "23 or Greater" since there will be more A-Kons in subsequent years.

Although A-Kon is officially an Anime convention, it's also an eclectic meeting ground of gaming and subculture. Steampunk has recently gained a strong presence there. Therians and furries have a home there as well. But, most notably, A-Kon has been a major launch platform for Anthony Brownrigg's film projects, including Freeborn. It helps that both he and his wife Meagan are two of the people helping to run the convention. On stage, you'll see Tony doing introductions and rules videos, and behind the scenes you'll... If all goes well... Not notice the tremendous amount of work Meagan does the whole time tokeep things running smoothly.
Taking a Gestalt approach, since it's the "in" thing...

I'll be at Akon23 :D I got invited as a guest this year, super exciting but I'm also super nervous! :o
The last few years I've sold custom badges in the artist's alley with some friends, not sure if I'll do badges again this year, should have some books and copies of Womanthology though!
