OMGward!

The expo was just insane! I'm just recovering from it, with a little net therapy...=P

I had soooo much fun with :iconsoyamilku:, I would do it again in a heartbeat! It was her first time but you did great gal! Can we do it again pleeeaaassse!!!
I also met :iconcutemew: who was behind her, and thank goodness we didn't share! I didn't realise how much stuff she brought! There was a great big wall of prints looming over us, and clearly people thought I was the genius behind the art, although I did pretend to be her here and there and I did such a better job!! =P=P *love you!* Hope you come to the UK again!

Here's a summary of what happened in nice digestible chunks because I can't be arsed to type it out...

Saturday
:bulletred: Underestimated how long it would take to get to the expo so I arrived after 9, when everyone was coming in! So trying to set up was manic!
:bulletred: Finally (after how many years, we're so old!!) :iconfunkyalien: who came to my table, I just had to give him a hug! Sorry if I scared you, or didn't meet up to your expectations...=P I wonder how long it'll be til we meet again...!?
:bulletred: Finally met my long lost soul mate :iconstarlias: (she may beg to differ) since I saw her some years ago but didn't know who she was until after, she got her deserving copy of the artbook. Hope you like it!!
:bulletred: Noticed how friggin' hot it was and being swamped by commissions, I had a nervous breakdown and ran out the hall to sit out side half dead. My sister saved me and looked after the table and everything.
:bulletred: Had a handy aspirin my sis had and felt soooooooooooooo much better after that! Got back to doing some more commissions, and a very very slow rate...=P


Sunday
:bulletblue: Got in just before 10, although if I didn't get that early train I ran for, I would have been much later!
:bulletblue: Met 2 friends from uni, my table mate and my Publisher all before getting into the actual hall!
:bulletblue: So much cooler than Saturday and a lot less busy! Was pretty slow in the morning...
:bulletblue: ...then got swamped by commissions again, as well as table mate.
:bulletblue: Managed to see :iconkurokumo: and the eyeko store! I was hoping to buy something from there...
:bulletblue: Ended up only buying one thing which I intended to get...FAIL! I kind of wish I had more time to look around...I wanted to see Assassin's Creed 2 and Tekken! (although I'll be playing that soon enough...)
:bulletblue: Had to go home on my own...probably not the highlight of my day, pretty boring! But glad to get home and have some dinner! I survived on a banana!

I met many other great people but also missed a lot which I really gutted! Next time as I keep hoping! Next time I'll promise myself to enjoy the place a bit more too!


---------------------------------------------

Okay, onto important stuff. I have lots of copies of the Secret Colours artbook so I'm now opening it out onto the net! Horraaaaah! Here are the details:

If you'd like a copy, email me at this address: karen_lusted@hotmail.co.uk

With your details: Name, shipping address and form of payment.

I except: Paypal (preferred), nochex (I think) and cheque.

I will email back with a ref number that you should include when you pay. I'll email when the order has been sent, although the postal service is being ridiculous...

The books costs 13 pounds (sorry for the lack of pound sign, it doesn't come up using this keyboard!)

Postage will be worked out individually. So state what type you'd like (e.g. 1st/2nd class, recorded.

Do also state how many copies you want, I will assume if you don't you would want 1.

That's I think! Just note or email if you have any questions! I need to send out pre-orders this week...whoot!


Here's some pics for you to squint your eyes at!

------------------------------------------

:star: :star: :star: :star:

Okey dokey! The price has been settled and it will stay at £13.  Just to give you some specs (so you know you're getting your moneyz worth!):

:star: It's 90 full colour pages (well albeit there's grey pencil, it's still printed in colour!)
:star: It's cover is matte laminated.
:star: The cover is 300gms, should be thick to withstand...opening and closing...
:star: the pages are 120gms so should be think enough for turning...=P

Don't worry, I would have liked to have headed out with you, but you cleared up so quickly, it wouldn't have been fair for you or your BF to have to wait for me!

It was good to finally put a name to a face on Saturday when I came to collect my copy of Secret Colours. It's a fabulous book, you did a great job getting it all together.

I came to find you at the end of Sunday but you guys had gone! ;A; I'm so sad I didn't get a copy of the artbook! Ugh, that's the downside to working behind a stall, you just don't get the chance to actually look around the Expo properly!

Anyways, if you don't mind posting me a copy I can pay for postage? I has PayPal~

You and Soya had such cool stuff~! I hope we can chat properly another time~

I am so sorry! I did stay behind a bit but I really had to leg it, because I was in the predicament of not having a phone so I could call my parents any old time, and the trains on sunday are scarce! I should have headed over to your stall but a little missus behind me wouldn't let me go!! =P

I'll send an email to you about stuff...=P

Yes I remember, sorry for seeming rude-ish or out of it. It was so hectic! I would have had a chat if I wasn't so busy. I have done in the past but other people weren't haven't it! "draw me! draw me!" It still haunts me....=P If you go to the next event, do make an attempt to pull me aside and chat! I do like meeting people from online! =P Thanks for stopping by though! =P

Well they were 3 pounds for A5 size and 5 for A4 size. Although I was pummeled by my friend next to me saying its too cheap! I'm thinking that now because I was seriously swamped, especially on saturday and I couldn't cope!! But if I was to increase the price, I would try and spend more time on them, because maybe I'll have more time!! =P

And that american girl...she wouldn't let me go!! =P=P Bless her.

lol you should do that poll again when you first have the idea of making the book to ask people whether they want a sequel for the book
