I can't wait!! Unfortunately, I'm not going to have as much new work as I'd like/had planned thanks to school and work. Not to mention most of my free time this month will be dedicated to packing since I'll be moving from my parents house to an apartment closer to my university on May 1st. But regardless, I'm excited and I can't wait!!

I managed to expand my designs quite a bit from last year, and I'm really geeked to see how well they do. Plus the fun of running around and seeing all the cosplayers. I can't believe it's so close!

I'm excited, however I'm behind on my work schedule by like a week. and I planned out the remaining weeks, and all of them were pretty full, so being behind is kinda bad. I'm trying to fix it this week as much as possible and then disperse the extra late stuff over the rest of the weeks left. even though I'm behind, scheduling out what needs to get done every week really helps me stay on track alot more then when I just wrote everything I had to do on a big piece of paper and I'd work and stuff, but always come up short of things because I didn't know how much work needed to get done each day or week to be able to finish it all.

I'm really excited about all the new products I'm introducing at Acen this year, and I'm pretty eager to find out which ones go over really well so I can make more of them for the rest of the cons this year.

seeya seeya,
Good luck everyone!!

I have a nice long list of things I want to make/things I have planned, and materials for so much other stuff.... and I think I have only -maybe- 10% done of what I want >< I hit freakout mode like a week ago ^^* I have no idea how I'm going to get everything done... BUT I totally have new inspiration to get more paintings and things done (if I can get the money, maybe even actual prints) since there have been more guests announced, and some of them worked on old stuff (I'm doing a "Classic" collection of paintings, which includes characters from shows and such that are over 15 years old). ARGH I need to learn to manage my time better! ^^*

I am like...running around in circles screaming "They'res not enough time! They'res not enough time!"

I still have a ton of things to do...including finishing my charity ball dress, 2 cosplays, my friend's 2 cosplays, and all of my artist table things. @_@ It would help if I was working a bit more, considering I really need to buy more supplies.

Oh, AND I have a panel to run, too.

Well, I haven't had much time to work on my stuff for AA due to classes and work. I have an animation I'm working on for my graphic design class, papers in both 19th century art and world history classes, plus designing a conference program and posters for work =/

But as for AA stuff I have 3 different color images ready to sell prints of (2 fanart and 1 OC), with plans for at least 3 more color images and a few BW. I have started designing my signs, but that isn't my highest priority right now. Plus I still want to screenprint some more posters, but I don't know when I'm going to manage that. I still have to figure out how I'm paying for school in Spring/Summer/Fall so I can graduate in December -__-;

Hectic hectic hectic.

That sounds so similar to my schedule. I've got a video for my video editing class, a game for my actionscript class, 4 papers for OLS and Science classes, and a bunch of little assignments in between of work, moving and ACen. I'm making prints of older stuff I haven't printed before, as well as OCs, just to have some 'fresh' material to sell. I make key chains too, and I had so many new ones I wanted to make but unfortunately I'll only have a handful of those done.

Good luck to you in your classes and getting ready for ACen! (This goes for everyone, too.) =)

Haha - I'm RIGHT THERE WITH EVERYONE on this sentiment! I've been going nuts trying to get everything done. I've been so busy with work-related stuff, and then health issues in my family that I think I'm not going to be able to make the final push to get everything done until probably 2 days before Acen actually hits.... x_x

Then again...isn't staying up 'till 4am the few nights before (and during) the con part of the artist experience? Isn't it nights like that when people are thinking, "OMG NOT ENOUGH TIME!!!" that some of the best ideas hit?

That being said, personally, I'm totally stoked. I've got cool new pieces this year, and am (hopefully) going to put up a list with some pictures the week before the con.

Hey, just about all of us in AA have a DeviantArt page, right? We should make a club or group - something like Acen's AAs or something like that. Thoughts?

Were excited but SO not ready.
Theres so much more to get ready and we are in the middle of moving and fixing up our new house but at least we will be moved into it fully on the 1st and have 15 full days to work on things. We have done AA stuff in a shorter time so we should be okay lol. We just need a TON of energy drinks..
Our cosplays have had to be cut though which is sad.

I just wanted to revive this thread so I could share how freaking excited I am! Only 3 more days now! We got our cookbooks back from the printer today and my studio-mate assures they look fantastic, so now we're just finishing up a few new prints and buttons for the table. I can't wait to spend some time in the Alley! :heart:

More like who's stressed out!
Final exams + making costumes for myself and some lazy friends + artist table + Organizing large group= DEATH.
I'm still super excited though, hopefully my throbbing headache will go away once I drive 2 1/2 hours in a loud car full of people to the Hyatt. :D

I'm so in the same boat, minus the long drive... *sigh* I don't like time crunches and I certainly don't appreciate the conflicting schedule of school with ACen.
