I made a concerted effort to hit more conventions in 2015 and work on leveling up my photography skills. I’m happy to say that it looks like I half way know what I’m doing with a camera. I attended the usual mainstays like Wondercon and San Diego Comic-Con, along with first time attendance of Star Wars Celebration and C4: Central Coast Comic-Con. I also hit Long Beach Comic Con and Comikaze Expo for multiple days for the first time.
My new year’s resolution for 2016 is to try and go to at least one con a month. I’ve already pencilled in Anime Impulse, Long Beach Comic Expo, Wondercon, SDCC, Long Beach Comic Con, and Comikaze Expo to the schedule. Phoenix Comic Con, San Francisco Comic Con, Heroes & Villains Fan Fest, and SD Comic Fest are strong possibilities. What I’m really looking forward to is Nerd Con, which made its debut in Escondido this past August. Their 2nd effort promises to be even bigger and I’m thankful for another con in my neck of the woods outside of SDCC.
