SunnyCon Anime Expo 2017!

15th June 2017

We’ll be returning to SunnyCon Anime Expo once again on 16th – 18th June at St James Park, Newcastle Upon Tyne!

As always you’ll be able to find us in the Artist Alley along with a ton of other amazing artists with stacks of comics, art prints, and more. SunnyCon Anime Expo is the rebranded bigger and better form of our favourite local convention. We’ve exhibited at SunnyCon from their very first show back in 2012 and it’s always an amazing weekend and the origin of our butt sketches! The show itself is filled with artists, geeky merch stalls, retro gaming, contests, cosplay, talks & panels, and Japanese culture. This years guests include Pokemon’s Jesse and James (Team Rocket), and Bryce Papenbrook (Attack on Titan/Sword Art Online/Miraculous Ladybug).

For V.I.P. attendees you’ll be receiving an art book featuring artwork from angelKat and a whole host of other artists – this years theme was humanised/gijinka versions of local landmarks which was a lot of fun to work on – I hope that you all enjoy the art too!

Where To Find Us

Check out the “How To Find Us” map below, and be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram as I’ll be posting updates on both of those during the run up to the show and during the show itself including cosplayer photos, tweeting about silly con happenings, recommendations on stalls to visit, geeking out over the bits of the show we get to see from behind our table, and perhaps some convention exclusive deals for our followers!

For those who can’t make it to the show, we’ll (hopefully) be recording some videos of the weekend for our new YouTube channel to share with you too.

In the run up to the show I am taking commission pre-orders to be picked up at SunnyCon with a discount available – check out the image below for more info. The cut off point for these will be Sunday 11th June, after that I can’t guarantee that the art will be ready in time before the show. This is simply because the week of the convention itself Mon-Thurs is a mad dash of last minute preparations, and stressing over whether we’ve forgotten anything.
