mindy indy's greatest success yet was this past weekend at the East Village Arts Party! So many people came (like 500 people!) and it was super awesome to meet everyone and share my comics! I made sure to get there early to get a good spot with high visibility, and my table was right when you walked in and it led into the courtyard, where all the bands and performances were playing. It was also great to get people as they walked out too. I'm so glad my energy lasted the whole night! I was pretty exhausted from trying to finish up the sequel to the Misfortune Cookie.
A lot of my friends came too, and since many of them already had the first Misfortune Cookie comic, I wanted to have the next one ready to show them new stuff. I scrambled to get it done in time, and was still drawing it Friday and inking Saturday morning! I didn't think I'd be able to do it, but I was super focused, making sure to put a time limit on filling in the blacks and typing and such on Saturday, and I was able to get The Misfortune Cookie 2 done, printed, and ready to go just moments before people arrived at the show! I'll post the comic later this week.
It was kind of tricky setting up my table this time. I'm usually sitting behind the table, but this time they were all up against a wall. Oh and because it was outside, I had some sheets of plexiglass so all my comics wouldn't fly away. It was pretty effective!
This time I actually sold a lot of Misfortune Cookie Cards! One girl bought a lot for her friend, nicknamed "Miss Fortune." I colored some in her favorite colors.
Notice how I put my sign on the wall instead of the table. I wish I could've printed out a huge poster or something else to put up! Maybe next time.
This guy wanted me to draw on his hand! I loved the randomness! I drew a little fortune cookie.
All in all, the party was a great success and I made like $50 profit! Pretty good for only selling comics for $1 each :) I need to do more events like this where they don't charge for a table!
