I know, it’s a pretty lousy update blog if it’s literally been over two months since the last update, but we’ll make up for it. It’s just been busy at Fancy Tuna. Peter’s been on the wrong side of tired with long hours at the office, Brit’s in full swing with her new position and things have been crazy stupid with where I’m working lately. The plus side is that all this time at work has provided Peter and I a new appreciation for Cons and the respite they offer, despite the hard work that goes behind them.
This last ConBravo that took place a couple of weeks ago is a fine example. As always, ConBravo was a success. Peter and I worked hard everyday. We monitored our station, mingled with the fans and sold books like madmen. Even though it was hard work, we loved every minute of it. It took me a few days after it was all over to realize why. As much as Peter, Brit and myself enjoy our day jobs, we genuinely love building Fancy Tuna. We enjoy creating something that is all ours and giving it away as a gift (at set prices for our merchandise, some of which can found in our store). No matter the sibling rivalries between the creators of PPC or the creative differences between the dynamic duo behind Maddy McGee, or the age and cultural differences between all three of the founding members of Fancy Tuna Comics, we all have one defining trait in common; We all thrive on being able to create. Our combined talents, perception and desire to make something out of nothing bring us together and create a team almost as powerful as the Avengers… Okay maybe not quite, but we all live in a mansion in Queens just like them (that’s a lie too).
Fancy Tuna has made it a point to attend more conventions in 2016. We plan on making a triumphant return to Fan Expo come August 2016, we’re also applying to MagFest, Anime North, TCAF and Toronto Wizard Comic Con and as always, our home convention, ConBravo. I know we’ve said this in the past, but seeing how much we enjoy the cons, it’s a sure bet we’ll be appearing at more than one con come 2016. Besides, the more we attend, the more likely we’ll pull The elusive Brit Baker out into the wild… (She’s also a regular con-goer at Comic Con Prime in San Diego, so it’s hard to get her to wake up post prime)
Until next time and hopefully it’ll be a lot shorter than two months until our next update!
