So, AniNite 2014!
This convention is very special for me because I prepared Moon and Blood Limited German edition to sell there. It was the first try for me. (for everyone, maybe. Printing books for an event in overseas)
I'd asked a table to sell the books, but they forgot! AniNite was chaos as usual! But it's flexible at the same time, so I got a table on Saturday. Fine!
The first meet with Moon&Blood limited German edition. It's satisfying quality, except for you can see the backside print of the paper.
I asked a table and a crew who took care of me. S-kun, he was a newbie but he could get staff in charge via his mobile, so it's OK. :) I didn't need to think anything about my schedule because he took me the exact place.
Manga workshop. Because I had a lost luggage at Vienna Airport (from Charles de Gaulle airport !), so I had nothing except for some original drawings... ><;; All my drawing tool and printed material were in the lost luggage. (My BERLIN T-shirt is my friend Sajora from Berlin gave me because I tweeted about my trouble)
How to draw hands is always issues.
Talked about storyboard (panel-work) . There was one participant who was eager to know. This is most important part of drawing manga, and very difficult. (hope my talk wasn't boring... )
A guy came from ChibiNeko asked me if I was interested to demonstration with Cintiq (22HD?). I drew Wedding Pewach.... he said 30 min, but it took about 1 hour I finished somehow.
It was different from mine (both the soft and hard)... whey you are in hurry, it's annoyed a bit! ^^;;
...and the English UI ...X(

An autograph session was set from the evening on the day, but I usually stayed my table and signed for who bought my book, so anytime signing, actually...
One for demonstration, one for display (and one for killing time XD) I draw & paint something like these. Happen to I took my coloring set in my cabin luggage. (I bought some line arts and paper in a paper store)
You can give it to people who help you, friends. Nice demonstrations and nice gift, one stone and 2 birds thing, you know! :) In this time, some drawings went to charity.
