Are you bothered?

When one works for themselves, you look to those who came before you.

There are lots of artists that offer us inspiration.

The ones who succeed, we take what they have learned and try to apply those lessons to what we are doing. The ones who aren’t, well, we take that experience and tuck it away to remember and also remember a good idea, poorly done, is just as bad.

There is so much to juggle. Not only making the art you want to sell, but also the booking of shows, the advertising, marketing, promotions, blogging, emails, etc.

We’ve been doing this full time for about two years now. We’re still trying to get a schedule and routine down.

It’s not an easy thing.

The show part, we’ve got down pat. The rest of it, well, we have a few hang ups.

First of which is the mentality of “Oh, I don’t want to bother people with that post, photo, email…”

We also realize if we want to succeed at an online business as well as an in person one, we have to get over that.

Our customers have to know where we’re going to be and what new things we’re doing. We have to keep them interested so they will come to us.

We’re learning that is where advertising and marketing come in.

My rational mind knows this. The not so rational part…not so much.

I see other maker run businesses that we follow; I wait (sometimes not so patiently) for their next FB post, or to see the newest thing they’re working on via an IG post. Or, during the morning email check, I see the new sculpture, photo, painting, doodle, or whatever and damn it, I’m so happy to see it!

Then I think, maybe other people might be doing the same thing I am and are eagerly awaiting the new WeeGonza Bazaar post. It could happen.

Good wishes, much love, much happiness, and look for us much, much more.

Getting it together

It’s been an interesting couple of months. We have had a lot going on personally as well as professionally. We’ve been R&D-ing our parts off to come up with some new designs both for jewelry and props. It’s amazing how much you learn just from one show to the next. We’d like to thank all of the people who came to see us at Phoenix Fan Fest and Keen Halloween! Both were fantastic conventions and we not only got to see some old friends, but made new ones!

Speaking of shows, our next show is Tucson Comic-con! We’re really looking forward to it, as it’s our home town show. It’s going to be much bigger this year, and we also have some media guests, which is a first for TCC. Kind of excited to meet Marina Sirtis, that is if I can get up the cojones to speak to her. 🙂 I dunno, we’ll see.

We’ll be in Crafter’s Alley, right in between Cosplay and Author’s Alley, tables C-7/8.

We are also starting to lay out our schedule for next year. We’re adding some street festivals and art fairs in addition to the Conventions. Come February, we’re looking to do the Two Rivers Renaissance Festival. That should be a gas! Wild Wild West Con,  Westercon70, Phoenix Comicon, and Boston Comic-con are on the list of conventions so far. We’re also looking at events in Southern California, New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada. Basically, anywhere we can drive to reasonably in a day.

Stay tuned!
