I totally had this dream last night where I asked you guys on DA what conventions you would suggest going to, and then I woke up and was all 'GOSH SO WEIRD' and once I had breakfast and coffee I started realizing this wasn't a bad idea.

Gee golly, thanks subconscious!!

Anyhow, I have a few cons already lined up in my mind, but I also wanted to expand my horizons and not just repeat the ones I did last year (plus I like seeing new places!). I am going to try to pick my cons very carefully and make a smart schedule this year (meaning err, 2011!) as last year I ended up doing everything last minute and being weirded out and sick the entire time (which sucked). So planning ahead for me this year!

What cons would you suggest? I am kind of looking for conventions in these regions (but am also open to anything):

Seattle, Chicago, New York <<(really need a con in New York cos of a friend, so help me out here! <33)

I know people have mentioned it several times that they'd like me to go to a con in Canada and England (you guys are so sweet!) and boy WOULD I LOVE TO but I am not sure next year I'll have the finances to do that, but we'll see! I imagine Canada is much easier to manage than England (though overseas, nnghhh sounds so lovely!) Life is surprising sometimes! Never know where you are in a year from now.

I still don't know how many cons I am going to. Five was pretty rough on me this year, but probably with some better planning I can avoid the mega-stress I put upon myself. Plus, I was practically a con virgin last year so I was constantly bewildered. Now I have some experience under my belt! But I realized that when I try to look up cons I don't even know what they're like and there's like a CON EVERYDAY SOMEWHERE, so I figured you guys know the convention scene better than me.

I mean, you have to. I don't know it at all! Thanks so much in advance for your help!!

I hope you're going strong, Tessa.

You know what would be so cool? If Tessa went on here, not even thinking about HINABN or her other comics. She reads all the comments about how much we miss her, and she realizes how much fun she had writing comics. On the front of Buzz!, she said something about going back to writing and drawing, which is what she wants to do more. That could mean she's working on a book, but I just really want her to see these words. We miss you.

Tessa's been gone long enough for me to miss her comic, write up a script for my own, have it beta read, design the characters and begin production, all because of her inspiration! Take that creative energy, guys, and make something amazing!

If you want to check out my webcomic, here's the link:

Hey what do you guys think Vert is going to do when she comes back? 
a) she'll come back  and say that she's been working on the rest of HINABN this whole time and come out with a whole book of the rest of the HINABN series!! 8D
b) she'll announce that HINABN WILL continue and she'll post the next pages!! C:
c) she'll announce that HINABN will not continue :'(
d) she'll say that HINABN won't continue but she'll start a new comic?

Do you think she'll explain why she has been inactive for 3 years? I totally understand that she has the right to not continue HINABN if she doesn't want to and that she doesn't owe us an explanation though. I'm just so worried about her :( I hope she hasn't been depressed this whole time over the struggles she's had with the comic and just hasn't had the heart to continue it. But if she is then I just know that she will gain the strength to come back to HINABN or at least just posting amazing art! She seemed so happy and excited about Hanna, I just know that that inner flame can't go away so easily :(

She has drawn for a comic called "Buzz!" and it's super neat however, 4DE legally ripped HinaBN from her hands and she can no longer work on it due to legal reasons. That's why she's not around.

hey man this is totally random and a lil late, would you care to elaborate on this, either on here or over notes? i devoted way too much of my life to hinabn to not ever figure out what happened to tessa or the comic.
PrismPlague Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2014   Digital Artist
At this point I've wasted my breath, basically 4DE is a gross little company hellbent on taking artists' rights away if they don't read their contracts. But yeah-- Hinabn won't come back until she can legally wrestle out of the cold dead fingers of that company or they somehow work something out. All of which is not happening. Sorry you devoted time :\
