Animix 09 Bookmarks by neilak20 Animix 09 Bookmarks by neilak20
Bookmarks made for Animix 09 this weekend! I made these puppies today! (hooray waiting till the last minute!)

I have 6 of the small keychain type bookmarks and 20 of the full sized with tassels. I have the material to make 36 of the large ones, but am not sure if I should, as I'm not sure there will be THAT much interest. Last year I had about 20 or give or take bookmarks of Hal and Pauper (i have 4 left of each, that's after I gave a considerable number away as gifts. ) which likely didn't sell because they were Original characters.

Anyway these feature the character art of [link] the convention Tshirt, my odd redesign of :iconasianeyes442: 's Kei.

The printing turned out real nice, and the lamination machine I got works great.

If anyone's interested in these and isn't able to make it to the con, send me a note!

Me too! I have moved since then (Like two hours away) But it would be worth the trip. Although it's a small con, it's very fun. :P

It did? D: that really does stink then... And there isn't any info about it on the website still. TnT

Yea, I liked that it was close, all the conventions are usually in Dallas, Corpus, San Antonio or Austin, all much farther than Killeen ono

Yeah. ;___; Sigh. I'm half-tempted to contact them and ask them if they ever plan to reopen it.

Or maybe they didn't sell well because gamers don't read.and anime fans read manga which can be read in about an hour

Nice design though. I hope they sell well.

I think it was cause it was my characters and no one knew who they were. Gamers read...I think.

Trust me, I'm a gamer and an Otaku. No reading.

Oh my! How can you Read this?! What about those little booklets that come with games? Do subtitles count? >_>

I meant we don't read books. WE can still read we just never read anything that requires a bookmark. books scare us and no, we don't read the little booklets that come with the game. yet for some reason we all take them out of the case because I've never gotten a used game that had the booklet included

<_< you can use the bookmarks as small coasters?

I would use them as art. I think that they are beautiful very well designed.

I was just speculating as to why bookmarks didn't sell well. It's just that, in my experience, people would rather have a button or shirt than a bookmark.

lulz but rpg gamers have to do a lot of reading... I mean, at least for my generation and older... because rpgs nowadays can rely on voice overs XD same applies for dubbed anime!

but I read a lot of manga and don't play that much video games :x

I mean books. I've never needed a bookmark to play .hack or Final Fantasy, or to watch the new K-on! or Haruhi episodes. And I've never really needed a bookmark for a manga either.

Then again, I guess the decrease in reading is effecting everyone. Not just gamers or otaku.
