*drum roll and a little dance*

....I'm going State side!

Yes indeed, I have a place in the Artists Alley at New York Comic Con! They hand select the artist and I couldn't believe when my application was accepted! I will be there for all 4 days starting this Thursday. I'm so excited, I've been so busy lately it hasn't had a chance to sink in. It'll be my first time ever going over to the States, I have a couple of days after the convention to myself, so I'll get to explore New York a bit at least. Can anyone recommend things I should do/see there? Especially on the look out for lesser known excitements. It's the furthest I've traveled for a convention, and with outgoings so high I'm really not in this one for the money ;) Apparently half my dA visitors come from the US, and it's been my dream for a long time to go out and meet some of you! I'll do a journal cataloging all the funz when I'm back so you all can enjoy

So who's going to be there? *crosses fingers*

I would be really appreciative if anyone could offer to lend a hand while there... I am literally going to be all on my lonesome, I don't know anyone (yet XD) So it'll be just me to look after the stall the whole time, and I'm sure I could use a hand sometimes, mostly just simple things like grabbing a coffee, but perhaps send me a note if you could do any more dedicated helping :)

Weird question: any DIY shops round NY? Only thing is, for my stall set up, I need poles, I attach them to the table then hang my prints off them. I can't take mine from the UK because they're to long to fit in my suitcase! XD So I need to pick some up in NY. Unless any of you guys have a spare set you could lend me? :P


As for my last journal, I'm sorry I had no time today to reply yet (y'know been busy preparing and all that) but, as ever, you're fantastic. I am literally smiling now thinking about how great you've been. This trip puts into perspective just how lucky I really am.

Right. Artists Alley Table

U9

That's U for unicorn and 9 for 9 lives. Imagine a unicorn with 9 lives; you don't have to imagine it dying 8 times.... that's not in the spirit of the thing... just 9 happy lives. Yeah. Well. ~Come and find my and my unicorn there :dance:

Hey! (: I met you at Comic con this weekend, though you probably don't remember me. My friend, her mom, and I all stayed and chatted with you for a bit about things to do in New York (but got a bit sidetracked and we ended up talking about an organization that gives socks to the homeless in London) and my friend showed you her drawing on her phone. It was awesome to meet you in person; you're incredibly sweet. Hopefully we'll get to see you again next year<3

I saw you at comiccon today - I was with the nice Korean girl who took pictures of pretty much all your art. Her English isn't very good so I wanted to let you know what she told me when we walked away: "Her art really stands out to me. It's so beautiful... there's so much emotion in it."

(I had no idea this was your first time across the pond! I hope you enjoyed yourself, and I hope you sold a lot and didn't get too tired! : D )

Hello Alce. My name is John. I had met you yesterday (Friday) when my daughter Loren and I stopped by your booth at NYCC. We were both very much taken away by your work. I told you that your work inspired me. I didn't mean artistically but rather spiritually. You see, I don't really have all that much to look forward to when I wake up for the day. I work way to much and I don't share my life with anyone. I now look forward to waking up to the lovely purchases that I made at your booth. They make me smile and gives my heart a jolt inside. When Loren told me she wished she could buy all of your works she wasn't kidding. And I feel the same way. I hope that the next time we meet I and Loren will be in a better position to further increase our collections of your art.

I really hope you don't mind my saying this on a personal note I was very much taken away by your stunning personality. I wished that I could have spent more time talking to you, but you were working after all, my feet were absolutely killing me and I WAS there for Loren after all.

I wish you the best of luck while your here. And we will miss you when you go back to London. I'll keep checking your posts to see when you might be back. I would love to be a sponsor.

Much love,
John

Hi DestinyBlue,

This is my first time to leave a comment for an artist on deviantART! How I found you is by looking through Artist Alley Gallery because NYCC is my second time to attend a con. Just fell in love with your work of Last Piece! So I came to your journal and I feel bad that I have to work on Sunday because I don't mind give you a tour around Manhattan! I work near Times Square though I live in NJ. I look forward to seeing more of your work on this Saturday! Perhaps I could give you a helping hand at your table if no one has not yet get in touch with you.

Cheers,
CN

Holy shit, that's absolutely incredible! Wish I could go.
Oh well, I won't be able to go because I am poor, but best of luck. :)
If you feel down or worried at any point during the trip, just remember that somewhere in Ireland there is a 16 year-old boy who will die if you don't do your best.
THINK OF THE 16 YEAR-OLD IRISH BOYS, ALICE.

But yeah, all joking aside, have an awesome time. I'll be enviously rooting for you. ;)

in times square some streets are actually turned into side walks because of how many people there and most of the time that is where all the street performers are, such as the naked cowboy(not really naked)
hope you have a great time:)

For PVC poles or any extra setup you need, there is a Home Depot on 23rd street in Manhattan, and Blicks' and Michael's Art stores scattered all throughout the city. If you have a smart phone with internet access that works in the US, you can use that to find the nearest location of the an art store.

Ah thanks so much :heart:
Yeah I've been googling Harware shops trying to find one that looks like it might do poles XD But yeah, that home Depo looks great, so big it must have something I can use!
Really appreciate the help :)

Just a short drive from where I USED to live... Groovy stuff, though. There's so much to do in NYC that the only trouble you should have is deciding what to do next. The Statue of Liberty is a must, especially since this is your first time to America. There's also a pretty big art museum there, which would definitely be worth the visit, given the nature of your trip. Ground Zero, as everybody has been saying, is well worth it (I don't know if the attack was in the UK media, but I sure remember that day). Personally, though, I would spend a lot of free time in the library (it's pretty massive), but that's just me. Anyway, I hope you stay here is unforgettable. Cheers...
