Why I Can’t Stand Dutch Conventions (part 2)

Featuring: Tze

Here’s something else that really annoys me at Dutch comic conventions…this is a scene I’d regularly end up in, though the actual quotes (save the last panel :p) are taken from an entrance exam at an art school…it’s sad.

    My mother called my cousin’s furry art “anime.”
    It took only 15 minutes to explain the differences between anthropomorphism, manga, and anime before she understood.

    At least she didn’t know the stereotypes normally associated with any of those.

      Eep! Just imagine if someone’s first impression of anime was adult furry fanfiction. Destructive opinion formed! I’m glad you could enlighten your mum. ;)

    ooo, half-knowledge is a dangerous thing ! :)
    i do hope you met some other good people at the comic con, to make up for such ones!

      Not a lot, the nice ones to encounter were usually fellow artists and collectors. The convention in Belgium’s fun though, I’ve met a lot of people there who just… like comics. *GASP* :)

    I love it when people talk about something they don’t know anything about with a sense of authority. NOT. Honestly, why do these people come to conventions in the first place? To harass artists? Blargh.Honestly, why do these people come to conventions in the first place? To harass artists? Blargh.

      Those people go to conventions to have something to do on weekends, it’s usually the parents with kids and their grandparents. They’re the “Oh look, that’s pretty! They can draw well can’t they? Moving on…”-people. Kind of like encountering an elementary school teacher after having doodled something as a kid. :)
