At this stage of the game it's good to get out to conventions and the like to help spread the word about your work. This isn't a natural thing for me either. I'm really in my element when I'm basically alone writing or drawing, but going to great events like the annual Orlando Family Expo, or speaking at Libraries, or schools is too important to neglect.
One thing that most people (including myself) are usually very interested in, is seeing an artist actually draw their characters right then and there. Even if the end result is a foregone conclusion, just seeing how they go about it is always fascinating. And so, I did a fair amount of that (on a poster-sized scale) over this last weekend.
