Being home during the coronavirus gave me a chance to finally look through some old photos. I've been quite nostalgic since being forced to stop working. This one was taken back in 2013, we're about to setup for Ottawa Comiccon.

In the last 12 years of our brand being around, we setup a booth at almost 150 events across Canada, the USA, and Europe. Every single time I would lug around all these boxes, sometimes even tables, and chairs. Although I don't miss the back breaking work, we do miss seeing all of you.

It's crazy to think that it's been 35 days since we stopped all our activities and self-quarantined. It's the longest we've ever stopped shipping out orders. The first 20-something days I kind of went into a mild depression/exhaustion from being so over worked all these years. But inspiration has been quickly coming back, and we are currently working on some fun new projects that will be ready for you when all of this hopefully is over :)
