Two years ago we embarked upon a journey to support amateur artists. We built creatabu.com as a place for artists to share their art and get constructive feedback. After spending some time with fan art, comic, and anime artists, and their art on our site, we really came to understand the unique needs of our amazing community. And so Concon App was born.
By connecting with artists at many conventions, we found that one of the biggest struggles was figuring out the right conventions to attend and then planning for them. This process includes general research, looking for an affordable price range for artist alley booths, commutable distance, ability to secure the artist alley spot, etc... Creating art is not easy and managing convention planning definitely took time away from creating art. That is why we created Concon app, a anime/comic convention app that helps artist, vendors, and fans to discover conventions of interest to them.
