Last weekend, I went to Popcon asia 2013 for 3 days. This is an event dedicated for pop art culture held in JCC Jakarta, and was filled with popular artists from around the world like Mr. Kim Jung Gi and Mr. Kunkka.
This year event was larger than last year’s, with higher quality guests and merchandises.
There are many talented young artists from Indonesia, and my friends here also participated:
They sell posters, pins and their own artbooks.
Those are some badass drawings by the way… damn man, this event was filled with lots of badass artists whowill put your drawing skill to shame. lol.
One of my favorite creation in the event was probably this company who displayed some really realistic figurines I’d hope I can just steal the things.
If you’re hungry and don’t want to spend 70k rupiah on the most expensive nasi goreng you’ll ever seen in your life at the cafe outside the event, you can eat this popular chicken gyoza for 20k per 5 pieces
anyway, I was at POPCON for the Japanese Station booth with Switch
Switch is a part of Japanese Station navigator, they are 5 girls who will navigate your life to a better otaku path, lol.
Here at POPCON, they sell their first merchandises for the first time.
if you buy their photos, they sign the photos for you!
If you buy the Switch packs, which contains a T-shirt, photos, and a sticker, you can get a polaroid shot with one of the member.
I took some shots of the members, they’re kind enough to give their time to pose with me:
They’re cute aren’t they? I will keep the rest of the photos for private collections *ufufufufufu*
in the end of the event, they held an auction, and guest what, Kim Jung Gi’s drawing was sold for 5000USD
Overall, the event was fun, looking at those awesome artist made us remember we’re nothing but shitty kids with crayon in front of them.
