The Anime Central Trinity Selfie Challenge

Photo: What a Selfie with Trae looks like

Trae is going to be at Anime Central this weekend, and as we mentioned on the podcast we’re giving you guys a challenge.

Which we’re calling the “Anime Central Trinity Selfie Challenge” for no good reason.

You see, our challenge to you, the Nerd & Tie fans who might be going to Acen, is to get a selfie with three specific individuals: Trae (duh), Bal Flanagan (of Balnibarbi Illustration) and Gen Prock (of Ocelotdude Designs).

All three of these people will be in the Artist Alley, and here’s a handy map of the area:


Here are the basic rules of the challenge:

  1. You must ask permission before taking any photo. Photos taken without the person’s permission are automatically disqualified
  2. The selfies must be taken at the respective people’s artist tables

Upon completion, email the three selfies to with the subject “Anime Central Trinity.” In the body of the email, include your name.

We don’t expect anyone to bother doing this, but if you do, we will post your selfies to the website to share with the world. Also, one lucky participant will be given a random item pulled out of “The leftover RisingStuff stock” (a defunct vendor I used to work for). It could be an Engrish T-shirt. It could be a handful of Wonderswan games.

You never know.

Trae Dorn

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
