Del Borovic is our resident orange-loving professional freelance illustrator and comic artist friend. She is a 2008 graduate of Savannah College of Art & Design with a BFA in Sequential Art. Del has been a freelance artist for over eight years, specializing in digital artwork. Her true love is comics, and creating emotional, character-driven works. Between working she makes time for personal creative projects including original stories, graphic novels and ongoing character pieces. She can be found cosplaying along with her girlfriend Lindsey (Check out Delsey Cosplay. Trust me on this.) and attending conventions. Her comic work has been featured in the webcomic Midnight Tea Party, Afterlife's Dying to Tell collection, and The Uniques Tales to name a few. Her illustrations have appeared in many publications including Fantasy Flight Games' "Android: Netrunner" Card Game, the Oz Collectible Card Game, the covers of Kyt Dotson's Vex Harrow series, and as guest art in many comic anthologies. Con goers to Otakon might be familiar with her work, as she has done art featuring their mascot for their programs.. and helped draw our own Nyan-chan as the Magical Girl for this year's theme! You can also check out one of her latest works of art and character designs which is part of Inkhorn Games' Order Of Ancients, which is now on Kickstarter! She is always available for freelance comics and illustrations and continues to work on new projects.

Ever felt like you're not quite who you're supposed to be? Find yourself having in-depth talks with animals, feeling like you're supposed to be a hero, or piloting giant mechs? Well you'll LOVE NyanCon's theme this year.
The official theme of NyanCon 2015 is: Transform!
Magical Girls, Super Sentai, Masked Heroes, and giant robots. If it transforms, it's part of the theme!
Since NyanCon began, we've always encouraged everyone to truly be themselves, and we hope that this year's theme will bring out the hero (or villain!) inside of you! We can't wait to see what you'll do with this year's theme, and we'll be opening panel submissions very soon!

We said that last year and we just had to say it again. You guys are amazing. We were hoping we would be turning into something big, and based off of those crowded hallways I'd say we certainly are. NyanCon will keep growing and moving into bigger parts of the school so we can provide you with even more entertainment and fun to be had. Caturday is going to keep getting bigger, and it's all thanks to you!
We want to formally thank:
- Lakeland Community College for being an awesome place to learn, grow and socialize (and man do they love their geeks),
- The Student Activities Department for guiding and leading us,
- All of our sponsors for helping us give back to the community,
- Our talented guests who donated their time and passion to inspire us,
- Our panelists for letting us appreciate and celebrate our interests,
- The Anime Anonymous, Gamer's Guild, Lake Effect Radio, and Lakeland Student Government volunteers who put on the best event our little anime club could ever imagine, and
- The attendees who came out 1000+ strong to celebrate a day of fandom, fun and community in a way this school has never seen before. A convention is just empty rooms without people, YOU made it into the Best. Caturday. Ever.
Thank you again from our fluffy little hearts, we love you!
NyanCon is a one-day, free anime and pop culture convention in Northeast Ohio sponsored by Anime Anonymous of Lakeland Community College. All fandoms are welcome at the best Caturday ever!
