Anime Expo 2003 items

These were handed out at the Pioneer USA booth at Anime Expo 2003.

Also given out were playing cards, one of which included the artwork of Rakka curled up used on the fan. She was the Ace of Hearts.

They seemed to like this image, as they also used it on the signing boards that were handed out for ABe and Ueda's autograph sessions.

The big items for AX 2003 were some of the pieces he contributed to the charity auction. Signed doujins of Haibane Renmei and a watercolor of Rakka that went for $6,000. I don't have any pictures of this and don't expect to get any, since pictures were pretty much forbidden during the auction.
