New York Comic Con

So I'm a little late, but I just wanted to drop a line and say thank you to everyone who came by to visit my booth at New York Comic Con last weekend. It was my first time participating in a con's Artist Alley and it was a great experience, getting to meet so many new people, meeting up with old friends and presenting my art in such an exciting venue. Business wise, it was pretty successful too. I didn't leave filthy rich, but I did better than I had ever hoped to expect.
A word to other artists: don't wait until you feel 'worthy' to try out a table at a Con. When you have a large enough body of work (let's say 10 pieces) and the resources to commit to having a booth at an Artist's Alley, go for it. I spent roughly $700 in total, if that helps. But the experience is so worth it. You'll learn a lot of how people respond to your work, to you and you'll learn just a little bit more about yourself.

Hi Piya, sounds like you had a great experience! I can't agree with you more. Had same experience at Ape-Con. It does take quite some time to prep and print. But always worth it in the end. Your table looks awesome! Filled to the brim!
