Fanime 2012 Artist Alley Table by LaggyCreations Fanime 2012 Artist Alley Table by LaggyCreations
This was my table setup at the Fanime 2012 Artist Alley. This photo was taken by :icondoctorwhoftw: on Monday, by which time our brains had been officially liquefied.

We had an awesome time, and made a hell of a lot more money than I expected. People were incredibly nice and complimentary, and really seemed to like my work. I was quite happy. Sold tons of prints (Had to restock monday morning) almost all of the buttons, and a bunch of jewelry. Never bringing figurines again, lol. Did not sell many. But still, I'll definitely be doing this again next year, as well as some other cons, including Stockton Con (which apparently exists) and SacAnime winter. I can't do the Fall one, because it happens the same weekend as PAX Prime, which I attend every year with my boyfriend.

Anyway, Fanime was awesome, and everyone there was awesome.

Also, I'll be selling all of the excess product on my Etsy (Mostly jewelry and figurines). I'll post about that once I get them up on the shop.

How many prints did you end up making? I'm having my first art table and Im trying to assess how many of each print I should make. I see how expensive it is now to run one of these things XD; So if you don't mind saying, how many prints did you have of each drawing? What seemed to be a reasonable amount?

I would start with 5-10 prints of each piece, depending on how well you think it will sell. The first convention is definitely pretty much testing the waters.

The first couple times, get your prints done at a chain print shop, like Staples of Office Depot, that way if you do run out of prints you can easily restock at a location nearby.

I was in the same boat when I started, lol. Asking questions is good.

I would go for a chain but my con chair says we can get a deal the more we order at this one print shop. But yeah I might set aside an order for the other print shops so then if I do run out I can have time to run out of the con and get them. I would just order more for backup, but with my income I really think its better to just wait and see how things go first.

Should I get 5-10 of the bigger ones and maybe 20 or so of the smaller ones? Since maybe they will sell out quicker, being cheaper and something people would still like?

All I can say is this is testing the waters and even my productivity level. I just barely started drawing my prints, but with my new job and working toward said job it was a bit of a back burner thing XD; Thanks so much for being so open to questions <3

I'm hoping to sell at SacAnime the winter one too! I missed the opening for the summer one. Their AA is seriously tiny so it fills FAST. Hopefully, moving to the Sac Convention center will give us more of a chance!

I wish I could go to SacAnime Fall, but PAX Prime is probably gonna be the one convention I go to just as an attendee from now on, so I don't wanna miss it, haha. When does registration for the Winter one open? I know it's a little different, like you need your permit before you apply, which is a little odd, but whatever lol. How fast does it usually fill up?

Not sure. I've never signed up to sell at SacAnime... I'm on their mailing list though so I don't miss out (hopefully) so I'll let you know when I hear something. In the past, it's filled up so fast since their AA is TINY - like 20 artists in this one little room. They have definitely outgrown the hotel where they've been. My favorite memory from last year was these two ladies who obviously weren't there for the con, probably had no idea this was going on when they had booked their room and were staring out their sliding window with this shell shocked look on their face at all us cosplayers. They totally had the 'I don't think we're in Kansas any more, Toto' look. I should have taken a pic.

What is PAX Prime? Never heard of that one.

That's hilarious, haha. And yeah, it used to be even tinier. I went to it back when it was still in the Scottish Rite Center, which is insanely tiny. I dressed as Chell from Portal that year, dragging a life sized companion cube along with me on wheels. That was a mistake lol. \

PAX is a huge gaming convention in Washington. There's no artist alley there, just vendors, and gaming companies that come to show off stuff. It's basically like E3, but in Washington. My boyfriend lives near there, so we go there every year together.
