Hey folks! I can finally come up for air here!
And what better opportunity to dip my feet in the crazy waters of Artist Alley-dom than at Fanime a few weeks back!
In all – I had a blast. I definitely had so much fun engaging with folks who stopped by to talk about things we love to geek over as well as the stuff I was selling. My friend and fellow artist who I shared the table with, not only is she amazingly talented, but she was a ton of fun to hang out with. It was particularly cool to watch her work on commissions – her work is awesome! Though it was her second Fanime, it was a learning experience for both of us. We DEFINITELY want to do this again next year.
I’ve also learned a lot from the fellow artists from neighboring tables – tips on what’s best to sell, best ways to make items, and how to make your table look super cool. We’re going to up our game, for sure!
Who knows – I may find myself at another Artist Alley table sooner than next year. Now…to start churning out some buttons…
If you’re interested in what I’ve sold at Fanime- I’ve put together a few cute packages of sketch card prints and stickers on my Etsy. Come by and check them out!
