Sorry for the absence guys! I've been down in Plymouth having a killer weekend and selling art at DevCon!
My table at conventions is always growing and evolving, and I'm still learning how best to present everything! The trouble is, I have so much stuff I can hardly fit it all in a 6ft table now, so it's turning into a little bit of a headache! At DevCon I didn't even hang out any larger A3 sized prints, but it was the first time I had the chance to sell my necklaces and accessories properly. I was so excited to find I'd been given an extra little side table, so that was perfect to use for the 'stuff' while the main table held all my art. I think I'm going to have to start using folders to display more prints, which is something I've always wanted to avoid (I prefer people to be able to glance across and see everything in one go), but I'd rather a folder than just not display the art at all.
DevCon is a nice little convention, with a friendly attitude. It sort of feels like a mix between a toy fair and a comic convention, with lots of dealers geared towards nostalgia and second hand merchandise over the traditional anime/modern popular culture dealers found at a lot of cons. The meet and greets were free, which was a nice plus, but there weren't any panels or scheduled events to my knowledge, not even a cosplay masquerade, which was a shame given the number of great costumes I saw there.
This weekend is Bristol Comic Expo, so I don't get much time to prep between cons this time! Eep!
