I just got through my second ever Artist Alley at an anime convention. It was a great experience. The first one, which was February 2013, not so great.
It was a free-to-enter convention located in a shopping mall and was a combination of the local anime, TCG, and video game business owners. Their combined crowds resulted in a HUGE turnout for being a small name convention. I was given the featured artist table, meaning my table was right at the main intersection of the mall, facing the entrance. Even better, all the dance competitions and cosplay contests were taking place smack in front of my table, so everyone at least saw what I had to offer.
I was stationed next to a local graphic designer, who was also new to the artist alley. I'm glad we both lacked experience, as I think it helped us relate to each other's situations and feelings better. I did run into a weird problem where people didn't think I actually created my images, and that I was just vending generic posters. I had to, on multiple occasions, direct them to my YouTube Channel to show I made them.
Highlight of the day: a man came up to me and gave me a cash tip simply because he liked my work. He didn't even buy anything, as he was in a rush and just passing through the mall. He shook my hand, said "Good job." and went on his way. SERIOUSLY? What a great feeling. I was really only expecting to break even, given the con was smaller, but I came out of the hole and then some.
I'm very grateful for all the positive response and helpful tips from everyone, not just the artists. And on top of all the great contacts, sales (aka $), and lessons I learned, it was just a lot of fun. I'm a fan of this, and I'm going to make this a regular part of my life. Travel, draw, meet people who actually like the same thing as I do, and get paid? I'm in.
