Artist Alley Information -- 2011
« on: October 23, 2010, 08:16:15 PM »
Greetings all!

I am excited to be returning for another year as your Artist Alley Manager. I just wanted to let you all know that I will be working out the details for Artist Alley. Once I have these details hammered out, you will be the first to know. Expect to see an update early in 2011 and hopefully have applications ready not long after that.

So stay tuned and watch this thread.

Greetings!

This past September was my first Kumoricon (my husband is the big anime fan in our household), and one of the highlights for me was visiting the artists' alley, where I met some really talented people, bought some art, and had some great chats. I'm an artist too, and would be interested in participating this coming year; I understand potential artists' alley participants should wait to register for the con? Anyway, we're pretty sure we're going to attend next year (and we like the move to Vancouver, WA; my only complaint about this year's con was the abysmal wait for registration! Other than that I had a great time, as did my husband, and at least he had his camera with him in line, so got some wonderful cosplay photos.)

So I would appreciate getting updates when they're out, because I would like to be an artist in the alley next year! ;D

Thanks!

Is there an e-mail list to be sent out once registration is open?
Or any estimate as to which month it may be open?

Last year we missed sign ups by a few hours and wanted to get a jump on things and hopefully get a table this year.

Please and thank you

Just so everyone knows, there will not be an email list year. There will be changes in how people apply and get into the Artist Alley this year. Details will be posted when I have the applications ready. There will be announcements on the website, in the forum and on Facebook.

Do you know how many tables will be available this yr? Also if an artist has their own free standing displays, are they welcomed to be use in addition to the table (permitted there is room)?

Yay! I'm really excited for the artist alley- my friends and I are planning to have a table this year. It'll be my first time, so I'm a little worried about the application process.

I just have to watch this thread and I'm sure everything will be fine! :D

Well, assuming you've been to a con before, you know that place where there or those people selling prints and commissions? That's Artist's Alley. :3

Is there any estimate to what month registration will go up? (At least, will it happen before Sakuracon?)

 I have some money set aside for the table, but I'm really wanting to use it on something else right now, I'm just afraid that reg will suddenly start and I won't be able to pay for my slot...

By chance do we have an idea as to what month info on AA registration will be up?
It's very hard for me to log in and check all the time.

At this point right now, registration will open up after Sakuracon. The process in which you can get a table will be changing so it is less about being the first artists applying to get a table. There will be more details posted as everything gets finalized.

Also you are not only allowed to have displays, but encouraged to have and use them. The spaces this will be considerably smaller then in past two years.

For the past 2 years, they have been 10x10 booths with (1) 8 ft table.

Will the AA be curated this year? I kind of like the idea, what with Stumptown also switching to a curating system.

If it is being curated, can we have some ideas about what you will be looking for?

Oh boy, this worries me. I like the first come first served basis most AA's go by. I wish you luck in putting together your method in which how applicants will be chosen.

That's great t hear about displays. I have been working on a few things to utilize table space and my surrounding when I do get to sell at some AAs. I have more questions, but I wont get ahead of myself, just in-case I don't make it in.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions here in this thread.

Lol, totally feeling the same as you guys! The count down staaarts, as we're the cool-peeps who's all like, 'no time to Sakuracon, gotta stalk the AA Page/Forums *foams at the mouth or something*' Hahah XD

But hey, as a heads up I'm willing to share a table with someone if I'm able to get one this year ;D Sharing is caring, haha don't mind me and my corniness ;p Just can't wait for the AA news ;p

I can't share my table, though. That's what I mean. If I had room I would, but my friend Kiwi and I are tablemates for sure, assuming we get a table.

Oh, I got that, didn't mean to criticize or anything, was just putting it out there that if I get a table there will be an open space for someone, and if I don't, then I would love to split a table with/appreciate an offer from anyone who is willing to share :D It wasn't @ you, but @everyone in general :)

I think "Stalking" is a trait that anime/gamers/con-goers is a must have no? Hahaha XD **needs to stalk more stuff now before getting withdraws**

But yeeesh, good luck to all of ya~ Hopefully this year the Dealers/AA room will be bigger with more AA booths to offer for us ;3

@Kizxm, duuude, I'm so with ya on stalking the AA forum since nov or dec ish? So we're in the same boat x3 but-umm I'm sorry, I have a horrible memory in a way, as I kinda remember talking to 2 or 3 other AA booths on my side, so were you to the right or left of mine? And as for my main cosplay this year it's gonna be another scandalous 1st gen water pokemon, hehe ;3

Oh, hey, no worries. If I wasn't already sharing a table, I would love to split it with someone. I guess my "stiff competition" comment came out a little more "Grr" than I meant it to (why, yes, I use onomatopoeia in regular conversation).
