Artist Alley 2012 FAQ
« on: April 30, 2012, 11:16:18 am »
Do you have a question? Please check here as it may have already been asked.

I can sell food? If not, can share food with friends and attendees?
No. You are not allowed to sell manufactured or homemade food. You are allowed to have a bowl of Hershey kisses or any other wrapped candy for attendees to enjoy. You are also allowed to share your private food with friends. However, you are not allowed to sell or share hand-made food with attendees. This is a rule that is to protect you, the attendee and the convention. I love that people are learning how to make delicious treats, but the Artists Alley is not a place to have such business.

Am I allowed to have multiple artists selling at one table?
Yes.  You will be given the chance to discuss this in the application form.

Can I sell fan art?
Yes. As long as you composed it by your own hand (no tracing or related activities), you are allowed to sell your own work as long as it does not violate any copyright laws. If there are any infringements, you will be required to remove it.

I produce my own products, is that considered commercial production?
No. Anything that you produce with your own hands (physically or design and sent to a small company to produce for you) is perfect for Artists Alley. However, products produced by a company not owned by you or you did not have any hand in the design is not okay.

Can I display my yaoi/hentai otherwise adult material?
You can have adult material at your table, but it must not be available for minors to see, touch or otherwise experience. You may have a sign stating that you have such materials and once you have checked their ID, they can see it. AA manager will also distribute pin-back buttons that will state "please ask me about my adult material". Anyone found violating this will receive one warning. Repeat offenses will not be tolerated. Please read the contact for further details. If you still have questions, please contact the Artists Alley manager.

What do you mean the Artists Alley is lightly juried? What does this mean?
Many shows, both conventions and otherwise, jury their applicants to some extent. Because there will be more demand then there is space, I wanted to make sure there is a chance for anyone who wants to apply. This will not only allow for me to see all those who are interested in being involved with Kumoricon, but help to make sure that we have return artists present as well as new faces that haven't been with our Artists Alley before.
What does this mean for the artist? This is your chance to put your best foot forward and show me what you got and why you should have a space in this year's Artists Alley.

I want to apply for Artists Alley, but I don't have any current pictures of my work. Should I apply now and send in updated pictures later?
You could, but we would prefer you waited until you have current  photos of your work. Remember, this is NOT a first come-first serve situation. Everyone is given an equal chance to be accepted. Waiting until you have the proper photos of your best work will not be disadvantageous.

Quick question - what does the "lightly juried" mean? Like, do we need to provide you with a portfolio? A description of what we're selling? I assume the term "juried" is meaning that you're trying to weed out crappy artists?

We do require you provide us with examples of what you will be selling at kumoricon, in order to provide a variety of products for the attendees, and to keep the quality of said products up, wether the artist is a professional, novice, or somewhere in between.

Awesome! Gonna fill it out right now. :)

Questions: does one app equal one full table? If we check "planning to share space" does that mean I'm open to sharing, or that I'm responsible for bringing my own partner/tablemate?

Yes, you will get a full table with your app. If you choose to share a table, it is up to you to provide a tablemate. You will need to provide their information and portfolio with your application as well.

Question: Is the Artist Alley going to be located in the same place as last year, with the same setting? As in, that small space in the Red Lion packed with tables?

If it's in the same spot/size as last year I probably won't apply.

The location has been changed. Artists Alley is going to be where the venders hall was last year; in the separated building.

Do you think we could get a map of where the artist alley and vendor halls are in comparison to the overall hotel layout? I haven't exhibited at Kumori Con since 2010 when it was in Portland. :< Additional info would be helpful in my decision between artist alley or exhibitor.

Here are comparative photos of the layout JUST at the Red Lion. Don't forget that the panel and main event programming will be at the Hilton, which is only a couple blocks away.

This is only what they mentioned at the staff meeting in April. This may not be 100% set, but assume that this is how things will be set up.

Some Questions about artist Alley
« Reply #11 on: May 03, 2012, 03:34:40 pm »
Hello!

I have a couple questions as I *letshope* potential Artist:

) Is there a minimum age for Artist Alley?
If so, to sell art would we need a guardian or just a guardian sign ?

) To Veteran Artists:
How do you calculate tax into your merch?
Do you roll it into the cost somehow?

How big do you make a file when you draw?
Do you honestly draw on a huge canvas (about 2000 px times 3000 px),
or is drawing smaller and sizing okay?

and also, any tips in manning a table/ tips in general? (Really, ANYTHING will help @3@ )

Thank you so much!

I think calculating tax could get overly complex really quickly and time consuming with all the change making. It's easier to charge a round number up front and then subtract the tax rate from your final sales total. So if I sell a print for 10$ at the show, I subtract .90 cents for tax after the show. My total is 9.10. Also, if you make under 600$, I don't think it's necessary to report taxes of any sort the government allows that much free of taxes or bother to report them.

You should make your digital file as big as any print you'd want to make of it. Some upsizing can be successful, but results vary. I think 300dpi 11x17 inches is a minimum size for success. Go bigger if you can, like 600dpi 11x17inches.

I had a few questions if anyone can answer that would be great QvQ;;

I also wanted to know if there's an age minimum to sign up?

If you get a table can the artist badge be used as a regular badge? (like for wondering around before and after the artist alley hours)

Do we need a seller's permit to sell?

For the name of artist part of the application can we use a pen name instead of our real name or is that for the business name the place to be putting pen names?

Thanks in advance;;

There it's no age limit, but minors must have an adult with them at all times.

Your artists alley badge acts as an attendance badge for the con as well.

You do not need a permit to sell your work.

Please use your real name on the application, as that is what is going to be on your badge and will be used to identify you for safety reasons. You may put your pen name in the business name.

Ah poop, I didn't check until now to see if they were open yet. I'm a few weeks late so I hope that's not going to completely screw us over! D:

There are a couple of things that we may or may not be making over the summer (as we don't have the money or the materials for them at this immediate moment in time), so I don't exactly have pictures covering all of what we're planning to sell. I've been so busy finishing up high school that I haven't had that much time to prepare for prints and plushies and stuff so I hope that won't interfere with the application process.

  • Should I just explain what we're selling in the "Description of  table setup" box, in the "other" box, or in the "Subject of art" box?
  • Is the solid deadline June 1st to get the form in?
  • Also, about the tax stuff, we live in Oregon and don't have sales tax so I'm not sure how it works out. If we're only going to be selling at the con, and since we don't live in Washington, do we still have to pay tax? I don't really understand that type of stuff x_x
  • And what does "small press" refer to? I feel silly for asking XD;;

Provide photos of what you and your table mate already have on hand, and in the Subject of Art box, explain that you have unfinished work that you wish to sell, and explain what that work is.

Yes, the deadline is June 1st. W will not accept any applications after that.

You do not have to pay sales taxes. You add the tax to the prices of the items, but it I'd easier to subtract the tax from your regular prices. Unless you have high priced items, doing that won't be an issue in any way.

Small press just refers to publishing companies that make less than a certain amount each year. Unless you have a licensed company, you don't have to worry about that.

Music, most likely not. You'll have takes right next to you on both sides, and the music may disturb them. The lights, possibly, as long as they are self-contained and not too flashy. We can discuss it during setup, if you are approved.

We would prefer a photo of the finished product. If you only have one or two pieces that are finished, please provide photos of those first Anne foremost. If there are other pieces you want to show us, but aren't finished you may provide a photo of them. But please have at least one photo of finished products.

I have a question:
I says that we're provided with 2 passes and the table + chairs.
Is it possible for us to use 1 pass for ourselves and use the other pass for a discount on the table?
I will be the only artist at the table and I'm pretty consolidated on my table display, but I didn't see an option for a half-table.

Thanks in advance!

You could probably reserve the table for yourself now and then later "sell" half your table to another party. This happens all the time for other cons at least.

(I'm so sorry for the late response. I could've SWORN I posted a response already to this!!)

We would prefer if you did not do this, as it allows people who either didn't apply for a table, or someone we didn't approve for whatever reason, to be able to sell their products, which isn't fair to those that put in the effort and were selected to participate in AA.

With the table display thing, you can either have a friend sign up with you to sell their products, or just expand your set up/display. The more there is displayed on your table, the more likely people are going to stop and look; as opposed to having only a few items out.

We do not allow people to take a discount instead of the second pass; it would just get too confusing. If you have a friend who wants to attend KumoriCon and hasn't registered yet, give them that pass. They will also be able to help out at your table, by keeping you company, or looking over things while you have to disappear and get food or something else.

Again, so sorry for not getting back sooner!

I've seen "round one" or "phase one" mentioned in several places throughout the site; what's that all about?  If we applied in "this round" and don't necessarily get a table, will we be reentered into the running for round two, or is the concept of rounds there as a precaution in case AA signup numbers were significantly lower than expected so that they weren't just open indefinitely?

I guess this is kind of a silly thing to only ask now, but I haven't been to a con since the first couple years of Kumori so if this is old hat at this point, I'm kind of out of the loop, haha D:

We only accept applications once before the convention; which for this year was up until June 1st. We then go and look through all the applicants and their merchandise and decide who will be accepted for this year. Anyone who wasn't accepted (whether from what they are selling to lack of space) will be put on a waitlist, which we will refer to if and when someone already accepted has to pull out of Artists Alley for any reason.

I hope that makes sense, and feel free to ask more questions if it doesn't.

Will we get an email saying we did or did not get in after the deadline?

Also do you look through them all after the deadline or as they come in? I'm wondering because we have updated the pages with our stuff on them since we sent in the application. . .

We started looking through the applications after the deadline. I started looking through them, personally, last night, so you should be okay with at least one of us seeing the recent uploaded pictures.

Once we have gone through all the applications and meet up to decide who will have a table, we will be sending out emails to everyone letting them know if they are in or on the waitlist.

You should be hearing from us within the next week or so, hopefully. Jen and I are meeting up later this week to decide who is going where.

And thank you! If it weren't for all of you, we wouldn't have the wonderful outcome every year from artists and attendees.

Emails may not have started being sent out yet. The Artists' Alley manager is the one sending them. She will have them all out by the end of the month, though. So don't fret too much if you haven't heard back yet! :)

d'oh :(  I was kind of hoping emails had gone out and I just hadn't gotten mine yet cos' of website crash-based shenanigans.  Well, at least it's still in the works!  That reality thread over on the general forums has got me nervous... 62 days and counting, and I haven't got a clue what I should be focusing on to make sure everything's ready before I have to leave for con, haha.

The Red Lion's website says that the hotel has wifi (I don't see anything about it on the Hilton's but their website seems even less user-friendly); I know earlier in the thread the RL was the speculated spot for the AA, has that been confirmed and if so, what is the wifi like during con conditions?  Does anyone have prior experience with the little Square readers (the things that plug into your iPad or smartphone and can take credit cards), and are they allowed in the AA?

I stayed at the Red Lion last year, and the wifi during con was great! They don't offer it-- at least not for free, at the Hilton, as far as I'm aware. I think it's around $10 a night. As for the square readers, I've got one, and it seems to work well! I know that a lot of people have started to use them, these days! I'm fairly certain that they're allowed in AA, but you guys can correct me if I'm wrong. I haven't used mine for AA yet, but I've seen them used, so I don't think they'll be an issue?

Personally, I'm waiting to restock artist alley things until I hear back either way. I usually just focus on creating new art until I'm sure that I've got a spot somewhere, so that I don't end up spending money for merch that I'm not going to be able to sell. Hope that helps! :)

There is free wifi at the Red Lion, which is where Artists Alley will be this year, but I don't know what it's like during the day. And yes, the Square Readers are allowed in the Alley.

Excellent :D  One of the artists I follow on Tumblr (who does a lot more con stuff than I do, haha) mentioned them back in February or something.  They seem super-convenient, if you have access to a smartphone or iOS device.

And yeah, I've mostly just been making things that aren't necessarily AA-specific (art cards and things), and waiting on the AA-specific things (banners, displays, business cards, printing prints) 'til I hear either way... but it feels weird to be doing the "easy" stuff and leave the "hard, important stuff" 'til later, y'know?

I'm mostly antsy because I need to figure out how I'm getting there and where I'm staying if I'm going. .-. Less worried about stock because I'm working on things for Otakon right now and will probably have things left over.

So it's apparent that we're past the deadline of when we should receive emails. That's fine, stuff happens, but do we have a new deadline/any indication of when we should receive emails? Like, within a day? Few days? Week(s)?

I do not have a set date as to when they will be out. We're having technical difficulties with the online registration for the Artists Alley admittees; so once that is fixed (once again, I don't know when that may be), emails should be coming out shortly after. But hopefully no later than a couple of weeks, if that.

I'm not the one sending out the emails, Jen (the Artists Alley manager) is, so I can't really answer that one. I've emailed her, asking where things are. Hopefully I will hear from her quickly.

No problem.  I heard back from Jen, who profusely apologizes for the delay. They're dealing with some legality issues that came up involving the contracts people have to sign for Artists Alley, which is what's holding them up.

I also asked her about emailing everyone with yes/no emails before they finish up the issues, and I'll let everyone know what she says about that.

FRET NO MORE! Emails will be sent out to everyone starting tomorrow! And if you are sharing a table with someone(s), only one person will be receiving an email. But, because of that, there might be a (very) slight chance that one group member will receive a Yes email, and another receive a No email. In that instance, ignore the No email.

Well, emails have started going out, so keep your eyes out for that if you haven't gotten yours yet!

For those of us who were declined (sigh :(), will the Art Show stuff be going up in this forum or somewhere else? (edit: the email talks about it but I can't find anything on any of the forums or on the site proper, so I suspect it's just not there yet... but I could be super blind!)

You will receive an email if you have gotten in or not. The emails were split between Jenn and myself, and she may not have gotten all of hers out yet. If you signed up with a group, however, one of the other groupmates might have received an email instead of you.

I'm a minor and on the registration it states that we only need a permission slip if you're 13-17.
The other artist and I will be 16 by the con and I wanted to know if we'll need someone 18+ with at all times?
If we do need one then is it okay to not register the 18+ year old on the Registration since they have already registered for a normal badge?

The rules in Artists Alley for minors is the same as the rest of the convention. You just need to have an adult registered at the convention, and you're good.

For those of us who have learned perhaps a week after the first batch of folks if we'll be getting in,
will we have a later deadline to make the table payment?  The folks who already know have until the 20th of July I heard.

As for the payment deadline, it's going to stay the same for everyone, unless there is an extreme reason why you cannot get the payment in on time, as all emails have been sent out as of Friday.

Hey!

I was wondering if there was a layout of AA yet and how table assignments worked.
Is it first-paid first-serve basis? Do we get to choose or is it pre-determined? etcetc

Thanks!

Sooner would be better than later to have set up information. c: My friend may need to buy a bus ticket, and as the date nears, the prices of tickets may go up!

It would be really helpful with future conventions if you could get together an information packet a little farther in advance. If I had to buy a plane ticket without knowing any of these details, I'd probably be really concerned about this lack of order. 8(

So sorry about how late things have been. Jen has been REALLY busy with work and freelance jobs lately, which has put a damper on time to get AA stuff together. I will be sending out emails today and tomorrow to everyone that is part of AA with information on setup and everything.

We will definitely keep all this in mind for next year and getting everything together sooner. Thank you for letting us know these issues.

Emails have been sent out to everyone that is a part of Artists Alley, except one person due to an invalid email. If you did not receive an email from menziesc07@gmail.com about Check-In information, please email me and I will get that information to you ASAP!

I have a question..I'm going to try to get into the AA at this con in 2013. I saw near the top/middle of the thread where people asked about tax stuff..You said we don't have to worry about that, but I didn't know exactly if that had to do with the buseness liscence thing..Like At Sakura con, you HAVE to have at the very least, a temp. business liscence to sell at all there and provide the liscence number on the app or you can't sell. Do we need to have that here? or no?

No, you do not have to have a temp. business license. As for the taxes thing; what was said was that, in AA, artists do not usually attach an extra cost to the final price. Instead, then calculate out what the tax would be for the item's they sold and figure that out afterwards. They are still technically charging the tax, but because the cost is so insignificant, it isn't worth adding it to the sale price.

Ok so I just thought of another one....
The only AA i was planning on being in before was Akicon, and they have a 24hour AA meaning you have to either leave your stuff or pack it up and unpack every day..I know THIS con's AA is a set time (I heard 10am-6pm or something) does the room just get locked up and we leave everything in there? Or do we still need to pack it up?

Yes, we lock up the hall that AA is in each night after we close. You don't have to tear down each night or anything like that. Set up on Friday, and tear down on Monday. :)

Hey again. This should be there last question..

So me and 2 friends are the ones wanting to have a table. Now, at other cons, you need to buy a 3day badge AND a table. It says on the aa page not to buy a normal badge and only the aa badge. What about the other 2 people? Do they need badges or does the one payment of the table cover all the table members?

The purchase of a table comes with 2 attendee badges. I believe the 3rd person will have to buy their own badge, but they will still receive an Artists badge just like everyone else. If I am mistaken in any way, which I could be, I will let you know!

hieis_girl1, I talked with my friends about that. Are you able to (or know who to find out for sure from) find out for sure the details of the table cost and how many members it applies to? I know it might take a while and I can wait, but we don't know if the third person can afford the member badge (I will be paying for the table so whoever that covers is under MY payment). If you can do this that would be suoer awesome of you. Thank you.

Btw, I only posted this because you said there's a chance you could be wrong lol
