Artist Alley Advertising
« on: May 05, 2007, 10:38:17 pm »
I started this one last year and I didn't get alot of feedback but I still think this is a good idea.  So whoever is going to have a booth (You can post whenever you decide) go ahead and post here, get some of your work out, sell yourself to the public or advertise before the con and contact other members of the forum who are going this year.  

Members: Please PM anyone who posts here if you are interested in their work.

So post away and let us know what to expect this year.

Note: I am on the lookout for D.Gray-Man, Bleach, Trigun, and Yakitake!! Japan art work.  I'd also love to see some traditional Japanese style art but mostly those four titles.  Thankies!

Yay! My table has been confirmed all I need to do now is make inventory and make it to Vancouver :3!! I haven't made a lot of fan artwork recently, but I do plan on having some eventually. Mostly 5x7" prints, 2x2" stickers and book marks; also larger originals for sale. I'm hoping to sell some lolita type things alice bows, bags, etc. I'll also be doing personal commissions and can also do portrait commissions as well :3 Drop me a line if you're looking for anything in particular!

*updated hopeful inventory list*
stickers *p*
bookmarks
hand/bag mirrors
zip pouches
bags *p*
hair accessories
fanart prints
commissions and portrait commissions
*p*=possibility
(I ran out of time due to having to get a job 2 months before the con so I've been tired and busy, please stop by!)

I have secured my table for this upcoming Alley, so I'm definitely selling.

I'll have my older prints at a discounted price which include:
- King of Fighters (various single characters)
- Vampire Savior/Darkstalkers (various, but mostly Morrigan)
- Final Fantasy VII (Cloud and Sephiroth in civilian clothes)

Last year's prints, probably at regular price:
- xxxHolic (two group prints)
- Gankutusou (one print, the Count and Haydee)
- Kingdom Hearts (Sora and Riku in Civies, Sora and Roxas portraits)
- Osu! Tatakae OUENDAN! (one print)

New prints for this year:
- Gyakuten Saiban/Phoenix Wright (one group print)
- Deathnote (main characters in Mad Tea Party setting)
Not sure what else I'll have time for.

Keychains
Last year's batch:
- Ouendan! (Hajime and Ryuta)
- Gyakuten Saiban/Phoenix Wright (Phoenix and Edgeworth)
- Kingdom Hearts (Sora/Roxas back to back images)

Planned keychains:
- Gyakuten Saiban (adding more characters to the previous set)
- Ouendan (new characters and those I didn't make first time around)
- Resident Evil (So far, Claire and Leon in RE2 versions)
- xxxHolic (Four so far, Yuuko Watanuki, Doumeki and Himawari)
- Tsubasa (Four planned, Shaoran and Sakura in ink stages)
- Ouran Host Club (Six planned with twins as one keychain)

The art for my new keychains will probably be sold too as postcard sized prints.  

As I get pics posted, I'll link them up.  Otherwise, some of my older stuff can be found at my DA and Y!Gallery accounts.

I'll probably be doing commissions and portrait sketches on a case by case basis. ^__^
Am I on one of those hidden camera shows?

I'll probably have a table.   The repair station will probably be put in the vender hall and I also get an AA table with the deal.  So if they are both in the same room there is no trouble with me running both at once (no need to pay some kids in merchandise to watch the AA table). Don’t know what all I will have but I ASSuME it will be leather

This is going to be my first year at Kumoricon, and my first time selling my art in an Artist Alley.   I'm excited ^_^

I'm planning on having mostly prints and a few bookmarks, maybe some keychains (if I can figure out a good way to make them)

Congrads on the the decision! This will be my second year peddling my art the Kumoricon. I am pretty stoke since I learned *A LOT* last year and eager to apply what I learned.

Your art looks great, you should do well enough. I will be sure to look closer when DA comes back up and running properly. ^^

I wonder.....
How 'bout during some of the major events we allow commercials? For example, have the MC say something like  "...and now a word from our sponsor..."  and then someone come on stage and talk about some of the vendors in the dealers' room and about some of the artists in artists alley????

That would be awesome!  I love the idea.  Great advertiseing since it's kinda hard to shove through all the talented artists in our line-up this year.

Ok!  Time for my advertisment.  Here goes:

Hey!  My name is "Bastett" or Kerry-kun and I offer original anime style portraits at affordable prices.  I offer fanart, OC designs, commission (either before hand, after the con or during the con; this includes group portraits drawn in anime style) and various other things.

This year I am offering these new items:
Key-chains
Chibi Bookmarks (Please check out my other thread for my bookmarks for my gallery listed bellow)
Stickers
And (possibly) a coloring book

Here are my prices:

Prints (11x17 poster paper)= $8 each
Stickers = $1.50 each or 4 for $5 (save $1 on 4)
Bookmarks and key-chains= $3
Commissions= Roughly starting at $10 and it goes up for group shots.  On sight single shots are $5+

As for the coloring book... I am going through my stuff and figuring if I can actually do this.  I really want to get one out this year for those who are interested in coloring with copics or just want to practice using my line-art.  I ink very well and I get tons of requests for coloring book pages but either way I will have coloring book pages for free just gotta decide on the book.

Here is a list of series I am offering art from:
Bleach
Naruto
Pita ten
Fruits Basket
Inu Yasha
FMA
D.Gray-Man
Trigun
DigiCharat
Nana
Shaman King

And the list will continue to grow as I get more offers for series to be drawn.

PLEASE HELP!  I am currently looking for suggestions for sticker ideas and bookmarks.  I have these that I am working on:

Digi Charat
Bleach
Nana
Pita ten

Please fill this short list in.  I will go through these and try to complete these sets or atleast get them going.  No more commissions, please but do give me suggestions for the con.  I would really, REALLY appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks again and see you at the con!  Look for me, k?  :D

Okie dokie, here is the general rundown for what will be at my table indefinitely:


Prints(8x10 and 4x5)
----------------------
Final Fantasy 7 (Hojo, Turks, Vincent)
Final Fantasy 8 (Laguna Kiros and Ward, and maybe some travel posters if I can get my act together in time)

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (so far just of Link and the Zoras)

Inuyasha (just Sesshomaro for right now)

Fantasy and Mythological themed pieces

Koi fish

Native and non native birds


There will be stickers (roughtly 2"x2") and bookmarks (large sized  3"x8").

I will also have some of the original paintings both of the 9x12 and the pieces for the bookmarkers. Those will be marked and I am unsure what the prices will be on those yet.


This is the tentative prices as of right now (this may chance as I gear up at the end of August:


2.5"x 2.5" Glossy stickers               1.00ea
4"x 5"      Matte Prints                   2.00ea
3"x 8"      Laminated book markers   3.00ea
8"x 10"    Matte Prints                   10.00ea
8"x 10"    Glossy Prints                  12.00ea

10"x 14"   Matte Prints                  10.00ea



You can look at my sig link for my DA website if you want to take a peek. Ooorrr, you can just swing my table at the con.  Just look for the table that people are not standing around. ><   If I have time once I find out where my table will be, I will post that, and I am sure so will everyone else here.

Hi! I've got my table all set to go too, but I'm still working on stuff to put on it. I do know I'll be offering DeathNote, FMA, Harry Potter for sure, and possibly Ouran Highschool if I get the chance. My dA site is www.rio-armare.deviantart.com if you want to stop by and take a look. Thanks!

As I said my stuff will be leather.

I know I’ll have some Hige Collars, made one last year and have the plates left. I have no idea if the other werewolves wear a different symbol

And a few DearS Collars, I have been researching and they are basically a cross between an old leather neck brace and a leather restraint and I have worked with both

Pirate/musketeer sword belts

Maybe pirate hats

Pocky pouches like ammo pouches but to fit boxes of pocky

I want to make some giant nerf hammers like from Mario games

I’ll try to bring some basic capes and cloaks I have 200 pieces of cloth and 4 sewing machines I should bring one cape to the con

A champion belt for the catgirl wrestling

...and bodices for the aunties who want to look like pirate wenches. I made my first basic bodice last month (and I’ll take it in for free at the con if she still wants I’m bringing a heavy sewing machine) mostly they will be browns and they are a few sizes fit all with the lacing on the sides and all.

If any one can think of any thing else or has question let me know

And a gallery of some of my craptasic stuff

Found out where my table is going to be. I am going to be at table 216, across from Nekopan bakery. So if someone could let me know who will be my neighbor (214), it would be cool. ^^
