Have you guy's thought about using more social media to draw people to your table? I'm thinking at a larger con such as Chicago doing something like a live tweet or Instagram using lots of hashtags may draw people over to your booth or to the website.
Oh man, I barely know what I'm doing on Twitter as it is. I should try to remedy that eventually. Ugh.
I think it's awesome you guy's sold out the comic.
Fortunately, we didn't sell out until the final day of the convention, so that worked out well.
I have always wondered how a small artist would do in such a setting. I would imagine many of the people there would only have so much to spend and already have an idea of what they wanted from some of the bigger artist or dealers, not leaving so much to spend on new stuff they find though they may still visit the website if interested.
Yeah, the dealers (who sell mass-produced goods) definitely get most of the attention from con-goers, but luckily there are a lot of people who still make a point to check out artists alley, and there are even some who are rad enough to try and seek out new and original stuff instead of just fanart. Those people rule.
