On the weekend for September 12th, a friend and I went to the Montreal Comic Con with our art merchandise. I’ve been planning for this for over a year. I had 2 original comics, 4 different prints in varying sizes, a collaborative comic. I didn’t set my expectations very high – business-wise, I only really wanted my table fee back in profit. I was really worried I wouldn’t sell a single comic, let alone print, but I’m happy to say I sold plenty and lots of people showed interest! I also had a couple commissions, and talked to a few new artists when I had a chance. The unfortunate thing is that it is so busy, it is next to impossible to network and you have to be in customer service mode 100% of the time. Depending on whether or not I am accepted, I plan on going to TCAF next year and having new material.
Some of the artwork in the foreground is by Natasha Petras, who was my table-mate.
