I’ve decided that next year I am going to sell my art at the local anime conventions in artist alley. I’m concentrating on making kawaii things, like unicorns and kittens.
Artist Alley encourages on the spot commissions. I didn’t think I could do this at first because generally my pencil work kinda sucks unless I spend hours on it. I finally figured out what I could offer that would be quick and super adorable. Tiny animal sketches! I found out today that half an index card is the perfect size for my drawings because I draw really small. I also found out that I’m not good at drawing monkeys. I thought I would sell them for $1.00 seeing as they are so small and in pencil.
Is this something you would spend a dollar on?
The rest of my merchandise will be professionally printed digital work, in delightfully bright or pastel colors.
