One question I get asked a lot as an artist running my own business is: "What type of business should I create if I want to start selling my art too?"
Right off the cuff, one piece of advice I can give is to not get too bogged down by what decision you decide to move forward with. Don’t let one decision stop you from building something you’re passionate about. You’re not married to this decision, and you CAN change your mind later. Let's see which business entity is the best fit for you.
A lot of people have turned to me and asked, how do I manage my life (and live semi-comfortably), while running a business on my own? Well, the answer is a long one, so I figured I’d just write about it in today’s blog post.

You made it! My third installment of Artist Alley Tips for Your First Con!
If you've gone through my first two posts, you probably have gotten your pre-con paperwork complete and your table setup squared away! Awesome. But there's still a lot left to pack! Surprise!
What?? There's more? Yasss.
Welcome to my second installment of Artist Alley Tips for Your First Con! If you missed part one, you can read all about how to prep before the show here.
Part Two is all about planning your Artist Alley table setup!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably already know that I attended my first-ever con as an artist alley exhibitor at Long Beach Comic Expo this last February.
What a huge learning experience! While I had so much fun just attending, the most memorable and valuable part was having the opportunity to connect with fellow artists, and gaining insight and feedback on how to improve my experience next time! Seriously, so much love for these awesome artists.
2019 update: I'm no longer offering apparel, but I'm hoping to restart it in the future!
A couple of months ago, I launched the Kimposed apparel line. Seeing my artwork on clothing was fun and exciting, but the launched lacked the impact that I was hoping to get. I knew that I needed live model photography! I mean, people want to see how the clothes look on real people, am I right?
