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.
I know I haven’t blogged since the middle of July of LAST year (and I fully intend on finishing my Artist Alley series, if you’ve been waiting this entire time).
But, now that I have a fresh year ahead of me, I’ve resolved to be better about blogging, along with a handful of other things.
Before I get into my goals for Kimposed in 2018, I wanted to reflect on what made 2017 incredible.
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.
When I embarked on my 30-day art challenge on Instagram, I thought it was going to be easy. Oh contraire (It’s called a “challenge” reason)! On Day 19, I realized that I was simply forcing myself to post something on my feed, whether it was good, bad, or okay. I don’t know about you, but I want to proud of every piece that I post.
So here’s what I learned about my 30-day challenge, on Day 1
When I moved into my apartment, I knew I wanted to have a chalkboard wall somewhere, anywhere. There is a small space that separates my kitchen from my living room that is painted plain black, so I knew immediately that this was going to be my place to shine.
