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.
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?
As many of you may or may not know, this was my first holiday rush with Kimposed. It's been a whirlwind and such a learning experience. Needless to say, I'll be much more prepared next year.
Starting a business is scary. Starting a online creative business featuring your handmade crafts and artwork is even scarier. Luckily, Etsy’s marketplace is a pretty easy transition into the world of e-commerce. Here are my tips on how to secure your first sales, based on my own Etsy selling experiences!
