Between not having enough time and not having enough money, I didn’t get prints made either and only had my originals on display. Still, a few wanted to buy them but didn’t have any cash on hand and unfortunately I didn’t have credit processing set up yet either. I also learned a lot from others there about display, venues, and pricing.
Of the other vendors there, a few interesting ones stood out:
Christian Slade sells small books that told stories using only pictures and no words. I thought this was an interesting concept. His other artwork can be found here: ChristianSlade.com
J. S. Skye writes a series about a living teddy bear named Flurry who fights the forces of evil. Reminding me in many ways of my stories of dinosaur kid Nathaniel and his Gruezhling crew, I knew I had to buy the first episode. I’ll post a review as soon as I read it. FlurryTheBear.com
Mark Stuart Gagnon makes abstract art and mazes. MSGisgoodforyou.com
Greg Andrews makes interesting mermaids and pretty maids in general, and there can never be too many of those. GregAndrewsArt.com
Scott Eder writes novels of all the knight battles and magic that takes place in present-day Tampa. Why doesn’t Bay News Nine cover this? ScottEder.net, MadMuncleForge.blogspot.com
Other vendors included:
Dablur.com (drawings, paintings, antlers, and apparel)
StarMageComic.com (comics – sort of harry potter meets star wars)
SoulsOfAredyrah.com (fantasy novels about teenagers)
KishazWorld.com (novels ranging from paranormal/romance to fantasy to science fiction/mystery)
I also met a girl who visited my table who is still in the process of building a portfolio and website. She makes chainmail, jewelry, costumes, stipple drawings, photographs, sings, dances, and cooks. The one thing that blew me away were the large, complex, scented candles she makes to look like food and other things. Absolute genius!
I also met a guy who visited my table also without a website that doodles in ink to make mostly abstracts. He showed me his doodle journal he carries with him.
Other non-vendors I talked to did have websites:
Stephanieknoll.carbonmade.com (really good fantasy landscapes and creatures)
Jacobsladder.allyou.net (smoking aliens in boxers and more)
