Artist Alley is designed for individual artists (pencillers, inkers, colorists) only, and their table must consist of at least 51% prints and/or originals of the Artists own work. The rest can consist of other artistic interpretations (crafts, sculpting, etc.) but they must be exclusive creations of the Artist. Prints/exact reproductions of the work of other artists will not be considered for Artist’s Alley.
If you create craft types of work (sculpture, knitting, crochet, bracelets/earrings/other jewelry, plush/stuffed animals, pins/buttons, etc.) and it is more than 49% of your presentation then you are not eligible for Artist Alley. Crafters must apply using the Vendor Application.
