Awesome Con’s Artist Alley is for Independent and mainstream comic creators, webcomic artists, professional writers/illustrators and 2D artists. Everything being offered for sale must be the work of the creator(s) at the table and the creator must be present at the event. You cannot sell the work of creator(s) not at your table, and you cannot trace, copy, or place Photoshop filters over someone else’s work and call it your own. If you’re selling mass-produced items or are otherwise a retailer, publisher, small press or crafter you won’t be approved for Artist Alley.
If you’re a crafter or a maker, we are working on a dedicated area of the show floor for you. The application can be found here. If you’re a retailer or publisher, we invite you to contact John O’Marra at email@example.com to discuss our exhibitor booth options.
Merchandise must be primarily paper goods. A small number of other items such as T-shirts, pin, and totes are permissible so long as they do not represent the majority of items for sale at the table.
Artist Alley is curated, having current examples of your artwork available on your website will help us evaluate your application during the curation process. Only the artist submitting this form, if accepted, is approved to exhibit at the table during the event. Sharing is allowed but both artists must submit an application for approval.
The application below is a table request form. It is not a contract, and it does not guarantee space. All Artist Alley space is limited. If accepted: You will be sent a contract. In order to reserve your space, you will need to return your contract and payment within 10 days upon receipt. Space is not reserved until the balance is paid in full.

Artist Alley applications are for one table only. You cannot extend over multiple tables in Awesome Con’s Artist Alley.
