Anyone participating in the Artist's Alley?

Heya, just wondering who else out there plans on selling their wares and goods at the Artist's Alley at this year's AMA. I'll have some items up for grabs at my friend Dustbunny's table. Anyone else? ^_^

I'll be there with some of my cosplay parasols and I'll be taking orders for shipping. I wish I could bring more stock, but they want to cut down on non-traditional media.

Really? What are they saying about that? I'm selling some prints, yeah, but also some other goodies that wouldn't count as "traditional"...

GUIDELINES:
You all should know by now about that the GRCC's desire to limit artists to traditional commissioned artwork (comics, paper artwork, badges, paintings, sketches, posters, etc.). A few t-shirts and fabric items should be fine. They don't want huge displays with racks of merchandise. Just be aware that the GRCC could ask that certain items be removed or not for sell in the alley.

That's in the e-mail they sent out to artists. A few pieces are okay.

My friend Danny Hyunh is gonna have an Artist Table! He's an amazing artist so I hope you can take a little time out of your day to check his work out! I'm nowhere near good enough to sell any of my art though. ;.;

The GRCC hates anime. -_- plain and simple, that's why they never bothered to restart the escalators last year (expensive technician my ass!), and that's why they're being retarded about "traditional and non-traditional media". they'll probably just ban everything in the alley simply because anime is "non-traditional"! </rant>

Are you serious? That's bollocks. I can't stand people like that.

Is that the excuse they gave other people? I was working for security and they kept feeding us some b.s. about timers and not having a way to keep them running. >_<

I've got a few friends getting a table in the artist alley selling "fabric goods" as they call them--fleece character scarves and knitted paraphernalia inspired by anime--if all goes well. If they make it, you should check out their stuff! (I got an Ichigo "Angry Strawberry" scarf from them for Christmas, and it's hilarious.)

I might've heard about that too... But what I distinctly remember was that they said that whenever the escalators stopped, they had to call in some technician to push a button and appartantly, that would cost the GRCC too much money. My immediate mental (not verbal however, I kept it in) was "Bullsh**!" Show me the where the button is and I'll f***in' push it for free!!" >:O I think they were just lazy and biased.

Eh, I don't see what the big deal was. They just turned into stairs, is all. Heck. that's probably safer for cosplayers with dangly bits and trains and such. Besides, conOps was pretty disorganised last year so everyone probably heard something different.

That is entirely possible... Things were kind crazy last year, being the first year in the GRCC... Things will most likely (and hopefully) run more smoothly this year.

Ahh THAT'S why. I didn't know it was their first year there. Well hopefully they'll grow into it a little more this year ^^;
