ARTIST ALLEY 101
Hi there deviantart guinea pigs! 8D I'm preparing an outline for a panel at A-kon! I have vast experience attending conventions and displaying my work. What I've written here are my total thoughts on how to do your first artist alley. It has not been made into an outline yet.

Fongie and I had an art table again this year, she sold her han
Now that the new year is in full swing, it's probably time for a new update, yes? I think so too.
The weather was really nice for a couple of weeks in January, the ice and snow was melting a little and I even saw grass once! The smell of melting snow in the air reminded me of spring...and makes wish it was really here.
It's already cold again though, a depressing reminder that spring won't officially be here for another 3 months. The days are getting longer though! The sun is staying out later, so at least I can see spring coming in that way.
The smell of spring always makes me so happy though, it brings back great memories - of the
