CTNX, Comic-Con, Emerald City, MoCCA…You’ve always dreamed of exhibiting at conventions, but where do you start? How do you decide which prints, art books, buttons or pins to sell? Which conventions do you tackle first? How do you differentiate yourself from the hundreds of professionals, amateurs and everyone in-between at the con? In episode 069 join animation professionals Alina Chau, Casey Robin and Jeff Schuetze for part one of our Convention Roundtable as they explore the dos and don’ts of the convention circuit!
