I'm Natalie from IcyPanther's Art Shop. I'm always looking for ways to share my art and get some exposure, and I was thinking one way to do that might be to offer freebies for panels.
I got the idea when I was at Youmacon last November and a fellow artist asked if I'd be willing to donate some stuff to her Sailor Moon panel for prizes, and it got me thinking.
So here's what I am proposing. If you are hosting a panel and want to do a giveway of some sort, I'd like to give you some free merchandise, with the idea that you can pass out some of my business cards and say a little blurb about me and where to find me in the artist alley (I'm table 98 btw!). I know that there are a ton of panels, and I can't do them all so I'm offering this on a first come, first serve basis for each series. I.e., I'll give things out to the first Pokemon panel that contacts me, not the second or third.
I have a variety of items, but it would be up to me to choose what to give out. You must also be honest and promise to give the items to your panel attendees and not keep them for yourself. We can work out the kinks later if anyone is intersted, but you'd be able to drop by my table after the AA opens on Friday to come pick up some freebies and a bunch of business cards.
So, for anyone interested, here is a list of series that I will be offering some free art for. If you are hosting a panel (and you must be hosting it) and want some stuff, please post here on the forum. Do not contact me via message or your request will be ignored.
The series offered include:
Avatar the Last Airbender: pyrrhicvictini
- Avatar: Legend of Korra
Axis Powers Hetalia: Haro
- Fairy Tail
- Fruits Basket
- Harry Potter
- My Little Pony (will take up to 2 panels)
- Naruto: Haro (general)
One Piece: Sayuri-chan (general)
- Pokemon (will take up to 2 panels): Kamen Rider Gumo AND ____
- Sailor Moon
- Soul Eater
- Wolf's Rain
Now, what is my art? You can check it out on my Etsy Shop for what I offer, but it can be anything from keychains, buttons, stickers, bookmarks, miniatures or even little mancala stones (not pictured in shop).
So post away if interested. I'll keep this post updated as things move along. Look forward to giving some stuff out!
