After a hiatus last year, How Not to Starve as a Starving Artist is returning to Acen this year. This is a business panel for artists and covers a wide range of topics on how to keep from going broke while you pursue your craft. We are going to cover things such as Artist Alleys, pricing, product, marketing, budgeting, branding and more.

I noticed on the forums that this year we have a lot of new artists coming. Is there anything specific you want us to discuss or questions you'd like answered during the panel? I remember how daunting your first AA experience can be, especially when it comes to the business end of it.

ooh, i'll come if i can. ^_^ i would like to see a bit on making a workspace/AA table attractive to potential buyers, and utilizing space vertically. i just know my place will be a mess unless i pay special attention (and possibly supplies) to making it look nice. (i hope to get a table for acen '09.)

Sadly won't be attending ACen 2012. So I'll be taking my cosplay up a notch for 2013.

Just bumping this excellent panel up to the top once more because I usually either attend or participate in the panel. It RULES.

If you plan to do ok at Artist Alley, this is a great prerequisite!

Bring a pad and pen....or an audio recorder.
