2019 event review in Vancouver

I started going to events this year to sell my art work.  I'll be leaving reviews of my personal experiences at each event. 

 This will be the master post and i'll be slowly adding reviews that will be linked from here. 


Things to take into account about my reviews

  • I do not have a car, so I must have good public transportation to the event
  • I need to be able to carry all my supplies and prints in one suit case, so small setup
  • To save on convention fees, I need to share a table whenever possible
  • The total cost per event needed to be less than $100 so I was doing smaller events
  • I don't do fan art, just original work so sales and interest may be low compared 
  • I stuck to selling $15 prints until VanCaf when I introduced my art zine, 13 x 19 prints.
