Well Huh.

I've been encouraged for years and years to submit my work to sci-fi fantasy conventions.

Of course, I submit to Demi Con every year, for over 10 years now. But as I'm making my list and checking it twice, I have noticed a common theme for all art shows:

The Display Art is only for originals or limited editions. 

Oh.

I did not realize that. Shoot.

I have a few originals left that can be hung up...but that doesn't help with sales. Very rarely do I sell an original at the con.

Secondly, I don't have limited edition prints. :/ I mean I do, like 4, from like...6 years ago. That's it.

So, if you go to the shows, don't look for my work on the display panels, I'll be over in the shuffle of the pile...in the print shop.

That stinks that displays are only originals or limited edtions... :/ Have you found any shows that that doesn't apply to?

I've never submitted art to a con. I don't know if it would be worth it.
