Sometimes I'm in the Exhibitor's/Dealer's Hall, sometimes in the Artist Alley; it just usually depends on the convention...but the same stuff sold each time. There's usually a considerable difference in foot traffic though, with less interest in the Artist's area, but I like to make up for it by giving away free skteches and other artist type things ^_^

Wow! Traditional paper art is a much smaller percentage than I expected.

I realize it isn't displayed in the poll responses, but for A-Kon's Komik Market (Artist Alley) about 60% of the artists were on paper medium. This doesn't count Webcomics who had prints of their characters or books.

Approx 10% of the Komik Market was webcomics

Almost 30% was crafts of some sort: hats, jewelry, hand made kimonos, etc.

The rest was mixed up in groups of ones and twos... There weren't any promotional tables in the Komik Market - conventions and clubs were in "Convention Alley", and other promoters where in the Promoter's section.

I usually sell prints and bookmarks. Sometimes, I'll also sell original sketches/drawings.
