Greetings AAC crew! Your humble admin here! Con season is right around the corner, and I know you’re all hard at work prepping your merch and booking your tables. We’re also shaking off that post-holiday daze at AAC. We’ve just added a bunch of new shows over on the Conventions page (including some January cons) for your reviewing pleasure, and there are more on the way. Go check ’em out and leave some feedback if you’ve got it! And of course, if there’s an event you want added to the list, just use the Submit a Con form. Take care, my lovely AAers! 🙂
Happy New Year from AAC!
Greetings artists! I hope you all had fun ringing in the New Year! Here at AAC, we’re celebrating a smaller (but still pretty great) milestone. Artists Alley Confidential was officially launched less than a month ago, and we already have 55 highly informative user reviews and over 120 conventions listings. Do you know how awesome that is? Answer: very. But there’s still room to grow! As you start making your convention rounds for 2016, I encourage you to let your fellow AAers know about this resource. The more voices we add to our community, the better it becomes! And as always, keep those reviews, comments, and convention submissions coming. Best…
Updated Convention List

First, if you go to the Conventions page, you’ll notice that events are now listed alphabetically by state. I received a lot of feedback regarding the organization of this list, and the number one request was to group conventions by location. You can still use the search tool (up top in the main menu) to find conventions by name, city, or date (I recommend searching by month). Canadian and UK cons will be added soon, and will be sorted by province and country, respectively. Which brings me to the next update.…
Hey guys! Your humble admin here. First off, I just wanted to say how glad I am to see that you’re finding this little resource useful! I’ve received a lot of feedback regarding additional features you’d like to see, and am looking into implementing some of them soon. Regarding submitting conventions for the list, I’d like to get a bit more specific with the protocol. It has come to my attention that there are a lot of cons. Like, a daunting amount. More than one person can handle, really. So with that in mind, I’d like to ask for your help! If you want a con added, you can still…
Rolling out the welcome mat
Welcome to Artists Alley Confidential! Here we invite you, the hard-working artists of AAs across the country, to review your pop culture convention experiences. Help fellow artists find great cons, or spread the word about shows to avoid like the plague. Tell organizers what you loved about an event and what you’d like to see next year. There are no wrong answers! Everyone is free to contribute (but having a look at the rules first is a good idea), and remember, names are optional but honesty is a must!
