I’m just back from Munich, where I had a table at the Munich Comics Festival alongside other talented Danish creators. This was my second visit and I thoroughly enjoyed both times. Two years ago I made a lot of mistakes though – the main one being not bringing any books for sale! For some reason I’d missed the fact we had a table and only brought copies to show to potential publishers and had to send many interested readers away empty-handed. Instead of selling books I started doing little sketch cards that I sold for 2 euros each. Live and learn, right?
This time around I had made a checklist and came well prepared. I even sent a box of books ahead, so I could avoid lugging too much weight and fly hand luggage only. I LOVE just getting off a plane and whizzing past everyone waiting for their suitcases!
As I’m sure many of you go to conventions from time to time, I thought I’d share my ideas for packing with you. You can download my one-sheet comic con checklist here:
Let me know if there’s anything I missed, I’m always looking to improve!
