As a personal joy, I yearn to own original art created by my favourite creators, friends, jam pieces—I love ’em all. One of the best places to getting this art is at a comic convention. The one thing I noticed when I first started collecting was there was very little in the way of con rules, procedures, hell, even how to ask.
I have my way of doing things, but I want your help: how do you go about it? What takes too long? What seems too commanding? We’ll combine all those comments into a guide that you can share with anyone who’s attending a convention or requesting a commission. Leave your tips and suggestions in the comments and we’ll come back to this soon enough.
