ME: You can't set a price that way, Nate.  If the place if full of
Piekos fans, $25 is way cheap.  If no one who shows up at the con
wants your work, $25 is too much.  And you need to take into account
how much it matters to you, how much you want the money, etc..  It may
also matter a lot what other artists around you are charging.

Set a price and prepare to adjust it as people start lining up to
buy...or don't.

ME: Usually, they just hand it to you.  If you're doing pencil
drawings though, it might not be bad idea to take along some manila
envelopes or something.
