You're right my logic is off. I did not think about the artists selling stuff because I just go for autographs. I never purchased a sketch for myself the past ten years I have been going to cons but I think that will change this year Twisted Evil

All guests are flown out and their hotel taken care of at the expense of the convention. They also have appearance fees also paid for by the convention. The money obtained for signatures and photos goes to the convention to cover the cost of having the celebrity at the convention.

This also goes for comic book guests (minus the appearance fee). A couple years ago, there were issues with some artists not attending CCC because they had not received hotel and flight information by the convention organizers.

I would be all about making money just being myself and taking pictures with people. Or signing autographs. That's, like, my ultimate goal!

Too bad I didn't think of that when I played derby for Cincy. If I had $5 for every autograph/photo I would have a small fortune.

That being said, $80 for Kristen Bell is ridiculous. She's just being greedy.

Ariel isn't exactly a giant, but Nash tends to dwarf most people.
