Art Track

If you are new to Art Track, you may be wondering "What is Art Track?"

Art Track is the name of all the great programming that we do in Artist's Alley.

Each year we select artists to spotlight. Each Featured Artist will host art themed panels where you can benefit from their knowledge and experience on topics ranging from getting published to colorization and more.

For the past few years Artist's Alley has proudly carried out Artist's Alley Trading Cards, an activity for artists to trade samples of their art in a business card sized 3.5 in x 2 in format with each other. This activity is limited to artists.

There are more new and upcoming events in the works besides this that may allow different levels of participation for both artists and attendees.

Karlen Tam

Karlen is a self-taught artist who has been drawing since elementary school and never stopped. Originally thinking that she'd be some sort of scientist someday, she had kept on drawing as a hobby while studying and working hard, until one day she decided she wasn't ever going to grow up after all and should just make art all the time. That's when she started creating artwork and exhibiting at her first convention in 2011. Karlen's work has appeared in an issue of Nintendo Accion (Spain), and other collaborative projects such as Midnight Phantasmagory and Hyrule Historia.
