The Annex is a new concept space located in Kentia Hall, adjacent to Artist Alley. This year, the Annex features cutting-edge fashion and art. Showcasing creators’ original art and designs, the debut of Animepls by Bioworld (pictured right), and fashion brands from Japan, The Annex is a place to discover something new, something edgy, something fun and exciting. The Annex will also feature live art, a portfolio review area, and a lounge area for Artist Alley participants and exhibitors.

We’re excited to welcome Artist/Animator Sean Danconia (founder of SupaPop Studios) as an Annex Guest of Honor! He will have a booth in The Annex and will be participating in both live art and portfolio review sessions. (More info TBA!)

Collateral Damage Studios (Artist Alley Table C16/C17) and Ruwen Liu of Sizigi Studios (Artist Alley Table L22) will also conduct portfolio review sessions. (More info TBA)
