Some very good advice here. I had some interesting experiences recently. Here's my list:
If you're a pleasant person, be pleasant, be yourself.
If you're in a negative mood, please, please, please say as little as possible. Your body language speaks volumes. I encountered a very negative situation where the artist was talking at length about why he thinks he hasn't gotten more work. I actually avoided passing the aisle on a second round as a result.
Let your work speak for itself. The old cliché is that a picture is worth a thousand words. Don't tell the AD what to think.
Never shake hands with an AD and tell them you just got over the flu. They'll surely remember you but for all the wrong reasons.
Time to take my Sudafed...

Do show me your sketchbook because I will know instantly where you are at in your evolution as an artist. I can tell how far along the road of seeing and hand/eye training you have been, and I can tell how much I can trust you.

With a mention of comic cons and since SDCC is fast approaching:
* Remember, no matter where you're at - it's professionalism that counts. So, dress the part. That means, while it may be a con (SDCC in particular), don't dress up as your favorite character. That will NOT give you an edge.
Not that anyone here would do that....
Speaking of figure sketches - I often contain the figure work and sketches in a separate book (to allow the option to look through). Should I even bother this year (I intend on going to SDCC)?
(oh, before I forget: bring breath mints.)

Agreed! I'd say it's a pretty good rule of thumb that if the person you want to be is Matter-Eater Lad then you should talk to a therapist rather than an art director. Don't go in costume to somewhere you will seek a job unless you are trying out to be a team mascot.
