Wow, so there are quite a few things I've been keeping from you guys lately.
Shepherd College WorkshopApril 7 from 4:00-6:00 pm
A quick note for those of you who are living in or around Shepherdstown, WV - I've been asked to do a workshop on comic strips and sequential art at The Entler Hotel
(which is where my senior art show was two years ago) this Friday night.
I'll be covering character development, pacing, storytelling, the creation of a comic strip, and how to break into the biz from 4 to 6.
At 6:30 there will also be a show following the workshop with some of my work and LOTS of other people's work.
And immediately after THAT, I'll be driving to New Jersey through the night for the...
24-Hour Comics Challenge... and 50% Off Sale!April 8 thru 9, 12 noon to 12 noon
This weekend I'll be at WILD PIG COMICS
in Kenilworth, New Jersey participating in the Early Bird Special 24-Hour Comics Challenge!
Yes, we know the REAL 24-Hour Comics Day
is actually October 7th this year (mark your calendars!), but we usually do it a bit closer to the Pittsburgh Comic Con
I've been participating in this event every year (although last year I totally gave up and passed out on the couch!) and I can't emphasize enough what a great comic book store it is.
Co-owner Chris Eberle
is a good pal of mine and an all-around good guy.
Wild Pig will be throwing a huge 50% off sale from April 8, Saturday at noon (when we start our 24-hour challenge) until our challenge is over on Sunday at noon.
In addition to myself, other guest artists participating in the challenge include the infamous James Hatton of In His Likeness
mega-talented artist Bill Ellis who occasionally puts visuals
to Hatton's words (he was also my booth babe
at Baltimore last year);
and a girl named Jonna (sp?!) who's a talented young art major in New York and was here with us last year.
Pittsburgh Comic ConApril 21 thru 23
As always, I'll be at my FAVORITE convention in Pittsburgh
after Easter weekend.
And looky here
! I'll be at a BIG GIRL BOOTH!
GWS will have its own small press corner booth this year at S090 at the back of the convention hall near the special guests, and with any luck, there will be some eye-catching decorations in the booth so you won't miss me.
More information to come. :)
Paradise Toronto Comic ConApril 28 thru 30
I'm just going because it sounds like fun, I like a lot of the people who will be there, and above all, it's in freaking Canada.
In other words, don't look for me (I won't have a booth!), I'll look for you. :)
