Emerald City Comicon 2013 is Almost Here!

 ECCC 2013 exhibit floor

Emerald City Comicon is less than two weeks away! The convention has grown in size each year, and it looks like 2013 will be the biggest ECCC yet. Three-day and Saturday-only passes have already sold out online. The exhibit floor has nearly doubled in size. And one of the most exciting art-related developments this year will be an art show organized by Julie Baroh from Krab Jab Studio. Stop by the gaming area of the show to view and purchase work by professional artists, many of whom will also have tables in the exhibit hall. Some of the art from FAERIE:Contemporary Fairy Art Group Show, which is currently hanging at Krab Jab Studio through February 28th, will also be making an appearance at the ECCC art show.

Vinod and I will be sitting at booth Q-02 in Artist Alley. We're on a main aisle, so hopefully we'll be easier to find in the crowd. The goodies I'll have available include copies of The Explorer's Guide to Drawing Fantasy Creatures, posters, prints, and sketchbooks. Though they're not likely to fit on the table, I plan to bring some original paintings to sell, so if you're interested in seeing what's available, please ask. This year I have an illustration printed in ECCC's limited edition Monsters and Dames 2013 Art Book. If you buy the book (available at the ECCC Merchandise booth), stop by our table and I'll be happy to sign it for you. The proceeds from the book go to Seattle Children's Hospital.

Emerald City Comicon will take place at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle from Friday, March 1st through Sunday, March 3rd. More information about the show is available at the Emerald City Comicon website. Hope to see you at there!
