emerald_city_logoWith Emerald City Comicon just around the corner (March 27-29 in Seattle), I figured now would be a good time to post my list of scheduled comic convention appearances for this year. Here’s all the deets on that show.

Wizard World Philadelphia

May 7-10. I’ll be in the main exhibitor area of Wizard World Philadelphia, with all my usual fun stuff — Evil Inc graphic novels, original art, commission list, etc. But the thing I’m really looking forward to is the panel discussion we’ve got planned in which my two sons and I will talk about podcasting with your kids. We do a podcast called Hey Comics, Kids! during our morning drive to school, and we’ll show you how you can, too — and more importantly — why.

Wizard World Chicago

Aug. 20-23. I’m so excited to be adding three more Wizard-run shows to my convention calendar this year, and the first up is Chicago. I’ve done Wizard World Chicago before, and it has always been amazing. I’ll be in Artists’ Alley for this one, and I’ll post a map of the show floor as soon as I’m able.

Wizard World Columbus

Sept. 18-20. This will be my first time at Wizard World Columbus (Ohio), and I’m really looking forward to it because I’ll be in Artists’ Alley exhibiting next to Alex Heberling, whose coloring of Evil Inc has been outstanding since she began in January.

Wizard World Ft. Lauderdale

Oct. 2-4. I’ll also be doing my first Florida convention this year with Wizard World Ft. Lauderdale. I’ll be in Artists’ Alley with all my books and art.

And then…?

I’ve exhibited at Baltimore Comic Con for many years in the past — and I love their show — but as of right now, I don’t have anything scheduled with them.

If you like the kind of news, info and tutorials I post at Webcomics.com — and if you live near Philadelphia — you may be interested in the 3-day workshops I’m doing in conjunction with Hussian School of Art. I’ll be doing one on Arts Entrepreneurship and another on Creating Comics. If you’re interested in both, you can get a significant discount for signing up for both.

ARTS ENTREPRENEURSHIP, APRIL 7-9, 6-9 p.m.

If you’d like to learn more about running a business as a creative professional, I’m offering a 3-evening workshop in Philadelphia next month. This class will be offered through Hussian School of Art — in Philadelphia’s  historic Bourse Building at 5th and Market streets — April 7-9, 6-9 p.m.

The Arts Entrepreneurship class will be a three-day crash course on running a business as a creative professional. Based on the same class I teach at Hussian, this will be a condensed guide to everything from sales tax to promotion. We’ll talk Web commerce, advertising, merchandising and more.

SEQUENTIAL ART / COMICS, MAY 5-7, 6-9 p.m.

In the Comics class, we’ll be covering comics from the basics to the fine-tuning, with plenty of hands-on exercises. If you always want to learn to do comics, this will be a great place to start. And if you’re already doing comics, I know we work together to take your craft to the next level.

This class will be offered through Hussian School of Art — in Philadelphia’s  historic Bourse Building at 5th and Market streets — May 5-7, 6-9 p.m.
