emerald_city_logoEvery year for as far back as I can remember, the amazing folks at Emerald City Comicon have been kind enough to bring me out to Seattle to exhibit at their show. It’s the First Rite of Spring for me. So you can imagine how excited I am to be making the trip one more time to exhibit at a show that I consider to be second-to none.

This year, I’ll be exhibiting in the Skybridge — that walkway between the two parts of the main exhibition hall. And I’ll be in terrific company. I’ll be side-by-side with my friends at WeLoveFine, Scott Kurtz and Tavis Maiden. And right across from us will be Dazzling Dave Kellett and fine folks of Topatoco.

I’ll have the Evil Inc graphic novels there, along with copies of The Webcomics Handbook and original art. And if you’ve got a copy of the new Tales From the Con comic book, I’ll happily sign it!

I’m opening a Commission List early. If you’d like to get an original drawing from me, I’ll do it before the show and have it on hand to present to you when you arrive. All commissioned illos are 8×10″ (suitable for framing), done with archival ink on sturdy bristol board! Of course, I’ll be happy to put a headshot sketch in any book you buy, and I’m always happy to do commissions during the show, but this way, I can take my time and do a really polished illustration for you!

And clear your schedule on Friday so you can join me and a few of my friends for a screening of Stripped, The Comics Documentary. It’s in Hall A at 6 p.m. After the screening, Dave Kellett will moderate a discussion among Dylan Meconis, Danielle Corsetto, Kris Straub and me!

I’ve got a handy guide for you below. Click on the image to get a printable PDF that you can use to navigate your way to a firm, warm handshake and a gentle pat on the shoulder, as between old friends. I’ll see you there!
