As I'm sure you all know this weekend is the ever-growing and monstrous comic's convention, NEW YORK COMIC CON. Housing almost everything & everyone comics-related under the sun. In fact I think this year's special guest is actually the Sun itself. Bring your shades.
I just wanted to let everyone I'll be spelunking my way through the isles at the show. I've got quite a few things on the to-do list and fortunately for me, since I've literally the best job in the world, all of them are going to be a blast. I'm also going to be visiting and saying 'ello to a few comic book comrades including the talented Bill Walko of The Hero Business. If you're hitting up the show definitely stop by his booth at E15 of Artist Alley. I've picked up the first collection of The Hero Business and it's a riot. You can also read the book online at www.TheHeroBiz.com.
Along with Bill I'm going to try to stop by the booth of the crowdfunding phenomenon, Kickstarter. I'll be running a Kickstarter campaign myself in the very near future for a project that I'm EXTREMELY excited about which includes the partnering of ultra-talented author, Johnnie Arnold (BB Wolf and the Three LP's, The Rabid). More on that soon. Look forward to the opportunity to say hi to the their fine founder.
And of course the uber artist, Greg Ruth with be at their booth chatting about & selling copies of his own Kickstarter success, the art book The 52 Weeks Project. If you haven't grabbed this up, it's a must. You can snag it here on Greg's Etsy site HERE or at NYCC itself. And you can check out the massively impressive collection of work on his message board right HERE.
On top of the enjoyment of NYCC I just love being in the city. New York as a place has never failed to impress and inspire (or exhaust). Can't wait. Anyways, I'll keep you all posted on the events of the show and will do my very best to remember to take pics this year. Something that usually falls away from my mind each year as soon as the sensory bombardment that is NYCC takes affect.
Take care peoples and I'll chat with you soon!
