The Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) is an annual comic book convention taking place in Seattle, Washington. Originally taking place at the city’s Qwest Field (first at West Field Plaza, then at the Event Center), the venue changed in 2008 to its current home at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. In 2011, the show expanded to a three-day event.
The convention features a wide array of activities and programming including industry guests, various discussion panels, celebrity signings and photo opportunities, prize drawings, and costume contests. It features a large and lively Exhibitor’s hall with comics retailers from across the entire Pacific Northwest bringing a large stock of modern and vintage comics, as well as other products such as statues, action figures, models, etc. CCG, RPG, and tabletop gaming is supported in specific areas of the convention center.

This year, for the first time ever, it features me, doing the sort of thing I usually do at conventions, meeting fans, signing books, drawing sketches, doing on-the-fly perspective critiques. I’ll be bringing copies of my latest comics SNOW ANGEL and EVERYBODY GETS IT WRONG!, along with some work in progress, most notably the project I’m working on right now, three spherical paintings on bowling balls, among them an adaptation of this panoramic comic:
Look for me in the Artist Alley section at table MM-20. I’ll be sharing space with Jacob Mercy of the webcomic PIZZA GUN.
