Calling all Chicago-area fans! I had meant to post about this some weeks ago, but I always fall behind on this blog in the summer. My second comics convention appearance this year will be at Wizard World in Chicago starting one week from today, on Thursday, August 8th 2013. I’ll be selling copies of my books and original art and presumably meeting new people, and if I at least break even I’ll do it again next year.
David Chelsea is reading:
Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls
by David Sedaris
Fellow guests will include fellow comics creators Stan Lee, Chris Claremont, Neal Adams, Dan Parent, and Danny Fingeroth, actors Andrew McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Verne Troyer, Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk, Wil Wheaton, Lou Ferrigno, Linda Blair, Ralph Macchio, and Jason Priestley, as well as basketball player Dennis Rodman, and that’s just the ones I’ve heard of!
A stellar lineup to be sure, but please drop by my table (B35!) in Artists’ Alley first, and check out this panel on Thursday:
Creativity That Lasts
As an artist, writer, actor, musician or creator, there is nothing more challenging than the development of the creative process. Is art birthed from the spontaneous or is it a result of a carefully crafted rhythm and structure? In this panel, esteemed creators, David Chelsea (Snow Angel; Dark Horse Presents; Welcome to the Zone), Trevor Mueller (Albert the Alien; Reading with Pictures), Dan Parent (Archie; Betty and Veronica; Sabrina the Teenage Witch), and Rob Prior (Spawn; Deep Space 9; Evil Ernie; Heavy Metal) describe how to overcome creative obstacles and share their keys to unleashing creativity. Moderated by Tony Kim (ROOM 42)
