Hey, anyone interested in coming to a convention in Vancouver?
is a long-running science fiction, fantasy, gaming, etc. convention that this year is going to have an artists' alley for comics for the first time. If you live within reasonable proximity and are interested in any of these things I highly recommend it! And if you make comics and are looking for a con to attend in this neck of the woods, I also recommend it! I've been two years in a row now and done fairly well for myself- and that was before the artists' alley.
The guests this year are going to be the creators of Looking for Group
and Least I Could Do
. My group Cloudscape will also be there, as I'm hoping will be a lot of Vancouver comickers. We've got a lot of talented people out here. The con is October 2-4 in downtown Vancouver and there is a hotel attached for anyone interested. For artists, you need to get a membership as well as the table, but if you go for the "games and exhibits only" pass, the two together are a decent price. And tables are big enough to share, hint-hint.
This is all new this year, but I'm hoping V-Con becomes a Big Deal for west coast comics. That's why I signed up as a promotion monkey for them! Any questions, just ask.
