Located and Hosted by Emerald Knights Comics and Games in Burbank, the event name says it all: Filled with local artists and writers (sometimes both) who love to share their craft with the world.
UPDATE: I have just been confirmed as an artist alley vendor for this show (table payment has already been processed). Looking forward to exhibiting at this con for the first time, as I only attended on a Sunday during its inaugural year in 2016. I should have both my new Mongoose Mondays Band Name Illustration and Cosmic Force character prequel books ready for this show.
Year two of this great festival right down the street from my day job! Stay tuned for more details on my appearance here in the months to come!
Held once again at Granada Pavilion, I will be making a third and final appearance for the year at this show to debut my Mongoose Mondays Band Name Illustration book, and my first Cosmic Force character prequel: "The Man with a Short Fuse."
Looking forward to appearing at this second annual outdoor festival filled with music food, arts, crafts, and comics from yours truly.
Created and promoted by Kimzar Kollectables comic shop owner Raz Simonian, (local store in Santa Clarita of course), this fall edition of this new small antelope valley convention (his first show was held in March) will take place once again at the College of the Canyons Gymnasium.
It's the annual comic convention that wraps itself around the Halloween weekend! Last year's show (the first under the new name, formerly Comikaze) was a great big ball of energy, with record-setting crowds and an expanded convention hall. Let's see what this year has to offer.
This opportunity to exhibit at a bar/club was presented to me by a vendor buddy of mine who tables there alot, and I'm always down to try something new. More details to come.
I'm returning to my old stomping grounds of conventions. Taking place at Granada Hills Pavilion, it's a local show for me as I live across the San Fernando Valley in North Hollywood. As I've tabled at this event several times since 2014, I'm bringing two new things to the table....literally: Free pencil sketches, and my new fourth issue of Damn Tourists!
This will be Ontario's first comic book convention located at the Ontario Convention Center. While first time shows can be quite the gamble, the fact that this event is being put together by the same team that organized the Long Beach Comic Expo and Comic Con shows is a good sign in my opinion. We shall see in a month and a half.
This will be my first Free Comic Book Day event that I will be a part of! I'll be doing free sketches at the Culver City Teen Center near The Comic Bug shop, along with having a few of my self-published comics with me.
As mentioned in my Tulare Sci Fi Con event, this will be my first showing at this convention, and my first time in San Jose. I hear that it has the perfect combination of indie comics fans with lots of money, so I'm definitely excited to see how this show goes!
I'm baaaaaaaaack! After having to sit out the last two Wondercons as an exhibitor due to financial issues, I've just been confirmed for a small press table for their 2017 show, which is back at the Anaheim Convention Center. More details on table number and floor layout to come!
Just announced yesterday! I've been wanting to try this show out since last year when in first began, but had always been booked for another show happening on the same day. Now, it's happening on the last free weekend I had in March (I'm doing a convention every other weekend then). Since this show will be during an extremely busy month for me convention-wise, I will be combining updates for this event with the other three March events I'll be participating in.
I'll be doing this show the day after The Hive Buzzine and Buzzare event. It will be the first time that I have an exhibitor booth instead of an Artist Alley table. Stay tuned for more details later!
This show is back for a springtime appearance! As I mention on the show hours, it will be a Saturday evening ordeal to ensure more foot traffic for the weekend night owl crowd!
This show returns for its third year after cancelling their event last year due to an inability to find open show dates away from Silicon Valley Comic Con (a show I'll also be doing, but more on that later). This is being moved down the road from the International Agri Center to the Farm Credit Dairy Center in Tulare. More details soon!
This will be my fourth year exhibiting at this series of shows, which occurs in the spring, summer, and fall. I will be vending at this spring show only, as I have other new conventions I'd like to try out this year. More details to come!
This one takes place at the Pasadena Convention Center. I did this show for the first time last year and didn't do well due to being placed in the back and lower attendee turnout because of a competing convention on the same day. Here's hoping for a better second year.
My first convention of 2017 will be this brand new three-day show at the Align Gallery in Highland Park. More details to come...
This will be my guaranteed last show of the year. Expect to see my new Mongoose Mondays Christmas Carols interactive illustration book series heavily promoted here.
This will be my final show of the year. I'll be solo this time with my many different comic lines (three done entirely by me, two I collaborated with another person). My table payment has just been processed, and I'll know my table number by the end of the week. Stay tuned!
I've just been confirmed for this new small convention in the City of Industry, that is specifically aimed at independent comic book creators! I will also be a part of a comics panel for the very first time, so I'm very excited about what this show will bring!
Some updates about my appearance at this brand new show: This event will be taking place at the LIMS Motion Picture Studio lot in Castaic, just a few miles from Six Flags Magic Mountain. Both the vendor hall and Artist Alley will have movie backdrops ranging from 1920's speakeasy, to a Post-apocalyptic background. There's only one answer to that revelation: YOU NEED TO GO!!
Here's another show opportunity that just sorta came out of nowhere: After meeting with an event organizer during my lunch, I was made aware of an upcoming art festival happening near my day job. With just the location alone, there's no reason not to try out this show, though it will be the last spur of the moment event that I'll be signing up for, as I need to restore my energy after doing so many new shows this year.
After a two-year Artist Alley absence at this show, I'm back! Much like the Long Beach Comic Expo in the spring (which I just did), this convention's primary draw is comic book artists----particularly in their large Artist Alley area, which is placed right in the middle of the show floor. Look for a Mongoose Movie Mondays illustration game book to premiere at this show!
Happening at City of Commerce Rosewood Public Library. More details to be announced soon.
I make my return to this small, local convention in Granada Hills with new books and a new setup.
Happening at LA Roller Derby in El Sereno. Show details are still being finalized. More information to come soon!
Another new show I heard about from a fellow indie creator. Located in Manhattan Beach, The Comic Bug comic shop is well-known in artist circles for being indie book friendly, and is holding this event to promote such talent. I'll be releasing more details about this event as they become available.
Just announced earlier today! I will be appearing as an artist vendor for the first time in this part art gallery, part comic convention! A week after my Baldwin Park show, I may have some books and postcards left over for my new Highland Park customers. More details to come soon!
Back again for a fourth appearance at this three-in-one show: Art gallery, Art workshop, and Artist Alley! Located at the Baldwin Park Arts and Recreation Center, it's one of the best small conventions around, with a little something for everyone! I should have more of my new Mongoose Monday books by then. I'll keep you all posted!
Just signed up for this one! I should have my Mongoose Monday TV shows and Pop Songs books by then, as well as my Damn Tourist postcards, in regards to new products.
As some of you know, this show has become a three-time-a-year tradition for me since 2014. 2016 will be a little different, as I plan to only exhibit at one of their three shows ( they hold this convention in the spring, summer, and fall). Since I've had the best sales and customer interactions at their spring show, that's where you'll find me!
I'm just about to send out my vendor application for this one next week. One of the things I'd like to do in 2016 is try out some new cons to exhibit at, and I've heard nothing but positive comments from attendees and other vendors about this one. I'll list more details about this show once I'm confirmed for an appearance.
After missing last year's spring show due to financial reasons, I make my return to Long Beach Comic Expo next February! I'm working very hard to ensure that I'll have at least some new material for attendees who find their way into Artist Alley! Expect to see more copies of the Cosmic Force graphic novel (new to this show), as well as the new printed book version of Mongoose Mondays. I may have some "freelance book" surprises there as well. Stay tuned!
Just two weeks after my Fanboy podcast appearance, is my return to this fantastic online radio show, which deals with all things paranormal. Despite the subject matter, hosts John and Bea Brugge were big fans of The Figure-Of-Speech Mongoose and Mongoose Mondays, which I'll be discussing in great detail here, as well as some other projects I'm working on.
