Couple bits of business I should mention here. The annual WonderCon comic book convention will be held in San Francisco this weekend (from April 2 through April 4), and there are a few related things I'll be doing...
The SIREN Comic Collection will be on sale at booth AA 130 in the Artist's Alley. Assorted SIREN contributors will be flitting in and out of the booth like beautiful butterflies, and I'll probably put in a stint on Sunday.
Comics writer Brian Schirmer will have a table at SP 07 in the Small Press section, where you can pick up his self-published anthology "Worlds Apart," featuring a five-page story illustrated by yours truly. I'll be hanging out there at some point on Sunday, too.
Also noteworthy: Thursday evening, the Academy of Art University is hosting an Alumni Comic Book Panel with various grads-made-good, hosted by Marvel talent scout C.B. Cebulski. The panel runs from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Morgan Auditorium, 491 Post St., and is open to the public. Cebulski will also be reviewing student and alumni portfolios earlier in the day.
Speaking of which, here's the WonderCon Portfolio Review Schedule.
And finally, the lovely folks at the Cartoon Art Museum are throwing a weekend party on Friday night, from 8:00 to 11:00 PM. The party is a benefit for artist Ed Hannigan and co-sponsored by The Hero Initiative, which provides a safety net for your favorite comic creators in times of medical or financial crisis. Not sure if I'll be able to make it to the party, but it's a great cause and I wanted to give 'em a plug.
