NY Comic Con Day Two

The second day of wandering the floor and despite being there almost eight hours, I left feeling that I hadn’t seen everything there was to see.  Thankfully, I am coming back tomorrow.

Another year, another con

New York Comic Con 2016 is here and I’ve managed to keep my attendance streak going.  Here are some pictures from my first day there, Thursday.

 

2015 Comic Con Pictures

This past weekend I attended the 2015 New York Comic Con.  As usual I took a bunch of photos and I plan to upload them shortly.  So please keep checking in as I will be throwing them up online over the next couple of days.

Another year, another con

ReedPop’s New York Comic Convention is in full swing.  I just finished day two and have been having a blast, walking around, saying hi to friends that I never see and looking at all the great stuff that’s for sale.  A good convention will always gets my creative juices flowing and so far this has been a good con.  I’m hoping that this year I will actually be able to tap into that feeling and get back to creating art.  I’ve been writing this story off and on for a while now.  I’m planning it as a three issue limited series that will introduce the characters, help build the world that they inhabit and just generally entertain the readers.  There are two more days left of this con, and I hope to start working on model sheets and stuff that I can upload here for your enjoyment.

The End of Another Con

This past weekend was the seventh annual New York Comic Con by Reed Expo.  Although it ran for four days, I only went for three days. Last year I got a four day pass and only went for three days, so this year I thought I should only get the three day pass.  It also became harder to get passes so I took the first thing I could get, which was the three day.  Apparently attendance rivaled the San Diego Con, which if true, is amazing.

I hope to post all the pictures I took, 99% of which are cosplayers, but for now I’ll leave you with an awesome Mazinger.

 

NYCC Day 2

Sorry for the delay, here are pictures from the second day of the New York Comic Con  Enjoy, and as always feel free to leave comments.

NYCC Update

Sorry for those who have come back hoping for more pictures of this past weekend’s NYCC but I haven’t been at my computer in a few days.  I hope to have them up by the end of this week.  I also have some video from the Anime Masquerade ball.

New York Comic Con Day One

So despite not having any samples to show I decided to go anyways.  I got together with my friend Andre and we walked around the Javits, checking stuff out, meeting up with old friends, buying stuff and picking up swag.  A good time was had, and

Post Convention High

So I’m back from C2E2 (the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo) and while I didn’t return with any job offers I did learn some stuff (never too old, eh?).
Basically the way most companies handle portfolio reviews has changed. Gone are the days where a long line of kids with portfolio in hand would get seen one by one by editors who ranged from helpful to “over it”. Now what they do is have you sign a waiver which you staple to photocopies of your work and then submit to them. If they like your stuff your name will be on a list that they’ll post. If it’s not, “thank you come again”. While this is great for them and actually allows them to review your work with more time and by committee (which will helpfully allow for a better fairer selection process) it’s tough for those of us who are submitting portfolios. Basically it means that we aren’t there when our work is getting critiqued so we’re not getting any feedback. For all intents and purposes you’re throwing your work into this vacuum with your fingers crossed.

Unfortunately my name wasn’t on the list for either of the big two, and to date I haven’t been contacted by any of the other companies I dropped my work off with (Boom, Dark Horse, etc.). I was, however able to speak to Mark Chiarello, the Art Director for DC. We had a frank, positive and greatly appreciated conversation about my work. I hope to follow-up with him and show him that I have taken his advice to heart. He pointed out some things to me that I had been wrestling with in my work that I’m hoping will help me resolve those issues. We’ll see how it goes. At the end of the day though, all the advice in the world is no substitute for getting back to your art table and just drawing.

One last note about the con, I hope to upload some pictures over the next couple of days, so keep a look out for them.
