This Saturday, November 10, I'm exhibiting at Super Heroes for Hospice in West Orange, NJ! I'm also giving a presentation about how to start exhibiting and selling your comic art at conventions. Here's more info:
There will also be a "Getting Into Comics" lecture series. Admission is free, but pre-registration is encouraged to reserve a seat, as seating is limited. Please register by emailing your request to SBallas@BarnabasHealth.org - include each lecture that you'd like to attend. On the day of the event, remaining seats will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
I'm super excited to give my first lecture! I've been working on my power point presentation a lot :) It'll be super awesome and informative! It'll be great to meet all the other fascinating comic artists too.
The event will also hold a canned food drive for communities hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. Donations will go to Last Resort Emergency Food Pantry (Asbury Park, NJ). Super Heroes for Hospice attendants can pick a free comic for every canned good they bring (limit 5 per attendee).
In the aftermath of Sandy and now the Nor'easter storm, things have been grim for many people. If you can make it, please come to Super Heroes for Hospice to help in a small way by donating food or getting comics for a family you know that has lost much - because besides needing the basics to survive, people also need to be cheered up!
