Super excited for my first time exhibiting at C2E2 this weekend! (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo.) If you'll be in the Chicago area, or know of friends who are, here's the scoop:
Friday April 24 - Sun April 26. Show floor hours are Fri & Sat 10A-7P, with programming running til 9p. Sun 10A-5P.
Tickets are still available for all days! Ranges from $30 for one day bought online to $70 3-day pass paid at the door. Kids get in for $5 on Sunday!
It's at the South Building At McCormick Place. 2301 S Lake Shore Dr., Chicago IL 60649. Looks like the closest subway is taking the Green line to the Cermak-McCormick Place stop. If you're coming from the suburbs, you can take the Metra orange line to the McCormick Place Metra station.
Special guests include Stan Lee, Jason Momoa and Finn Jones from Game of Thrones, Chad Coleman from The Walking Dead, and many others! There are all kinds of fun programs to see like stuff about medieval armor, to learning Chinese, how to combat cyber-bullying, to learning about the comics business. See me and other amazing artists in the Artist Alley too - I'm table N17A! Right by the food court! Could be a strategic location - we'll see... Interestingly, artists with tables near the front of the alphabet are in the back corner...
Kids may enjoy my workshop "Sketching from Life with Mindy Indy" on Sunday from 11:30a-12:30p in the Family HQ (room N427bc).
Looking forward to a very exciting trip! I'm very lucky to be staying with some great friends in town :) (Secret tip for cartoonists wanting to do conventions far away). This time, since I'm flying AND taking Megabus later on to Michigan, I need to pack smartly. Southwest Air still has 2 free checked bags, but you only get 1 with Megabus. Gotta be under 50 pounds too. Ok enough blogging and more packing to do!
I always have to check the weather before doing laundry...
