Evan Dahm West Coast Tour 2012
Hey dudes I’m going to fly out tomorrow to the west side of the country to go to some conventions. If you’d like to go to them to maybe buy a Rice Boy book or say hello, here is that:
From March 16 to 18 in Anaheim, CA, I’ll be at Wonder-Con! This is my first time doing this show, and my first time anywhere near Anaheim, so I hope it goes well! I’ll be at table SP-048 with Kel McDonald.
On March 29th at 7:00 I’ll be doing a panel on webcomics at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, WA. I will be doing this with friends/colleagues/luminaries Spike Trotman, Aaron Diaz, Erika Moen, Dylan Meconis, and Emily Ivie.
From March 30 to April 1 in Seattle, WA, I’ll be at the Emerald City Comic-Con! Loved this one last year, and this time I’ll be way up front in booth 200!! I can’t remember who all I’m sharing that booth with so I just won’t list any of them!!!!
Feeling that stressy/excited convention-season feeling again. Looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!
Heroes Con 2010!
Last weekend I went to Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC, the biggest and best comic convention around my area. Heroes 2009 was the first big comic show I ever exhibited at, in fact, so this marks one year of going to conventions! I hope to keep doing it for a while. And now I have a bit more experience and am confident in my assessment of this as a really excellent show, representing a wide variety of material very well, run by nice people who are honestly passionate about comics. Loved it.
Early on Friday I saw a Calabash and a T-O-E, wow wow wow—
These two were very nice and had such lovely handmade costumes! It is the first time I’ve seen anybody dressed as any of my characters so it was pretty mind-blowing and pretty much made the show for me.
I was flanked for the duration of the show by Paul
…charming gentlemen both. We of the webcomics universe were smartly arranged all together in a big central island, so I had the pleasure of talking to and commiserating with a bunch of webcomics pals; Joel, Kate, Meredith, Rich, Chris, David, Brad, Danielle, and Erika among them. It’s exciting to be a part of this webcomics thing; I think they (we?) are making some of the most interesting independent work out there right now. This is the future, guys. I am becoming more and more of an evangelist about online self-publishing.
Here’s a look down Webcomics Way:
And here is a T-Rex. Anthony draws a mean T-Rex, I tell you what-
And here is the first Spider-Man I have drawn in nearly a decade, for someone’s sketchbook-
And here is a colossus I drew for Joe’s sketchbook-
On Sunday there was a nice little after party at Heroes aren’t Hard to Find, the comic shop which hosts the show— a really nice shop, too! I got the first book of Lone Wolf and Cub (mostly because it was small and I am moving soon and trying to get rid of books) and read it on the way home and it blew my mind, it is so good.
So! A fine comic convention and worth attending if you’re in the area next June. Thanks to Shelton and Dustin and the many other people that put this thing together!
Stumptown Comics Fest
Back from Portland! A very cool city with much of the hipness of Asheville, but bigger and more functional as a city. I did very well at the convention and will be back next year unless there is some catastrophe. Did not take enough pictures but here are some…
Aaron’s crazy-person house:
Kel, with whom I shared a table:
Our handsome table, all set up. I will probably just get a whole table next year; it’s getting tricky to fit everything I have.
I made a few little originals, but the only ones I sold were the portraits of T-O-E.
You can see that it’s in a sort of strange room for a comic convention— not terribly large, and with very low ceilings and awful acoustics. This did not, however, prevent it from being an extremely successful and fun convention!
And here is a picture for Brian's sketchbook, which is themed “Owls, dogs, owls & dogs, owldogs, and Lost.”
