Emerald City Comicon, March 2-5!

eccc_petportraitsI’ll be exhibiting and paneling at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle this weekend, March 2-5! Come find me at the Topatoco booth, #1102,  right in the Skybridge.

I’ll have all of my books, a selection of prints both new and old, stickers, and more!

We recently adopted a real sweetheart of a rescue dog, Teddy “Roosevelt” Meconis. Teddy was a neglected stray, so he’s a liiiiittle behind on his healthcare. To help pay his vet bills, I’ll be hand painting wee original watercolor commissions of your very own money pits pets! 

I have a collection of ridiculously ornate miniature picture frames (collected over years of visits to art supply shops, and thrift shop expeditions), so your doggo, tabby, gerbil, python, or rancho will not just be painted, but enshrined.

There will be a limited number of commission slots available, so come find me ASAP.

I’m on two delightful panels this year as well!

First, join me for a topic that I’ll be moderating:

The Power Was In You All Along: How to Turn your Weird Talents and Unusual Obsessions into Authentic, Original Art

The creative world is full of copycats and trend-followers. It’s tempting to go with the crowd, but what if the real secret to success is…originality? And what if your best ideas lie hidden in your weirdest skills and most unusual passions? Join panelists Lucy Bellwood (Baggywrinkles), Kory Bing (Skin Deep), David Malki ! (Wondermark), and Dylan Meconis (Bite Me!, Family Man) as they explain how to turn your passion for underwater basketweaving (…or whatever!) into a creative goldmine.

Thursday Mar 02, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Room WSCC 604 (6th floor)

Then join me on Saturday as I participate in this fabulousness:

The World of DRIVE

Come hear in-depth, behind-the-scenes talk about the fan-favorite comic, DRIVE. Join creator Dave Kellett and special guests as they talk about the 9-year scifi series, and this weekend’s ECCC premier of the huge new hardcover. And since DRIVE was nominated for “Best Long-Form Comic” by the National Cartoonist Society, you’ll also get sneak peeks of what’s ahead in that long-form story! You may even win a giveaway of the new book!

Saturday Mar 04, 2017, 2:45 PM – 3:45 PM
Room WSCC 604 (6th floor)

I’ll see you all there! You can follow me on Twitter for any show-related announcements.
