CALGARY COMIC EXPO COMETH

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 22, 2014, 10:06 PM

Did you know that the Calgary Comic Expo is the 5th largest comic convention in the world?  I'm not sure how many people attended last year but I know it was BUTT LOADS.

It's hard to believe that 2014 Calgary Comic Expo is one month away!  I'm so excited to have a booth again in Artist's Alley... I'll have some exclusive prints available, but really I'm just looking forward to chatting to the amazing crowd again, I had so much fun last year. 

If you haven't got your tickets, be sure to get them online ASAP... www.calgaryexpo.com/... I think they've started to sell out on certain days. If you're planning on attending the expo, swing by and say hi, I'll be at Booth i12.
Cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris, I see you're working on your color skills! If you're looking to push your work even more I thought it'd be worth making sure you know about the HiFi Color for Comics Kickstarter. The book has been updated from the original publication and has already passed it's first stretch goal.

Future goals will see new content like color theory for comics, coloring toned artwork and coloring for the web amongst others coming alongside new artwork from creators such as J Scott Campbell, Katie Cook & Humberto Ramos to name but 3.

What's more you automatically get access to the on-line HiFi Academy if you get a digital or print version of the book and incentives include options such as digital or print versions of the instructional book, portfolio reviews and follow up with one of industries top colorists, one on one lessons on line or even a 3 day comics coloring bootcamp in sunny Arizona!

If any of this sounds interesting to you or you want to know more then check out the campaign page, the more artists that pledge the more we all get out of the book as those awesome stretch goals bring in new content! www.kickstarter.com/projects/h…

So I check it out, and YES. Consider me in.  Not only do i think the product will be great quality and useful, and with some heart and passion behind your work, but basically I need to work for you.  ;)   Thanks for letting me know about it, I pledged in at the Mentor level.  Cheers and good luck!  Let me know if you need any assistance or support! :)

Thanks Chris, I'm glad the information was useful :) Although I work as part of the studio the book is Brian and Kristy's project, we're all just helping to try and get the project in front of people we think would be interested. The original pubished book is something I genuinely found useful and I think their is a lot of great information that can still be mined on rereads... plus getting those stretch goals added would be great for new content! Any spreading of the word you can do is much appreciated, from all sides judging by the positive response I've had so far.

Having received feedback from Brian myself before I know you'll find the portfolio review and follow up really valuable too.
 
Thanks again!

Thanks, you gave me the push to message everybody and in one case this really paid off as the entrant lost track of the project page and so couldn't submit his work:panic: !
