Convention Time! – EMERALD CITY COMICON 2012

Hey everybody…I’d say convention season was upon us, but at this point conventions run all year long and never seem to stop.

But since I don’t go to them all I’m merely gonna talk about the ones I DO attend. In this case, I’ll be at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, Washington, this weekend, 3/30-4/1/2012. I’ll be sitting at table C-04 alongside my pal Chris Giarrusso, and I’ll be selling stuff, drawing stuff, being chatty.

I will ALSO be hosting a panel at the show called “Super-Blank: The Game Show”. Here’s what worth knowing about that:

Super-Blank: The Game Show
Room: 2AB
Time: Saturday, 3/31 – 1:00pm – 2:00pm

Get ready to match the comics stars! Strikingly similar to the classic TV game show, The Match Game, a panel of comics “celebrities” will fill in the blanks as contestants from the audience try to match them for points and prizes. Expect humor and shenanigans with comics pros in a way they’re rarely, if ever, seen. Scheduled to appear: Chris Giarrusso (G-Man), Jay Faerber (Near Death), Jason Howard (Super Dinosaur), Brad Guigar (Evil, Inc.), Pia Guerra (Y the Last Man), Ian Boothby (Simpsons Comics), and more. Hosted by Gregg Schigiel (SpongeBob Comics). Contestants can sign up for random selection at the start of the panel.

That’s gonna be fun. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a recording of it for a future episode of “Stuff Said”, my podcast, which if you don’t listen to it…um, please do? It’s free!

    Gregg,

    I brought my daughter to the ECCC today and she was devastated to find out that we had missed the time allotted for sketches from the Adventure Time crew. The Squidward sketch you did for her saved the day. Seriously, she loves it. Thanks again.

      Thank you, Jon, for stopping by and more even for your comment.

      As a fan of Adventure Time I can appreciate the disappointment but am honored to have been able to save the day (a feat Finn & Jake would surely appreciate). It’s funny, as you both walked away, Chris (G-MAN) who was sitting beside me told me, “you should have seen her face as you were drawing…she was loving it”, which, really, is a total thrill for guys like us doing the all-ages/kid-friendly/general audience work, so thanks again to you Jon, and your daughter as well, who, as Squidward said in the drawing, obviously appreciates art.
