A highlight for me was a visit from Judge Reinhold. He purchased several prints and greeting cards, was truly supportive and graciously posed for a picture.
Wizard World Comic Con Austin was a great show on many levels. Wonderful support and purchases from attendees and the opportunity to visit with friends, fellow artists and fans, both returning and new.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by and visit! The artist alley area was jam packed with talent. Here are just a few of some that I know and a few I had the privilege of meeting for the first time. Be sure and visit their links to see how great they really are and support their efforts:
On a crisp November morning in 1889, our world was transformed with the appearance of a dimensional rift behind the sleepy cottage of Conrad Rookwood Corrigan. The mysterious world populated by Imaginary Friends was revealed and humankind would never be the same.
Imaginary Friends: A Cross-Dimensional Field Guide introduces the basics of this monumental event with facts and details of the discovery, character studies, the formation of an exploration team and even pop culture influences.
This 31 page pamphlet book written and illustrated by Chet Phillips focuses on the magical revelations gathered from the “Age of Imagined Enlightenment.”
“A must read for anyone interested in the future of cross-dimensional alliances.”
— Argus Pringlesheet
“The quintessential introductory guide for learning about Imaginary Friends.”
