It was the first convention of the year for me, but Fargo Moorhead Comic Con was fun. I also made some valuable connections there. I’m sure all of you readers will be eager to hear about that.
It’s a small show but it’s the first of 2016 and important for me because I need to promote Sunnyville Stories.
I did meet a number of people there. Besides telling them about Sunnyville and handing out copies of Free Sunnyville (still available!), I met many more talented individuals, some of which I had met at past events.
I met Justin Currie of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Justin is the illustrator of graphic novels such as Cassie and Tonk and Quackers Wants to Fly. I chatted with him for a bit, talking about digital artwork and ImagineFX magazine. He did give me a card about his upcoming work titled Rust and Water.
I met local artist Eric Evenson who draws illustrations & cartoons. While he didn’t have an online presence, he did provide me with one of his flyers. Anyone who’s interested in cartoons from Eric can write to him at: Eric Evenson, PO Box 1281, Fargo ND 58102. Also present was Noel “Scotch” Anderson. He draws for the local newspaper, the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead and I managed to get a copy of his Urban Dinosaurs comic book too.
A very valuable contact I made was for the bookstore An Open Book in the town of Wadena, Minnesota. I told them about Sunnyville Stories and plan to follow up with them soon; they’ll get mailed samples of my work.
I had a blast at this event; it was much fun. So in conclusion, how about we close out with some more photos?
