FallCon 2010 is Saturday October 16

FallCon, Minnesota’s annual fall comic book convention, is fast approaching. Once again I’ll be exhibiting.

It’s a really fun event and the folks at the Midwest Comic Book Association really do a terrific job making sure everyone has a good time. While I don’t really do comic book art per se, I do work in animation and cartooning so the organizers graciously let me squeeze in at a table. There will also be plenty of other top-drawer Minnesota artists on hand who work in comics professionally plus a few big names traveling in from outside the midwest (here’s the complete list). For me FallCon is a great opportunity to rub elbows with them and soak in the fun, creative vibe. I always come away feeling inspired and energized to keep drawing and pushing myself.

FallCon will be Saturday, October 16 from 10am-4pm at the Progress Center on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Admission is $7 or $6 if you bring a canned food shelf donation. Kids 9 and under are free. There’s free parking and the first 500 attendees get a free grab bag. More info at www.midwestcomicbook.com.
