Hot on the heels of Comicon, James "Cadbury" Silvani and I will be playing to well and truly the biggest home crowd ever.
Anaheim Convention Center, August 19-21
This is the Walt Disney Company's second foray into their bi-annual fan expo. I was at their first one two years ago and it looks like Disney is seriously upping the game for collectables, exclusive events, screenings, guests and most important - letting three scruffy comic people onto their Magical Expo Floor to draw things for people.
For those just joining us, we are comic artists who have produced a very respectable number of Disney comics for Boom! studios over the past two years. James Silvani (Muppet King Arthur, Darkwing Duck), me(Amy Mebberson: Monsters Inc., Muppet Peter Pan, The Muppet Show, Muppet Sherlock Holmes) and Allen Gladfelter (Cars). We are all nutzoid Disney/pop culture fans and consider it the highest honour to get to draw comics worthy of the Walt Disney/Pixar name.
Booth C335: James, Allen and I will be there all 3 days taking sketch commissions and selling limited numbers of our books: Darkwing Duck (The Duck Knight Returns and Crisis on Infinite Darkwings), Muppet Sherlock Holmes, Muppet Show: Family Reunion and others.
James and Allen will also have original comic pages from Darkwing Duck and Cars for sale.
So, if you are coming to D23 and would like a one-of-a-kind sketch of your favourite Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Star Wars character (or any combination of the above), here's what you can get:
I will also have my Fun Sizes original works for $20 apiece.
If you would like something bigger, we go up to 9x12" in size and the prices start at $30 for a single figure.
Every drawing we do is one of a kind. If you want Mickey as Wolverine, you got it! A picture of your little girl dressed as Belle? Absolutely.
Every drawing James, Allen and I do will be marked with a special D23 exclusive stamp, something you will not see anywhere outside this expo.
After only a few days, James and I are now CLOSED to any Expo commission pre-orders.
If you'd like to keep up on announcements like this, please follow our twitter feed ('amymebberson' and 'SilvaniArt').
Please check out James and my Tumblr feeds for ideas on the sorts of things we love to draw and start thinking up your ideas!
If you're on the East Coast and going 'awwww, I can't make it out there', James and I will be exhibiting at New York Comic Con in October. But details on that con and commission pre-orders for that will come later.
