Calgary Comic Con Recap

If you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, it’s Wednesday, where’s the new art?!” Just scroll down a bit to see a photo of a new sketch. ^_^

Thanks so much to the fans that came out to the Calgary Comic Expo last weekend, you guys basically cleaned out the booth! First, congratulations to all the Shuster Award winners; there were several amazing creators who won this year, including Emily Carroll, Fiona Staples, and the team behind “La Fille Invisible” (The Invisible Girl). Please check out these super talented ladies!

If you happen to be a Redditor, you probably saw this image that made the front page:

This clever gentlemen was actually talking to the booth next to ours about airplanes and art, but it’s neat to be seen in the photo that thousands of people enjoyed. Thanks to those Redditors who noted the art in the background and gave credit!

Things were so busy we didn’t get a chance to take a lot of photos, but here are a few, just click on any of them to see a bigger size:

Here’s a sketch from the show!

Just a couple more bits of news. First, thanks again for participating in the email and Facebook contests we’ve been running; prizes and winners are still being contacted. So, sorry for the delays! There’s been a postal strike in Canada. But, don’t worry, the prizes are on the way!

Second, the last of the $20 prints are still available online, but will be gone very soon. And finally, we’re excited to announce that the first printing of “Femina & Fauna: The Art of Camilla d’Errico” is sold out! Dark Horse still has a preview of the book online, and it looks as though Amazon has less than 20 copies left. Yikes!

Well, that’s all the news for now. Thanks again for being so supportive at CCEE, and on Reddit, and everywhere else. There are lots of fun things planned for July as we get closer to San Diego Comic-Con, so look for more announcements soon!
