Heroes FCBD 2012 mini wrap up…

I had a great time with some really talented and generous people this past weekend. I've always had fun at FCBD no matter which side of the artist's table I've been on…and this weekend was no exception! I shared table space with my fellow Sketch Charlotte cronies Herc Petmezas and Bridgit Scheide at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC. Going in I felt a bit overwhelmed by being a guest at my LCS, but I hit the ground running and my table mates and the staff at Heroes made me feel right at home. I had an absolute blast drawing for everyone! Here are some pics from the event taken by Heather Peagler and a pre-event shot from Rico Renzi.

Special Thanks to: Shelton Drum, Rico Renzi, Herc Petmezas, Bridgit Scheide, Heather Peagler, Janis Renzi & Izzy, Shelley Drum and the rest of the staff and artists who made this such an amazing event! Also, thanks to all the great parents who brought their kids out to have a good time, it really starts with you guys! :)

FCBD at Heroes and the 2012 Sketch Charlotte Anthology

Gotta say that I'm pretty stoked to be doing another FCBD, especially at my LCS: Heroes Aren't Hard to Find! I've attended many a FCBD at the shop and it's kind of surreal to be on the other side of the table this time...can't wait! If you're in the area please stop by and say hello! There will be tons of free comics and incredible artists doing free sketches all afternoon!

The 2012 Sketch Charlotte will actually make its debut this weekend at FCBD! 24 pages of all new, all original material from members of SC. The best part is that copies will be free while they last! Contributors include Stan Ford, Herc Petmezas, Henry Eudy, Joseph Mitchell Jr., Adam Bastuscheck, Jeremy Brooks, Rico Renzi and Brandon Padgett with an introduction by Seth Peagler. Several members of Sketch Charlotte will be participating in this year's event!
