Awesome Con is April 18-20, 2014

We hope you can join us later this month for the second edition of Awesome Con DC on April 18-20, 2014 at the DC Convention Center. Last year was super amazing and it looks like this year will blow our socks off! Curls Studio will be located at table I12 in Artist Alley. Check out the awesome map above so you'll know where to find us.

Joe and I are scheduled to be on four panels, including a DC edition of The Other Side of the Table, which we've hosted at NYCC twice. We hope you can join us at table I12 as well the panels listed below -- plus we might have some surprises up our sleeves...

The Other Side of the Table: Lessons from Creators (Washington DC Edition)
Saturday, April 19, 2014
10:45 AM to 11:45 AM
Room 209B
Creating your product is only half the work it takes to succeed in the comics industry. What about the other half that we don't see as clearly after the product is released to the world? This important panel will explore what it is like to be on the other side of the table, as a creator. We will discuss what it takes to exhibit at conventions, promote yourself, gain a loyal audience, and hopefully survive the life as comic book creator in today's wild west industry - from the POV of professionals already behind the table. Moderated by filmmaker/comic writer Joe Carabeo.

Panelists: Joe Carabeo, Carolyn Belefski, Steve Conley, Matt Dembicki, Arsia Rozegar
