Curls Studio will be at MoCCA Arts Festival 2017

Curls Studio will be invading the Big Apple next month for MoCCA Arts Festival -- Table I 264A on the second floor. This is our first time exhibiting at MoCCA, so it will be exciting and fresh -- like a crisp bite of apple! 🍎

MoCCA will take place April 1 and 2 from 11:00AM to 6:00PM at the luxurious and modern Metropolitan West located on West 46th Street in New York City between 11th and 12th Avenues and will encompass two floors of exhibitor tables, a gallery of original art showcasing the work of special guests, and pop-up cafés throughout the space. Price of admission is only $5 per day and will grant attendees access to the Fest including the exhibitors hall, on-site gallery space, and programming. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Children under age ten are free.

The official image for this event is above, created by Becky Cloonan -- a guest of honor at the show, along with Blutch, Cliff Chiang, Drew Friedman, David Lloyd, and Gene Luen Yang.

The MoCCA Arts Festival is a two-day multimedia event -- Manhattan's largest independent comics, cartoon, and animation festival with exhibiting artists displaying their work, award-winning honorees speaking about their careers and artistic processes, workshops, lectures, and film screenings.

All exhibitors who got accepted are listed online at www.societyillustrators.org/exhibitors-list.

Recap: Washington Wizards Collecti-Con 2017

The Washington Wizards Collecti-Con was an interesting event even though the Wizards lost this past Sunday. Curls Studio was glad to be a part of their inaugural Collecti-Con.

I got to meet Slapshot, the Washington Capitals hockey team mascot, who was at the game to celebrate G-Wiz's birthday along with many other team mascots. Thanks to everyone we saw at the convention and game.

Be on the prowl for new convention announcements coming soon!
