2015 starts of right with a fun local convention right here in the North Bay! LUMACON takes place Saturday, January 17th at Herzog Hall in the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma CA – just a stones throw away from my home in Santa Rosa and two stone throws away from San Francisco.
Believe it or not, the North Bay is home to a lot of cartooning talent and much of it will be attending the show: Stephan (Pearls Before Swine) Pastis, Paige (Jane’s World) Braddock, Brian (Last Mechanical Monster) Fies, Brent (Astro City) Anderson are just a few of the recognizable names. Spread among the professional cartoonists will be young up-and-comers eager to learn about comics from how they are made to how they are sold at conventions.
I’ll have a table throughout the day and will also be on a panel about self-publishing. It’s a great opportunity to see the local talent and I hope to see you there!
