I had a great time at Sarge's Comics Etc last weekend. It was Free Comic Book Day. I did my best to advertise that I would be down there drawing pictures. I drew A LOT of free robot sketches. For those of you who see me at cons, know that it was a great deal to get a $10 sketch for FREE. All the kids were awesome. They came all dressed up like their favorite super heros. All kids love robots. So I was a big hit. Sarge's treats the guess artists like gold! I'll be going back next year for sure. Thank you to all who supported this indi comic artist by purchasing Rob Bot and my sketcbook. Anyone who missed out can still purchase books from my shop here online or pickup original art. Thank you everyone so much!
Free Comic Book Day is upon us. Do you know what free comic book day is? It's when you're local comic shop buys a WHOLE bunch of special comics to give away free. It's not free for them. They do it as a gift to the local comic book collecting population. They also do it to inspire the interest of comics in us all.
To support FCBD this year, I'm heading down to Sarge's Comics in New London CT. You all come to my conventions and support by purchasing my $10 robot sketches. Well, I'm rewarding you all by doing free robot sketches for any kid that comes in that door on Saturday. At least while I'm there.
So, if you love comics, want to love comics, are thinking about getting into comics or if you kid has no hobbies and you've tried EVERYTHING ELSE, come down to Sarge's and show them how awesome reading can be. Yes. I said reading. Sure, there's lots of pictures in there, but often there is a WHOLE lot of text. Come on down, give support to a local business, get free stuff and buy a few things while you're there too. I look forward to seeing you there and I hope I give away TONS of free sketches. If not, my robots will be very said and most likely revolt.
I have been put on the list as one of the many talented artists that will be piling into Sarge's Comics on May 7, 2011. There will be many free comics jumping off the shelves as well as local comic book artists who would like to sell you some of their goodies. I will be offering up some FREE ROBOT SKETCHES to all the kids that attend. YES! FREE!! I will also be selling comics and original artwork.
I attended Free Comic Book day last year as a patron and was impressed by Sarge's performance. I was greeted by Darth Vadar and a slew of imperial stormtroopers, speeder bike piolets and more. There was a HUGE display of free comics and TONS of local artists. I was amazed at the sheer number of folks that came down to support Sarge's on such a momentous day. Please come down, bring a friend, bring the kids, bring a pile of money and support your local comic culture. It is indeed Free Comic Book day, but remember that your local comic shop is providing this day to get you jazzed up and get into reading. Reading is important kids so grab some goodies and have a good time!!
As Spring draws closer and the weather gets warm, I'm reminded that Free Comic Book Day is closing in! What is free comic book day you ask?? Well! It is exactly what it sounds like. Head on down to your local comic book shop and choose from a wide variety of free comics! AND! often, the comic shop owners talk a bunch of local artists to come down, do free sketches, sell books, meet and greet and all sorts of other fantastic things. Last year, my family and I were greeted by Darth Vader and a pile of his troopers. Good stuff for everyone. Stay tuned, I'm going to try and make an appearance at one of my local shops. Here's a link for you to follow and check if you shop is participating. I look forward to seeing fans of all ages at the nation wide event!
