Two great shows back-to-back!!!
I’ll be at the Cincy ComiCon Friday, Sept. 6 – Sunday, Sept. 8. I’ll be set up at table C-10, right next to OOSA artist Alexis Ziritt (C-11). I’m really impressed with what they’re doing with this show. Lots of great artists, big name sponsors and exhibitors, and a ton of fun events and programming. With their line-up, you would never know that this is the convention’s FIRST YEAR. Way to come out of the gate, guys! Buy your tickets and check out all of the goings-on at www.CincyComiCon.com.
The very following weekend (Sept. 14th – 15th), I’ll be at SPX. And not just me; OOSA artists Alexis Ziritt, Toby Cypress, Liz Suburbia and Andrew MacLean will also be there. You can find us on our own OOSA Island at tables 44-46. SPX is going to be HUGE this year with over 600 artists planning to be somewhere in the room. Visit the SPX website to find out everything you need to know. www.spxpo.com
OOSA artist Alexis Ziritt has worked in comics (Mekano Turbo, The Package) and has provided illustrations for several publications (WWE Magazine, Complex) and companies (Patagonia, The Levitation Project). Recently, Alexis was asked to design the summer tour shirt for the band MASTODON.
To celebrate this conglomeration of awesomeness, OOSA is going to give away two tickets to see Mastodon (along with opening acts ASG and US Christmas) at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on August 14th.
It’s pretty simple to enter: If you want a chance to win the two tickets, just email me at [email protected] with the subject line “MASTODON ROCKS”. I’ll pick one winner (you’ll get both tickets) at random on Friday, August 9th and notify them via email. That’s it. Good luck! (The contest has ended)
Remember: these two tickets are only for the Mastodon show at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on August 14th. If you can’t make it to that show, there is no need for you to enter the contest. Please visit the Orange Peel website for specific information about the venue and the show itself.
Also, be sure to check out Alexis’ work here on the OOSA site, as well as at his personal site: www.aziritt.net.
I’ll have a table set up at my home-town convention, the Bristol RobCon, on July 27th. I’ll have shirts, original art and prints available. I’ve also
duped invited my friend Rico Renzi to join me for the day. If you don’t know, Rico is an amazing colorist who has done work for a ton of comic book companies on titles like Adventure Time, Avengers, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Deadpool, Loose Ends, Powerpuff Girls, Scott Pilgrim, Wolverine and Yo Gabba Gabba. He is currently doing the colors on Collider written by Simon Oliver with Robbi Rodriguez and Nathan Fox providing the art. Anyway, if you’re in the Tri-Cities area, come out and see us.
In other news, I’ve been invited to participate in a Custom T-Shirt show in Fredericksburg, VA on August 2nd. Tailor Made 3 will take place at PONSHOP Studios and will feature several designers from the Northern Virginia area. I’ll be featuring the Liz Suburbia and Toby Cypress OOSA Tees, of course. As soon as I get more information about the show, I’ll be sure to post it here. In the meantime, check out last years show.
