This week: Forthcoming!

October 4th, 2010

October seems to be GO month. I’m busy almost every day until Halloween! Here’s what I’ll be up to this week:

Wednesday, October 6
Youth Workshop at The Queens Public Library
Steinway Branch
14-01 Astoria Boulevard
Astoria, NY
4-5 PM

October 8-10
New York Comic Con
Jacob Javits Center
New York, NY

Please note: I am not tabling at NYCC this year. I will be around the convention Friday, and possibly part of the day Sunday, but I won’t be selling books. I am on one panel, on Friday morning:

Panel: The Other Side of the Table
Panel Room 6 (1A21)
Friday, October 8
11:15 am – 12:15 pm

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 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, and gain a loyal audience – from the POV of professionals already behind the table. We will be giving away one signed copy of Ultimate Cerebus Guide to Self-Publishing by Dave Sim to one lucky audience member.

Join creators Jimmy Palmiotti, Raina Telgemeier, Bryan J.L. Glass, Carla Speed McNeil, and Carolyn Belefski in this conversation, moderated by Joe Carabeo.

UPDATE: I’m also doing two signings at the MoCCA Table! I’ve been told their table is in the Artist Alley. Come say hello and get a sketch from me:

Friday, October 8, 2-2:30

and

Sunday, October 10, 1-1:30.

Next week, I’ll be attending the opening reception of the Ink Plots Exhibit at SVA, and then hitting the road for California–massive post about that coming shortly!
