2015 Spectrum Fantastic Art Live

There used to be the Illustrators Annuals that served as a "yellow pages" of artists for Art Directors to peruse for job if you want into the Science Fiction/Fantasy art market you need to be published in Spectrum. This is the show/con for that group - a one of a kind show. Make business contacts, meet peers, attend lectures and workshops. Highly recommended

2015 Lexington Comic & Toy Convention this week!

Get ready folks, because this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 13-15th, 2015) at the Lexington Convention Center in downtown Lexington, Kentucky you will be able to meet local and national level comic creators, actors, cosplayers and comics/toy vendors in one place!

This will be the fourth year for this show and if past years are any indicator expect a great pop culture experience! As stated before, prior to this show you had to drive hours to get this level of guests and vendors. Jarrod continues to work very hard to make this show better each year!
