Battle for Baltimore: Otakon this weekend!

That’s right, kids! I’ll be in Charm City for the big, bad Otakon this weekend. If you’re looking at the Artist Alley map and scratching your head saying to yourself, “Where’s Dirk?”, fear not. I’m sharing a massive table space with my buddy Garth Graham of Finders Keepers at tables CC03-04.

I’ll also be hosting the “How to Draw Comics” workshop on Friday from 1-2pm, and duking it out at Super Art Fight! at Midnight on Saturday night (or Sunday morning for you pedants in the audience).

Here are the gory details:

How To Draw Comics
Friday, July 27, 2012
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Workshop 2 (BCC 343-344)

A professional artist for over 10 years, Dirk will discuss taking a comic from an idea to a finished page and how it is more than just drawing a few pictures on a page. Dirk, the creator of the graphic novel series “Paradigm Shift”, breaks down the creation of a comic from start to finish. This workshop covers scripting, thumbnails, layout, character and background basics, inking, and digital touch-up using live and interactive demonstrations.

Super Art Fight
Saturday, July 28, 2012
12:00 AM – 2:00 AM
Panel 3 (BCC Ballroom I-II)

Super Art Fight is here to melt your face and boil your brain. Artists take on a massive 6-foot-tall canvas with mystery topics and outlandish opponent attacks, only to have their plans thwarted by the Wheel of Death, a random idea generator that spins every five minutes.

Come out to the madness and look for us!
