Making a living in the real world while creating art is challenging, especially in comics. It doesnâ€™t come with a handbook, but, whether youâ€™re a hobbyist or about to turn pro, with the right skills and a good attitude, you can make it happen. Indy comics veteran Dirk I. Tiede brings over 10 years of experience and panel of seasoned pros to cover the things they didnâ€™t tell you in art school: how to get noticed, marketing yourself, money management, dealing with setbacks, and working as a freelancer.
Event Location: Main Events (CTCC Ballroom ABC) – (Seats 2750)
Date: July 14, 2012
Time: 9:30 PM – 11:30 PM
Guests: Garth Graham
The “Greatest Life Art Competition In The Known Universe” returns to Connecticon to rock the main events room to its very foundation with what has become their biggest show every year. Watch in person as these artistic titans clash against some of the world’s finest illustrative talent and you — The fans — pick the winner with your cheers and applause! But watch out for the nefarious “Wheel of Death”, a random topic generator that guides the evening and ensures that anything can and will happen.
