I attended EternalCon, a local comic convention yesterday. The cool thing about this convention is the location: the Cradle of Aviation Museum. As you walk through exhibits highlighting Long Island’s strong aeronautics history, you also get to walk through Artist Alley, gaming centers, and racks of comic book stacks. I have attended a few conventions here, a wine expo and a chocolate expo, and I always have a good time.
Here are a couple pictures to hold you over as I am still tinkering with fixing up the site!
I had been quite cryptic in my past few posts about a project I have been working on. Now that it has been published, I am sharing it with you here.
In December I attended a local comic convention and met a comic industry creator who I hit it off with. He was fantastic to talk to and gave me great advice. I emailed him after and the product of those emails is the work I will have on his comic creator news website.
My first article has been published – today actually. I interviewed Ram Devineni, the comic book creator of Priya’s Shakti. Priya’s Shakti is a comic book tackling the pervasive rape culture in India, but it’s anti-sexual assault message transcends borders and is a message for the whole world.
Please take your time to read this, I worked so hard and Mr. Devineni was an amazing person to interview!
