016 Pros in Cons

Convention CaricatureIn this bear of an episode, we explore the art of the Convention.  We talk to Tyler Johnson and Kirby Rudolph and their experiences with selling their art and doing caricatures at the conventions. In the second part of the episode, I talked with veteran Convention Comic Guy Lar DeSouza who has gone to several conventions with Blind Ferret to meet fans of the comics he draws for (Looking for Group and Least I Could Do) and the artwork he creates.

Here are some links to the stuff we mentioned in the episode:

Tom Faraci pays me a short visit on his way to interview myself and a few other caricature artists for his documentary “American Caricatures”.  We chatted a bit about his project before getting into a huge disagreement about retail caricature prices.  Our friendship is still up in the air. Maybe ice-cream can fix it.
