My Convention Schedule for Anime Blues Con

As we get closer to the Anime Blues Con 2012, here' s a list of the Art Track events I'll be a part of:

Artists of ABC
This is where the fun begins! Want to meet the featured artists as well as your favorite creators from Artist Alley? Come mingle and talk shop with the Artist of ABC 2012.

Writing for Comics and Manga 101
Manga isn’t all about the art. You have to have a story. Join Action Lab Entertainment President, Shawn Pryor and IDW writer, Sean Taylor as they break down the ins and outs of storytelling.

Breaking into the business of Comics and Manga
If you are a writer, artists or future publisher, this panel is for you. From Manga, to comic books, to animated and live action feature films, the influence of the comic medium on pop culture is astounding. Find out how to get your ideas from your mind and to the printed page. Join Dave Beaty, illustrator for DC Comics, Shawn Pryor, President of Action Lab Entertainment, and Sean Taylor, writer for IDW, for an in-depth conversation on the business of Manga and comic books.

Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa -
Graphic Novels, Music and Movies

Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa has been a graphic novel fixture for 17 years as readers have followed Shianndrea Toshigawa, AKA Jetta, on her journey to become the Chosen One of the Toshigawa Ninja clan. Now, the books climatic end is fast approaching. With a live action movie in the works, the creative team that brought you this independent hit would like to celebrate this 17 year journey with Anime Blue Con! Come meet MAW Productions creators, Martheus Wade, Kevin Williams and Janet Wade with special guests Alex Zemke as they talk the past, present and future of this exciting story. This panel will be kicking things of with live music from Iyse Gibson and D’Voted as they perform tracks inspired by the Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa - Defiance soundtrack! Don’t miss this celebration! (I may jump in on the "future" part of this to discuss the upcoming Turra: Gun Angel book.)

Hope to see all of you there!! It's going to be an AWESOME time!!
